Namastay,

Many are good at teaching lessons or pointing out mistakes...how many follow?

I voted for LokSatta, a party under leadership of a former IAS, and that canvassed in elections without spending money at all, particularly in my constituency. When I said that I voted for it to my friends, they laughed at it. Because they think "good party" will never come to power so why waste our vote is what their argument is. How funny. We are asked to give our openion irrepective whether it got backing of majority or not.

People of our country cry foul when they got cyclones, floods, and give expressions to cameras as if we are looting their money and enjoying....but when the elections come, these same people sell their votes or vote for one who belongs to their community. I have no pity for them, not even to myself if I did vote for wrong party.

Let the MPs who spent a lot enjoy the return, though they will get their own bad karma repaid.
