There is a good OpIndia article that is a copy paste of Quora post explaining the full process of election.

The IIT-IAS election officer explains it lucidly: https://www.opindia.com/2019/05/iit-gra ... ered-with/

You can use that info to knock all stupid claims.

ECI tweeted this, and later pulled it out. People say pressure.


Thanks SwamyG..

Reminds me of the night we watched the India vs Pak ODI in the 2003 world cup where Sachin hit the Rawalpindi Express for a six. We pulled an all-nighter, toasting each boundary with a swig, got pretty drunk by half-time. What a night that was.

And what a night this will be........

:evil: Posts like this increase the need for stronger anti-jinx. Zor so bolo, BJP will lose onlee :(( :((

It ends here. It ends today.

The age of kaal bhairava, veerabhadra and mahakali has began....

The gods gather and demand it be so. The flames of the homa reach to the heavens as more ghee is offered...the sky grows dark, the wind picks up and birds and animals scatter....

A circular cloud whirls around Mount Kailasa...

I went and bought Samosa, cut mirchi and Johnny Walker (red label). SHQ will make pineapple kesari. As the counting starts I will go for couple of hours to the local theater where about 150 Namo fans are expected to gather, and watch the results come in.

It's been too much in terms of emotions as stress over the last month. We all know how important these elections are. I'm trying to rack my brains about a time where so many opposition parties have come out viciously with what ever kind of propaganda, often funded by even international agencies to make sure that one party cannot win. When we look at what the opposition has manufactured in terms of "evidence", the spit and scoot lie approach. The threat of using violence and actually using violence, all to make sure that Modi does not win.

What's at stake for ME when it comes to who wins?

Congress and Rahul Gandhi with their history of church building as well as scams
Chandrababu Naidu and his history of temple looting at Tirupati, Mega Church building. Where did he go wrong? I used to adore this guy for creating 'cyberabad'
Jihadidi and her history of brutal violence and killings as well as mass immigration into Bengal. Muslim appeasement for votebank.
KCR and the breakup of Andhra for his own personal gain, Mega Churches and incredible freebies of free houses for a vote bank.
Behenji and her history of mega statue building to prop up her own coffers. She now states that she wants to be prime minister.
Akhilesh Yadav and running UP for his own Yadav caste politics.
Kejriwal and his long line of defamation cases for sprouting lies as much as he can about the opposition. For which she has had to publicly apologize for.
Kamal Hassan and his anti Hindu agenda, of shouting Hindu Godse was a terrorist to a large Muslim vote bank crowd just for votes.

Only a Avatar can save India from such Goondas, crooks of the highest degree. It is said that every time Bharat was in the time of terrible crisis, one man who was inspired took towards saving Dharma because of the collective consciousness and pain that came up from millions suffering. My opinion is such that, such another time of suffering is great and that Modi while not a Avatar, is pretty close to what is needed.

Jai Hind! I pray the NDA gets another 5 years from the forces of Adharma.

It is Seven O'Clock AM in Ayodhya.

(and Half Past Nine PM south of Dixie, by da way).

Dat Day of Reckoning Has Cometh.

Part A

O ye of steadfast faith, and O ye whose mind and heart are rent by doubt -

Question: Who Is The True King of All Men ? Who is He That is Exalted in Heaven, Earth, and the Netherworld ?
Answer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMINF5u9HU0

If you answered correctly before clicking the link, Rejoice and Take Heart! Thou shall be delivered without fail for the Lawd neva eva fails His people.

If you stumbled, gather thyself up O wretch, and choose your side and your savior without delay or doubt. For Dat Day is upon Us, and all men of decency shalt align themselves on the side of Dharma.

Part B

Exhaust not thyself at this Hour of Judgement by drink, debauchery, or the comfort of thy woman'z bosom.

Instead, Prayze da Lawd and Await His Coming!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=re-fvZnTmHc

Jai Shri Ram! Bharat Mata Ki Jai! Vande Mataram! Phir Ek Baar Modi Sarkar!

Oh that's it! Scrap the election!

India election: 500 masked men with guns and machetes snatch voting machines. Officials ambushed as they carried polling equipment through jungle

The new attack occurred on Sunday as officials travelled to the hill-top Koloriang constituency to re-run the poll following allegations of severe malpractices during the first vote in April.
But despite the robbery, the new election still took place on Tuesday as planned after a new team of officials were sent with replacement machines, Inspector Garg said.
The Election Commission did not respond to a request by Reuters for comment.
