India: Why I voted 49-0

Arby K at A View From My Disjointed Laptop explains why the blogger had to vote 49-0 (refused to vote): “By choosing to vote, I will be endorsing the current system of elections. I will be settling to meet my short term objectives sacrificing the long term ones. So, I choose not to endorse an electoral system which brings unstable governments, indecisive leadership and regional fragmentation of the nation.”
