Anna: Flog The Losers

Hazare wants drinkers flogged.  And they've apparently done it in his village - tied  people to electric poles and administered 'light' beatings.  He mentions it in the NDTV interview (click here).

One is not sure what his definition of drinkers is, but one starts to fear for some loved ones in the near and extended family.  Then the sheepish and slightly blameless face of our cleaning lady's husband comes to mind, in particular.  Not safe times these.  One pictures streets with houses spilling forth the afflicted in ones and twos, there to be flogged in public tied to the nearby electric poles.

Anna should have stayed in Ralegan Siddhi.
