    Sharmila,
    Whatta comparison! You have rightly compared Anna With Mission Impossible.
    Like the MI story, regrettably, Anna protest has became a routine affair-never departs from formula.
    Like Tom Cruise, Anna is losing his shine. Like MI series Anna moment is running out of steam.
    But Tom Cruise managed to regain his stardom & MI series popularity by choosing a first rate director-Brad Bird!

    Other day I had this discussion about Anna’s protest with Amit in twitter.
    My question is do this country really need another fast? And like I expected, people yesterday & today replayed with a big “NO”.
    No doubt Anna has made a big difference. But the problem is passing the law is not enough. If the people with power is not good, no matter what law or system a country has, they will find a way to break it. A good law/system without a good set of people is of no use.

    This is country is corrupted because of people, not because of lack of proper law. We need honest people to run this country. Not just Lokpal.

    Imagine, if Kamal, AB, Depp, Damon stop acting & guys like Kamaal R Khan, Tushar Kapoor, Uday Chopra are the only stars who act in movies, do you think movies will be good?

    I would be more happy if Anna & team stop protesting from outside & start participating in government. For a democratic country that will bring really change & a long term solution in a democratic way.
    Problem in this country is good people don’t stand in elections.
    They blog(u), comment(me), tweet(Amit), fast(Anna), shout(Kiran Bedi) …. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Real change happens when good people participate.

    Imagine, instead of Tom Cruise, KRK hanging 100 storeys up on the glass windows of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai!

    PS: I totally enjoyed MI4 & think this part is the best in series. I heard the movie(particularly Burj Khalifa scene) is breath-taking if you watch in IMAX screen.

    • Whoa love your comment.. wish you posted this on TOI.. Can you? I completely agree that its time for team Anna to get to the basics and be in governance, the root cause of all problems will be treated then and there.. Yep, loved M14. Frankly, its the best I have see.. the Burj Khalifa is nothing short of spectacular to say the least. Had me on tenterhooks!

    It took only few months from ‘Anna Hazare โ€“ Indiaโ€™s only beacon’ to ‘Mission Impossible for Anna?’. Very sad for him and real honest Indians.

    But at the same time I am happy that people surrounding him and all genuinely corrupt hypocrites got a good lesson.

    Anand
