Anna Hazare: "We have only won half the battle."
The spirit was infectious. The crowds were well-mannered and orderly. Not to mention enthusiastic and vocal. "Every section of society is here", noted a young boy walking past. "Babu-ji, dekhna, Anna-ji ki jeet hogi", insisted a white haired toothless man. The police was calm and pleasant. I may have missed Aamir Khan but I did meet Dr. Naresh Trehan who assured me Anna Hazare was fine. The crowds cheered and clapped with hands over heads when it was announced the Parliament would finally take a voice vote. Anna Hazare has lost 7 kilograms in 12 days but the protest is far from over. Indian politics will never be the same again.
