Salute to Anna Hazare for the bloodless revolution.

The government of India has at last given in to the demands of Anna Hazare. But already a hue and cry has been raised by a section of people who despite of being a very few in number tried their best to disrupt this peaceful movement which never resorted to any sort of violence and always followed the ‘Gandhian’ path of non-violence without any slightest deviation from it for a single moment. Their logic is that no law can be implemented bye-passing the parliament as it is the fundamental norm of parliamentary democracy and so can never be allowed in parliamentary democracy. It may be true. As an ordinary man having no knowledge of such parliamentary democracy, it is not possible for us to ascertain which is allowed and which is not allowed in parliamentary democracy. But would they kindly answer whether corruption which is so much rampant now everywhere in the society and against which the movement has been organized is allowed in parliamentary democracy? What our political leaders have done so far to check corruption? They can rather be accused of direct or indirect indulgence in spreading corruption to every walk of life. Now when such a massive movement has been organized which they never expected to be ever possible in a country like India that is renowned for its extreme faith in tolerance, they find it as a blow from the blue. It was never in the worst nightmare of the ruling political parties forming the government. They are accusing the opposition in the parliament for hijacking the movement and making Anna a puppet in their ugly hands. Whatever it may be; the government itself has created the situation to instigate such a massive movement and the opposition may take the advantage of it to make the ruling party in bay and pile continuous pressure on the government from all available corners. It is quite natural of them who belong to the opposition. But it is not our duty to save the government from the attack of the opposition on such a vital issue. The government ought to be more careful in its activities and it is our natural expectation from it. If it could have taken timely intervention in preventing such massive scams one after another, it would not have faced such an awkward position whereby it has been forced to listen to the voices of the people of India. We hope that all political parties in India including the opposition would take the lesson from it and would work accordingly because the opposition of today might be the rulers of tomorrow. Thus it is a warning to all political parties in India and the victory of Anna in making the government bowed down to him is a victory of the nation as a whole.

Corruption is so deep rooted in every sphere of life in more or less in every country that it is a Herculean job to uproot it from society. But Anna has showed the way and if we, the common people, now work hand in hand and pile pressure on the politicians,I believe corruption would definitely be restricted, if not uprooted completely from the society.

we must be well aware of the corruption is the evil that destroy a nation. A common people can think how dangerous it is. The Indian government hesitated firstly and now they have to accept it. I think they have accepted because Opposotion taking advantages from it and power of Anna Hazare and its followers. I feel proud of Anna Hazare and it way of non violence movement that we witnessed for corruption free India.

The Indian government was first in a fix how to tackle the situation and then made the blunder by arresting him which popularized and intensified the movement. The cause for the movement was justified as the government failed to check so many scams one after the another. So the government had nothing to defend itself and it was repeatedly talking about parliamentary democracy. But it forgot that people had reached the extreme level of tolerance and they are not interested to know what is permissible in parliamentary democracy. And the result was that the government had to pay respect to the voices of the people.

I don't think Lokpall bill can can eradicate the corruption completely. I think it is an aid for reducing corruption. The main corruption because of the bureaucratic rule in India. I think only reduce only 10% of corruption that we have now. I think 10% is better than none. What do you think.

Like you, I also think that Lokpall bill would never be able to eradicate corruption completely. But it is the beginning of a long and tough battle against corruption, and if there is constant vigil of common people against corruption, the government will definitely be compelled to take necessary actions against those who sponsor corruption.

If this can check corruption even to a very small extent, I would treat it as a great achievement because neither the politicians nor the people had the slightest faith in such a non-violent movement before the efforts came from Anna who proved that even now-a-days such movements can be organized by common people if they get an ideal leader.

It is proved again that if your mission is noble, you can achieve it at last, may be that the way to achievement is full of thorns. So I hope that young generations of the country who have to shoulder the responsibility of the country in the future, should also take a lesson from this historical movement of Anna that age is never a bar for a noble mission to be achieved.
