It's one of the most exciting general elections that India has ever seen, thanks to a new party born out of the India Against Corruption movement that swept the country in 2011. The Aam Aadmi Party - the party of "the common people"- is challenging everything about how politics is done in India. Although the party is not predicted to win many seats this time, it is constantly in the media and has radically changed the political debates of this Election with its message of transparency, accountability and addressing the needs of India's poorest.

With an old fashioned twig broom as its logo and a white Gandhi cap with the words "I am a common man" as its trademark, the new party seems to have captured the mood of the country. But how lasting will its impact be beyond the General Election? Mukti Jain Campion reports from New Delhi.
