The story of the world's largest-ever election...

....told with maps, charts, tables and numbers.

You can find out the male-female divide; how many MPs have criminal cases against them; how many are lawyers or teachers or industrialists, etc; how many belong to India's lower castes; who are the youngest/ oldest sitting MPs.. and on and on and on...

Good stuff. highly reccomended.

P.s. if you're ever lost in India, Mapmyindia.com also happens to possess the best maps of Indian streets that I know of (better than Google!) - complete with directions and travel time.
