Elections and Farce

It is both amusing and sad to read about dummy namesake candidates standing for elections and getting a kite as a symbol which may mislead voters.

Since India does not have a two party system, we should switch from the first past the post system.

I am impressed by the Grand Coalitions in Germany. The proportional system with a cutoff in Germany appears to compel parties to work together if the need arises. I cannot imagine such a scenario in India, US or UK. 

This is in remarkable contrast to the US gridlocks seen in Obama's terms.
