When I was planning for a startup, Anna started his Lokpal fight at Jantar Mantar. In initial phase no one was interested in knowing about, What is Lokpal or Janlokal, all were busy with their own tasks, own jobs and with own families, Date was 4th April. I and My team were planning for “Go4Every” and none of us were listening to his voice. But after two three days we read about it in a Newspaper, A revolution for India. Then a thought came in our mind and we started to watch this revolution on TV. After few days movement was finished and my startup plan was also finished; now time was to implement both, yet we have implemented and launched our startup, but Still Lokpal was struggling and another date decided for “Jail Bharo Andolan” – 16 August.
A date which comes after 15 August, Independence day. This was the fight for real Independence. And this was the first day when I joined this movement without knowing anyone in Raj Ghat. Suddenly a Bus came and arrested us from Raj Ghat and blocked us at Chatrashal Stadium. A stadium which was the part of CWG scam.
The Gov rule was there, no one was listening to Aam Aadmi. Gov. was arresting and throwing them into Jail, at the end of the day we were 3000+ people inside the jail. This was not surprising for us, surprising was the strength and crowd outside of the Chatrashal Stadium, More than 1 lakh Aam Aadmi were struggling for us, and someone said “supporters are striking all over the India”. After listening and watching this support, I felt proud and shoutes our statements “Vande Matram”, “Jai Hind”……
Here I was with Dr. Kumar Vishwas, very kind and motivational man. This was my first meet up with him. He motivated and talked. And started doing same…”Vande matram”, “Jai Hind”…. After 2 days in jail, finally we were outside and again started our movement for Janlokpal, Now everyone knows about “Lokpal” so our strength was large.
Still a Man was missing; he was doing everything for this movement, Arvind Kejriwal, Ex. IITian, Ex. IRS officer and RTI researcher. Although I met him in my college when he was campaigning for the movement but he was not much known.
I read him and googled him many times then found him Excellent and again joined him at Ramlila Ground. This time team and support was big and till now whole team were working as Social Activists. Everyone wanted a Real India and Corruption free Hindustan. Anna started his Anshan and Gov. started their politics on Lokpal. First time public were doing for themself without any Gyaan.
Everyone was talking about JanLokpal. Yet this was not tough, all rules were normal, this was an open development policy. But Gov not accepted because it was Gov RAAJ.
I can say there was no Rocket Science in whole Lokpal, No Phd was needed for implementing it but still Gov. was not interested on this.
Still I don’t know Why? So Concluded: They are Corrupt. There don’t want development.
Anna’s heath was going down and down, but there was no effect on Gov. they are giving foolish Ideas…. And at last because of bad health of Anna they promised to Pass JanLokpal. And with this commitment Anna’s left his fast…
Still Only Anna was in focus no one interested to knowing about his team, Arvind , Manish, Kumar and others. They were the key people behind the scene.
After One year of the promise Gov. were doing nothing on JanLokpal. Then a hidden man came outside and again started Anshan on the Anna’s way, but we could not imagine, still there was no effect on Gov., and now they are using abusive language and dictatorship on Aam Aadmi. And they were calling for Politics “Sansad Me Aao Aur Janlokpal Pass Kara Lo”. Now with these activities and dictatorship every Indian was fed up. They also started to talk about Change. They were fed up with BJP and Cong Gov.
So On the call of Aam Janta Mr. Kejrival came with their Ideas and put on the open platform, on 2nd Oct., Gandhi Jayanti, Peace day, he and his team announces a Party and in November month gave a Name “Aam Aadmi Party(AAP).
An IITian, An IRS Officer. He did research on RTI, His press conferences were long and his stamina was strong, He fixed power connections, Forced Sensex corrections, Shaked giant real estate. And did so many other challenging things, Challenges Sheila Dixit and other political leaders for election. And Entered in Delhi Election with a real dream and Good Manifesto, and got 28 revolutionary seats.
I think he is for cities, he is for India, he is for development, Anna left him but still he has power so we can say ‘Anna was not his power’ but ‘he may be Anna’s power’.
Finally things are changed, he changes the Political System, He increases the Vote percentage, He pulled rabbits somehow.
He is brand himself for us and Aam Aadmi Party.
And will take the oath in Ramlila Ground.
This shows politics has been changed and India will Change soon. Everyone has a Hope for Change.
