Hazare supporters

Supporters of hunger-striking activist Anna Hazare grab pamphlets explaining the anti corruption bill "Jan Lokpal Bill" at a public rally in support of Hazare at his village in Ralegan Siddhi, some 240 kms east of Mumbai on August 22, 2011. Hazare, the hunger striker whose protest against corruption has galvanised millions of Indians, sounded a note of defiance after government calls for dialogue. Hazare, who has not eaten since August 16, is fasting at an open-air venue in New Delhi in front of tens of thousands of noisy supporters who back his demands for an end to the culture of corruption among Indian officials.
