Since last October , issue of Corruption in “Come on , Wealth ! “Games has taken whole country in to an strange “aggressive” and “depressive” mood alternatively.There has never been a bigger uproar in Indian Public and social-circles against corruption.Anna led from the front and his four-day fast was followed by a triumph almost unimaginable.
For those who don’t know Anna , I should introduce him to you all ..
“Kisan Baburao Hazare , Marathi: किसन बाबुराव हजारे) (born 15 June 1937), popularly known as Anna Hazare is an Indian social activist and anarcho-pacifist who is especially recognised for his contribution to the development and structuring of Ralegan Siddhi, a village in Parner taluka of Ahmednagar district, Maharashtra, India and his efforts for establishing it as a model village, for which he was awarded the Padma Bhushan—the third-highest civilian award—by the government of India in 1992.
The initial euphoria , which was generated after Anna and some of his colleagues in this campaign were included in the “Lokpal Drafting Committee” , was evaporated when some of critical suggestion or should I say demands of Anna Camp like “Inclusion of PM , Judiciary and Government Servant under the authority of Lokpal were ignored and refused to be incorporated in the final draft which was presented in the parliament.Sad , that the copies of bill were burnt same day as symbolic protest by Anna and his supporter through out India.
Now all the exercise of drafting bill and presenting it in the parliament is looking just like a formality which government had to perform after Anna went on protest and extracted pan-Indian support of Indian public.
Anna is going on another fast starting from 16th august and has called all his countrymen to join him in the ‘satyagraha’.
Another issue which has become ‘very-critical’ and of utmost priority in the capital of India is “Security of Women”.Inspired by the slutwalk all over the world , a young , simple and energetic girl , who is the student of journalism in DU had organised a similar March with another name “Besharmi Morcha” but sadly it failed on all front , be it raising the awareness about the security and rights of women or bringing out the people of capital of India in its support.The whole idea of “Slutwalk” has rather been denigrated in to a “SlutTalk” and people were seen discussing if calling Indian-Women “SLUT” is right or wrong. Really ! You can never be ‘straight’ in your approach in India and if you try , you run the risk of both being misunderstood and misinterpreted.
Hope , Anna brings some more “Umang” in the lives of people of India which desperately needs a leader to direct them in right direction so that this “Aag” in the people of India is utilized well in a constructive manner.
