It seems to have taken 42 years for this Bill in the making, which should enshrine Human Rights in Law. It is good fortune that there is in our midst a resolute saintly figure like Sri Anna Hazare, who I call the National Uncle of India. His ideals are the same as those of the Founding Fathers of India, Bapu and Chacha Nehru-ji.
Even after independence from the British in 1947, there are still whole groups of people in India who still feel excluded from a participative, welcome-all democracy.
Can you understand the years and years of frustration and anger that people feel by exclusion? It is that anger and frustration that will evaporate once the Jan Lokpal Bill is actually written into Indian Law. It would really be listening to the hearts of those people. A new era of peace and progress and prosperity will unfold once the Bill becomes Law.
Furthermore, there ought to be a stipulation in Employment Law forbidding employees from asking for baksheesh or bribe. When the citizens get good service for which they pay without having to pay an extra something, it will be a happy day for all.
