Dearest Anna Da,
You are like a Grand Father figure to me. Thank you for reviving the dying hope to see India corruption free. When all of us as the children of India gave up all hopes and accepted that washing corruption out of our motherland is next to impossible, you gave us a new ray of hope. Now I believe that India will be corruption free…Someday!
You proved it that just sitting at the coffee table and discussing and cursing India and its politicians for the amount of corruption will not help. Someone has to wake up and take the first step. And I feel so proud that you have done it instead of just talking about it.
Corruption has somewhere become a part of everyone’s life, at least in India. It has affected people in many ways. From the pettiest activity to the most important ones, corruption ka tadka is everywhere.
Your strike invokes the memory of Bapu. He had said, “Corruption will be out one day, however much one may try to conceal it: and the public can as its right and duty, in every case of justifiable suspicion, call its servants to strict account, dismiss them, sue them in the Court of Law, or appoint a arbitrator or inspector to scrutinize their conduct, as it likes.”
I wasn’t fortunate enough to see Bapu kick the Britisher’s out of our motherland. But I feel privileged to be able to support you for something bigger than what Bapu did. He threw the trash that came from outside but you are striving hard to eliminate a disease that was born in our very home.
It’s always that ONE person who makes the difference. Mahatma Gandhi, Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela and now it’s you. We are with you Da. Each and every Indian is with you.
But Anna Da, don’t you think one Lokapal bill is not enough. We need at least 10 such Lokapal to eradicate corruption in the next 6-7 years. Then after that, the one that is the best will be kept.
There is a lot of anger and disappointment among the natives. This could be seen clearly when politicians flooded the protest site, but the ire against politicians was so high that Hazare’s associates barred them all from sitting beside him on the dais. Three opposition leaders who went to the site on Thursday were shooed away by angry protestors. Others were seen standing quietly among the crowds at the venue.
The current climate of graft is entirely due to these political leaders. We are not going to let any politician take control over our agenda.
We are all with you Anna Da and we WILL get this disease of ‘corruption’ cured soon.
C'mon guys. Enough of this. Time to wake up.
India will be corruption free. We will make it happen!
