Anna Hazare
Ralegan Siddhi, Aug 20: Gandhian crusader Anna Hazare's small village Ralegan Siddhi has now turned out to be a tourist hot spot with guided tours. This model village in Maharashtra has been witnessing tourists and outsiders dropping in just to have a look at Anna, the hero's residence.

Mahesh Nimbalkar and his family travelled 150 km to see Anna's little 8x10 room in Yadavbaba Temple. But, this isn't the end. In fact, tourists, hailing from abroad are flocking in this small Indian village. Maggie and Rachel have come all the way from UK to visit the icon's small village.

And the village has made sure that for all those visiting, their energy and enthusiasm is on full display.

With the kind of response the movement has got, one wonders if tourists will flock-in in large numbers to have their chance to peek at the man who's become a national icon when he returns to his village.
