why support anna Hazare when parliament is running?

Image
As the Anna Hazare begins his historic fast for the third time in the same year, there are supple doubts crippling in the minds of many; as on the other hand govt. has shown its propogative interest in debate by extending the parliament session by three days. There are good number of people who undoubtedly supported him in last times, may say Gandhian might have waited for some time and after getting inputs of session could have moved forth in his vow. But remember the good old 42 years when Lokpal bill has been tabled in the parliament but no stones were turned there-forth!!! its a wild thought to recollect! People might even conceptualise that this time they are on fire, but remember fire even gets its flame down in drizzy cold, we know the mentality of our MPs! If only side by side a revolution and session goes than only there politicians would understand the do's & dont's well! else they just will think that fast would get down with assurance to pass the bill in next…

Moscow, Dec 17 (IANS) Bhagvad Gita, one of the most sacred Hindu religious texts, is facing a legal ban and the prospect of being branded as 'an extremist' literature across Russia, with a court in Siberia's Tomsk city all set to deliver its final verdict Monday in a case filed by state prosecutors.

The case, which has been going on in Tomsk court since June this year, seeks to get a Russian translation of 'Bhagvad Gita As It Is' written by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the founder of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), on the Hindu religious text banned in Russia and declaring it as a literature spreading 'social discord', apart from rendering its distribution on Russian soil illegal. In view of the case, Indians settled in…

Mumbai: Priyanka Chopra, who is reprising her role of Roma in the upcoming instalment of `Don`, says that even though her mission is to catch Shah Rukh Khan in the film, there is still something which attracts her towards the baddie. The first instalment of the Farhan Akhtar-directed film, which released five years ago, showed Priyanka falling in love with SRK. Though she realised that he wasn`t really what he seemed, tables have pretty much turned for the lady who is now on a mission to destroy Don in the second instalment. "When it comes to Don, there is this really interesting relationship between Roma and him. Her life`s mission is to catch him. Having said that, there is still something strange that draws her towards him. She is angry with him for what she has done to her but it is tough for her to hate him," Priyanka told reporters. The 29-year-old actress says that the combination of Shah Rukh`s charisma and her revengeful attitude gives birth to a love-hate r…
