TAKE A LOOK-India's exit polls show BJP alliance headed for majority

Hindu nationalist Narendra Modi is set to become India's next prime minister,
four major exit polls showed, with his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its
allies forecast to sweep to a parliamentary majority in the world's biggest ever
election, unseating the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty from New Delhi.
    India's staggered voting, to reach the country's 815 million voters and move
security forces around its varied terrain, ended on Monday and the results are
due on Friday.
