    Election Commission is offering an unfair and absurd Challenge.The problem is the ETERNAL CUSTODY of these EVMs,under it.EC members are mere mortals, and EVMs are MERE machines.Both are fallible.The solutions is:- 1.Hand over the custody of the EVMs permanently to a fair group,say,The Party in Power,the Opposition,SC and a group of Ethical Hackers representing the people of India.Provide the Manuals of the EVMs also to these groups. 2.Use ballot papers or VVPATsBetter Ballot Papers. 3.the VVPATs should contain the names oof the candidates,the party and the symbol of the Party voted for 4.Sufficient time should be given to the Voter to confirm the intended VOTING and should not be hustled.
