Is there a sea change coming in Indian politics? Millions of citizens lined up at polls in five states, but the most intriguing of all the races is taking place in Delhi. The Aam Aadmi (Common Man) Party, birthed from the anti-corruption movement is vigorously contesting seats historically held by Congress and BJP. Is this a harbinger of a new day or simply a flash in the pan?

Those placing hope in Aam Aadmi to usher in a new age include not only Indians in Delhi but a growing number in countries around the world. Vanya Mehta of the NY Times writes of the significant role of non resident Indians in the Delhi campaign.
