I Fix Chennai: Coming Diwali, We are lighting up the city.

Posted on: October 29, 2007

You know, we’ve been talking about one cultural activity to bring out the exuberance of this city and how united people can be together in certain things. I think we have an opportunity for that.

Diwali is coming. Most folks will be at home watching TV all day long and from the experience of previous years, traffic is at its lowest.

Take a main road. Imagine Mount road, and have lights along the entire stretch, by different people, whoever wants to set a light. I used to think that such a symbol of unity and in a collective manner would bring a lot of pride within the city. If the attitude changes a little bit, the kind of things that we’ll start to see will be phenomenal.

The statement is this. If you believe, we can contribute towards a better city, and you want to do your part, all you have to do is simple… celebrate this festival with us. Come and light a candle, a diya and include us as part of your community.

while politicians put up their flags and all, the city puts out lights of peace and unity. That’d be a nice statement, if at all a silent one.

So what are the next steps? Well, post a comment and we’ll take it forward from there. If you are keen on spreading the word around in your neighbourhood and to get them to participate, also let us know.
