Anna and people of India

Kya mera neta chor hai? Kya aaj aam aadmi ka zor hai?

Can a fast-unto-death lead to a step towards abolishing corruption in government offices by the power of the same government? I believe it can! Do you?
Being a believer that both the ways of himsa and non-violence brought us freedom, I feel that India is struggling for another moment of freedom!

We have seen India growing. Be it the showing unity and patience in Jessica Lal's case or the current total Gandhi powered Anna ji. If it works I can still believe in the power of non violence for I know violence in we youth never worked.
In his letter he says, "I have started my indefinite fast at Jantar Mantar. I had invited you also to fast and pray for a corruption free India on 5th April. Though I did not receive any reply from you, I am hopeful that you must have done that."
In my humble opinion, an instigation is needed only to light fire.. but right now seeing the current india - it is burning!  Let this be a revolution from youth too... Let us teach the world - we care for the nation we call Maa! It is not about "enacting on law" for lok janpal bill, it is about establishment of a bill where the common man would be empowered to seek actions against anybody guilty of corruption. The fact is that no more can people of India believe blindly in a process in which some of the most corrupt people of the country would draft an anti-corruption law! And well to the "officials" who still want to say: "I have no information.", this bill is not impossible. The model has been adopted in several countries including Sweden (where the term originated), United Kingdom, Denmark, Australia, Portugal, Spain, Canada and New Zealand. So why can't we?
"I appeal to Anna Hazare to end the fast." - Pranab M.
"I appeal to Indian Government to end Corruption." - Anna Hazare
Jai Hind!
P.S. We the people have succeeded. But I don't trust that easily so waiting for actions.

We very badly need someone to oversee what goes on. Show of solidarity by people did put scare into those who matter. I sincerely hope that bill which finally comes has provisions which can be effectively used against corruption.

Take care

PS : I am also giving my humble views in my post today.

@Rainboy: I completely agree. The worst is that 50% of govt. officials involved are still not worth trusting. :(
And corruption is in root - no bill can remove it; it is we who need to day NO to it!

@Uncle Jack: I know it is hard to believe in bill for everything. I know the bill is strong but it's time even the citizens of India need to be strong.

I will surely visit you. :)
I do visit in btw but at times my phone doesn't allow me to comment :x

Nice post!

United youth and United Indians can do anything! I believe only Anna Hazare doing the fast alone wouldn’t really have had bothered the government by any means. It was the vast youth and that gigantic crowd that added to the govt's humiliation which resulted in the acceptance of the wishes of Anna! India is great and Indian are greatest! :)
