    I personally recommend everyone on this forum to watch these videos at least once & spread it virally.

    Aag ki tarah faila do!

    Frankly speaking I dont support Anna Hazare.

    He has been compromised more than several times in past. He's naïve & do not understand political system correctly. He's not what he is portrayed today. He's dramebaaz.

    But I support work of Justice Hegde & Kejriwal team. These are learned persons & know how Indian judiciary works including the very key loopholes of the same. I greatly respect Hegde family.

    The Anna team also need to spread the message beyond the literates and elites of the society. It needs to become a massive movement at all levels.

    Then we must, for the first time, bow to the power of naivety. In this world, you can hardly not be simple-minded and still be a pure heart.

    Who else in his team had the power to draw so many people, and the will to directly confront the government over such an abrasive issue?

    Yeah its hard but not impossible & its not rare for sure.

    An adventure doesn't justify its nature just because its a daring adventure nor it allows escape from the deeds of the adventurer.

    Not only because it is daring, but because it is for the right cause. Credit must be given where it is due, an undoubtedly he has awakened and mobilized the people of India towards the need and also the process of forming an anti-corruption independent unit. The efforts are truly at par with any other since independence.

    You don't need my approval to bow before him.

    I support cause not the person.

    I saw this speech just yesterday. It just goes on to show us how our politicians are trying to protect themselves by making a mockery of Lokpal bill. I think Anna Hazare and team has woken up the masses of India to the kind of corruption that goes on in the executive and how these corrupt politicians and babus are going scot free. As kejriwal said "poltics is a risk free, zero capital, high profit business". So true, unless the true Jan Lokpal bill comes into effect. Today the Indian politicians are having the cake and eating it too.Both NDA and UPA are equally culprit in blocking such highly required independent anti-corruption agencies from coming into existence as it will make their existence difficult.

    Bowing before him would not make anyone inferior. We do touch feet of elderly in India right?

    You were saying some posts back that you like the works of Kejriwal, etc. Contradictions?

    So you wouldn't even mind touching feet of Digvijay as he is elder?

    I differentiate.

    No, Confusion.

    --

    Hazare & Justice Hegde/Keriwal are way too different. I support (not necessarily like) their work & it has nothing to do with hazare.

    Digvijay is not for us he is against us. That differentiates.


    It was always about supporting the cause, but just the assertion that when some one is standing up for you, there is certain obligation to show respect for him and give him the credit for what he has truly done.

    @nrj, Anna Hazare is very well known in Maharashtra for fighting against corruption.
    He may appear to be a naive simpleton, but sometimes there is genius in naivety mixed with iron will and good intentions.

    Yes Singh. Anna Hazare is well known in Maharashtra, Marathwada for more than decade. And I've experienced & then formed my opinion about him that too before 2010 transparency-revolution began & Facebook wasn't there.

    I always had it.

    You seem pretty upset by him. But I would still say you should. ;)
