I am Anna Hazare



Portrait of Anna Hazare by Siddharth Iyer (link below)

I have bribed a few, Took the easy way through
But all along the way, I knew I was not true

Then Along came a man, Who voiced my opinion
His words echoed in the hearts of a billion population
Showed us how we could stand for what we believe in
And now I say no more to corruption, Bcz I am Anna Hazare.

I read in the books, about the father of our nation
But none after him taught me, how to put those words into action.

Then Along came a man, Who voiced my opinion
His words echoed in the hearts of a billion population
Showed us the way to put Gandhi’s words into action
And now I say no more to corruption, Bcz I am Anna Hazare

I watch in dismay, as bigger scams unfold everyday
But I see no punitive action. I feet robbed; I feet raped.

Then Along came a man, Who voiced my opinion.
His words echoed in the hearts of a billion population,
Talked less, but prompted us to take the first step.
And now I say no more to corruption, Bcz I am Anna Hazare.

I was not born when freedom fighters gave their life for the nation.
But if we don’t stand up today, it would mean disrespect to their contribution.

Then Along came a man, Who voiced my opinion
His words echoed in the hearts of a billion population,
He shouted a battle cry, to fight for India, Against Corruption
And now I say no more to corruption
Bcz I am Anna Hazare
