Indicast # 192: The greatest show in democracy

Sunday, 20 April 2014 05:30 Written by  Published in Indicast

Five years India breaks its own record of successfully conducting the world's biggest general elections. In this one we doff our topis to India's election commission. In related news, two new books on Congress give us a glimpse of what Dr Manmohan Singh went through in his two terms. We talk a bit about where he will go from now. Aditya narrates a list of interesting candidates that the elections have thrown up including the usual suspects like Mr. LK Adwani, who will contest yet again at 86. We round it off with some superstitions that our politicians like to obey and how, after relentless efforts, India is now finally polio free. (Picture credit: Reuters)
