Badly need a change in approach…!

I was just looking at the poll percentage of the 2009 elections. Since two phases of elections were over..I was really worried on seeing the poll percentage. The number of peoples turnout for voting was considerably less when compared to 2004 elections. Recently in the second phase of elections only 55% were recorded.

Phase 2 Elections poll turnuot

State                         2004         2009
Andhra                     72               68
Assam                       69               62
Bihar                          57               44
Goa                             59               55
J&K                          45               46
Jarkhand                  57               47
Karnataka                62                55
MP                              49                45
Maharastra             55                56
Manipur                   56                 65
Orissa                        68                 55
Tripura                     67                 80
UP                               46                 44
Total                        59                 55

ps:- source TOI news paper dated 24th april 2009 & all numbers in percentage (%)

Only Tripura has did a good job. I don’t think those peoples are influenced by Internet and online campaigns. But the most influenced Bangalore has registered only 50% o votes.

What happened to the online vote campaign, online awareness on the importance of voting. Seemed to be a election with more number of young votes…but less number of votes registered when compared to 2004 elections. Does this proves that the approach was totally failed ? what is the result of the “n” number of NGO’s working on this for past years ?

Wish to have some good numbers in the third and final phase of elections. And that too for sure …in tamil nadu we need a change….lets see…!

One thing I am sure that…..we have to change the approach for making the peoples vote. Let’s think differently.

Let’s learn and let others learn…!

Got to watch a wonderful short movie (advertisement) on the awareness of  child education. It’s a social initiative from Surya’s Agram Foundation towards the importance of education. This was a combined production of Agaram and Vijay tv. Surya also invites volunteers to work together for this noble cause.

Hats off to surya for his extrodinary works towards the betterment of our society. I have been always inspired by surya’s onscreen and offscreen activities. And his NGO Agaram foundation is special in its own way. I will reveal some interesting facts about agaram foundation in a seperate post.Happy watching….!
