I Voted!

Today's election day.
Actually I voted for the first time in my life. When I woke up in the morning, my very first thought was about "I'm going to vote"! Usually my first thoughts are my little prayers to "Pillayar", to make the day go peacefully. But there are days, even before I think of my prayer, someother thought will occur first. Like every year on my birthday, anniversary or any of my family's birthday or the day I'm going to India for vacation - like important days, my first thoughts are about that day, before I say my little prayer..
Likewise, today is very special for me - caz, I'm voting for the first time in my life! I never had voted in India, as my name never appeared in any voters list. So, this year, I have been eagerly waiting for this day :)
I was bit disappointed that there was not much of a crowd at the school, where we went to vote! I expected some line, so I can chat with few people, extend the excitement of waiting to Vote! But, no line, and it was like a walk-in straight.
The Ballot was a like an entrance exam questionaire - long list of candidates for several posts.
Well, lets see who wins to be the next President!! I can't wait to know the results this time, caz I voted :)

to Priyamudan:
I don't know the political party, what majority of Indians living in US support, but I guess many like blue.
And I cannot disclose who I voted for :) Ofcourse, my right to privacy!
