In a remarkable display of dedication to democracy, family members of an eighty-year-old woman in Bihar chose to cast their votes before performing her last rites on Saturday.

The incident took place in Devkuli village, Jehanabad Lok Sabha constituency, during the final phase of polling. ''My mother died today. She will not come back. Cremation can wait, but not the election. The election will come after five years. Therefore, we (family members) discussed the matter and decided to perform the last rites of our mother after casting our votes,'' said Mithilesh Yadav, son of the deceased.

After voting at polling booth number 115, the family proceeded with the cremation. Voting is underway in eight Lok Sabha constituencies in Bihar, including Patna Sahib, Patliputra, Arrah, Karakat, Jehanabad, Buxar, Nalanda, and Jehanabad.
