Anna weak but in good spirits

New Delhi: He is in good spirits but looks
weak after fasting for 12 days at the age of 74.
Anna Hazare is recovering well in a largish room on the
13th floor of Gurgaon-based Medanta Medicity hospital whose
Chairman and Managing-Director Naresh Trehan was giving the
nation live updates about the Gandhian`s health while he was
fasting at the sprawling Ramlila Grounds till Sunday morning.
Trehan and other doctors continue to monitor him
closely and hope to release him from the hospital later this
Sitting up in his bed, Hazare receives a bouquet and a
"get well soon" card from someone for whom he had created a
crisis a few days ago -- Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
On day three of his stay in the hospital, some of
Anna`s ssociates are allowed in his room. Kiran Bedi, using
her cellphone, sits in a sofa. Arvind Kejriwal is standing
next to Hazare`s bed and Manish Sisodia has just brought-in
the Prime Minister`s bouquet.
"How are you feeling Annaji," asks a PTI reporter.
"I am OK," says the Gandhian in a feeble voice
gesticulating his hand to indicate so.
Admitted in `In-Patient Department (IPD)`, the
Gandhian wearing `dark sea-green` patient`s uniform is most of
the time using hand gestures to communicate.
Outside the hospital, a large battery of mediapersons,
both print as well as electronic, were present so that not to
miss any opportunity to get a glimpse or an update of Hazare.
However, heavy security has been deployed in and around
the Hospital entry points to prevent any intrusion, either by
media or supporters.
Noting that Hazare was "doing well and is stable", the
doctor attending to him, Yatin Mehta, said he walked for
sometime in his room today.
