Fasts failed , movements died, govt congratulated itself and the nation cried !-Jack(ed) Roberts
End of yet another fast with no strong conclusion , all the more, when Baba Ramdev has declared he would not surprise the nation by announcing his political party like the Team Anna. Considerably, this was as big a flop show as was Team Anna’s with the only difference that Baba could yet pull a huge crowd in support(after all he has a chain dealers and distributors for his patanjali products).
Did all this actually effect the Government? Even the official and unofficial speakers(Kapil Sibal,Digvijay Singh,Salman Khurshid) followed Prime Minister’s path of maintaining ‘ultimate silence’. The result – neither the Team Anna nor Baba Ramdev could force the government to even utter a single word related to their demands.
Has corruption and black money become so much a part of us that we do not mind at all ? Is there really a leader who can wake us up ? With the failure of two socially recognized giant leaders – Anna and Baba Ramdev, falling flat on ground,for not being able to deliver as committed, the nation ,so much comfortable with all odds around, may remain asleep for another decade or more letting the tree of corruption strengthen itself !
