('panga nahin lene ka' is hindi for 'don't you mess with me')
Some More Noise was a sound and performance intervention that took place in the South Extension subway. 30 Blank Noise Action Heroes showed up and built the event.
The Action Heroes ( women) confronted the public by simply standing in the subway and maintaining eye contact with passersby. An intimate situation would result in the action hero giving a letter to the stranger. The letter bore a testimonial of street sexual harassment starting as ' Dear Stranger'. The letters were both in Hindi and English.
( these letters are various people's blog posts from the Blank Noise Blogathon conducted earlier in the year.)

A sound piece enclosed the space and filled it with noise.
The event was supported by Khoj, as a part of their public art residency programme. Thanks to all at Khoj, Pooja Sood, Aastha Chauhan, Manoj, Hemant, Rohini Devasher, Arun and Ramesh.
