Crowd Or Cause- Which is more important?

It is unfortunate to note that Media is highlighting the absence of crowds (and not cause) at the meeting of Anna Hazare at Jantar Mantar where his team members are undertaking fast unto death for the passage of strong Lokpal Bill. People are not that ungrateful as is being sought to project as to forget the lead taken by Anna in shaking the conscience of the nation against the scourge of all pervasive corruption in the country. The decrease in the number of persons attending his rally does not indicate that the level of corruption has also declined. He is fighting for a national cause which affects every citizen of the country except the corrupt. It is not possible for every citizen to be physically present at such gathering as there are number of other modes through which people are lending their support to the movement. The crowd theory is being advocated by vested interests which will not work for long time. The Media and other forums which played a major role in this movement should continue their support for this movement to eradicate corruption from the country before it is too late.

  1. Corrupt Congis have conspired with the Pope with Sonia's help to start the Olympics at the same time as Anna's fast, to undermine him. The timing of the Olympics has to be questioned. Anna had published his schedule long before. Why did they have to coincide? But India's corruption-hating masses will give them a fitting reply.
