Udaipur Youth Supported Anna Hazare’s Movement

In protest of Anna Hazare’s arrest on the issue of the JanLokpal bill, a candle march rally was organized today on the 17th of august 2011 at the core of the lakecity at the Fatehsagar lakeside (paal) by all the youth of Udaipur. This great public protest and gathering of about 300 Udaipurites was in the support of Hazare’s Anti-corruption (Janlokpall bill) movement. One was able to feel the anger in the atmosphere against the government’s move of arresting Anna and his follows.

The spark off protests against the government’s move of arresting Anna and his followers created anger in the whole atmosphere. The step was initiated by a few regular readers of UdaipurBlog at a dedicated Chat room for them, and was wholeheartedly supported by all the members of UdaipurBlog. The whole spark was enlightened online only and no offline authority was involved here.

UdaipurBlog team is thankful to all the people of Udaipur for their massive support and we kindly appeal all of them to maintain a supportive and peaceful atmosphere in the city, and to oppose corruption in any form

Here are few glimpses from the march at Fatehsagar in protest of the Anna Hazare’s arrest and refusal for demonstration by the Indian Government

Independent India Turning 64: Are we Really Independent?

Independence Day- the day when British left the golden bird free from their rule. But the bird was left looted, harassed, with the slightest of hope to survive. Then followed a long fight for the survival of golden bird. 64 years have passed and the country is still ‘developing’. The whole world says and even we believe that we are the citizens of an independent country. But a question always keep on hovering in my mind, the answer to which I never found out. You also give it a try. Is India really free? Are we not bound by so many handcuffs of ever growing poverty, illiteracy, unemployment, crimes, men-women inequality, limited technology and the worst of all which potentiate other bounding forces too- Corruption?

Shocked seeing the figure?? Don’t be because there is still a large figure behind the scene which the CBI has failed to suspect.

Angrez chale gaye par inhe chod gye”- the best phrase that can describe our corrupt politicians and high commanding officers. And why only blame these famous names. Even an ordinary man is giving them a tough competition- Wrong ways to save income tax, Under table income, and what not.  Fighting with any outsider is easy but how to fight with someone amongst ourselves. How to punish a crow from within a group of parrots? And what adds to the tragedy is that everyone is inside this dirty cave of corruption. Those who are in the light of honesty and truthfulness don’t want to make an initiative to clean this dirt.

A grand salute to those great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Swami Vivekanand, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Bhagat Singh who broke a revolt against British and drove them back to their home. Today again we need such leaders to drive corruption out of this beautiful country. Then we all will proudly say that “Yes!! We are the citizens of an independent country which flies unbound in the sky of glory and success”.

Happy Independence Day to all from Udaipur Blog!! Let us vow to make our country a free bird again.

Jai Hind!!
