Mysuru’s famous indelible ink gets a fancy new avatar
Voters across the country are familiar with the traditional ink and brush used during elections to mark their fingers once they exercise their franchise. The process of application of the indelible ink, though, often leaves an unsightly mark on a person’s finger, which takes months to fade away. Going forward, though, the sign that you have voted is set to get a neat makeover, what with the makers of the ink, the Mysuru Paints and Varnish Limited (MPVL) introducing it as marker pens. The first batch of pens, along with several bottles of the ink, is being shipped to Cambodia for the country’s parliamentary elections next month.
