Indian Elections are Fueled by Booze and Cash

I had the pleasure to take a colleague's copy of The Hindu newspaper last week. In the news, I saw that the police arrested and filed cases against hundreds of people in relation to buying votes. It was either with cash, or with spirits. Too bad I can't find the link right now :(

Now that the elections are over in my state (AP), I guess this is over. This year's election went smoothly enough, and there were no riots or anything like that that happened.

That's good news, as I was afraid to be caught by some fundamentalist mob at some point...
