Don’t you think; Practice what you preach; pursuit of truth; building a corruption free; prosperous; safe society; equality before law; empowering people to think and pursue the welfare of the people & make elected representatives (parliament and assemblies) to make them into laws for the welfare of the nation & send the message loud and clear “CORRUPTION DOESN’T PAY” is Anna-ism? Like Gandhi-ism Anna-ism is also never going to die?
When there Is a will; there would be the way?
When the will is absent and vision missing; all you end up with is surveys, debates, committees; subcommittees & nothing constructive happens?
The crux of the matter is; to build a corruption free prosperous and safe nation; with an opportunity; for every one to become a honest bread winner; in the event he wants to be one; what you essentially need is the political will?
We also need money; which will not be; a problem more than the solution; in the form of mounting debts; black economy (where rich become richer & poor; poorer); scams (where the people who are trusted & voted to power; loot the country – a case of fence eating the crop- subvert democracy; want to substitute the word “people” with “politicians” and can’t distinguish the difference between; constitution which is supreme and a parliament; which is having a mandate; from the people who are supreme?
The legislations; should be in the interest of good governance & welfare of all sections of people and can’t be to provide escape roots; to the corrupt to deposit their loot in secret foreign bank accounts or in tax haven countries?
Constitution wanted Judiciary to be the brain and media (freedom of speech) the diagnostic tools with checks and balances (sufficient controls already exist in CrPc)?
ALL THE MESS WE ARE IN; IS DUE TO LOOP-HOLES IN LEGAL PROCEDURES; WHICH HELP THE CORRUPT TO DELAY THE judicial PROCESS; AT TIMES; TILL THEY DIE?
For making Anna-ism work; All we need is strong lokpal with associate bills (spirit of Jan lokpal); fast track courts or fast-tracking of courts to deal with erring; deliver the justice with in 3 to 4 moths (all inclusive of appeals & legal procedures); sending a message to all “CORRUPTION DOESN’T PAY?

When standing committees; ministries; bureaucrats public servants; take decisions under the influence of some corrupt; influential people and help; the corrupt in looting the country; People “supreme in a democracy”; They & they can only force all elected representatives to take corrective steps; and it is people’s democratic right?
Bringing all corruption issues & scams to light at this time; is more appropriate to defend relevance of; SpIrit of Jan lokpal draft; to control corruption to the tune of 25-30% of GDP; which is going into wrong hands year after year; making GDP growth meaning less; people; have to face the burden of inflation; falling rupee value & ill effects of corruption to get their legitimate works done by public servants?
