India stands up for a cause

Friday afternoon I went for the sit-in (picture)in front of Mother Teresa's statue at the Park Street-Camac Street crossing to express my solidarity with the 73-year-old Gandhian Anna Hazare who is on a hunger strike against corruption in Delhi.
I was there for a couple of hours and saw that people of all ages, castes, creed, students to business men, senior citizens to college girls singing in one voice, lending their active support to the cause for which Anna Hazare has gone on a hunger strike in Delhi.
Cutting across barriers and social status, people have come forward in support of the stand taken by Hazare against corruption. What was most encouraging was the spontaneous response of younger generation.
The fact that the entire country can unite, even if it is for some time, in celebration and suffering, for cricket or against corruption, is a matter of great mental relief for me. I see it as a true example of Unity in Diversity.
