Salute to the revolutionary of my generation

Thank you for waking up our youth. Thank you for instilling faith in our system. At least we now know how to 'Walk the talk' in politics. We now know that if there is a will, there definitely is a way. Even if half of the people do not agree with what you say and do, be proud that your actions have definitely stirred the thoughts of many a sleeping youth who didn't even bat an eyelid when the Coalgate and 3G Scams took their turns in the newspapers. Your revolutionary ideas have truely brought many a BJP and Congress leaders out of their shells, and I bet even the most high profile corrupt politicians would have started counting their eggs.
Even if people are more interested in making fun of your ideas and mocking your government's suo-moto decisions, be proud that many of these people never even had a political outlook towards anything that happened around them before. Even if these people support the BJP or the Congress, you have woken up souls from every echelon of the society and ignited a political spark in them. 
We have a choice now. A choice for the righteous path. A choice for a cleaner path. There is a glimmer of hope for the people who know how to think rationally and react. There is a hope that our society can be cleansed. There is a hope for the common man. Thank you for everything, Arvind. Some call you a revolutionary. Well , I second them.
A revolution is on. A revolution in which leaders are taking routes which were traversed never before. The ruling class habituated with the 'chaltha hai' attitude are really getting uneasy. Bitter talk is on. Paid news channels and media are roaring. Every party is taking counter measures. But, the best of it, there is a sense of something actually 'happening'. Yes. Isn't that what we always wanted ? How many times have we cried foul : 'yahan kuch nahi hota'... Thank you Arvind for taking the onus and becoming a role model for generations to come... 
An apt quote for you from Rang De Basanti :
"Zindagi jeene k do hi tarike hote hai ... ek jo ho raha hai hone do, bardaasht karte jao ... ya phir jimmedari uthao use badalneki".....
