May I now ask the idiots those who undermined Anna Hajare and his movement against corruption and why malicious campaigns were organised against his fast unto death? What should now those arrogant people say after watching excellent debate on TV in Parliament on the issue and unanimous resolutions in both lower and upper houses? Why not now they should condemn all the Parliamentarians across the party affiliations for supporting Anna Hajara? I know those stupids have no convincing answer. Because the today's world didn't see what they heard of Mahatma Gandhi long back on Satyagraha and non-violent movements include fast unto death. The present generation is only habituated to hear the sound of guns and bombs as a form of protest. To them, the Gandhi was nothing but a Tamasha and so the Gandhian ways of expressing dissents. It was unbelievable to them that a peaceful movement through self sacrifices could garner support of the supreme power house of a country. A new history for 21st century civilization has been written by the great Anna and his millions of followers. The human values and virtues lost in the ages of technological revolution, imperialism, monopoly or corporate capitalism are likely to reborn in this new age of civilisation. And Anna is an angel for a social change. We are all grateful that we born in the age of Anna Hajare.

In response to an Independence greeting by one of my friends, I replied, " Anna Ramdev Sacchi Hai, Aur Ye Azadi Jhuta Hai". He bulldozed my feeling and abused me, "Anna Ramdev Pakhandi Aur Dhongi Hai, Bakwas Hai". The gentleman looks like a lizard that changes its colour from time to time. Once he was an ardent supporter of the then ruling party BJP and its leader Atal Behari ji and was a staunch opponent of Sonia Congress and its allies those were 'Faltus', according to him. Now the same man has become a faithful to Sonia Congress as if prices of essential commodities are stabilized, corruption is vanished, elected representatives have become Sadhus and Fakirs, the nation is reborn under 'satyayug' under the leadership of Monmohan ji. Keya baat, Keya baat. But my countrymen refused to go by those 'yes men' of the ruling class. In total discomfort to the sort of faithfuls, the people of India across the nation have risen to the occasion and bulldozed the evil desires of the power greedy persons and forced them to bow down to Anna and his followers by coming to terms convenient to the Mahatma and not a 'Pakhandi'. Now some people started realizing their misconception and looking at Anna afresh in the national interests. But I dont resist myself to conclude with, "Gaddha usse kahlata hai, jo saf pani gandha karke pite hai".
