Why Kashmir Votes More Than Bombay!
By Manuwant Choudhary
A friend put this question to me that a survey in Bombay newspapers suggest that more people in Kashmir exercise their right to vote than in Bombay.
Isn't Kashmir demanding secession so why do they vote?
And more importantly why doesn't Bombay vote?
Well, one way to explain this is that people in worse-off states vote more...like in Bihar, UP..whereas in South Bombay where things work more efficienly people prefer to carry on with their businesses and life rather than standng in long queues to vote.
But post 11/26 this may also change as many more people have got themselves registered.
Moral of the story: Bombay is worse off now than it used to be.
So don't vote.
