A new beginning - India, The Great Anna Hazare, the Cheap politics, the Lokpal Bill, the Jan Lokpal Bill, Corruption and Democracy(part 1).

Much has been said, written and talked about-
  • Anna Hazare
  • Lokpal Bill
  • Corruption
  • Politics
  • Democracy
So why another article? Well mostly because most of the articles are just ‘one-time’ shot to represent individual opinions – which unfortunately are  often biased and with a limited perception.

If you are looking for some ‘great article’ with lots of ‘Technical or Shakespearean English’ or if you are looking for some ‘Masalaa’ or some ‘mud-smearing’ then I can tell you – you are at the wrong place! In that case humbly request you to use Google to quench your thirst.
Also, if you are looking for a quick answer to the questions like-
  • Should I (the author) support Anna Hazare?
  • Why I support Anna Hazare?
  • Why I don’t support Anna Hazare?
  • Why you (the reader) should support Anna Hazare?
  • Why you should not support Anna Hazare?
  • Why you should support Lokpal Bill?
  • Why you should not support Lokpal Bill?
This article will not help either!

But what this series of articles will try to do are-
  • Help in understanding of the Lokpal Bill and the Jan Lokpal Bill.
  • Help in the providing information about leaders of this campaign called – Indian Against Corruption.
  • Help in providing Information that will help you to draw a conclusion your self.
This is because I believe that a person capable to use Internet with a zeal to read about such important and burning topic has the very intellectual capability needed to come to a conclusion about it himself/herself.
On this auspicious day of Janmashtami, I have started a series of articles about these issues. This series of articles are based on my understanding and I will clearly separate the facts from my personal opinions. I sincerely hope it will serve the purpose it aims for.
So lets begin with some key points-
  1. India is world’s largest democratic nation. Unfortunately, its resources are under-utilized and Corruption is one of the key concerns other than Illiteracy, Poverty, Unemployment, Dirty Politics and others. All these problems together have caused hindrance of the society.
  2. I believe every citizen except for a few who are highly benefited by corruption would like India to be corruption-free.
  3. Every journey has a start, which begins slowly with a small step. Same goes with the current campaign.
  4. Anna Hazare doesn’t just happen to wake up from a sleep to do something for the country. He was known long before this Lokpal movement came along.
  5. Lokpal wasn’t Anna Hazare’s idea. He is among one of the supporters of Lokpal.
  6. Lokpal was suggested and originally drafted by Political leaders back in 1960’s.
  7. Lokpal Bills demands existence of ‘Lokpal Committee’ as an Independent body which a few critics (of Lokpal) have termed ‘Undemocratic’ or ‘Non-constitutional’. However, a couple (or more) such bodies already exist in our Democracy.
