A laptop on her shoulder, dishevelled hair and tired eyes, thirty-two-year-old Richa Sharma, a banker, joined hundred others at Jantar Mantar on Friday.

Sharma was among the many office goers who are lending their support to Anna Hazare. Sharma has little idea about the nitty-gritty of the Bill, which is at the centre of this huge people's movement.

"But I know it is against corruption and it is time we took some action against it. I came today for the first time but will come again tomorrow," she said.

It has been four days since Laxmi Mattel has had a proper meal. "I have been just having milk. I truly believe in the cause that Anna Hazare is fighting for and I will show my support till the end," said Mattel an employee of United Nations Human Rights Council, who has been coming to Jantar Mantar every day after work.

Sunil Dhar, who works in an information technology company, came with his five-year-old son Rudraksh. "I got my son to see what it means to fight for a cause and how it is done. It is a historic occasion," said Dhar.

Others like Mohini Sahni, a nursery teacher, have skipped work for the past two days. "The only thing we can do is show our support for Hazareji who is fighting for all of us,” she said.
