This is an important time not just for us Indians but everyone who thinks that corruption eats into our values like a cancer sickening and weakening the very foundation in which our nations and societies are built.
As an Indian I bow my head to the man who dedicated all his life for the betterment and upheaval of the downtrodden and then at seventy one decides to set an example to all others who think that somethings can never be fixed. This is his answer not only to the corrupt, but also the ones who readily accept the corrupt and to all those who remain silent when the vultures dig in their claws into the remaining virtues that we have as humans and citizens of a great country.
Sixty three years ago another great soul had taken three bullets on his chest, one each for every color on the national flag so that the charkha (spinning Wheel) in between could spin the nation to a new beginning. Today I bow to him as well for I feel that we as a nation have even capsuled him and his thoughts in bottles that we open up only on handful days a year.
I bow my head also to every indian who is physically supporting the effort to see that corruption be eliminated not just by talk but by action that will put the corrupted behind bars for minimum 5 to maximum life imprisonment. And I pledge my support to this non violent fight that will in the future send shivers to every corruption in the government. This would be the mark of a movement that can enlighten the world.
We belong to the largest democracy in the world, the largest number of common people who exercise their power to decide who should run the country. Through our power to decide our fate we have inspired the world to get on its feet and walk to their dreams.
Without shedding a drop of blood other than ours we have made our enemies retreat. With both hands we have welcomed every single race and religion who were prosecuted and displaced from their own land. We have always in our diverse cultures, languages and even looks upheld our belief that we are one.
No where in world can you witness such a remarkable example of unity that we have acquired through our generations. And no way are we going to give away all these for a handful of corrupt thugs who use power to run their empires.
Pledge your support to Anna Hazare! Let us make this the final fight to end corruption.
