2. There was no democracy subversion. No water cannon, no live or rubber bullets, no tanks, machine gun, no tear gas, nothing. No stopping and controlling of media, or monitoring of social networking either.
In fact, the fact that these handfuls of people are shouting themselves hoarse against the government and blocking roads without getting shot, proves that the democracy is healthy and robust.
3. This movement is not a mass movement, or a movement of India. 10,000 people across the country is nothing compared to the population of India. Rural and lower strata of people are not even aware of it. A sizable mass of intelligentsia opposes it, too.
4. Anna Hazare, the man, is quite an opportunist and publicity seeker. And a megalomaniac too. Also, he is not democratic either. A man who goes on a hunger strike to bend and coerce the government at his own will and form laws without debating in parliament is not democratic.
5. This thing will not solve the problems of India. There is no quick fix for corruption. Hysteria won’t solve it. Nor will any bad law.
