BHARAT RATNA FOR ANNA HAZARE!NOBEL,TOO!
Nobody in their right minds will challenge anybody - ANNA HAZARE deserves the country's highest civilian award more, much more than anybody else.. He is the single most important person in the country and it's time to honour him. NOT BECAUSE HE EITHER WANTS OR NEEDS THIS HONOUR. But the Young Indian will finally understand and appreciate the true value of the Bharat Ratna if it is given to Anna. He alone has galvanised a despairing generation and given hope to over 500 million disillusioned youth. That is not just a feat, but it is one of the greatest achievements of the 21st century. The Nobel was denied to Mahatma Gandhi. Let it not be denied to Anna.Surely he deserves it far, far more than Obama! If you agree with me.... raise your hands.... and your voices. I'll hear you in distant Phuket. And my heart will soar like those 'wish lanterns' I see being floated on the beach by the happy people of this land of smiles!
