Comments on: More than Lokpal, does Anna need a speech writer? Perspectives on South Asian politics Thu, 02 Jun 2016 08:03:22 +0000 hourly 1 By: Zirakpuria Sat, 19 May 2012 07:24:43 +0000 This write up seems to have been written just to criticize the great crusader … ! Otherwise the use of the world “Banjh” by Anna is befitting the context and so are his remarks; “advocating flogging for alcoholics and death penalty for the corrupt.”

and if you are offended by a idiom used by do you actually walk on Indian roads..
He is a simple man.. grew up in a village.. he doesn’t talk like a politician, choosing words to please people.. Poor, Naive Anna doesn’t know that how people wants to blemish his image..

humans do mistakes and he’s not a machine. :)
infact you should contribute to the movement by writing an article on how govt is doing all in its power to deny us, the citizens , a clean governance.

In the movie Gandhi, when Gandhi is depicted to take support of his nieces to walk him out and he pleasantly slaps one’s head, I don’t think Gandhi was a hypocrite or a violent man.
Honestly, relax, just like how Frankie said it!

After his stint in South Africa, Gandhi traveled the length and breadth of the country during the first world war. At the end of the day, Hazare is a 7th standard, semi educated, village simpleton. To expect sophisticated aristocratic idioms from his mouth is tomfoolery.

The whole Lokpal protest was not supposed to go that longer. No one can deny the machinations of the government in delaying the Lokpal bill, one will be ill at ease to call Hazare and his team’s intransigence in pressuring government to bring an ombudsman of their own choice. Some one still remembers the old Shambhu Dutta.
