Activist Anna Hazare threatened to go on indefinite fast from today. Slamming BJP and Congress, Anna said that India had no future with Congress and BJP ruling the country, as they are unable to pass strong Lokpal bill.
For years, common man has been suppressed by corrupt and unruly politicians but now when he has stood up, demanding his rights through social media and by supporting Anna Hazare, the government has find mean tactics to deny him the rights - All the politicians, cutting across party lines are demanding ban of social media and censure motion against Team Anna.
Two things that don't let Indians make strides are two Cs - corruption and copying. While we are losing hundreds of crores of taxpayers' money in various scams, we are losing our young brains that are only taught to look for the work of their predecessors and follow that religiously. Nobody would unfortunately provide them a platform where they can share and execute their exclusive and brilliant ideas.
In earlier times, media was known as voice of common people, it was known as the medium where common people. As the time changed everything became part of marketing, everything was turned into commodities. Now everything runs on advertisement.
