Anna Hazare's 5 vichar for youth

First of all and with utmost respect - Congratulations to Anna Hazare. Hats off to your method of protesting!

Anna Hazare's 12 day long fast came to an end at around 10:15 this morning. I was at our usual protest spot, the RBI square, Nagpur.
Scores of people were celebrating the end of Anna's fast
Today in the morning after ending his fast Anna said that "सिर्फ टोपी पहन ने से अण्णा नाही बन जाते" (you don't become an Anna Hazare if you wear his cap). Not many youth who are protesting with Annaji pay attention to what important he says. He says that if anybody wants to become like him has to follow 5 easy fundamentals of life. And he says this is especially for the youth of India (who blindly follow the west everytime).

His vichars are:
शुद्ध विचार (Shuddha Vichar) - Pure Thoughts
Our thoughts should be shuddha, i.e. pure. We should think pure. By pure I guess Annaji means that we should not think bad about others.

शुद्ध आचरण (Shuddha Aacharan) - Pure Karma
Our work or karma should be pure, it should be always good.

निष्कलंक जीवन (Nishkalank Jeevan) - Unblemished Life
We should not have a blemish of a bad past deed on our life. We should lead a life doing good things. One must have a good character.

त्याग (Tyaag) - Sacrifice
If we want to achieve something, we ought to sacrifice something (be it for a while although). Kuch paane k liye kuch khona padta hai.

अपमान सहने की शक्ति (Apaman sahne ki shakti) - Power to face insult
We must have the power to gulp down insult. If we gulp down insult we have the power to face anything, he says.

So these are the five fundamentals one must follow in life according to Anna Hazare.
I wrote this post because I saw many youth 'enjoying' in the name of protest. It hurts me when I see young boys performing stunts on their bikes, hooliganism, men staring at girls, etc. Even on the Independence Day many young people do stuff which is unacceptable.

Do you feel good when people say, "dekho aaj kal k nav javan" ?
