Given that the general election are coming up in a few months, The Times of India has launched a nationwide campaign to generate conversations and make a real difference. The ‘Lost Votes’ movement calls for policy and electoral reforms to bring in the vote of Indian migrant into country’s general elections.


Commenting on the campaign, Sanjeev Bhargava, Director, TOI Brand said: “We are the largest democracy in the world. But are we the most robust? To strengthen our democracy, it is important that the right to vote and the facility to vote both be made available to the entire voting population.”


Added Senthil Kumar, Chief Creative Officer, J Walter Thompson: “The idea of the film is to evoke the voice of the lost vote. A voice that amplifies the angst and echoes the emotion of over 20 crore Indians losing their vote. To play the voice of the lost votes on loud speakers and yet feel the voice being drowned by the distance, lost in the middle class multitudes out there. Losing your right to vote is like that fading homing signal. It’s like missing the last train home and losing the hope of making a difference in your hometown from your distant work station. Mera Haq Kahin Pe Kho Gaya,”
