Freedom fighter appeals youths to emulate Hazare

The occasion was State-level inter-collegiate cultural programme organised by Vishwamanava Vidyarthi Yuva Vedike.

Doreswamy Iyengar said corruption has reached its peak as a generation had remained in deep slumber. Drawing an analogy with mythology, he said-  Lanka saw its annihilation as one Kumbakarna slept and now there are more such kumbarkarnas helping corruption spread its tentacles in an alarming way.

Amid these developments, Anna Hazare has emerged as a ray of hope and has been instrumental in fighting for the implementation of Jan Lokpal Bill. The Anna’s fast against the centre demanding for the implementation of the Bill can well be understood as second major struggle after Independence Day. It’s high time the centre heeds demand and introduces the Bill.

Cultural programmes were the show stoper what with the students dressed as mother teresa, beggar, specially abled and also soldier, besides clay made dolls hogging the limelight. It was also the time for youths- boys and girls alike to mock at their friends adding to the pulsating mood.

If that was the fever inside the auditorium, the reception was dotted with colourful rangolis as part of the programme.

According to the organisers around 2,000 students from various parts of the State had converged at the venue to savour the day.
