Voice Your Views To Millions Through The Media

We can feel the wrath against certain sections of the media that have reported the terror attacks at TAJ live which inturn couldve resulted in the terrorists receiving information, and further sabotaging the efforts. But besides criticism we need to understand that they are a very important tool to dispense information.
Just a few minutes ago, I got a call from a leading news channel who wanted to give mumbai a platform to speak. If you want to air your views. Just leave a comment here with your email. You could also send me an sms at +91 9833100340.

(The media professional has requested me to not share the name of the TV channel as they are still in the planning stage)

hi Harish,
I see a lot of people say that we should remain united in the face of this terror, but nobody seems to have suggested HOW.

i have a small suggestion...i think we should make it a practice to play the national anthem at a fixed time twice daily across the country- in public places, schools, parks theatres, hospitals, schools, offices and hopefully we will steep the feeling of patriotism deep within our souls.

Also the need to make an effort to clean up the city and stop being litter-bugs, (even educated people travelling by 1st class are litter-bugs). We must take a pride in our own city and country, take pains to clean up not only the system but also the roads.

Remember it is OUR country!!!

THERE IS A CERTIAN ACT (SORY CAN'T RECALL) IN OUR CONSITUTION WHICH WAS IMPLIED DURING BRITISH RAJ OF INDIA WHICH KIND OF HANDICAPS INDIAN POLICE INTO THE HANDS OF THE POLITICAL LEADERS.

THE POLITICAL LEADERS DON,T WANT TO AMEND IT AS THEY WANT POLICEMEN TO BE THEIR PUPPETS.

IT WAS MENTIONED IN THE TIMES OF INDIA COLUMN OF " THE TIMES OF IDEAS OR EDITORIAL SECTION " DURING THIS YEAR'S EDITION. THE COLUMNIST HAD SUGGESTED TO AMEND THIS ACT IN A WAY THAT IT BENEFITS INDIAN POLICE.

I REMEMBER READING THIS COLUMN. IF WE INDIAN NETIZENS CAN FIND OUT ABOUT THIS ACT. WE CAN TAKE A SMALL STEP TOWARDS REVOLUTION.

WE CAN TAKE THIS ACT ISSUE TO HONEST PEOPLE LIKE JULIE RIBERO,ALYQUE PADMASEE & OTHERS WHO HAD RAISEN THEIR VOICES AGAINST THIS SO CALLED BANDHS CALLED BY POLITICAL PARTIES & OF COURSE ( WE INDIANS ARE THERE TOO).

AFTER THIS MASSACRE, EVERYBODY HAS TALKEN ABOUT COMMON MAN. BUT WHAT ABOUT THE POLICE THEY ARE HUMAN BEINGS TOO. THERE SALARIES ARE SHAMEFUL. THEIR JOB SATISFACTION BETTER NOT MENTIONED. THEIR TRANSPARENT JOBS MAKES THEM VULNERABLE TO BE CALLED CORRUPT AS IT AFFECTS THE SYSTEM DIRECTLY.

THEIR SALARIES SHOULD BE MADE A ISSUE TOO.

( I HAV SUMMARIZED IT. SO THAT YOU CAN READ. BUT PLZ DON'T UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF THIS ACT)

@Dr. Bijal,

Yes, your suggestion is beautiful. And would be wonderful if implimented and followed religiously. (more religiosly than any religon)I will try and network with my BlogDost Shobhaa De and seek her advise in taking this forward. Will def keep you updated... Btw Bijal, have you received any emails? or are still people in a state of absolute denial that they are suffering from fear psychosis???

I am thinking of an event where we could invite people and address them. BEcause individual people dont seem to be taking the initiative. Will update you of the same.

Yes, It is our country.


@ Aniket

I shall not underestimate the power of the act. I have noticed one thing about the public , you know aniket. There is togetherness when there is criticism, but when it comes to appreciate the efforts of people... there are just a few lone voices. Its shameful that it takes a calamity of this enourmous nature for us to realize the lives and sacrifices of people who guard us. I salute the Bombay Police. Will scout around for this act. Thanks for letting me know.
