People vs Power

A number of events occurred this summer with the major being, the  rise of India against corruption. The country became one and its people came together against corruption.Beginning with the Anna Hazare's hunger strike in April at New Delhi, that provoked people to stand united against an issue, which is one of the most serious issues till now...and which has resulted into the 2G scam, the cwg scam, the Adarsh housing society case and many more...There had been movements, discussions, marches and social gatherings all around the country in order to support Anna Hazare's call to pass the Lokpaal bill.
And then Yoga Guru Ramdev Baba came into picture with a demand to bring the the Indian currency from the Swiss bank back to the country. He called for people's support  at Ramlila Maidan, Delhi. And then after that all of us know the kind of brutal action that was undertaken by the Delhi police.This left the people there perturbed and perplexed and every individual who saw that action on television "numb".But after this so called incident, everything seemed to be dramatic. Prior to the ramdev baba's prolonged event..certain political issues seemed to be involved within the complete action.
The party at power don't want regarding this matter and so they forcibly hushed people out of the ground at midnight.....And the parties not at center, demand for an answer because they want to be at power.The civics don't seem be a part of this movement and at one sight it looks as a mere political game and Baba having a desire for a mass support to create a political background.
But may be this is just a single side of the coin..and in fact we aren't aware of the other side or what is going on behind the scene.
Well, we can be sure of one thing that now we are awakening no doubt slowly but we have to fight for our rights that we owe being an Indian citizen.The government should look into this matter with a more humane approach. A citizen has a right to protest according to the constitution.


  1. Yes Manali I also condemn the action taken by the Delhi Police against the Baba's followers and saw the happnings on the TV. As you commented that it looked a mere political game of Baba to gain the sympathy of the masses and to creat his own political background. I strongly feel that at the time of Anna Hazare's fasting, Ramdev Baba felt that all the credit will be given to Anna in the movement against corruption, so he decided to play this drama at Ramleela Grounds. Lastly I also want to say that every citizen has right to protest but in a systematic way and not by geathering the mobs, disrupting the city life, making a so called "SENA", asking for very rubbish thigs as to stop the use of 500 and 1000 Rupees notes to stop the corruption. I strongly feel the corruption should be removed from the minds and souls of every Indian citizen. All of us should try to motivate others not to do the corruption thus whole society should stop doing corruption. Corruption could not be stopped by just making a lokpaal bill or some other laws. So think about it....

  2. I agree with you till a great extent...actually the whole act was nearly hideous involving masses just to get some popularity and stand in the movement..and obviously violence is not at all a solution (making a sena for me refers to this only) for such a serious problem...
