अण्णा हजारे, अण्णा हजारे... आई एम विथ अण्णा.

अण्णा हजारे, अण्णा हजारे... आई एम विथ अण्णा. सपोर्ट अण्णा. ये कुछ वाक्य वेब जगत में छा गए हैं. नेताओं की पूरी बिरादरी घबराई हुई है. मुझे अण्णा के आंदोलन में शामिल होना चाहिए या नहीं, ये सवाल मैं कई दिनों से खुद से कर रहा हूं. मैंने किसी भी स्टेटस पर कमेंट भी नहीं किया. देख रहा हूं. सोच रहा हूं. ये सोचता हूं कि अण्णा एक पूरे सिस्टम को लाने की बात कर रहे हैं. लोकपाल बिल उसी का हिस्सा है. इसलिए मन कहीं न कहीं से सपोर्ट करने के लिए प्रेरित कर रहा है. अण्णा के लिए विकीपीडिया पर जितना इंफॉरमेशन मिला, उसे यहां शेयर करना चाहता हूं. अण्णा आज के गांधी हैं. आज के इस गांधी को तहे दिल से सलाम करता हूं. हम इस मामले में ज्यादा किया कर सकते हैं. आदर्श घोटाला. राडिया प्रकरण, पशुपालन घोटाला, बोफोर्स घोटाला, कोड़ा का घोटाला मामला और न जाने कौन-कौन से घोटाले के मामलों ने मेरे मुंह बंद कर दिए हैं. मैं ये नहीं कह सकता कि अण्णा का केस ग्लैमराइज का शिकार हो गया है या और कुछ. अण्णा ने कम से कम एक आवाज को बुलंद की. और इसके समर्थन में पूरे देश से समर्थन की आवाज बुलंद हो रही है. मोहल्ला लाइव के माडरेटर अविनाश के स्टेटस पर बहसों का दौर जारी है. मेरे कई मित्रों के स्टेटस इसी को लेकर हैं. मामला पूरी तरह विश्लेषण करने का है कि आखिर इस तरह का अचानक आया उबाल किस लिये हैं. क्यों लोग बदलाव चाह रहे हैं. डर सिर्फ इससे लगता है कि अण्णा की पहल का राजनीतिकरण न हो जाए. मैं भी इस मूवमेंट में किसी नेता की भागीदारी नहीं चाहता. न ही किसी तरह की बयानबाजी चाहता हूं.

अण्णा के बारे में विकीपीडिया पर जो भी जानकारी है. उसे यहां दे रहा हूं--

Kisan Bapat Baburao Hazare, (Marathiकिसन बापट बाबुराव हजारे) (born 15 January 1940), popularly known asAnna Hazare (Marathiअण्णा हजारे), is an Indian social activist who is especially recognized for his contribution to the development of Ralegan Siddhi, a village inAhmednagar district, MaharashtraIndia and his efforts for establishing it as a model village, for which he was awarded the Padma Bhushan by Government of India, in 1992.
In April 2011, Hazare started a 'fast unto death' to exert pressure on the Government of India to enact a strong anti-corruption act as envisaged in the Jan Lokpal Bill, a law that will establish a Lokpal (ombudsman) that will have the power to deal with corruption in public offices.

Early life

Anna Hazare was born in Bhingar village in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra state in western India to Baburao Hazare and Laxmi Bai, an unskilled labourer family who owned five acres of land. He has two sisters. Due to adverse conditions in 1952 they had to move to their family home inRalegan Siddhi. He was raised by his childless aunt in Mumbai but could not continue beyond VII standard and had to quit midway due to problems.

[edit]In the Indian Army

Anna Hazare started his career as a driver in the Indian Army. He spent his spare time reading the books of Swami VivekanandaMahatma Gandhi and Acharya Vinoba Bhave that inspired him to become a social worker and activist. During the mid-1970s he was involved in a road accident while driving but he survived.

In Ralegan Siddhi

After voluntary retirement from the army, Hazare came to Ralegan Siddhi village in 1975. Initially, he led a movement to eradicate alcoholism from the village. Next, he motivated the residents of the village into shramdan (voluntary labour) to build canals, small-scale check-dams and percolation tanks in the nearby hills for watershed development; efforts that solved the problem of scarcity of water in the village that also made irrigation possibile. He helped farmers of more than 70 villages in drought-prone region in the state of Maharashtra since 1975. He also motivated the residents of the village to build a secondary school in the village through voluntary labour.

Right to Information movement

In the early 2000s, Anna Hazare led a movement in Maharastra state, which forced the Government of Maharashtra to repeal the earlier weak act and pass a more stronger Right to Information Act, which was later considered as the base document for the Right to Information Act 2005 (RTI), enacted by the Union Government. It also ensured that the President of India assented to this new act.

[Arrest by Maharashtra state government

Anna Hazare was arrested in 1998 during Shiv Sena-BJP rule in Maharashtra when a defamation suit was filed against him by then Maharashtra Social Welfare minister Babanrao Golap of Shiv Sena. He was released following public uproar.

[edit]Lokpal Bill movement

In 2011, Anna Hazare led a movement for passing a stronger anti-corruption Lokpal (ombudsman) bill in the Indian Parliament. As a part of this movement, N. Santosh Hegde, a former justice of theSupreme Court of India and Lokayukta of KarnatakaPrashant Bhushan, a senior lawyer in the Supreme Court along with the members of the India Against Corruption movement drafted an alternate bill, named as the Jan Lokpal Bill (People's Ombudsman Bill) with more stringent provisions and wider power to the Lokpal (Ombudsman). Hazare has started a fast unto death from 5 April 2011 at Jantar Mantar in Delhi, to press for the demand to form a joint committee of the representatives of the Government and the civil society to draft a new bill with more stronger penal actions and more independence to the Lokpal and Lokayuktas (Ombudsmen in the states), after his demand was rejected by the Prime Minister of India Manmohan Singh 
The movement attracted attention very quickly through various media. It has been reported that thousands of people joined to support Hazare's effort. Almost 150 people are reported to join Hazare in his fast. He said that he would not allow any politician to sit with him in this movement. Politicians like Uma Bharti and Om Prakash Chautala were shooed away by protesters when they came to visit the site where the protest was taking place. Many social activists including Medha PatkarArvind Kejriwal and former IPS officer Kiran Bedi have lent their support to Hazare's hunger strike and anti-corruption campaign. This movement has also been joined by many people providing their support in Internet social media such as twitter and facebook. In addition to spiritual leaders Swami Ramdev,Swami Agnivesh and former Indian cricketer Kapil Dev,] many bollywood celebrities like Shekhar KapurSiddharth NarayanAnupam KherMadhur BhandarkarPritish NandyPriyanka Chopra,Prakash RajAamir KhanChetan Bhagat showed their public support through twitter. As an outcome of this movement, on 6 April, 2011 Sharad Pawar resigned from the group of ministers formed for reviewing the draft Lokpal bill 2010.Anna Hazare started his "Fast until Death" at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi, stating "I will fast until Jan Lokpal Bill is passed"
The movement gathered quite a significant amount of support from India's youth visible through the local support and on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.
