Victory for India

Well… In addition to India’s 2011 Cricket World Cup victory, I was inspired by victory of 2011 Anti-Corruption Movement lead by Anna Hazare

Anna Hazare

Corruption is the core issue that we face today. I have to admit, I was very cynical in my view towards “fighting corruption”. Looking at the series of scams we had, I never thought anyone can put an end to this. But things changed when I saw this movement and the result. I really appreciate all those who has joined the movement for their courage and determination.

It was very interesting to see how some politicians reacted to this. Anyway that was on expected lines, no surprises. I don’t have to name them. You know it… I was also inspired by the way the younger generation responded to the whole movement. Yes, we too can bring the change. There is still some ray of hope!

Hmm… Its also interesting to note that, there are still some “intellectuals” who “tries very hard” to use their analytical and statistical skills to view each and everything that happens on earth. Cool! Well? If you haven’t watched CNN-IBN The Last Word: Anna Hazare fast and the Media, please do so.

There were three “intellectuals”, other than Anupam Kher. I was amazed by their intelligence (or lack of it)… May be they never had to visit the local government offices and hence clueless about the facts of life… Or may be they are trying very hard to look at things from different perspective… trying to stay away from “norms” and hence everything looks “abnormal”…

What?! Did you mean – Abnormal Psychology? πŸ™‚

What ever… I don’t care, as long as it helps to end corruption… Well done India! πŸ™‚
This is just a beginning…

Its almost a year since my last post… A bit busy with other tasks…
Btw, I came across this interesting post “A Year After: The People”… πŸ™‚

    People of every age should realize, the system can be changed, only when all of us join our hand and fight for it. Its not just Anna Hazare will do a mazic and we will watch.

    I was in Freedom Park, Bangalore till late night. It was a very good inspiring moment seeing many people are the with their family and kids as well.

    Something disappoints me is still there is a big group of people who holds very negative attitude. The day when the draft of Jan Lokpal bill is passed by our PM, I was wearing a badge on my shirt “India Again Corruption”. Seeing this, one shopkeeper asked what is this sir? before I start explaining, “aaaaa….kuch nahi hoga sir, karo sir karo”. Another place I got a comment like, “they do not have any work so sitting their doing timepass and becoming famous”

    India, let us understand this. This our last chance to bring a change.
