Fast unto death against corruption by Anna Hazare from April 5, 2011

Disillusioned with the lack of response from the Prime Minister to fight against corruption, noted social activist Anna Hazare is going to fast unto death from tomorrow onwards. What an irony that Sonia who spoke about fight against corruption as the main plank in the recent Congress plenary session, is going to appear along with the DMK patriarch, Karunanidhi in Chennai tomorrow!! While Anna is fighting at
New Delhi, the real fight is at Tamilnadu. Will the people of Tamilnadu realize the responsibility on their shoulders?

Dear Friends,

The count-down has begun! Anna has put his life on the line for the nation. He has struck down the nonsensical response of our PM, who gave a very distressing response that corruption was not important enough to be dealt with immediately! The indefinite fast will happen!

This is a do or die moment – let us make it happen!

What can you do?

To Shrimathi Jayshree
I am a regular visitor here and I have high regards for yourself and and your articles.
I am just wondering why my comments went unpublished. The facts about Gandhi are well known and the man himself had not denied about sleeping with naked women. Recent book had thrown light on his homosexuality urges. My contempt is for the man who had made our dharma bhomi into a eunuch land, thanks to (unheard of) non violence policies and pacifying attitudes to Muslims.
The truth in my comments are not palatable? Just curious.

Dear Mr rk,

Yes I held back the previous comment by yours as I thought that it is not relevant to this article and is not related to any of the opinions I have expressed so far in my blog.

Now by publishing this comment of yours, readers would know that it is about the recent book on Gandhiji. I have not read that book, nor have formed any opinion - for or against - and not at all keen on reading that book as I think I have better things to spend my time on.

I would rather like to focus on the write-ups and debates on Gandhi's contribution to nation, politics and society than on his sexuality.

From your comment
I understand that you also share a similar sentiment.

//My contempt is for the man who had made our dharma bhomi into a eunuch land, thanks to (unheard of) non violence policies and pacifying attitudes to Muslims.//

Let the debate be issue- based on Gandhi's contributions and be not influenced by his inner life which he did not exhibit outwardly when he was alive.

Thinking from sanatanic angle, prevalence of homosexuality has been recognized. Read my old post

The concluding lines in that article I have written

"One is driven by his past karma to do what he is doing now.

Therefore we don't laud the Great –
nor do we censure the not-Great ones.

Such a mentality taught by this Sanatana Dharma must not be construed as acceptance of the abominable."

You would also like to read this post.

ANNA should focus on movement and not on mudshedding on kegriwal.There is no point on attacking each other.Team Kegriwal is not doing it so team Anna should also keep this in mind.
