Voting Dangers

The newspaper showed a polling place where there was minor violence. Our city voted last and there was not this kind of trouble. Many areas suffered kidnappings, murder and all manner of invasion of their right to vote.

The Indian government went to great expense to protect voters by bringing in special troops. Here women line up for their turn in the voting booth as a guard stands at the door. A little artistic touch as we view the scene past the trigger of the solder's rifle.

Voting is serious business in the world's biggest democracy.

What courageous women to line up and vote in those conditions.
