Now Dandi March in US against corruption in India
Washington, March 2 (IANS)

A group of NRIs, inspired by the historic Dandi March led by Mahatma Gandhi in India's fight for freedom from foreign rule, have organised a 240-mile walk in the US against corruption in India.


Starting at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park, San Diego, California March 12, "Dandi March II" goes through Los Angeles and ends March 26 at Gandhi Statue, San Francisco. The dates coincide with the dates Gandhi did his historic march in 1930.

Every major city in USA, 10 major cities in India and 8 other countries globally join the movement by organizing supporting events March 26, the organisers said.

Conceived to fight those who seek to plunder and enslave their own country are to push the government to enact Jan Lokpal bill and ratify UNCAC which are designed to free India from the clutches of corruption, and to bring back the hidden money from foreign banks, they said.

"The recent scams involving unimaginably big amounts of money, such as the 2G scam, are well known. It is estimated that more than trillion dollars are stashed away in foreign havens, while 80 percent of Indians earn less than 2$ per day and every second child is malnourished," the organisers said.

"While this rampant corruption is a cause for serious concern, the good news is that movements against it have arisen all over the country. Dandi March II is the attempt by NRIs to bring together and escalate these movements into a powerful force."

This effort now has support from the stalwarts in anti-corruption movement and other progressive groups in India such as Lok Satta Party, India Against Corruption, The 5th Pillar (Chennai), Youth For Better India (Hyderabad) Saaku (Bangalore) and Save India From Corruption, the organisers said.

Why rely upon NRIs to hold Marches thousands of miles away from the Corruption hub? Are Indian people within India itself sleeping? Unless they wake up, it's of no use to hold rallies across seven seas.

Highly unlikely that Canadian NRIs will follow the suit. US march was not even published/telecast-ed in any of the mainstream Indian news media.

Let's first join hands against Babu culture and their slacking attitude here in Indian Consulates. This is right in our face.

Weired! Suddenly everyone woken up after the Egyptian uprising. It's a long way to go for any Middle-Eastern and Asian countries to cough up a deepest rooted corruption from it's shores.

Indian uprising has nothing to do with egyptian or any other.
"Bharat Swabhiman Andolan" started long ago, seems like you are not aware what going on in India.

'mcg7', I am aware of what's going on in India each minute.

Bharat Swabhimaan Aandolan, for what I gathered is just a few speeches and a big convoy by Ramdev, the Yoga Guru. While I am a big follower of Baba Ramdev and truly believe in his philosophies pertain to Yoga and the life per se, he does indulge in these fame inducers from time to time.

Alas! It has nothing to do with general mass movement so far. At least I don't see it yet. Unless, a common man comes out in droves any such Swabhiman Andolans are highly unlikely to bear any fruit. Indian political, judicial, babudom, police, bureaucracy doesn't have any hope. The system needs a complete 360 degrees overhauling. Unless the system is created where we won't have any more illiterate politicians and public servants, even mass movements are a waste. Things just seem to repeat themselves.

Furthermore, it has everything to do with Egyptian styled movement. Why out of a sudden every nation full of tyrants is waking up? However, what would happen in Egypt is still to be seen, and how productive was it other than the ousting of Husn Mubarak.

Also, there was only one Gandhi, one Martin Luther King, and one Mandela. We don't have any such leaders exist now.

Agree, it is going slow but working.

All influential people are working together with Baba Ramdev, he is not alone.

Kiran Bedi(Ex IPS officer), Ram Jethmalani(senr Lawyer), Dr Subramanian swami(economist and leader JP) , Anna hajaare(socialist) and many other big names.

thanks to this awareness, A raja, Balwa, CWG accused and many others are already in Tihar jail.
it's just matter of time when Karuna-nidhi, sonia gandhi, diggy-raja, kalmadi and others will join them in tihad jail

I am very positive, this movement will not stop till corrupt congress will be kicked out from Delhi and all black money will be returned back to India.
I wish if India interduce death penalty for such corruption,
Pune based hasan ali(horse trader) has $ 8.04 Billion(confirmed) dollrs in UBS
and we have hundreds of hasan ali's in Congress and in other parties.
:mad::down:

Very true said,
It will change, It will take time, BUT I can see the changing future.
There are many negative thinking people (although highly educated) in this forum itself, so how could people in smallest village of India can understand what is going on?
'Aam aadmi' in India relies on newspapper, TV & radio news. Mainstream news media are backed by spnsoring MNCs and corrupt politicians.. and therefore.. they do not telecast/publish such a huge events which will open eys of 'aam aadmi' in India.
Any historical movement starts with 'few speeches'
Aastha is the only channel that covers most Bharat swabhiman programs.
These people are openly challanging Sonia Gandhi, MMS, Digvijay Singh with name calling....
I also agree that, 'Aam aadmi' is just being selfish and is pretending to be ignorant of what is going on...They like to discuss about the corruptions scandals with their friends & familly, BUT don't want to act anything against it.
They will wake up and this will change... just keep your eyes open...

I also agree that the dandi march that is happening in US should have happend in India. Obama has no interest in what is happening with India.

LOL. How many of u live in india? None? At least I live here in India and aware of what is going on. Agreed. Only Aastha covers Baba Ramdev. I like what he says. Contributed financially also. But.....by the time change comes, if at all, he may be dead. I am talking abt the time it takes. Aam aadmi is busy in theri own world. Youth is caught up with cell phone and internet chat rooms.

Being positive is different from being realistic. BTW, no one heard of this dandi march in USA. And no one cares abt it. Obama does not care.

Who thinks that BJP is clean? Has anyone heard abt the scams in Karnataka and other BJP ruled states? There are number of them. CONgress bashers dont want to see this. All political parties are same.

How many MNC products have you boycott in your routine life?
This is what you atleast you can do in your part.

How many people you have educated or have encouraged to follow on what baba says?
"Be the change you want to see in the world" -MKG
It can not happen over night.
Youth is tought to believe "west is best". They keep adopting western cultures (mostly bad). There are many good thing that need to be adopted from western culture but those are untouched.
Parents feel proud when kids talk in English and forgetting own culture/language.

Aam aadmi and youth has forgotten the sacrifices our grandfathers and freedom fighters had made for India's freedom and for their kids future which they are enjoying now. It may be too late when they will realize this fact. Or the coming generations will pay for it.
