Shyam Sharan Negi enjoyed voting and did not miss any opportunity to enjoy this pleasure. It is said that democracy is based on the belief that special power lies in the common people. Voting is a way to realize that special power, to exercise your rights. Seeing the name in the voter list, going to the polling booth, standing in the queue and then voting for the candidate of your choice – the whole process is like a celebration. Now if there is a celebration, there should be excitement and joy.

Voting is a responsibility, but not a responsibility that becomes a burden. It doesn't demand anything extra from you. It doesn't demand anything that takes a lot of strength to complete, but every step of the way is a lot of fun. Vote has importance only when it is given. If you keep it with you then it has no value. And the person who has to give it also increases its price. It cannot be lavished on anyone just like that. Therefore, before voting it is very important to know about the candidates and understand their policies.

Voting line makes one realize how in this country everyone is equal and everyone has equal rights. There is a feeling of connection with each other. There may be no prior acquaintance with the people standing in front and behind in the line, but there is a reason that keeps everyone there. That reason is the desire to be a part of positive change.

Vote is the means by which anything can be changed. Its biggest joy is that it gives us the power to take decisions. We take decisions. Choose and support someone based on your ideas and beliefs. In this way, a vote makes us an active member of the country and society.

Many unique experiments are being done to make the voting experience even better in this election. At some places a lucky draw is being held and at some places people are being welcomed with poha and jalebi. In the elections, a lot of efforts were made to ensure that every voter reaches the polling booth and every vote is counted. We get a chance to have fun while fulfilling our responsibilities.
