NOTA my choice - for a better governanceIt's 8:00 am, of 23 April 2019-the voting day. Tia was excited to cast her first vote. She had heard about her rights to vote from her elders, Friends, College & church. Everywhere it was the same discussion & the same questions - You need to vote, it's your right, etc.
She was ready to go & vote but then suddenly, looked upset. She had many questions going round & round in her mind. Whom should I Vote? Why Should I vote? What is the need of my vote? Will the candidate that I gonna vote stand strong & fulfil his duties?
It was her choice but how? She sat down in her room & started thinking of all the possibilities. She had many choice, many candidates standing in the election but which one is the ideal one.
The "Choice" make it possible to shape the world according to one's preferences & Voting was one of it. She made it, now crystal clear as whom to vote went to the booth, did the NOTA & came out relaxed.
She said to her friend, I had too much choice & it was a trap.
I had to deliberately eliminate the choice in order to get to my decision & by restricting my choice it made me understand that If I don't vote, they will do it for me(by hook or crook), Why give them a chance & show my concern to the government.
Voting is my right & NOTA my choice - for a better governance from the government.
