Dandi March II

Posted in Society by justaroundme on March 24, 2011

No computers, no internet, no facebook and no twitter – without these high-tech means, how do you bring together an entire nation to march towards a change?.What the social activists did during the Indian freedom struggle to unite the entire country seems as an implausible task in this present day and age. But they believed, they fought and they won and we breathe freedom. Today, we are marching – but not against a foreigner but to fix the dire state of our corrupted political system.

Any law abiding citizen of India living to his/her due diligence would weep silently by seeing this list and is growing consistently. Be it the right to education for women to the recent RTI and RTE nothing was granted without a fight by the social/political activists. I feel that the activists are the pure catalysts in a society.They shout, scream, get beaten up;yet, they remain strong in their vision.All the struggle they take is for benefit of the entire nation.But I feel that all their struggle is taken for granted by many who do not even vote and be indifferent about the current state we are in. I get deeply hurt by the “Ram rules or Ravaan rules, it does not matter to me” attitude,especially if it is among the most educated people.

Have you heard about “Anna Hazare”, living Mahatma Gandhi. He is marching against corruption and also he has promised to fast unto death if the Prime Minister is not passing a stringent bill on Anti-Corruption.He is a simple man with no Swiss bank accounts. He lives in a temple.

Dandi March 2 is happening in a global level on March 26 2011. Please pass on the word around and support Anna and his team. We being part of the blog-sphere can write about it,tweet, display the banners in our facebook profiles and we can think about to spread this in all creative ways.

Please share your thoughts and let us play our small part of the big change.
