Bangalore: “You may never know what results come of your actions, but if you do nothing, there will be no results,” said the great Mahatma Gandhi. This is indeed true and there are activists who decided to walk the talk. Here are 5 Indians activists who have had the courage to raise their voice and who made a difference in the society.

Anna Hazare:
Anna Hazare is a name that is known to every Indian. Hazare took the nation by a storm as he led movements to eliminate corruption, promote rural development, increase government transparency, and investigate and punish official corruption. He also frequently conducted hunger strikes to further his causes. Hazare’s indefinite hunger strike to exert pressure on the Indian government to enact a stringent anti-corruption law, the Jan Lokpal Bill, led to nation-wide protests in support. He was also named among top 100 global thinkers for the year 2011 by Foreign Policy magazine and was named among the most-trusted personalities in India by a survey.
