Ignorance is not bliss.

This afternoon I sent out a simple text message to my whole address book;
“Have you got your voters ID yet?” And the ghastly replies I got completely mortified me.

“No, why?” was the most common reply; which got my blood boiling at two stages. At first when I saw the ‘No’, and then again at the ‘Why?’

“No.” this brutally honest, undaunted answer, isn’t going to answer any of your questions that sound like, “Why can’t the government do anything about the potholes?” or “Why can’t the government ensure more security to avoid moral policing?”
Who are you asking? The government? Which government? The one YOU didn’t vote for?

And, “Why?”

No, really, was I just asked that by 90% of the people who replied? If you’re living in an opaque, soundproof bubble, you are excused. It’s surprising how oblivious educated, up town residers can be.
With the elections round the corner, and the ceaseless, persistent awareness campaigns going on like Lead India and Jaago re, you really have wild courage in you to ask a question like that.

If you’re one of those inexperienced citizens of India who think the procedure of getting a voters ID is difficult, let me enlighten you to know that it’s not.

1. Print out Form 6:

2. Fill it up and submit it to your Electoral Registration Officer, who will give you Form 001 to fill up.

3. Go to your Designated Photographic Locations (DPL) and get your photograph clicked and voters ID made right then.

Tip: Go around 6.30pm to get your photograph clicked if you aren’t passionate about waiting in queues.

Of course, I will have to consider the some of you who are of the stubborn, undutiful citizen kind: all your silly debates against voting, are only going to improve your futile argumentative skills; a sweet suggestion would be to bin them.
You know deep down under you are wrong so just go ink that finger.

I don't think I am wrong, you are just closed minded

I think if you dont vote then you dont have the right to complain about the country's short commings. Voting is one fundamental right we are all obliged to follow/ execute.

@ mathew.

whats matts take on the whole voting thing?

He's Gandhian, he doesn't want to vote. He believes in non violence and non compliance.

non compliance for a bad cause.


so the next time he drives over a pothole or something and complains, tell him the HE is at fault for its existance.

Been there done that doll. We've just fought over it. So I'm not arguing further, it's all about free will. Let him vote if he wants to.
There's no way he's going to be convinced. He's super mad at me right now.
I've been trying since the state elections. Nothing has worked.

75% of india belongs to the rural areas and this major population can be swayed by falso promises of wheat and rice (kinda like bribes if u think abt it) and as the educated intellegentia of the country, t is our DUTY to try and counteract the effects of these votes by putting our 2 cents in.

I know and agree. It's all said. By saying more, we'll be wating our breathe.

so if he really is aiming at non compliance, let it be non compliance with the rural folk who'll lead us to the downfall of our nation. tell him its shameful to be non compliant with the progress of our country.

Haha, I'm not saying any more Whit. I've had enough of a talk with him.

Mathew Mammen said...

Bullshit bullshit and more bullshit. Thank Ritansha Patni ladies and gentlemen

Ritansha Patni said...

best you could come up with mat? sad. really.

Mathew Mammen said...

Teets, It's pointless trying to talk to you, you are so full of yourself even if your wrong its pointless to try and prove it. You just won't listen so I give up! You win!
I shall speak of you in public forums no more till you decide to listen.
