Set 1: Essay On An Election Day

Last Monday was the day for election in our area. It was Maharashtra Assembly Election. Assembly elections are also known as Vidhan Sabha elections. In our constituency, some good, hardworking and dedicated candidates were contesting the elections. Every citizen above 18 years of age was eligible to vote. Some days before the elections, volunteers visited house to house requesting the voters to cast their votes.

Schools and Colleges in our town were closed on that day. All the Government offices were also closed. The traffic on the roads was less. This helped people to visit their respective pooling booths in large numbers. Their was excitement in the environment.

a Although, I was not a voter, I wanted to spend entire day watching the different sights of our pooling booth. My father took me to a nearby polling centre where he was to cast his vote. We had to stand in a very long queue of voters. I saw man and women of all ages. Some seemed educated and some uneducated. All were standing in discipline to use their right to vote. Some police officers maintained perfect order and discipline at the polling centre. People knew their responsibility of maintaining peace and order.

The polling started from seven o’clock in the morning. One by one voter entered the polling booth. My father too went inside the booth to cast his vote. He explained me the entire voting process after he returned.

I was shocked to see the interest of the voters. There were separate queues for old, disabled and blind. I saw many old men and women standing in the queues. I also saw that some old people had come on their wheel chairs to cast their vote. They took the help of their servants and other helpers. I even saw many blind people standing in their respective queues.

There was a heavy rush in the morning hours. However, little later there was a quiet period for couple of hours. As the closing time came nearer, once again there was a great rush of excited voters. Everything was going on smoothly and peacefully.

The polling stopped at six o’clock in the evening. An exciting day was over at last. However, Those who were already standing in the lines before six o’clock were allowed to cast their votes. I went home thinking how fast literate as well as illiterate people were becoming aware of their voting duty as the citizens of a democratic India.

Elections are very important now-a-days. In democratic countries, the representatives of the people govern the country and make laws for it. Election of the representatives both for the Parliament and for the Provincial Legislatures take place in our country. Every person has a right to vote and is free to express his choice.

Last year in my town, an election was held for electing the chairman of the town area. Three candidates contested. One candidate was supported by the Congress as he was a rich man. Two old workers of the Congress did not like it and contested. One was the Principal of a higher secondary school. The other was a poor social worker. Every body living in the town was very keen about the election. The whole town was divided into three groups. The principal was supported by the teachers, students and the educated public. The rich man was supported by the Congress party, government officials, and the shopkeepers. The poor social worker was supported by the common people.

The contest was very keen, as all these candidates had some weaknesses. The Congress candidate was not much educated. The principal could not serve the town as he lived outside the area. The social worker was very poor. So nobody was sure of his success and everybody had an equal chance to win or lose.

On the polling the whole town was full of hustle and bustle. I myself went into the camps of all the candidates. Everyone of them was hopeless and thought that he was defeated. The polling was very keen. It was generally seen that the father was supporting one candidate, the mother was voting for the second and the children were working for the third. Polling went on through out the about 5 p.m the voting was stopped, the ballot boxes were sealed and sent to Aligarh for counting.

Next day, the result was declared. The poor social worker supported by the public was declared successful. When the news came to the town, the successful candidate was greeted and garlanded.
