Irrespective of the meaning of “social worker”, whose numbers were on the rise lately, anti-corruption crusader and veteran social worker Anna Hazare said: “Voluntarism and willingness to sacrifice as against professionalism, should be the defining hallmark of a social worker.”

Anna, as he is fondly called by his admirers, told this to a group of students from the Department of Social Service at the Rani Channamma University, Belgaum during a meeting with him at his native Ralegan Siddhi of Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra recently. The students met Anna as part of their study tour.
