Out of touch media

The media portrayed, crowds at Anna Hazare’s protests as spontaneous. That seems to be, partly in doubt.

RSS has confirmed, that they supported Anna Hazare’s movement. RSS usually does not rush to the press or claim credit. If RSS is claiming credit, it is credible. RSS with a reputation of being a cadre based organization, can make a difference.

And that raises questions about the ‘spontaneous’ crowds that gathered. The ruling party’s claim of Anna Hazare being an RSS agent – while partly hyperbole, stands confirmed.

Two times …

Anna-Baba anti-corruption protests were reminiscent of Jaya Prakash Narayan’s movement in the 1970s – also partly supported by the RSS. Jaya Prakash Narayan’s movement finally paralysed the Indian State – and provoked Indira Gandhi to impose emergency.

Anna-Baba have succeeded in identifying the दुखती रग ‘dukhti rag’ – the jangling nerve, of the people. Indians joining in Anna-Baba protests, are protesting about many issues – and using Anna Hazare’s and Baba Ramdev’s Anna-Baba protest vehicle to ride.

Thin ideas

Anna-Baba’s agendas are thin – very thin. But the people are thick as flies. Just like Jaya Prakash Narayan’s movement.

Clueless on why Indians expect corruption free governance, or how India’s traditional rulers using भारत-तंत्र Bharat-tantradelivered corruption free regimes, these movements are trying failed Western solutions on a successful India.

So, with this thin agenda, and ‘outside’ support, how long can Anna sustain …

well we are still under teh british rule . just that the colour of skin is bronw instead of white. Targetting team anna members is exactly what I had expected would happen. Our politicians are the worst breed of animals and when good people pick up a fight agains them , this is what happens. The other day on a news channel I heard salman khurshid joking shjamelessy that ' Hum business class hka paisa economy mein travel karke nahin bachhate. yes ofcourse, why would you guys save. Desh ka paisa to sab aap logo ka hi hai. wealth of India is the property of the ancesstors of all our ploiticians . The kind of money that is spent on our polotiticna is equivalent to buying helicpoters . They dont desrve travel by bus and are targetting Kiran bedi who saved money for her foundation by puttign herself to inconvenience. How mny poilticians to this ? If you are really in politics only to serve the country, why do you guys spend crores on travel by air, why do you wnat luxurions houses in South Mumbai , or the elite regions of Delhi, why do you guys spend crores of rupees on renovation of houses of MLA's ministers? for filling up potholes, the quality of material that is used isn not even worth a few hundred rupess and then they shamelessly say - we dont save money like what Kiran bedi did. We indians should now get united and should not lose focus agains these corrupt brown british rulers.

Therefore it is essential to safeguard any claims they may try to sting you for the undocumented damages.
