Anti-corruption activist Kiran Bedi waves the Indian tricolour on the first day of Indian activist Anna Hazare's 3 day-long fast in Mumbai on December 27, 2011. The 74-year-old former soldier, Hazare, along with volunteers of his India Against Corruption (IAC) organisation embarks on a fresh hunger strike against a proposed new law to tackle endemic graft. At least 40,000 people a day are expected to attend the three-day fast in the city's northern suburbs, organisers said, even though lawmakers are still debating the planned legislation in parliament. The former army driver's latest high-profile protest comes amid question marks over the integrity of his anti-corruption movement, as well as criticism that he is riding roughshod over the democratic process.
