I am sure that future will present us many opportunities to show our cynical abilities but this is not the time for that. Anna is India and India is Anna may not be the popular sentiment but Corruption in India and India against Corruption surely is.

After blundering and dithering, the Manmohan Singh cabinet seems set to tide over the mini-crisis created by the inept arrest of social activist Anna Hazare. Politically, the UPA is the loser. 

Gandhi used to undertake fasts for self-purification. This man Anna has no idea of self-purification. He undertakes fasts to threaten the government. And he breaks the law if he is not allowed use of a public space. 

Anna Hazare, the man with good intentions but zero knowledge about the causes of corruption, has done his deed. He is capable only of this. And now he has done it. 

Corruption in India can't be removed without first implementing fundamental electoral reforms. Without such things it is like a balloon. If sqeezed on one side, it simply moves to other places.

As India takes over the presidency of the UN Security Council for the month of August and Indian strategists and policy makers trumpet this event, it is time to take a deeper look at the challenges facing this 64-year old democracy.

At the outset one must admire the professionalism, courage and conviction of S & P to stand firm on their decision to down grade credit rating of USA notwithstanding a $ 2 trillion error in calculations. 

When Dwivedi announced the formation of the uninspiring committee, observers were quick to notice the absence of Home Minister P Chidambaram and Rahul mentor-cum-general secretary Digvijay Singh.

I reviewed the Government.s Lokpal bill in great detail. I am deeply concerned and not to mention alarmed with what I learned from it. Government has completely ignored the wishes of the common man and made a mockery of our hard fought struggle for strong anti-corruption laws.
