congress flying high


There are always tons of political posters, flags and adverts all over town. For the newbie to Mumbai you would wonder if they are always having elections or what! My understanding of it all is that the way the political parties here garner votes during elections is by 'buying' the population, specifically the poorer sections of society. Hence, they will sponser religious ceremonies, festivals, etc to help get their name out more and to help people remember 'who was really there for them'. I'm sure there are other views on this.. but thats my foreign perspective!
