The Finger!

No, I don’t mean this finger in Milan.

I mean this one:

Please click on the image to get a larger image and zoom in on the finger to see an ink stain.

I was interviewed by a young lady reporter of a local newspaper as I exited the polling station after voting this morning.  She took this photograph after asking me to pose for it with my finger showing the ink stain as proof that I had indeed voted. She had kindly sent me the photograph via WhatsApp and has promised that I will feature in her article tomorrow in the local paper. If the article does indeed appear, I shall blog about it tomorrow.

India’s gargantuan elections to our Parliament is in progress and Pune where I live,  voted today. After quite some time, I was able to meet a lot of my friends from the Joggers’ Park who had come to vote there. Since I have stopped going there for my evening walks, I had not seen many of them for over a year now. Arrangements to give preference to ladies, senior citizens and handicapped people were excellent and I did not have to stand in a queue for too long as my son who had escorted me had to.

I have done my bit. Now to wait for the results to come which will take another month as it will take that long to cover the entire country.

    Six weeks until Indian voters know the result. Wow ! .. That’s fast. You are lucky. The majority of British people voted for ‘Brexit’ three years ago, and we are still waiting to hear the final ‘outcome’ ! … Ain’t democracy grand ?
    Big John recently posted..No ! .. It’s not “Game of Thrones” Day.

    Incredible that with modern technology election results can take so long. Seems like more and more delays getting our results in the U.S., too.

  4. I am not surprised it would take 6 weeks, all the areas, all the people…
