Something to think about...

"Deep inside the forest in a tribal village, when 500 policemen surround and burn your village and there is no TV camera, you can't go on a hunger-strike. You can only fight back. In any case, can the hungry go on a hunger-strike? What does a hunger strike mean in a country where 49 per cent children are malnourished and perennially hungry?"

an excerpt from Arundhati Roy's article that addresses the issue of the Jan Lokpal Bill. You can read the article here.
