Bangalore: The world saw many mass protests in 2011 - some threw the existing ones off the power, some initiated greater levels of discussions and some lit the flame of hope. It was an year of happenings, an year of anxiety, revolution, anger and protests. Let us look at some of the major mass movements across the world in 2011.



Anti-Corruption Movement in India



People from across the country regardless of its deep rooted diversity, lined behind an ex-army man called Anna Hazare to protest against the gravest course the country has been going through – Corruption. The movement spread like wild fire to almost every state in the country and the result was seen quite evidently. Anna Hazare’s crusade against corruption was ranked in ‘Top 10 News Stories of 2011" list. His struggle began to gain momentum as he began his first hunger strike on April 5, 2011 in New Delhi. Though the recent attempts to go fasting did not draw much atttention, this anti-corruption movment is defnitely a significant milestone in the history of modern India. Anna Hazare with his Satyagrahas once again showed the world what Gandhism stands for, how powerful it 0bring changes and how relevant is the peaceful rovolutionist idoelogy is to the modern world.

1: IN INDIA ANNA HAZARE MOVEMENT IS NOT MAJOR THAN TELANGANA MOVEMENT.
4 CRORE PEOPLE ARE ON STREETS FOR DEMOCRATIC DEMAND OF TELANGANA STATE.AND INDIAN GOVT.DOES NOT UNDERSTAND IT,BECAUSE INDIA DID NOT GET FREEDOM BY DEMAND,BUT BY MERCY OF BRITISH.HENCE INDIA CAN NOT UNDERSTAND DEMOCRATIC MOVEMENT.
AND MANMOHAN SHOULD EXPLAIN ,WHY ANDHRA BASTARDS RULE TELANGANA.IF ANDHRA BASTARDS CAN RULE TELANGANA,WHY INDIA BEGGED FOR FREEDOM FROM BRITISH.
