Anna Hazare & Co. – An hawk eye view

I support Anna. Don’t take this in a wrong way. Because a man at his 70s doing what I can’t do at this age in this democratic country. I really appreciate it. But this post is not about supporting his movement. This is just an analysis over it.

Anna’s wave made the whole India to look at him for the past one month. He is accompanied by well-known top ex-Govt officials. They are fighting against corruption. Even I have participated with their Chennai part. As far as I know India has not seen any movement like this to fight against Government. We need to appreciate them because they didn’t involve in any sort of wrong doings or illegal practices.

There are a lot of views over it. I watched a program in Star Vijay TV Channel about the Anna’s anti-corruption movement. Many people talked like bull shit without knowing anything. Some people are opposing it because a famous book author oppose it. Her name appears wherever there is a controversy. She was not booked in a sedition case recently. Government let her free. I hope now she is paying the price back. But some people gave really nice information about why they oppose it.

Only two bodies working correctly in India as of now. They are Court and the media. But we can’t believe on media all the time. They will work very active till they didn’t get affected. It is obvious. But what can we say, they have news all the time especially in recent past, we have seen many scams like 2G scam, CWG scam and much more. There is a list keep on rolling. Still there is a lot to come. Any way I am not going to discuss about it. Having a weak system, we can’t blame only on those corrupt politicians. It is because of the people who gave them chance to loot more.

The team Anna’s main objective is to abolish corruption out of India. The recent incidents of corruptions made them to take that as a weapon to start a movement. Is it a newer one to India? Why did they take this alone? Because it was driven by media hype over it and the figures and momentum of the money involved with the scams. While I was talking with one of my colleague, he feels that 5 crore is a small amount of money. Is it so? If you keep on hearing about figures in thousands of crores then it will look smaller. In an older tamil movie, hero will be asked a puzzle to make a straight line smaller without touching it. So he will draw one bigger line nearer to that. So this will become smaller. The same happens now. At least we have RTI and Wikileaks to reveal a little of those scams.

Corruption is the only problem of India as of now. It may be. But it is not the only thing. Everything is involved with money. If we can stop that, we can control everything. That is the agenda behind them. They are not running Government. They can do only this much against Government. Three idiots are not the heroes who acted in that movie. They are with in the Government Ministry who were always eyeing to bring their movement down. The second regime of UPA is not able to see any progressive movement. Either they are in argument for something or they are trying to save their ministers.

India will develop only if it is ruled by a leader who can take decision on his/her own. I am mentioning about current/previous PM. The team Anna is fighting against corruption like only the MPs and MLAs are corrupt. It is not true. Our basic system is weak with many loop holes. They should ask them to upgrade it first of all. Why are they not asking for it? Without that they are asking Government to pass the bill as they have mentioned in the name Jan Lokpal. The points mentioned in the bill is really appreciated. But that is not enough. Because if they pass the bill, 155 out of 543 MPs need to go to Jail. How will they pass the bill then?

India has seen 7 bomb blasts in just two years. And still the killers are kept alive within the jail. WTF moment ! When the Government will awake? After each and every incident, PM and HM appears before media and they ask for people to be calm and they seek unity from people to uproot terrorism from India. Who will dare to do anything if you know you will be treated very well in Indian jail?

There is an unverified saying around media that 65 lakh crores of Indian money is in swiss banks. If we can bring atleast 1/10 of the money, we can see greater development here. Obviously it won’t happen. I am not supporting the opposition party. Both the parties join hands when anything comes to take them out of power. Recently there was a bill before cabinet ministry to bring sports bodies under RTI. It was not passed since many of the ministers having portfolios in sports bodies.

One guy in that TV program argued that all the corporates should be brought under RTI. Corporates are the separate bodies who generate more employments than the Government and all the Government’s revenue depends on them. How is it possible to implement? It is possible only if each and every individual is brought under law. It is not possible otherwise.

In my opinion, India has a lot of issues like corruption. I appreciate Anna & Co for awakening Indian citizens and I support it. There won’t be any person in India without being victimized for corruption since their birth. It will be appreciated if they take all the issues together. And the people must teach lesson to those corrupt politicians and the people who are all trying to bring down Anna’s movement. India will develop iff each and every individual feels it from heart. Let us see. Jai hind!
