The Charismatic Baba Ramdev

Posted on: August 9, 2012

So the first day of Baba Ramdev’s fast against corruption is over. The supporters have returned to Ramlila Maidan proving Baba Ramdev’s charisma as a crowd puller. Although the media wants to downplay this huge mass support to Baba, there is no doubting the fact  that Baba Ramdev has done what Anna Hazare couldn’t do in the recent past.

The fight against corruption is alive and kicking. People are for the corruption free India and they are ready to support a leader who is able to articulate his vision for the corruption free India by leading the fight from the front.

The phenomenal support to Baba Ramdev is the result of his clear cut approach to the cause. He has conveyed time and again that he is against the menace of the black money and corruption. His fight is not against any political party or politicians for that matter. He wants a corruption free nation. And he is ready to wait and watch the effect of his campaign over a period of time as such systemic rot cannot be eradicated overnight.

This is precisely what has won the hearts of people and they have decided to support Baba Ramdev hoping he is the harbinger of good times. Poor Anna Hazare threw the advantage by heeding to the ill advice and flip flops on the core issues of the campaign. What further damaged the credibility of Anna’s campaign was constant infighting amongst team members for the one upmanship. Add all this to a thorough dilution of the cause for which it claimed to fight and one gets the sense of the fading support for Team Anna.

Coming back to Baba Ramdev, this time around he has bounced back with a sting in his tail. Once bitten twice shy. He has done his home-work. He appears determined not to over attack and target any individual for there are no permanent enemies. The government cannot take it easy now. Again the tables have turned. The rules of the games have changed overnight. 

Thank you Baba Ramdev for infusing fresh lease of life in the fight against the corruption and black money. You are indeed the real hero the nation so desperately seeks.
