Agnivesh Quits Team Anna, As BJP Comes Onside

Swami Agnivesh appears to be departing Anna Hazare's team of advisors, even as BJP comes out more strongly in favour of Hazare's Lokpal bill.

Some of the madness in the Maidan prompted the following short story:
A man took his two young sons to Ramlila Maidan in support of Hazare. He got their heads shaved, asked them to wear plain round glasses in metal frames, and pasted a grey moustache on each of their upper lips. He also put a sacred thread on their shoulders, and asked them to wear only loin cloths and no upper cloth, and to carry a stick. The two children were a great hit at the Maidan. They were patted on their heads by Hazare the Great himself, and hugged by Kiran Bedi and Swami Agnivesh.
The kids were so fascinated by the costume they wanted to wear that daily to their school. The teachers would not let them. Now the two kids are on "fast unto death" (eat only pizza and hamburgers) for getting permission to wear their costumes to school.
All the kids in the school are supporting them and egging them on to continue their righteous struggle. The pupils also want that the uniform of the school should be like the costume worn by the two heroes, and that it should be enforced on both boys and girls. They are further demanding that all the teachers, both male and female, should get their heads shaved, wear a moustache, etc, and also conform to the same new dress code.
