I sat in front of the television, ready for the counting. The opposition was expected to win comfortably, and the ruling party expected to be drubbed completely. However it didn't start like that, the parties were going neck to neck, with the opposition slightly in lead. However after half an hour, it was clear that the opposition was winning comfortably. They ended up with a two third majority. The question in the TV Channels shifted to who will be the CM. The 83 year old politician, who started his career in 1940s was everybody's choice.
Since I was in Kerala on May 11th, I was following the results of Kerala State elections. VS Achutananthan, the 83 year old CPI(M) leader did become the CM.
