    The Bangalore gathering is happening at Freedom Park. It is on since the 5th. Freedom park is near Gandhinagar, Majestic.

  16. EVERY town in India has a sex racket run by a magistrate, a revenue officer (ITO/STO), a police officer, some teachers and politicians. Sex racket members receive instant employment and speedy promotions – particularly as special police officer and girls’ hostel warden.

    Yesterday I was watching the NDTV24x7 here in the UK chaired by Barkha Dutt. The subject was Mr Anna Hazare’s fast on corruption in Indian politics on Jan Lokpal bill. Where views were asked from some politicians including Kapil Sibbel. When she asked him to express his opinion then Kapil Sibbel showed his innocence as if nothing happened and showed surprise why this fast is taking place. Also NSC is not a part of any govt and they can take any suggestion from civil society and then he claimed to take them further. He said that he is open to dialogue and further told that he is willing to break impasses.He claimed, “we dealt with terrorist organisation and across the border and the process was to have the dialogue”. So he is comparing this fast at par with terrorists’ demands that he had claimed to resolve through dialogue.

    Finally, he started showing his anger that why she (Barkha) is asking such questions. He asked what are charges against him. And Barkha Dutt was unable to react on that. Why? Can’t she could say that the charge against him is that he saw no wrong doing in the 2G spectrum and later what came out is not hidden from the nation. My question is can we trust these journalists ? They are so vocal with common men but when it come to deal with corrupt officials and politicians I have not seen them to take any strong stand for the nation. They appear too vocal when asking questions from less literate politicians like Lalu but when a more civilised (in appearance) politician (in this case Kapil Sibbel) shows his anger personally , she gets intimidated and do not show such interest of fulfilling their duty as journalist. Why? Are they taking personal favour from them? Why they have two parameters when it come to deal with corrupt people?

    A word for the government too. Just what exactly are you thinking when you are trying to shove an impotent law down people’s throats? And what makes you feel that threatening, crushing or insulting Anna will take away people’s need to rid India of corruption? Anna did not create an anti-corruption sentiment, he merely tapped into it. Crushing Anna will not take away that sentiment. It will just make it fester more. Right now, the movement is still controlled. By going back on your word, displaying arrogance and not listening to the people, you are risking the country’s descent into chaos. Be careful. Accountability is much easier to deal with than anarchy. Fix the Lokpal Bill now, please.

    Finally, for the people of India, it is time to prove Uncle Cynic wrong. There is a bigger truth than his ‘nothing ever changes in India’. That truth comes from the Gita, which states “Nothing is permanent”. The Gita also says, “When the pot of sin overflows, something happens to restore order.” Now, it is up to you to determine if the pot of sin has overflowed. It is for you to say what it means for Indians to act out their dharma. And you, and only you, will decide if it is time to come on the streets.
