Its time for some brainstorming; to stop for awhile and ponder.
What we are doing is good – a welcome start after shaking off the dust of laziness and inaction.
There is no doubt about it.
If you’ve read my last post, you’ll find that I’d sought time to move VOICES FOR DAMINI from online to offline.
Allwin Bright, friend and fellow blogger and I, had a conversation tonight via phone and chat about this. We brainstormed.
It turned out it is tougher than we thought. We are not embarrassed. Not a bit. We tried. Maybe our young minds are overwhelmed by the proposition of social change in a nation of 1.2 billion and some more.
The best I can do is be honest about it. Yes, we don’t know what’s next. We are asking for your submissions; the response is tremendous. That’s great.
The hurdles are many. Personally I have my exams in two months time. So that’s a factor. When Allwin and I failed to find answers we decided to ask you. It was your movement all along. VOICES FOR DAMINI is what it is just because of you.
So we forward all the tough questions to you so that we can atleast sleep well.
What is our outreach? How many people are we reaching? And, most importantly, what do we want to achieve?
A societal change or a political change?
Is it even possible through a humble blog? The media is so partial they refused to cover a prayer meet for the deceased girl. They said they would come if it was a protest and there were slogans.
We have lost hope. And direction. We need help.
Kindly don’t just criticise but also suggest ways to improve.
We are counting on you.
P.S. : keep the submissions coming. Atleast that’s our forte. Let’s not lose that.
