Whom r u going to VOTE ?

With elections in the visible distance the campaigning process is in the full swing. Roads are filled with traffic Jams as our so called 'Leaders' are delivering 'hate' speeches at every nook and corner of the city. Every junction has a check point with a police legion to check if huge sums of money and liquor kind of things are moved. News channels are telecasting LIVE speeches ! Half a dozen bizzare debates at least each day and these debates most often than not turn out to be a disaster. Political parties are spending monstrous money on canvasing. Actors are acting as the catalysts in this movement ! Billions of rupees are being spent in these months time.....

I am 24 & this is the first time I am going to vote ! I have applied for the voter card last time around but I guess no one cared to gimme one :-( My name in the current voter card is filled with blunders which I cannot even explain. So I suspect even this time It might get a little difficult for me to VOTE. But lets try :-) I am not so excited ;) several reasons.... I dont think anyone who is going to reign for the next 5 years(hopefully) is going to make much of a difference in our lives(I hope I am wrong).

I have made up my mind that I will vote for Jai Prakash Narayan's Lok Satta party(Not a huge fan of his) At least they are not spending money as other parties do :-) and more than anything else the degree of non-sense talks is low.
