Anna Hazare's fast has ended!

Anna Hazare has ended his fast!  I want to run out into the street and shout for joy!  He, Arvind Kejriwal, and many others (actually all the people of India!) have achieved a historic victory for India by getting the Jan Lockpal bill passed unanimously through parliament.  Wow!  The whole country rose up in disgust and frustration against the rampant corruption literally running India.  It was wonderful to watch.  Anna Hazare fasted in order to get the government ministers to hear the people.  It kept the pressure on.  He has fasted twice; this time for 13 days.  It was such a relief to watch him end his fast.  The work will now begin on ending corruption here.
