Winds of Change in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen

By Manuwant Choudhary

Winds of change sweep the middle started with Tunisia..moves to Egypt and perhaps even protests can be seen in Yemen.

The United States under George Bush wanted to export democracy to the Middle East but what we now witness is that the Americans don't know where to look and whom to support - an ally `dictator' or the freedom loving people of Egypt.

Egypts President Hosni Mubarak has dismissed his government but like all dictators he does not yet see the writing on the wall and talks about protecting his people.

The people want him to go.

The people want a better Egypt.

They want freedom.

This revolution is not Islamic. It is for freedom.

Thats why the Egyptian government blocks twitter and facebook.

Democracy and freedom will come to that region as you can see the courage with which the youth face police brickbats and teargas and even armoured vehicles don't scare them anymore.

They have nothing to lose, except their chains.

Will this also spread to India?

Well, India could also see some agitations as corruption and the governments role in dealing with it comes under a cloud.

India's Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and his government need to act fast to address growing concerns if they want a stable and prosperous India.

It just takes an incident to push a country towards chaos or freedom, whicever you may choose to call it.
