Mumbai's first-time voters


Voting has ended in India in the third round of the country's month-long, general election.

Millions of people braved intense heat to vote in nine states and two federal territories. Initial reports indicate moderate to brisk voting in many parts of the country.

Karishma Vaswani spoke to two young voters from south Mumbai, an area badly affected by the terror attacks in November 2008, about why voting is so important to them.
