    Election commission is not working properly, the voters has the identification card but their name dose not appear in the voters list. Now tell me identity card holder is eligible for voting or not? if no, why. and if yes how?

    Hi Dinesh,
    Such a nice detail, I am a s/w engineer work for a PUNE base startup company. I mostly work on LINUX and Open source technology, actually i started working on it since i joined here for this company and i found its really another world in it πŸ™‚
    Coming to my personal detail i belong to Hanumangarh a district of Rajasthan. i was not at all aware of LINUX, so my main concern here is, i want to make more and more people aware of LINUX @ small towns like i belong to ;).

    Do you have any suggestion, community who can help me out for this, i must say i am not at all perfect in LINUX but i know if i get some lead i can do at my best
