In the year 2012, fasting does not succeed against the tyrants. While Anna Hazare is trying his best to fast -unto-death, the UPA government shows no signs of relenting on Anna’s demands. Ironically this is country where millions go hungry and no one ever pays attention, so whats so special about Anna Hazare. Certainly, Anna is following the footsteps of Mahatma Gandhi who also led similar fasts against the colonial Britishers. Today the same tool is useless against our own people. The regular fasts by team Anna are sometimes perceived by some in India as “Drama”. Some have even called Anna’s revolution a revolution with ideas. I guess thats not the case with Anna. He is very clear on his goal, but unfortunately some people who have jumped into Anna’s band wagon have confused the mass and media of India.
Anna seeks to get a very macro-level change in the country in a non-violent manner. However, most politicians in India are not of the same caliber as the British. The generation of politicians in India today are criminally backed or involved in multi-crore scams in which no one has ever been sentenced despite media digging out some valid evidences.
After analyzing team Anna’s failure, its very much evident that India needs a revolution like the arab spring.
