          In jungles of Gujarat, there are only lions and one person residing. These voting officials also have to set up a voting camp for that one guy in the forest.

            The principle of the Indian election commission is: democracy be at peril, if the opinion of even a single voter is not counted. There’s a polling station, made in the far hinterland every year so that just the one person that lives there, can vote!!!

                        No use of this . The politicians in power can ensure about the availability of polling booths but not food , water , shelter and toilets .

                            It is better to live in a democracy than autocratic country like china. China kills its own people for just criticizing govt. I agree china is developed than India, but still India is far better to live than China where I am forced to praise Xi JingPing and clowns in CCP.

                                China “just obey” , India “we will cross mountains,rivers anything to give you the chance to vote”. Can’t wait for the day India is wealthy and looks back at the people that built its institutions and traveled by elephants to get grandpas vote counted.

                                                Why many people are comparing India with China ?
                                                It isn't like China wants to be a Democrat . And they are good where they are .
                                                We both are proud of our system and know how to make things out of it .

                                                          I love it. I think this is also producing confidence in the people (the individual) of India. 3:27 They were so honored that the government would go out to receive their vote, Thier opinion. This creates a sense of self worth, like all of a sudden: "My opinion DOES matter".
