[tweetmeme source=”akhilsethi” only_single=false] It’s been a long time since I have written a blog-post. Probably it was because of my work-load or my loss of interest in writing. Anyways here I am again writing my views again!
Honestly speaking I was not aware about what the Lokpal bill was and who Anna Hazare is, apart from him being a social activist. But yes, after so much of being said about him on facebook, on TV or even on twitterverse, it just took my attention with a huge surprise.
Everyone in my friend-list is now supporting his campaign against corruption. People in my office, people who I am having a small chat on phone, everyone is saying that we will go to Jantar-Mantar and join this protest to fight against ‘Corruption’. With utmost respect to Anna Hazare jee and to my friends, I just want to ask three things:
a) Have you ever tried giving a bribe to someone, may be a traffic policemen or a so-called ‘thulla’?
b) Have you ever tried giving bribe for your child’s school admission?
c) Have you ever tried giving bribe in a govt. office/organization to speed up your work?
If the answer is yes my dear, then giving bribery is also called as ‘Corruption’ and you are a part it! So, what’s the point of joining this anti-corruption campaign? What do you want to show everyone? Out of a sudden, are you a changed person now? What if, you first join this anti-corruption campaign and after some days, you caught giving bribe to any traffic policeman?
Just think over it!
P.S: I am nowhere saying that I am against Anna Hazare jee or even his supporters. I really respect him and wholeheartedly support the way in which he and others are fighting for the whole country. It is just a small question which is bothering me. My humble apologies to anyone who find it offensive or disrespecting!
