Ever since I turned 18, I have this desire to exercise my power! Unfortunately, I have never been able to do so even once because since the time I turned 18 I have been living away from home. Living away from home for last 9 years, in different cities made me busy in things that would have otherwise be taken care of by my parents and then there were studies, projects assignments and deadlines to take care of. So, basically, cutting a long story short, I never got a chance to show my might! This year however, I had decided that come what may I will not miss this opportunity. After all its once in 5 years that I get this chance. So, I steeled myself to go through the tedious bureaucratic process, long queues and disinterested babus. So, I started with the first step which surprisingly was easy or at least made easy by the amazing team of jaago re! (which provides information on various forms, registration details, dates etc.). Then, I took all the required documents (which included 2 simple forms, an address proof and an age proof) to the designated office. Now, while I was still grasping my surroundings and preparing myself to spend hours in the decadent office, one babu called me and very politely inquired about my business at the place. He (may there be many more like him!) analyzed my form and helped me by taking it to his colleagues , speaking to them on my behalf and lo! my job was done in less than 15 minutes! As I thanked him and came out with the receipt in my hand, I was smiling because finally I have the power- the power to vote (what else were you thinking!) and in the coming elections I am going to exercise this power! Are you going to do just the same?
For all you folks who still havn't got themselves registered. It is very simple. Visit www.jaagore.com for more details. The website is really helpful for first timers.
