In a book recommending ethnographic inquiry to answer the question posed in the title Why India Votes? Mukulika Banerjee walks the reader through the paces of working out what it may be that is so different on voting day Based on fieldwork in specific polling booths across the country during the 2009 Lok Sabha elections hers is an attempt to break away from the usual election studies that “tend to reduce the question of why Indians vote to a simple co-efficient of whom they vote for” In placing the voter at the polling booth centre stage she asks whether there is a certain “Indianness” in Indian elections In doing so and going beyond her argument on methodology she highlights the special quality of voting day a quality that is obtained on no other day So besides working out which candidate or political party you should vote for do also be attentive to the magic of polling day You may for instance ask yourself and perhaps those standing in line with you the questions Banerjee’s fieldworkers focused on “What did an election campaign look like from the vantage point of the voter How plastic was the language of politics what new words were coined what local metaphors were used to describe the processes of electoral democracy etc What happened on Polling Day What was the culture of the polling booth and the attitudes of polling officials towards voters like What were the reasons that people gave for voting when they were asked ‘Why do you vote’” To that last question you may be inclined to answer as were many of those questioned by Banerjee “Why would you not vote” There is nothing offhand about that reply because as India’s large contingent of first-time voters is likely to find out in the coming weeks after voting there is “a sense of exhilaration at having accomplished something meaningful” Meaningful how Banerjee examines the recognition the voter reports as an equal

(of voting) I wanted to press the button on the EVM and I wanted to see how it functions I am very happy because from now on I will be considered a citizen of this country” A young man says: “I vote to establish my identity and let the government know that there is someone with so-and-so name living in so-and-so village” Someone else says: “I realised the value of casting my vote through the experience of standing in the same line and the same room alongside people of other castes” Emerging from the booth a voter says: “After this mark (the indelible ink) we are all similar and have become equal after voting Each vote has the same value no matter whose it is That makes us all equal today” The secrecy is particularly empowering Asked if she had got her voting choice right a woman retorts: “Why does anybody need to know that I know what I did” Indeed For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: PTI | Jaipur | Published: August 20 2016 3:59 pm
