Anna Hazare aagey badho!! Hum tumhare saath hain!!

Yes, hum tumhare saath hain. But until when? It's been three days and Sonia madame and her cronies show no signs of relenting. Maybe because if they do, the all-powerful ombudsman of the lok-pal bill will send them to the cooler pronto. Maybe if the Lokpal bill comes into effect, it will start an involuntary jail bharo campaign of epic proportions and then the politicians in jail will legally eat up that tax money that they are illegally guzzling now. Anyway, anyhow, term it a media circus or a people's revolution. Something is happening which is more interesting than sex, albeit mildly so. If we cannot go on hunger strike at least we can support him. Mini-protest vigils are mushrooming all over the country, and I am going to take time off my busy ... ahem... schedule to join in.
