The inspiration: Swami Vivekananda

Anna Hazare was inspired by Swami Vivekananda, a revolutionary saint of India, who told that the ultimate motive of human life should be service to humanity. Swami Vivekananda became instrumental for awakening Indian youth in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Striving for the betterment of common people is equivalent to offering a prayer to the God, according to Swami Vivekanand.

He realized the truth even at his early age and decided to devote his life for the service of mankind. Since then he has been serving tirelessly for the betterment of Indian people.

Anna Hazare sat ten times for "Anashana" (Fast), a Gandhian tool for movements against governments, and got success every time.
