“Awarding the people who live in the moment,
The noble who write and capture the best in life,
The bold who reminded us what really mattered…
Savoring the experience of quality time.”

I started this blog in July 2013 with the aim to educate people (especially middle class, educated youth who mostly don’t have interest in politics) about the election process, help them take informed decisions and encourage them to vote for stability & growth. I have been amazed at the interest the elections has generated among youth not only in India but also among Non Resident Indian community. People have realized the importance of voting and want to make their vote count. This is the the most beautiful gift given to them in a democracy. People in offices, markets, housing societies, social media (facebook, twitter, blogs) are discussing / debating about the elections. This is very heartening. Youth which was dis-interested in election process now realizes impact of instability on economy, their jobs & career.
Over months aim has been to develop this blog into a one stop shop for Indian Elections 2014 with as much information possible put here. I would like to thank my friends who encouraged me to write, my friend Nishant who set up the blog, my family for bearing with me (as I have to spend considerable time on internet for research) and readers / followers on Facebook, Twitter etc. who have made this blog a success. Without your support this would not have been possible.
