My Article in Hindustan Times- "Festivals need not affect residents"

            466th BLOG -->>

        My Article/Opinion in Hindustan Time's Mumbai Edition of 25th September, 2011:


"Festivals need not affect residents"




Festivals need not affect residents

           " I am living in Panvel for two years. I am happy to see the town developing and improving every day. Panvel is even said to be the next big surprise for the people of Mumbai. People from South Mumbai have already started moving towards Panvel because of the peace and less population. But I am unhappy to see that the way festivals are celebrated in such a childish and foolish way. Recently, Janmashtami was celebrated and people set up the Dahi Handis on the busiest roads. It caused so much hassle and disputes that I felt we were celebrating a festival of fights and arguments rather than a festival of innocence and fun. Ganesh Chaturthi ended recently and I visited a river near my place to see many small idols of Lord Ganesh on the beach of the river. I hope some initiatives would be taken next year before celebration of the festivals in such a manner where the town will not have to suffer from pollution and traffic.

congrats for publication of your article in the Hindustan Times .It is an eye opener for the civic authorities . I agree that celebration of our festivals should not cause any problems for the public .Disposal of idols of our lords should also be done in a more dignified manner .thanks for sharing .My best wishes .Pls continue the good work .

I agree with you. Blocking the Roads, specially the busy ones , in the name of religious practices is irritating.

Congrats :)

Ajay, that girl deserved it.I cant sit with bangles in my hands when that girl abused me first. If you'll start, I'll surely reply.. Dont expect me to act like Mahatma Gandhi. And, I have never ever written anywhere- neither my blog nor on Twitter that we sud avoid abuses because I myself abuse a lot.. So plz stop targeting me.
