    Default Politics article>>Kinldy check for grammar

    All of us blame politician for every bad thing in the system. We have a general perception about politicians, they are corrupt and worthless. But we the citizen of this country need to do introspection ourselves. Nowadays nobody caste the vote, but vote a caste. If a candidate belongs to a particular community, sect or ethnic group, then the people of respective community, sect or ethnic group vote only that candidate. They won’t see if that candidate is capable of been a true and honest leader of masses, he might has different criminal cases against him but still they will vote for him. We need to up our psychological ante, and think in boarder sense. There should be no place of regional chauvinism in the society

    All of us blame politician [politicians] for every bad thing in the system. We have a general perception about politicians, [either replace the comma with a colon, or add the word "that" after the comma] they are corrupt and worthless. But we [need a comma here]the citizen[s] of this country [and a comma here] need to do introspection ourselves [try: "need to look inside ourselves."]. Nowadays nobody caste the vote, but vote a caste. [nice turn of phrase, but it doesn't quite work. Try: "We don't cast a vote, but vote a caste."] If a candidate belongs to a particular community, sect or ethnic group, then the people of [that] respective community, sect or ethnic group vote only [for] that candidate. They won’t see [rather: "care"] if that candidate is capable of been [should be "being"] a true and honest leader of masses [either "of the masses" or delete entirely; "honest leader" is sufficient], [Need a period or semicolon here, not a comma] he might has [have] different [delete "different" or replace with "several"] criminal cases against him but still they will vote for him. We need to up our psychological ante, and think in [a]boarder [sp: broader] sense. There should be no place of [replace with "for"] regional chauvinism in the society [period/full stop]

    This is certainly the best way to learn, to try, and then study the corrections. And don't expect to remember all the corrections the first time, either. Try again, make some of the same errors, encourage more corrections, and eventually, you will be making fewer and fewer errors.

    May a point out a couple here?
