Social Reformers Who made a Mark in the Indian History
Bangalore: Social reformers have always thought of improving the society and bringing a change in the lives of people. India has seen many heroes in its rich history. August 15 is Independence Day; let’s salute the few heroes who have helped in shaping the country to what it is today.
From a soldier to now a social reformer, Anna Hazare’s journey has not been as simple as it might seem. He calls himself fakir, one who has nothing and wears only khadi clothes. Anna Hazare today is widely acknowledged by people for his protest against corruption.
The original name of Anna is Kisan Hazare. He was born on 15th June 1937, in a small village in Ahmednagar. After his stint as soldier, Anna returned to Ralegan Siddhi, a village affected by Poverty. He was a strong follower of Gandhi and he along with a group of youths shut down the Liquor shop in the village.
Through his strong leadership skills he bought change in the society; he conducted mass marriages, removed caste system, and conducted Gram Sabha that is followed in the Gandhian philosophy. The Lokpal Bill awakened the people of India to rise against corruption.
Presently Anna "is now focused on Janlokpal, Right to Reject, Right to Recall, Farmers problems, Change in Education in System."
