Anna is the inspiration for this painter from Bihar

There is no doubt that anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare has legions of followers. And they are all contributing their might to his movement for a stronger Jan Lokpal Bill.

While some are fasting along with him, some are protesting in various nooks and crannies of the country, some come with the tricolour in their hands singing patriotic songs, etc. But Mohammed Tabez Alam, a painter from Gaya district in Bihar, has found a unique way to support Hazare's cause.

Ever since Hazare began his fast in Tihar jail on August 16, Alam has been painting canvasses about the Jan Lokpal Bill, Anna Hazare and how the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government 'is trying to subvert his peaceful movement and create hurdles in the passage of the bill,' that many of Hazare's followers believe, is potent enough to weed out corruption from their routine lives.

"Anna is the inspiration of my paintings," says Alam, 35. He is difficult to miss once you are inside the Ramlila Ground, Hazare's battlefield till September 2, by when he has the permission to continue his fast, or 'till the last breath' of his life, as Hazare keeps exhorting to his supporters.
