Well Done Anna The Anna Hazare-led civil society movement in India has stirred the nation and people from all walks of life are flocking protest sites to show their solidarity with the Gandhian.

The call of a strong anti-corruption law has struck a magic chord as people from all strata of the society has been victims of corrupt and inefficient politicians and officials who are popularly called ‘netas’ and ‘babus’.

In India, the level of corruption can be seen at all levels. The common citizens have to pay for almost all government schemes which should otherwise be free. A citizen has to ‘grease’ the palms of a government office clerk to get the files flowing and this goes on up to the higher level. The bigger the project the bigger is the share of the officials.

I’m reminded of Shyam Benegal film starring Boman Irani called “Well Done, Abba” wherein the simple village folks use the Right to Information Act to get back their “stolen wells”. The dark comedy is a brilliant film for every right thinking individual irrespective of nationalities, caste or creed. This realist film released in 2010 looks like a prologue of Anna’s fast to get back for the citizens their rights which have been stolen and trampled upon by the official machinery.

Go on Anna, so that we may finally say “Well Done, Anna!”

Here’s a video trailer of Well Done, Abba
