Zeitgeist has thrown up a Dinesh Trivedi

Things happen through human beings and not in a vacuum. At this moment 100 years ago, Sri Aurobindo is living in the Alipore jail. So, no escape from practical action... If you look at the History of the World, always the then "current day politicians" have taken the human civilization forward, and not dead people.]

Joining hands, social activist Anna Hazare and Yoga guru Baba Ramdev today announced they would jointly fight for a strong Lokpal Bill and to bring back black money stashed in foreign banks. Hazare, flanked by his team members Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia, said he would continue his fight against graft and for a strong and an effective Lokpal Bill.]

RSS, it seems, is desperate now after the UP defeat and wants to capitalize on the anti-corruption campaign. The political polarization, of course, will take a few more months to crystallize, but by and large, the same secular/communal divide is likely to continue. There is no JP or VP now, but the Zeitgeist has thrown up a Dinesh Trivedi. [TNM55]
