"Some in the group were elderly and haven't eaten anything for hours. Small gestures like these will keep the morale high," said Geeta, one of the volunteers.

"Homework ab raat ko karenge. Abhi yahaan Anna ko humari zarurat hai (We will do our homework at night. Right now, Anna needs us)," said Pushpit, a 12-year-old who ran back and forth to his house to fill empty bottles.
"Kyunki hum apne desh ko bhrashtachaar se mukt karaana chahte hai aur Anna Hazare ek aam aadmi hai, hum unki aawaaz ko sarkar tak pahauchana chahte hai," read a note written by the kids (because we want our country to be free of corruption. Anna is a common man and we want that his dissent be heard by the government).
The kids also claimed that they wanted to do their bit in serving Anna in his campaign and be "put to work".
"We want to help. We want to meet Anna. We want to join the protests but are on the other side of the gate. So please tell us what we can do," asked a keen 13-year-old Himanshu.
"We all want to do something too. He should not be in jail. We want to participate because he is a good person and fighting for our rights," said two other kids.
"On TV we heard the protesters saying "Yeh andar ki baat hai, police Anna ke saath hai (This is a secret, the police supports Anna) We are also with Anna. And we will be here on Thursday as well," said other children.
