The title should itself explain the context of this blog, but if it is still confusing, this article is about those voters who truly doesn’t care about who drives the country or who are too upset with the politicians.
So I was having a chat with my family about how people vote and about the weak organization of election committee, at that moment my aunt pointed out that lots of people will swing to any side if they are provided with mere incentives like two bottle of beers or for few bucks, now this is true, but the problem here is that my aunt don’t even realize that she falls in the same category, it’s just for her the incentive is patni-dharm, it’s not like my aunt is only one with this problem there are many like her including my mother and my sister-in-law. They will vote to whomever their husbands ask them to vote. Same goes for lots of unmarried girls who follow the direction of father and brother during elections, even I did that initially because politics didn’t interest me, I didn’t care who won. Apart from myself this negligence comes from many places.
One of my friend told me the story about her school teacher, which was absurd for me. Her teacher told her that during the Election Day when she went to booth, she went blank, she didn’t know anything about any candidate or party, then she saw symbol of cooker and since the first thing she do in morning is put her cooker on stove, so she gave vote to the candidate with cooker symbol and their goes everything with cooker.
Now, let’s talk about the celebrities. These celebrities influences the voters on another level. Bringing in the right people is definitely working for political party. Even though many people mock television celebrity, politician knows their important and BJP very well knew the important of ultimate Indian bahu, Ghar ki Tulsi, Smriti Irani. She did lose the Amethi, UP, election in 2014 against the son of congress, Rahul Gandhi, but the margin by which she lost was small, hence people are expecting that she might even win this time. Son of Punjab, Sunny Deol, Shatrughan Sinha, Hema Malini, Gautam Gambhir and many more are brought into this party so they can help these undecided voters, decide.
I don’t know if all these people are entirely wrong, because I am still somewhere near to surface than deep end, but we all will be standing united when it comes to facing consequences of this election.
