The Delhi electoral office organised a musical performance by Indie pop band Euphoria to raise awareness among the voters. The concert, titled ‘Taal of Democracy’ took place at the Central Park in Connaught Place. Jyotsana Fulori, who was among the audience, said, “I was attracted by the theme of the event. Such initiatives not only entertain but also play a role in spreading awareness among people and make them politically aware.”

Officials talked to people during the breaks between the performances over the importance of voting. Ankit Nirwal, another spectator said, “I was not aware of several voting rights. This is an amazing experience.”

In collaboration with election commission, a group from Flavours of Art Foundation drew awareness messages on the canvas. “We supported election commission in their initiative last assembly elections as well. People come here as spectators but when they go back they make others aware too,” said Nivita Kakaria of Flavours of Art Foundation.
