The anti-corruption agitation in India, started of with a silent protest. A hunger strike from Anna Hazare . He is seen as the soft side of the protest. Which more or less does not harm anyone. Even though the Gandhian style protest paid off.
Later he was joined by Baba Ram Dev who too to some extend started as a peaceful protester. However the Government, over reacted and showed signs of violence. This has changed the whole paradigm now.
Baba with this media attention and much following have threatened to be more of a hardliner now. This may also be called as cocktail of Bhakti Movement and 1857 revolt, this might be an overstatement of comparison but the bottom seems to be the same.
Whatever it might be e are very close to have a political and a social turmoil, and for sure something good would come out of it. Till then lets keep our fingers crossed.
