no belief that their vote will change anything.....honestly speaking what are the policies that any of the parties have that will change the life of an ordinary mumbaikar?

Does anyone promise the following :

a) right to travel on local trains with dignity?
b) rehabilitation of slums, arrest the slum lords?
c) better infrastructure, better transport solutions?
d) being No. 1 in industrial investment ?
e) better sanitation
f) affordable housing and bring down the real estate prices - it is absolutely criminal to have such high prices in Mumbai.
g) safety to citizens who say Bombay instead of Mumbai

sorry about the cynicism in my earlier post.

PLEASE VOTE - YOU COULD MAKE MORE OF DIFFERENCE VOTING THAN STAYING OUT OF ELECTIONS.

Hi TCP,

Just saw the Obama cartoon - award by popular demand.

on the other hand, they refused Mahatma Gandhi's nomination 5 times on various grounds - one of which was for being a patriot and being confined to India.

Obama gets it for being the president of the country which has been in all the wars of the last 3 centuries. Peace through war is an amazing concept that only the Americans could have pulled off. Obama's nobel award announcement came on the same day that the America spoke about the new super bomb. Somebody quipped that he probably got the award for making peace with Hillary....

But all said and done, Obama has been a good thing to happen - first coloured person to be the leader of a superpower. Maybe the nobel prize eggs him on to really great things...cheers to that thought.
