by Parminder Singh Sodhi

As Punjab gears up for the electoral extravaganza today, the city of Amritsar is adding its own colorful twist to the voting experience. In a bid to encourage voter participation and turn the solemn act of casting ballots into a vibrant celebration, a unique initiative has been launched: the Super Model Polling Booth.

Nestled within the premises of Bhavans Public School, this polling booth isn’t your ordinary affair. It’s been adorned with the theme “Chunav ka Parv” (Festival of Elections), promising voters an unforgettable journey as they fulfill their civic duty. Imagine stepping into a realm where democracy meets festivity, where the air is filled with drumbeats and the aroma of street food delicacies.

From the moment voters step inside, they’re greeted not only with the opportunity to shape the future but also with a warm welcome that includes a variety of refreshing drinks like lassi, tea, and even golgappas. The scents of tikki and chaat waft through the air, tempting the taste buds of those who brave the sweltering heat to make their voices heard.

But it’s not just about satisfying culinary cravings. This polling booth caters to the diverse needs of the electorate. For parents juggling the responsibility of voting and childcare, there’s an indoor daycare facility and an activity area where children can engage in playful endeavors while their guardians exercise their franchise.

Moreover, the Super Model Polling Booth isn’t short on entertainment and engagement. It’s a visual delight, showcasing glimpses of Amritsar’s rich heritage at every turn. For those inclined towards literature, there’s a book stall offering a diverse selection of reads. Women voters can indulge in a spot of pampering with nail art services, adding a touch of glamour to the voting process. Additionally, a craft exhibition featuring creations by ITI students under SVEEP (Systematic Voters’ Education and Electoral Participation) activities adds another layer of cultural enrichment.

In essence, the Super Model Polling Booth isn’t just a place to mark ballots; it’s a celebration of democracy, a testament to the spirit of unity and engagement that defines the electoral process. As voters converge to fulfill their civic duty, they’re treated to an experience that transcends the ordinary, leaving them with memories of a day when democracy came alive in the heart of Amritsar.
