That Indelible Signboard...

Almost a month ago, when elections were the in-thing, I was travelling to Shimla with my parents by road.

Just as we entered Himachal Pradesh, I noticed shops and houses decorated with the same signboard.

The signboard read:
कृपया वोट माँगने से शर्मिंदा न करें |

The underlying message is very obvious - The people are really pissed off by the politicians. And they are not going to vote at all.

Do you think this is the right attitude? What are your views concerning this topic?
