Anna Hazare's fast on the Jan Lokpal Bill has touched a chord in the people – the outpouring of support that has come from all corners of the country and amongst different sections is a testament to this.

It is this helplessness that is building up the anger which is now being reflected in the wide support that Anna Hazare's fast has received.
