What you can do about ‘Moral Policing’ rather than moving around ‘Kissing’

Dear “Freedom Fighters”,

A contagious idea named “Kiss of Love” is at large recently. I do not intend to deliver a session on the ‘Elite Indian Culture’ and the religious morals – as rightly said, India has witnessed a darker ages already. But there are a few things you can consider doing rather than going around kissing, and being a prey for a mental illness of someone.

1) Insist the government to form an ‘Anti Moral Policing Cell’

I believe anyone who has fallen prey for the so called Moral Police for “righteous” actions won’t bother the police intervening as long as you haven’t done anything against the laws laid. You may want to consider asking the government for an emergency rescue number through which people could reach the police before things get worse.

2) Form public initiatives to resist ‘Moral Policing’ in your area

As very “energetic and committed” social reformers, you would definitely be able to help the real sufferers by forming an anti-moral-police group at your own area. Try pulling the bullies apart and holding them till the real police arrive.

3) Consider using applications like MindHelix’s Sentinel App if ever you run into trouble

You can get applications like MindHelix’s Sentinel which would trigger an alert within no time if ever you run into trouble. These applications would help you reach to the concern people if you are in a position where reaching out to police by self is not possible.

4) And finally, if you can’t do anything effective about this, please go and continue your serene online protest rather than roam around kissing.




Say ‘No’ to Crackers, At least for Your Next Festival

All I can hear now is deafening noise of crackers all around. And being a person with high ear sensitivity, perhaps, this is affecting me a lot.

But it just occurred to me, that if I am having so much trouble bearing this, how would much sensitive animals like dogs cope with this. This idea brought in a handful of other concerns to my mind regarding use of crackers.

1. More than $0.8 Billion (Rs. 48,98,00,00,000.00) – is it a small amount ?

The total fireworks industry in India is more than $0.8 billion, i.e. around 4898 crore Indian Rupees. You may need to consider the fact that the prestigious  Mangyalaan project of India is only 450 crore Indian Rupees. So just think, how much we can save. Or in other words, how much we are blasting away.

2. HUGE Air Pollution – it’s enough to make your child asthmatic

During festival seasons in India, huge amount of suspended particles are introduced into the atmosphere. Not to mention about the high amounts of Magnesium, Sulphur Dioxide, Hydrocarbons and Carbon Monoxide. These causes respiratory diseases. inhalation of magnesium causes metal fume fever while copper compounds cause irritation in the respiratory tract of our body. And the gases take much time to get cleared. This is more than enough to make a person asthmatic. You also contribute a significant share to Global Warming.
