As India gets ready to vote, we followed the campaign trail in some of the important metro constituencies to find out what really will determine the urban vote. Are local issues taking precedence over national ones or is this election less about political parties and more about personalities? Are candidates merely stand-ins for their parties or do they have the voice and vision to connect with their constituencies? Are the candidates accessible, and how are they communicating with voters, first-timers and loyalists?

From New Delhi, Chandni Chowk, Chandigarh, Bangalore Central, Mumbai South and Mumbai Northeast to Jadavpur and Central Chennai, here are glimpses of voters, candidates and issues that will play a key role in the formation of the 16th Lok Sabha. Befitting a democracy, the 2014 fight doesn’t seem to be about one wave, one party or one issue, but it’s undeniably the most exciting election in many years.
