Gandhi topi is again on the streets & this time with a conviction to not let the government eludes the anti-corruption bill, not let the government makes any rhetoric concoction to turn the bow altogether otherwise. This time it might be a prolonged journey for the team Anna to bring the Jan Lokpal Bill on table but capitulation would not be the conclusion to this discourse.
Team Anna members have started their Anshan (fast) from today (25th July 2012) & have given an ultimatum of 3 days to the government to work upon the matter. And, if after the completion of the ultimatum period government wouldn’t behave in this regard, Anna would also take a leap to the Anshan.
Albeit, everyone is amid the confusion (including me) if this Jan Lokpal Bill would ever come on table & if, however, it would come to the table, would it work, would it eradicate the corruption altogether; but one thing is sure that everyone wants it get worked. How far would this Anshan go & how prolonged would be this fight; one may not prejudice, on the basis of number of people gathered on the ground, this time unlike it had always been the backing to decide the parameter of success of the anti-corruption fight.
If team Anna, as it has said, would not succumbed to the government’s tactics & would be firm to its path to fight the misdemeanor, the aam-junta who has still been refraining to come to the ground would come to the floor & the toll would definitely rise towards upward motion. People would, for sure, get sensitive toward the crusader of this journey against the corruption who leaves no stone unturned to bring the perpetrators to justice. Despite being an eighty plus man, he comes back with that vigor & valor again & again to make us realize that we may not & should not move forward with this illicit criterion of working.
Though people still think that it may not cure the widespread epidemic as it would be handled by the same people (like us) who have been pocketing bribes, but even then, it brings the hope to alleviate the germ. It’s not like it is the fool-proof strategy to mar the corruption system but it would, at least, reduce the corruption level from the bottom. When it would be levied as a law people, who have been giving & taking bribes for college admissions & other such procedures to get work done, would abstain themselves while getting embraced to the system as everyone has not the power at their back to provide them bail.
Let’s hope for the best to come & work toward this motion at our own end with not abetting the bribery system & move on our path of fair & justice with conviction.
