The Better India

written by Dhimant Parekh on Monday, November 19, 2007

Update: The play and the protest got some coverage in this article of The Hindu. Thanks to Arka for pointing this out.


Those were the messages we tried to convey via some performances on a hot Bangalore afternoon yesterday.
At around 3:00 pm we started our first performance at the M G Road - Cubbon Park junction. Some motorists at the signal stopped a while to look at us before the honks from other traffic members eased them on their way. Some of the casual passers-by seemed amused and some nodded their head in approval. We continued with our stuff till about 4:00 pm. Here are the pictures of the performance:

That's DhiOnlyOne (in the above picture) on the left holding a small percussion instrument. And nope, I did not hurt the dude over whom I had my feet.

Some more volunteers here:

Another performance (a solo one):

I am not quite sure how much of an impact this event had. Maybe some people on their shopping stint went home later and asked "What or Who exactly is Nandigram?".
If that happened, it was probably worth the few hours we spent.

Enjoy the day, ladies and gentlemen.
