The Atlas Shrugged Moment

"If you saw Atlas, the giant who holds the world on his shoulders, if you saw that he stood, blood running down his chest, his knees buckling, his arms trembling but still trying to hold the world aloft with the last of his strength, and the greater his effort the heavier the world bore down upon his shoulders - What would you tell him?"
I…don't know. What…could he do? What would you tell him?"
To shrug."

The Anna Hazare movement can draw many analogies with this magnum opus of Ayn Rand. A saint chose to lead from the front and beseeched the Atlases who hold the pillars of democracy on their shoulders to SHRUG....and they shrugged too........He came out as John Galt of this movement and the result is evident.......

Nobody is asking now...."WHO IS JOHN GALT"!!!!!!.....
