As part of the BBC News Online series about people's daily lives, Congress party candidate Mahipal Maderna talks about a day in the state election campaign in Rajasthan in western India.
This is my first election. My father is the Speaker in the outgoing assembly and has represented Bhopalgarh since the first elections in 1952. Now it is my chance to take his vision forward.
I start campaigning at around 0930. It's a long day so I take lots of water, throat lozenges and fruit to see me through.
