Anna Hazare
New Delhi, Aug 19: 74-year-old Anna Hazare, who has been observing his fast-unto-death protest for Jan Lokpal bill since Aug 16, shocked and surprised the nation when he ran like a "young man" at Raj Ghat. In an attempt to avoid the heavy rains in Delhi, Anna on Friday Aug 19 ran leaving all supports and police officials behind.

After medical check up, doctors informed that Anna Hazare's health suggest that he lost 3 kgs in three days and his blood pressure stands at 160/88.

Anna Hazare's close aide - Kiran Bedi earlier on Thursday released a video of the Gandhian crusader from Tihar jail claiming that he can join any protest rally despite observing fast for three days.

Anna Hazare's protest received nation-wide support after thousands supporters gathered to accompany Anna Hazare in his open-truck motorcade from Tihar jail to Ramlila Maidan.
