India's first general election was held, in 1951-52. The first general election in India was no less than a festival. Millions of people, who until sometime ago were being ruled over by oppressive policies, had now become the rightful electors of their government. Back then, the minimum age to cast the vote was 21, and around 176 million Indians met the criteria. But the big issue was that around 85% of them could not read or write, and hence, were unable read the political parties' name.
