V-Day Notice... ;)
I guess all of you would be aware of this by now... There is a campaign on, a la Gandhigiri style! To know more, go here -
As quoted from the page -
The Pink Chaddi Campaign kicked off on 5 February 2009 to oppose the Sri Ram Sena. The campaign is growing exponentially (4,500 at this point in the life of our Consortium of Pub-going, Loose and Forward Women) and that is not surprising. Most women in this country have enough curbs on their lives without a whole new franchise cashing in with their bully-boy tactics. Of course, a lot of men have joined the group as well.
Facebookers can join the campaign at -
For right now, ask not what Dr VS Acharya, Home Minister of Karnataka can do for you. Ask what you can do for him. Here is his blog. Send him some love.
Good day, folks. ;) Love is in the air... Oooh la la! ;D
After all, they are ruining my weekend Bangalore trip!!! :-X
P.S: I shud get credits for directing u to this one :P :P
@Richa - ;D
Are you suggesting then to put a curb on it ??? One more stat .. of the aids affected population in India what % are in the rural areas , which btw are still conservative ?? It might or might not surprise you.. but i often use this to show that the real issues here are about the perversity of one's will. Now as a part of a society you cannot be free . you are bound by rules .. but at the same time there are a limit to these rules sir .. something like alcohol and it's ill effects can't be linked to pubs .. not the entirely infact not even majorly .. you trying to say liquor poisoning deaths are a new phenomenon or the illnesses it causes ???
However the agitation here is about why do you want to dictate what culture is to me .. ? why impose it on me ?? culture is one of those few things in life which has a value only if followed by will and heart not a stick ...
I mean i go to pubs once or maybe twice a month .. big deal man .. I am not a drunkard nor are the other people who go out with me .. those who have to go down that path of misery will ... ban or no ban
secondly .. dont you think you are generalising a lot by saying these ppl dn give a damn .. i mean do you know these 4500 people .. ?
thirdly ppl do protest and express there views only this thing is being noticed because media is sensationalising it .. in a country of billion ppl a=nd 60+% of the population below 35 4500 is nothing not even a drop... so really when ppl protest for other things the media does find it worth sensationalising ..
lets not make the mistake of formulating generalised opinions on people ..
Our culture for one has been one which has constatly changed .. that has been its trademark .. dont force it .. i am nt against my culture .. anyway we are digressinh on to a wole new issue .. as long as we both agree that mob'ism is wrong we are done here .. we will take up culture and stuff .. why dont we have a post from you .. that would make it better .. and i have alredy postd my views on culture a jagruti .. you cud go thru it ..
:) enjoyed the discussion though
