After get registered : 

Minimum to do is take any Govt id card can be aadhar also to polling booth and vote. Voter id card is optional.

Aadhar is not accepted when applying for voter id but its accepted identifier in voting booth as long as name and photo matches what was giving in voting application and what appears in their list.

Voter id card : they have less stock. Please call 1950 from mobile or landline and complain if not got. Can go to their office. Folks who had camp do not plan to go. There is a small chance that they will drop ids at our flats. But we do not know more about that.

Do encourage you to check names and vote;  Karnataka date NOT annoucned i, but plan to be here in Arpil/ May!

Voters should check their names on voter list, note down part and serial number. As it might change every time new list is released. Pl note it down a week before voting as it will help u find the name in polling booth easily.

Fyi Usually if Id card is ready the ward office will call and intimate the cards r ready but hologram is yet to come. Hence delay.

poetry by my mother, Prem Lata Kapila written in the 1990s

Love on Wings
His clasp so warm the tender touch
the probe, the vertigo circulates to a pinnacle
we merge we merge - we fall deep.
there are no angles no hard bones.
feelings chaotic settle to a rhythm
the rhythm widens to encompass the whole world.
thy whole being circulates to cometo a pinnacle.
We sway All emotions are drawn to widen out again and again
I rise above this mundane world.
I circulate , I sway , Iam away
away far far away into infinity.
-Lata Kapila

The one love
Oh the feel - the joy - the anticipation
On seeing the fresh white - crisp
so transparent O so nice
the unparalleled one to own
to save it you need it

the everyday love of our lives
the one thing that adds to our savings
the uncrushable - the unbreakable
the see through - the preserver of my love
the savior of one and all
the bane of environmentalists
the unfathomable the die hard
the preserver of the modern world
be it the kitchen or the office - the road too
You and I all of us need it,
the plastic packet
Use cloth bags - use coir bags shun plastic
