A beginning..Jan Lokpal Bill

Its been years....Every one is complaining about how corrupt India is getting day by day... Even internationally, it is known that Indian bureaucracy is bad... Whether is the education department or the transport sector, corruption is rearing its ugly head every where.... At such a time the introduction of the Jan Lokpal Bill is a huge relief....
Over the years, we common people have been discussing, cribbing & crying at our country's plight, there have been films,articles & news on corruption, on how difficult life is for an honest common Indian, but still our thick-skinned politicians have done nothing to improve themselves... 

Due to this, a general feeling of helplessness clouded over the common indians..All of us needed just a push, a reason, a support to come together against corruption in a concrete manner.... I guess the Bill is was the trigger point, it was all India needed to come together to fight against injustice.....

I too felt as if I personally had won the world cup... the firecrakers, the shouting n screaming, the clapping... all those emotions...!! I enjoyed it all..."dhak dhak go, India go!!" When Bhajji cried, & Tendulkar was lifted up & carried, the entire nation was crying with joy..after all it was a 28 year long wait.... how could any true Indian not feel happy with the country getting so much international glory?? After all, India is a cricket crazy nation....
