Once Upon An Index Finger

.. I flash my little mark of a voter with pride. Not just for voting. My mark is a medal that says I succeeded, after umpteen visits to Town Hall, hurdling past sullen officials. Some not sullen - but they only spoke Kannada. And when they spoke in English it was to say:

wait. Do one thing. Come back in the afternoon. Come back tomorrow.
