The Jan Lokpal Bill March

On Aug 17, i walked with hundreds of others in support of the Jan Lokpal Bill. It was an exhilarating experience to be part of a crowd that huge with hundreds of candles aglow.

Young and old, rich and poor, all converged together at the People's Plaza in Necklace Road to support Anna Hazare who fasted for 288 hours. The entire nation was in a frenzy for several days with marches and peaceful protests.

The Jan Lokpal Bill seeks stronger anti-corruption measures to bring the wide-spread corruption in the government down. It almost brought the Congress government in the centre down!
