On the 11th day of his fast, Anna Hazare, 74, looked visibly frail and did not address his supporters at all at the Ramlila Ground on Friday.
He appeared to need to stand up and lie down, a clear sign of physical weakness. “It is but natural for a 74-year-old man who has not eaten anything for 11 days to feel weak. We have been monitoring his condition constantly and his test reports show he is stable,” said Dr RR Kasliwal, senior cardiologist at Medanta, who treats Hazare’s mild hypertension. Hazare’s heart rate is fluctuating between 90 and 94, the normal being 72-75. HTC
