For all those people who want to support Anna Hazare but dont know what to do ,here is a small list of things you can do
(all those who want to know of the movement check my previous blog http://madhurchadha.com/2011/04/07/why-anna-hazares-victory-is-so-essential-for-us/)
Educate yourself: Anna Hazare is fighting for something called a Lokpal Bill. This bill essentially gives us enough teeth to fight corruption. The government has presented a shamelessly toothless bill which like all other anti corruption bills is a sham and totally biased towards the corrupt. Educate yourself and others around you on what the bill is all about .Know ad let others around you know why it is important You can find the details on
or simpler versions on
Join Anna: Go join Anna, you may not fast but you can be physically present there to show support. More the numbers more the pressure
Have Solidarity Marches/Dharnas in your cities colleges: Another way to educate is to have solidarity Dharna liek Anna’s in you cities/villages/Companies. Does it seems like a waste of time?? Well if you can leave work and celebrate India’s world cup victory ,this my dear friends in much more important. This will not only spread the movement but also help to keep it alive
Blog/tweet/write about it: Yes ..sign all petitions,write a blog,tweet about it Like every video of Anna. Let the government know that people are following,this is not a simple dharna but a new revolution.If you have ever written a Blog you ought to write about this. Write whatever you feel,even a simple message like Anna I am with you
Dont let the flame Die: Every news is Big until the next Big news comes along. This is what the government is hoping for.They are hoping the euphoria will die down,they are hoping that we wil over all it soon and Anna will be back in obscurity. What you can do is simply KEEP ASKING? Yes a simple thing like Whats happening. Keep asking to let the Media know that we are stil interested ,we are still behind Anna and this story needs to Live. Let the government know that if they do not give up they WILL give up office soon. People of India are no longer going to sit Back this time.
Its a Call for action!!!! Dont just Sit behind
