may for many results…!

Results for Higher secondary board examinations (12th std ) are expected to be announced on the beginning of the second week of may 2009 (8th to 10th may). Till now government has not confirmed with the results date.

Please check these official links on the updates of result announcement date from education department.

Avidly waiting for the results and to see the progress of 2009 students when compared to 2008 students. I will update with a detailed comparison of the results in this blog on the day of announcement. Get back here soon…!

May is for many, main results (exam results , Election results, IPL ) and its life , fate and game. Hope the hard work should not be failed for first and last ;the honest work should not be failed for the second. May month may not be a good one for all but may be good for few who wins.

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.
