Roshan overheard his teachers discussing how voting numbers in many areas are rigged. He thought
of a button in the EVMs which can transmit the total number of votes directly to the cloud server as the voting proceeds and also to district Election Commission office if required at regular interval. A software can be developed for this which will prevent any untoward happening during/after voting. The rate of voting will be recorded per minute any undue activity will alert the monitoring agencies.
Roshan has grown very fond of computers and has started learning how to use one. Besides, he draws inspiration from Dr A P J Abdul Kalam and Kalpana Chawla. He wants to become an engineer.
