An unidentified Indian married woman admires a mangalsutra made of brass and featuring the symbol of the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) for sale on the stall of electoral publicity dealer Prakashbhai Naik in Ahmedabad on April 15, 2009.   Naik sells Mangalsutra at Indian Rupees 25 (US 50 cents) each.  A mangalsutra is an Indian symbol of Hindu marriage, consisting of a gold ornament strung from a yellow thread, a string of black beads or a gold chain. It is comparable to a Western wedding ring, and is worn by a married woman until her husband's death. As many as 5,000 mangalsutras, made of brass, will be distributed in each of the 26 electoral constituencies in the westenr Indian state of Gujarat. India will hold its fifteenth parliamentary general elections in five phases on April 16, April 23, April 30, May 7,and May 13 and the new parliament will be constituted before June 2.
