General Elections

The other day someone asked me why I was so indifferent towards the elections in India. Sigh… here is my response:

My interest in the polling/elections is… err… Not much interest, to be honest. For me, it's a bit like a football or cricket match. I would like it if the team I support wins. But even if it doesn't, I couldn't care less. It simply doesn't matter THAT MUCH to me.

That said, there is one difference when it comes to politics (for me) - In the case of a football/cricket match, I can pick a team to support. When it comes to Indian politics… I don't support any party. I simply can't. I see nothing in them that is worth 'liking'. Hate is too strong a word and given that I don't have any interest whatsoever in the political parties, I wouldn't use the word 'hate'. But I disapprove of all of them. Perhaps some more than the others.
