Talking volumes on corruption has no end. Talking continues, and so does corruption. People, the media, say every one, groans and grumbles taking a deep sigh of agony with utter chagrin on that count, but there is nothing happening, rather the situation is going from bad to worse. When Anna Hazare launched his movement against corruption first at Ramlila Grounds and later at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi, there appeared some ray of hope, but it was just short lived. Every thing almost collapsed thereafter. A failure of this type was indicated by me in one of my posts on the subject earlier titled as Anna Hazare’s movement and the doubts so expressed by me came true when Anna Hazare first tried to switch over to politics by forming a party for the purpose followed by his retraction. Anna’s team as a whole is confused and there is a large scale internal strife going on amongst its members with the result that the total movement is just bordering a collapse. The tussle between Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdeo over claiming supremacy on the movement was also the reason behind the entire struggle dwindling to zero point. Baba Ramdeo launched a parallel movement against black money parked in foreign country banks claiming its restoration to India, besides corruption. This was to show his strength on which front he succeeded to some extent, but result wise this too proved barren with people in general remaining only disillusioned and disappointed. Problem with Baba Ramdeo is that he is too ambitious a saint for supremacy and also too much in a hurry. The stubborn governmental machinery is all out to chase him to the last as a matter of revenge for the reason that he took cudgels to expose them on different counts one after the other.
The political parties without any exception are the ones who wouldn’t do any thing unless it directly serves their own interest. Many of them prefer to be called as messiahs of socialism, and if their own interest is involved, they have no hesitation in prescribing that if a cow can get pregnant, why not a bull too. Chances of recovery from this hell sort of a situation are only bleak unless some thing like a miracle occurs.
