A very nice talk on why tests matter and how scoring high on tests is important for students.

The Assembly Elections Results for Maharashtra just came out yesterday. A big question: Could NCP and Congress contesting as allies together would have come back to power? Perhaps not. They would have won only 37 more seats (assuming the same voters voted for the two). Not at all enough to handily defeat the BJP. This and other fun examinations of the results will be coming soon. Keep watching this space.

Most people can probably remember a web page that looks pretty bad when it is printed. Thankfully, such web pages are becoming fewer thanks to smarter web browsers and correctly written CSS (cascading style sheets). I recently used CSS at  +azeemtechnologies to create web pages which were expressly designed only for printing. Here is what happened.

Last week, we helped out a school to better understand how their students performed in the recently concluded public examinations. Simple statistics combined with visuals makes it so easy to grasp the essentials.

After seeing the word cloud of party names, someone in our office was wondering about the people who contested the 2014 Indian Lok Sabha elections. Well, we decided to create a word cloud to check out the most popular surnames (at least for those candidates who got at least one vote). Here is what we found.

Just for fun, this last weekend we wanted to do something different. So we went ahead and did a word cloud on the names of all the political parties which obtained at least one vote in the 2014 lok sabha elections. Not surprisingly, most political parties have the word 'party' in their name. From our list of more than 450 parties, 272 of them had this word. As for the rest, this is what we found.

In the recently concluded 2014 General Elections of India, a new voter preference called "None of the Above" (NOTA) was introduced. This was a  formal way of what was earlier called a "protest vote" wherein you went to the voting booth, registered yourself but did not vote for any candidate. So we thought it would be interesting to see how many Indian people used NOTA to exhibit their dissatisfaction with all the candidates standing for election in their constituency. This is what we saw. Over 60 lakhs (6 million) used NOTA which is > 1% of all the votes cast in this election.

After a long time, the people of India gave a simple majority to a political party in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections. Although there were a number of high profile losers, we were curious as to whether BJP swept to power convincingly or on narrow margins. So we did some analysis and this is what we saw.
