The author discusses the upcoming Lok Sabha polls in India for 2009. He believes that India has prospered despite a corrupt and inefficient government that has only its own interests in mind, not that of its constituents. The author also questions whether voting makes any difference. The author believes that it does, if only because it is the only way for people to exert some influence over the course of their lives and the direction India is to take in the future. The author also talks about the economic recovery of the country.
