Democracy, the dictionary describes it as " Government by the people, exercised either directly or through elected representatives". Interesting definition.
Bihar, goes to polls today. Violence, booth capturing, private armies, failure of law and order are all trademarks of what usually happens during the ordeal called General Elections in that state.
Vow, the dictionary defines it as "An earnest promise to perform a specified act or behave in a certain manner, especially a solemn promise to live and act in accordance with the rules".
Well, most of the folks out here are familiar with the election vows, which apparently do not seem to adhere to the definition above.
Well browsing through channels today, I came across this candidate who is contesting from Jehananabad in Bihar on behalf of LJP. In an attempt to bag votes this father of 9 childrean has taken a vow that he would have a tenth child only if he wins this time. What a serious oath!!! I have never come across somone who has ever promised a brigter future to our nation!! Better living and civic amenties can wait. What an oath!!
May his tribe increase!!! ;-)
