Yesterday I was trying to explain Abhi on the benefits of being literate and learning alphabets. He generally doesn't focus much to learn alphabet. so I was explaining him that If you know how to read and write A, B,C etc you will be able to play many games on laptop and read everything on your own. He seems convinced. He is so confident that he immediately asked, so will you buy another laptop for yourself? He is so inquisitive that at times it becomes so irritating. an year before I think, when I told him, the way you are irritating me, I am able to see stars in day light, his immediate question was "where are they NANNA ("daddy")" and started looking up at the sky. Managing and mentoring kids is highly sophisticated job and most of us fail miserably in it. But the experience gained is worth.

Anna Hazare has accepted that it is not DONE yet, and it is done only when the "Lokpal" bill comes into force. Making changes to constitution or creating a framework/scheme to address corruption and bringing in everyone into the new framework so that everyone is accountable is just a baby step towards this complex issue called "Corruption". Essentially because we are so much wired into it. Almost everyone is part of this anomaly (corruption).

While running the government, they are always in need of making some compromise or the other. Alternatively everyone in INDIA should stop bribing
