Coffee for a Cause | Anna Hazare and the Cause for Peaceful Revolution

Coffee culture has has played a vital role through the ages in facilitating revolutions.  It was at a coffeehouse that the stirrings of the French Revolution began.  Further back Arab rulers imposed a ban on the consumption of coffee for fear of its association with democratic ideals.

Today's youth have taken on to the cause of the anti-corruption movement spearheaded by Anna Hazare.  On social networking sites, at cafes or at home huddled over cups of coffee they contemplate and discuss the deeper meaning and relevance of this particular cause at this juncture in our country's history before taking to the streets, united in their resolve.

Here's to Team Anna!
