A Billion votes.

India, a country of 1.2 billion people with a demographic dividend of over 60% of its population. The country goes to poll, Election 2014 where we see a single political party garnering majority number of seats, since 1984. The issues raised during the campaign were governance, anti-corruption and other pragmatic issues which are significant in today’s times. The point which i would like to stress is that almost all parties, though tried wooing the voters on communal basis to an extent, concentrated mostly on the current issues faced by a common man. And these ideas were brought by the voters too. The change which we are witnessing, along with the high turnout of the country’s youth for voting is quite different from the past elections, making it very important for our future.

How is it important?

The demographic dividend can be utilized only when the government creates those opportunities for the public to utilize while the public needs to stand up to make an avail of it. This seems to be happening, because once public stands up for the grass root problems, the government will have to follow.

The Election involving a billion votes had opened a box full of opportunities not for the fact that a particular party has come to power, but for the reason that people are coming of age. They are becoming more and more vigil, when they give an opportunity to someone they do expect their returns. It would be a uphill task for the government to be sworn in to address the expectations of the people, a billion in number.
