I went trolling on the internets for some sights of the Indian campaigns. Not much. The official BJP site has like 8 little photos and Congress none. Though, the Congress does have separate Hindi and Urdu sites. Nothing on Getty Images, but I did find some cool shots on flickr. Enjoy.
LOL, wonder how long that poster of Mamata will last before some CPI-M goons get their hands on it!
Great photos, thanks!
Shashi Tharoor with Yasser Arafat, what a find! This is a mustread to understand Indian political posters http://krishashok.wordpress.com/2007/12/10/guide-to-designing-indian-political-posters/
Always on time with the imagery . . . that Shashi/Yasser pic is fab - I wish I knew what it said . . .
Thank you for the link, Red . . . hilarious and instructive . . . The Man as The Great Communicator by virtue of a cellphone got me . . .

Conrad: wow, it seems the CPI-M goons got to flickr too!!!
@ karuna,shahi tharoor is traditionally seen as someone who was with the israeli side against palestine and needless to say in kerala pro palestine sentiments are very strong.The poster tries to assuage those fears.
