Anna Hazare Ji:WHY we are with u?????

Last week,a columnist for Times of India,came out with with an article titled "Why Anna Hazare should not win this battle" and daggers were drawn against him.....as to how could he even think such a thing??

But what I dont understand is WHY CAN'T he think such a thing????

Frankly, personally I am not a supporter of the government nor am I convinced with Anna's approach. This government has taken enough money from me in taxes and more with rising prices, interest rates etc. No doubt it's great that at least some one like Anna is standing up and fighting corruption. His movement deserves all the motivation and encouragement....But why is this campaign turning into either-you-are-a-supporter-or-a-corrupt-person???

Lakhs of people,not only within India,but also outside are coming out in huge numbers to support the movement,but its a thing to wonder whether these people support the Lokpal Bill or just Anna Hazare?Do they understand where the Lokpal bill is stuck and why it has not been passed since 1969? Do they really know the consequences (good or bad) if the judiciary and the Prime Minister fall under the Lokpal?OR is it  just about being a part of a mass movement against the government??

Sure,we are all dealing with price rice, taxes, potholes, corruption, long queues and sometimes left with no option but to pay bribes at hospitals and police stations,but is it a fair threat when Anna says "It is either my way or I fast unto death!"Also think about why the government is not giving in after receiving so much flak, they could have a reason or two.......

Ours has always been a country where it doesnt take too much to gather a crowd.....and if the protest is against the Government,it becomes even more simple....but it will be worth it to ask a few such supporters a question or two on the Lokpal bill and their reason to support it...there will be quite interesting answers there!!!

Too Difficult.....???

How difficult is it to simply "Let Go"....  

Throughout,there are so many things that we have to learn to let go. We have to let go of situations, things, memories, people and even ourselves.

It's easy to form an attachment to people and things. When you've formed an attachment to people and things, it can be a very painful experience and feeling when you realized that it's time to let go. Even the mere thought of not having that person or thing in your life just squeezes your heart in pain.

But,sometimes,it does become necessary.....

From quite a long time now,I have been trying to do the same.....but have been unsuccessful as of yet...Its not that I am not trying enough ....but it is a daunting task.....and the thoughts I want to run away from just keep on coming back....or maybe I get drawn towards them..!!

Dunno why I have to share this on the blog...but I just wanted to share my thoughts after reading the below lines somewhere...

"Letting go of your old self and the process of letting the new you emerge can be one of the scariest experiences in your life. But by leaving behind your old self and taking a leap of faith into the unknown, it might just reveal what you are truly capable of becoming"

Maybe,it will hold true that.....When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
