Nothing showcases the diversity of our country as beautifully or as starkly as India at the polls. When we stepped out to exercise our own franchise today, aside from the gargantuan choice at stake, it was the sheer dynamism of the crowds that thronged the polling grounds that really stood out. In what is perhaps one of the rarest displays of equality in this country, people of all religions, castes, creeds and economic backgrounds queued up behind one another to cast their vote and in that moment, we truly were all the same.
This spurred us on a mission to see what it was like in other phases of the elections thus far and naturally, we found the overarching theme to be similar.In true Homegrown fashion, we couldn’t help but chronicle the beauty of the largest democratic act in the history of the world, in images. Scroll on to bask in the same.
