India is now Anna Hazare!

It's really an exhilarating experience when you see a mighty government bending to a 73-year old man's steely character.

India is now Anna Hazare. It's amazing how a septuagenarian so easily strikes chord with people cutting across caste, class and age-groups.

Manmohon Singh, P.Chidambaram, Kapil Sibal and Pranab Mukherjee have all made themselves asses in fighting with this simple, unassuming and spirited man.

The swell of crowds in cities across India and beyond rallying behind Anna is an eloquent testimony to the fact that the current UPA rulers are just dud, and they don't enjoy any trust from the people.

We need to redefine democracy at this juncture of history. Should it be it a participative one in stead of parliamentary? Should we continue with the kind that has been fucked by our rulers, and a fake one? Or should we opt for the new version being ushered in by Anna Hazare and his very dedicated team?
