What we attract seems to be brought unto us via waves of thought then into physical manifestation. Adjusting our magnet could be a good thing to do. Choosing to do so gives aid to do so.

There is so much similarity between Farmers protest and Jan Lokpal agitation. Some leaders are same, the method is similar. Jan Lokpal movement turned out to be bogus with its leaders planted by Govt only in people. The benefit of Janlokpal agitation was reaped by only its leaders who enjoy all luxury now and the protesters felt ditched only by them. Protesting farmers should keep an eye on its leaders as who they meet in private.
