An Insignificant Man

Invited

Arvind Kejriwal, a North Indian tax officer, decides to dedicate himself to combating widespread corruption in national politics. It’s common knowledge that his country is living in a “scam raj,” where politicians of all parties consider themselves above the law, helping themselves shamelessly to oceans of cash with no accountability. Established parties refuse to enact measures curbing their own greed, but Arvind—precise, calm, and relentless—raises his voice against corruption and rallies citizens to join in participatory democracy. Can honesty win elections? Can one man with a dream of fairness in government win victory amid the muddy streams of backdoor politics? Arvind’s anticorruption passion is inspiring and demonstrates how hard work and relentless campaigning can dislodge entrenched, tacitly sanctioned evil. A lesson for us all?  LB
