More than a 1000 people have gathered at Coimbatore to support Isha Foundation’s stand for a corruption-free India. The event began with the Tamil Nadu State Anthem which was followed by other patriotic songs.
Sounds of Isha then came on stage and got everybody into foot-tapping mode with some rollicking numbers. Also at the event were the Isha Samskriti kids, who gave a Kalaripayattu demo which awed everybody with its – yes you guessed it – awesomeness.
A few of the VIPs at the event including Vijayanand, Founder and President of Fifth pillar, Rajkumar, and Arjun Sampath, President, Hindu Makkal Katchi, gave inspiring speeches and spoke out against corruption. Vijayanand, Founder and President of Fifth pillar and Rajkumar have both been fasting since the 19th in a show of support for Anna Hazare. They have also been motivating others to take an oath "I will not bribe, I will not take a bribe, I will not let others bribe." Bravo!
