Anna Hazare
Ahmedabad, Aug 17: Anna's fight against corruption has not only won accolades among adults but even the kids are following his suite and are fasting in Gujarat for a corruption-free nation.

12-year-old Pratham Joshi began his fast outside Town Hall in Ahmedabad, while Kunjal Makwana started fasting with other supporters in Isnapur, said an article by DNA.

“I am fasting today so that when I grow up, corruption should not affect us. I hope my generation can live with freedom from corruption," said Joshi who had fasted for two days earlier when Anna protested at Jantar Mantar.

The boy whose father is an activist said that despite his father being one of the crusaders, he never forced him to go on a fast.

“I have seen corruption affecting us in so many ways. If I fast I believe I can help eradicate corruption in the years to come," said Pratham, who wishes to become a pilot.

For 11-year-old Kunjal, she wanted to join the campaign after she heard Anna's speech in Annshan (fast).

“She asked me about the meaning of corruption. When I explained the issue to her, she said we should support Anna and join the protest," said Kunjal's father, Dilip.

“I want to be a part of the movement. I want to support Anna in any way I can," said Kunjal, who studies at Sardar Patel School in class 7.
