Embracing Wordpress

Saturday, December 6, 2008

I have finally decided to join Wordpress :) Yes, it's now or never. You can look me up at http://escribble.wordpress.com. Please kindly add my new blog to your feed readers and/or blog roll's.

We have also decided to keep updating this blog from time-to-time. We won't give it up. Tarun would be more involved with serious writing, so this would definitely be his main platform where he would be blogging frequently. Don't worry, we would be lurking between blogs from now and then. Please continue showing your support to us here at wescribble dot blogspot dot com :) We truly appreciate your feedback and would continue to write as best as we hope to match and/or exceed our reader's expectations.

Thank you.

Media frenzy

Monday, December 1, 2008

I was taken aback reading this words on IBNLive, quote "Blowin' in the wind: A candlelight vigil in Mumbai. Do these vigils help? Can gestures be converted into action?" end quote.

We, Indians are trying our best to come together as a community and help start the healing process. The media is not helping here. I seriously believe that gestures can be converted into action if we all play our role as a citizen in demanding action from our elected leaders. And to turn our words into action is the reason why we voted for our leaders in the Govt the first place. At least they do should do their part. If they are not doing anything, then the public should demand action using various medium to express thoughts and suggestions. I am very annoyed at the media questioning our efforts.

If you want to make a change, join me and the rest of the world by debating our thoughts, ideas and opinions in the hopes of converting our words into actions.

I can't stress enough the importance for each and every one of us to voice our opinions and thoughts, ethically. I am sure not only me, but there are others that would love to make a difference in life, just the methods are often incorrect or unavailable. I find that Facebook is a great platform as it gives us opportunities to reunite, without any prejudices, to speak our thoughts and hopefully changing it into action. We have set up a vigil/candle lighting event at our readers' disposal. To participate, you just need a Facebook account and join us by clicking on the vigil event that can be found here. It is important to honor our fallen heroes, safely of course.

Let's join hands in tackling and combating terrorism and numerous humanity issues through healthy debates. I want to see change. I want to reach out to those that can really help us raise our voices towards action. There is so much we can do, and debate is only the first step. This time, let's get our words out - loud and clear. UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL. Every one wants to make a change or a difference, so why not start here? You can also be involved in collating news, information and research using various online resources. Of course you would also be contributing your valuable ideas as well. We sincerely hope every one of you would contribute civilly and let's not turn this forum into a religion or communal issue. Encourage healthy debates by not engaging in religious and personal attacks. Gain respect by respecting each other. If interested, please drop us a comment or two, either here or at our Facebook group. We are happy to hear from you. God bless us all during this tough and trying times.
