Hello Want to support Team Anna but balk at the thought of chanting slogans and
brandishing placards? We take a look at some of the unique and popular means used
by Hazare's band of merry men, that you can adopt to show you care.
Activists Kiran Bedi and Arvind Kejriwal struck upon a real goldmine when they
appealed to the masses to dial in and leave a missed call to show their support.
It cost people nothing and there have already been over 6 lakh calls registered.

Ousted IPL chief Lalit Modi had urged many online to wear a Nehru topi and hold up
placards bearing anti-corruption messages at the IPL games. Hidden agenda or
otherwise, his suggestions look like they were taken seriously!
>From a mugshot of Hazare himself to black ribbons, display pictures of supporters
across mediums(including Facebook, Twitter and Gtalk among others) saw a swift
switch to make their support apparent
Going the whole hog(pardon the pun) like Hazare might not be possible for just
about everyone, though many at present are undertaking relay fasts, where a person
observes a fast for a few hours before someone else takes over from them. There
were many observed in several cities at public grounds like Azad Maidan in Mumbai
and Freedom Park in Bangalore in April
Liking pages and joining groups, Facebook users were using the medium as an
important group to mobilize support - from hosting event invitations to live
updates on developments from Jantar Mantar
Celebrity power shone through on the microblogging site where several B-town folk
voiced their opinions and their support for Hazare. Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka
Chopra, Pritish Nandy and Anumpam Kher were only some of these
Like in the Jessica Lall case and 26/11 tributes, protestors in several cities
responded to the clarion call and showed their support through candlelight vigils
Originally a sign of mourning, black armbands to show solidarity made their
presence felt in the April protests. Students and working professionals alike took
to the same like a fish to water
Whether online or offline, petitions calling for the government to accept the
revised draft of the Lokpal bill have mushroomed. A single online petition,
floated by the NGO Avaaz for example, had received over three lakh signatures in
only a few days
