VOTE 2009 : RIA for Andhra Elections

Snapshots of a cool RIA application that provide Andhra Elections at a glance. List of constituencies, various details about each constituency that include current voter strength, list of contestants and results in previous elections in a particular constituency.

My biggest objective in designing this application is to impress with a clutter free, stylish grayish design. And, Best of all, NO advertisements, what so ever.


The application is available at

Dashboard of Current Predictions

The app displays current trend and prediction of Andhra Assembly elections on the top the application. It has two different estimates.


The first one is based on research of Media reports, selective user interviews and trend estimates. The second one is based on survey of users visiting Yes To Politics website.

As of now, TDP alliance is leading in both while PRP is running closely behind.

Main Screen

Once loaded, the app displays list of Districts on the left side bar and also provide list of Assembly Constituencies in that district ( as per new Delimitation rules for 2009 Elections). It also loads the first Constituency in that list on the right hand content section.

The first cool thing you will notice is it positions the Constituency on the map and smoothly panes to that location. It immediately displays the Polling date for the constituency and a link to go to headquarters.


2009 Election Details

On the details section, the app displays Voter statistics of this constituency, its corresponding Parliamentary constituency and the district. It also displays the status of this constituency as per new Delimitation rules. ACTIVE means, no changes. And ADDED for newly added constituencies.

This section also provide list of contestants from various parties in this constituency.


Previous Election Results

The next section display the results from previous elections beginning from 1978. Lists out name of the Winner, the party represented and a % of votes obtained to win. Users can go Constituency headquarters to get more details about each election in the constituency.


The application also displays list of Parliamentary Constituencies in similar fashion, though previous Election information is not displayed for Parliamentary constituencies.

You Are What You Think People Think About You

There are about 6.7 Billion people in this world that we know of.  Whether you believe in ‘Creation’ or ‘Evolution’, this human race started with a tiny number. It is quite amazing to see how fast it multiplies. What is more amazing is that every single individual in that 6 billion crowd is born ‘unique’.  Quite literally, you are born to be one in a billion, whether you believe it or not. “ This was the Introduction to my latest and last speech in Toast Masters club, ‘One in a Billion’ as part of International Speech contest. 
As much as I believe that each one of us can be that 'one in a billion' personality, I admit the reality as I perceive it and some times feel alone in that belief.
A famous quote says 'You are what you think'. It is also true that 'you are what you think people think about you'. If you think people think you are smart, then you act smart and become smart. If you think people think you are dumb, you will become dumb even if you are not, a…

Cooking looks like an unforgiving art

When you are writing software, you always get a second chance. In fact, lots of chances to get it correct. You have compiler warnings, failed test cases and some times crashes alert you that something is not right and will give you a chance to correct. And you get literally unlimited chances to apply those corrections. 
Well, cooking looks to be totally unforgiving in this respect and on any given day, you may get just one chance to get it right. If you fail, you fail. Try again right away if you have patience of starting it all over. Or start over some time later or next day. But not much of a second chance to correct a mistake. 
More ruthless, when it comes to salt. If you put just a little more, even a tiny little more, it never hesitate to show what it got. Totally ruthless. End result will be a failed dish that no one will be able (and/or happy) to eat. And most dishes, you may not be able to add something little more to offset it.

Did NDTV Just Twisted Words?

I have recently spotted quite a few places where NDTV title doesn’t exactly say the same as the details in the article says. Lost in translation? or just plain twisting for journalistic sensationalism?Title says “'AAP doesn't treat women as humans,' says founder member Madhu Bhaduri as she quits”, but the quote in details says, slightly differently: “In this party, women are not considered humans” (see the text highlighted).Source : NDTV.comYou may say, they effectually mean the same thing. Is it? Even if they mean the same,  Why not use the same exact phrase in both places?
