What democracy means

“Earlier, people just did as they were asked. Or, they sniffed at the wind and followed its bent. Now, people note which way the wind is blowing, but sometimes, they bend the wind a little bit, bend it to their own will.”

So a woman told me. I was tempted to believe that it is too cold, simply too inconvenient to go out and vote in a winter election. Replugging this, simply because I am thinking of the landscape, the sound of the Himalayan winds, the betrayals of leaders. And because it is almost election time again.
