There are many in urban areas who don't have the inclination to vote. Then there are people like Nazma Khatun, 85.

Nazma Khatun has reportedly endured 10 "attacks." Yet her spirit remains high when it comes to casting her vote.

She was carried to a polling booth in Howrah, West Bengal, to vote by her son Md Wakil, in the absence of a wheel-chair.

Her determination to vote is a powerful testament to democracy and resilience.

However, the plight of Nazma Khatun and her son shows that polling booths in many places in the country still remain inaccessible to eldery voters and differently-abled people.
