  1. Not a fan of some of your methods, or stereotyping.
    But, you guys should probably try and talk to the BU Vice-chancellor, as well as Pre-Uni college admin folks.
    There's been yet another article/statement on requiring 'decent clothing' and equating clothing and eve-teasing.

  2. 1. conduct and opinion poll- (define eve teasing)
    Do you think it makes sense? There are very thin lines. Marking some expression as something is quite dangerous in my opinion as you loose the beauty or opportunities that particular expression has. However what you are doing is quite cool as it increases awareness. I am in process of thinking and writing a long comment.

  3. we do as we do because we believe it makes sense.

    the opinion poll serves the purpose of intiating dialogue, and makes an entry for people to interact.

    it by no means is an opinion poll to 'gather' statistics...but to open discourse. people recognize the format of an opinion poll. its simple, easy to interact with..

  4. Cool
    I really liked your 2 statements:
    1)we do as we do because we believe it makes sense.
    2)it by no means is an opinion poll to 'gather' statistics
    Now it makes much sense to me.
    Thumbs Up
    You are on your way

  9. Hi Pallavi

    not a prob. it makes the task easier if you email me at blurtblanknoise account and sign up from there rather than post a message...coz then if everyone starts posting messages instead, we will be wasting our time tracking volunteers!

    so....

    see you soon!!

    will tell chinmayee and add you in here
