India, the World’s Largest Democracy Takes Her Responsibility and Right to Vote, Seriously

National Elections in India are coming  beginning on April 11 and ending on May 19.  Imagine, there are nine phases and yes, people stand in line for hours to cast a vote. Then they  soak a finger in dark ink to verify their  responsibility has been completed.  In 2017 there were 1.339 billion souls in Incredible India.

An Indian friend  told me that voting is very important to the poorest of the poor. . . the Daliet or Children of God so named by Mahatma Gandhi.  It is the belief in India  on voting day that  everyone is equal with one  ballot .!

Blessings to India on this momentous election!
