I was sure as I entered the village school, the site of voting for two nearby villages, that I would be confused at the electoral ballot. Intuition, you can say. The village is not my native, the reasons are vague why I am holding the voting right from this place. The lines are in formation from as early as 7.00 p.m. Yes, you would be surprised that the voting has begun. The official at the desk was at ease randomly taking the voting slip, noting down the particulars and asking for signatures so as I was curious to follow a way was still not good enough.

I somehow remembered the sign of a party that is in alliance with the party I wanted to vote for and pressed the button by its sign. Who says democracy comes easy way.

Social life was largely restricted in community sense. The cyberspace is today filled with ambiguous energy yet we are associating in new manner of extended social life on basis of interests, hobbies, etc.  Knowledge as we know of now has changed in its meaning and deliverance. As we are exposed, many open-ended questions arise. Knowledge is a continuing factor and when it persists we understand that we should and can avoid further difficulties. Thus these open-ended questions about world chaos, social indiscipline, issues like pollution, gender equality/parity become a consolatory afterthought. What should we be doing next? There are no active and legalized platforms where we can share and elucidate on various thought-provoking scenarios. Importantly when we find a case related to these scenarios …
