I respect a lot of people for their entrepreneurial talents. Kamal R Khan and Anna Hazare would be my two most favorite unconventional entrepreneurs. No don’t get me wrong, this is not going to be a satirical article. I am just quoting facts. These two gentlemen have carved industries of their own.
Kamal R Khan better known as KRK is a nobody. He made a stupid flick called Deshdrohi some years back. He looks like a crushed Bisleri bottle. He is no intellectual, in fact he can’t even communicate properly. But he is a celebrity. He cuts ribbons of spas and saloons. People almost certainly pay him for ads and promotions on social media. And all of this happened because he recognized his flair of cheap humor, cussing for no reasons and taking digs at stalwarts. He found a way of staying in news. And look at him now. He has a twitter handle followed by thousands (who hurl abuses at him but hey that’s his business model) and a YouTube channel on which he reviews movies. The movie reviews are shared by thousands of people purely for their ‘cheap humor’ value.
And then we have Shri Anna Hazare, the big daddy of all unconventional entrepreneurs. He is the founder of the I-don’t-know-how-many-billion-dollars Anshan industry. Shri Anna Hazare has been protesting against every conceivable object under the sun since time immemorial. Most of us remember how he famously shook the foundations of the Congress regime when he went on a 13 day hunger strike against the corrupt UPA machinery. Since then Anna Hazare has made “Anshan” his biggest USP. Such was Anna ji’s modus operandi that he sent old and established Anshan-kaaris like Medha Patkar into self-introspection mode.
Revered Gandhian Social activist Anna Hazare will stage a sit-in protest at Rajpath in New Delhi on January 30 to press for his demand of country-wide Jan Lokpal Bill. Anna’s shot to fame was his campaign against graft during Congress regime, will this time be launching the protest against the Modi government. His campaign against Congress gave us Arvind Kejriwal who sided with Congress in his stint as CM Delhi.
Not very Long Back Anna Hazare ji protested against OROP which was about to be passed and the Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar maintained “It’s an inter-departmental issue. As far as the Defence Ministry is concerned, our work is almost over. This is taking time but I can say that there will be a good news soon”. Also, Minister of State for Defence Rao Inderjit Singh maintained that the NDA government will certainly implement ‘one rank, one pension’ scheme and Prime Minister Narendra Modi will announce it at an appropriate occasion.
Anna Hazare is currently a man out of job and limelight who wants the Government to respond to pressure tactics. Does he want to hold the government on a gunpoint. He wants Modi to show the green signal to a setup without validating all technicalities of it? Mr. Anna Hazare want Modi to shun all governmental procedures to appease an Anashan-kaari.
Even if Mr. Anna Hazare wants to hold Modi Government on Gunpoint on any issue, his attempts will be futile because we have Modi in center and not Manmohan Singh and the former commands the trust of the nation which was not the case with latter. Mr. Hazare should surrender to the realities that we are not the same frustrated nation anymore. There are some issues, there are some problems but which country doesn’t have problems.
And the nation hasn’t forgotten that last time when Anna Hazare ji churned the cosmic ocean of Kraanti with his Anshan Rope, Kejriwal came out!
