However, as the smallest cog in this gigantic wheel, the individual voter, I wish one could find a way to look up our names in the voters list. For some time I have been trying to see the voters' list which is supposedly on-line, here, which is impossible to read because of a problem with Tamil fonts. Only Internet Explorer with the appropriate Tamil fonts downloaded can read it and my machine on which I can indeed run IE (Mac --> Parallels --> Windows Vista --> IE) still cannot though I continue to try. Surely the largest exercise of its kind in the world involving a few hundred million people should not be made hostage to branded software? Unlike many of my colleagues, I have no ideological issues with Windows (to each her own is my view, I just don't want to use it) but surely this is a bit thick?
In the meantime, I continue to hope that when I go to the polling booth on May 13th, my name will not have been deleted.
