From an activist to CM - Story of an AAM AADMI

An IIT-trained mechanical engineer, Kejriwal served the Indian Revenue Service (IRS) in 1995, and resigned  after five years there. You would always expect an IIT-ian to get a lucrative job and be satisfied with it for lifetime. Perhaps he had some other plans.
He wanted a CHANGE. A change in the way the things were.  An urge to do something for the society. If money was of prime importance to him he would not leave his job (seriously who would do this!).

He played an important in bringing RTI, which proved beneficiary for the mass. His activities became famous  in Delhi as well as across the country. It was  Anna Hazare's  campaign which brought Arvind in limelight.












He decided to enter politics - formed 'AAP - Aam Aadmi Party'. Contested Delhi Assembly elections and registered a thumping victory. AAP couldn't get the majority and curiosity spread whether he would sit in the opposition or accept support. Opposition parties stated AK as  a Congress Agent, a liar, a dictator. Despite all this he decided to accept support, enter the dirt with an aim to sweep it away from his broom (as depicted in his party symbol).

Whether he is successful in his stint in politics is something to watch out for,  too early to say that. One thing is for sure, he has the courage to stand , to rebel. The spirit, the confidence he shows is mammoth. I was always under the influence that such things happen in movies only, but he actually proves it wrong. Nobody knows what future brings, but whatever it is, he made other political parties realize that common man cannot be taken for granted, it's high time these political parties should  think beyond their greed of seats. Its a wake up call for them.


Of course it will not be a man show, he will need a lot of support from his party members at all times if he wants to do something that brings about revolution and eliminate corruption. Hope the results are positive and Kejriwal along with his party will bring about the change as promised by them.
