What began as a humble blogger’s idea is now doing the rounds on social media, has a facebook page, and contributors and well wishers from all around the globe.
Hence, we must not despair. Never underestimate the power of One.
We must continuously strive to make VOICES FOR DAMINI more effective. We must remember that soon we have to touch base with the grassroots.
Before I unveil my idea, I have certain requests to contributors and readers.
1. On your wordpress.com blog home page or otherwise, can you make room for the VOICES FOR DAMINI facebook like page. Your blog is read everyday by many people. I need them to know about our work.
2. We need more shares on twitter, facebook, and google
3. Are you well versed in HTML? Can you make one of those badges that’ll read “PROUD CONTRIBUTOR OF VOICES FOR DAMINI”. Then all of you can have one such badge on your blog’s homepage.
If you can’t, can you please spread the word, and check if any of your friends can do it. Please tell her/him that we can’t pay for services. We are a non-profit initiative.
4.. The facebook page has not had any participation so far. People have liked it. But no participation. Please suggest ways to make it active.
Okay that’s all. Now I wish to unveil the next step. Field Work. I wish to form a team of CONTRIBUTORS from Guwahati and we will go to the notorious areas of the city – the bus terminals, the taxi stands, the areas adjacent to the railway station.
Please note that I am in no way suggesting that rape happens only in those places. But it can be a wonderful start.
What will we do there?
On a sunday afternoon we will ask them for half an hour. We will tell them about Delhi’s shame. We will pray for two minutes for the departed soul. Then we will sensitise them. We’ll talk rape. We’ll talk sex. In an uncomplicated manner.
It’s time for some field work, friends.
Please suggest, criticise, add to my idea.
