Don’t buy a single vote more than necessary. I’ll be damned if I’m going to pay for a landslide.

Hazare buries Team Anna? Or has he burnt the team and passed a stake through?
The Mascot and the face of the team suddenly did not feel like the glue he was?
Surely with his decision to disband the team, India against Corruption ceased going anywhere. The movement has surely fallen apart .Some key members nurtured political ambitions with oracular demos which were very evident from day one!
Was it Anna’s dismay that found expression or was it his sustained and suppressed anger which finally caused the crack!
Different ideological leanings and conflicting approaches to deal with issues on severely discordant notes were heard repeatedly on TV and by the time Anna disbanded the team it was ridden with fissures. Some rabble-rousers surely provided the movement with the fillip it needed but I was one of the first to back out by day Two!
Whilst Anna has gone back to his roots of being a social worker the others are branching out to join the turbulence of active politics? Surely there was no sting in the movement right from the very word go and the finally outcome was some of the people and aspirants being catapulted onto center stage.To some, a cruel joke being played on the people who gave it all up to lend whole hearted support for a STRONG Lokpal Bill.
Most of media has become an aspect of show business, offering mostly infotainment. It has evolved into an entity that tends to function as a PR agency for the wealthy and powerful multinationals and members of Govt in power. The commercial strategy that is implemented, appeals to emotions, personal and community safety, and mostly triggers indoctrinated views of authority.
The wily politicians are having the last laugh seeing this whole disarray! From fast to super fast mode the team got disbanded. Guess the blueprint for surrender was already drawn with the so called “secret” meeting and the subsequent fast was mere posturing.
I had heard that even the weak became strong in unity, but in this case, I shudder to think what might have been the inducement or threat used by the ruling coterie to ensure Anna give his fast up so super fast!
There goes ANNAther man sinking into the gargantuan quicksand of corrupt politics! RIP Team Anna!
