Google's #PledgeToVote Campaign Featuring Shyam Negi - Do Your Bit!

97yrs old Shyam Saran Negi is India's first independent voter.
He has been believing in democracy since 1951.

It is interesting to note that the upcoming Indian Elections will be the largest democratic election in history, with over 800 million voters.

This is the true story of a man who never missed an opportunity to vote.
Mr. Shyam Saran Negi, a school teacher from a remote village in the foothills of the Himalayas, has voted in every General Election since 1951. Mr. Negi pledges to vote in the 2014 elections, and so should you.
