""Sita Sena Kickstarts**

excerpt from SITA SENA

India is shining! And our women are respected. Respected either as a devi or as a whore. And if you are neither, you are beaten up, molested and abused. India is shining. I repeat. India is shining.

We men should get up and support and protect the women? No. I will not. We will not. We should not. I donot believe women are weak and need support. They could get up and be counted as a force to reckon with. They could get out of their kitchen and office and kitty parties and launch a crusade. Shobhaa De my much-loved BlogDost suggested "SITA SENA". And I love her for this.

Come on girls, woman. Join in, Speak Up and be counted. We men will merely and merrily join the strong, thriving, motley woman gang.

Join the SITA SENA… irrespective of religion, caste, age and creed!

For if you don't, your kind will continue to be abused by men who claim to be guardians of Indian culture… for whom dressing in jeans and shorts is western culture and guess abusing, beating up, molesting women is Indian culture.

Let's do it. JOIN IN WOMEN.

And men aren't obscene, never they are! Even if they wear a lungi that exposes 40% (or more) of their naked body, they still don't. And men who wear shorts, they represent Indian culture? I guess they do. Even if it showcases their unwaxed hairy legs. Right?

I, A Man of Democratic India, would be at Gateway of India wearing "(supposedly) Obscene" shorts on WOMAN'S DAY, March 08, 2008 in broad day light at 12 noon (they abused our women in western outfits in broad day light you see) Are there other men who would like to join me… please be there in your shortest shorts with me.

Woman. Wear whatever you want and join me at gateway. And if someone tries to play mischief?… you are smart…. You know what to do.

coming up. FACEBOOK event and logo! Will update this space.

Thanks *Aham* for stepping up and protesting. I will be there in spirit. I have always believed in the strength of rhetorical action.

How about "men" wearing "pink chaddis" at the Gateway of India instead? That will continue the symbolic element started last month and at the same time, present it in a completely different light.

After all, the purpose is also to continue the thread of protest and continue to make noise for the right reasons.

God bless!

Yep! WE need to stand up more! First, we women should unite to fight against this blantant discrimination and abuse and stop blaming the victims...
And the SITA SENA - is an awesome idea!
