DEFEND THE RIGHT TO LOVE

The recent incidents of fundamentalist violence in many parts of Karnataka has led to the curbing of freedoms of common people. One of the point of attacks has been to curb the right of people to have friends and lovers across communities. A fixed and divisive idea of Indian culture is being thrust upon us. While we resist this violence, we also need to clearly state that we see love as a basic human right which must be defended from attack by fundamentalists of all hues.
The idea of love which cuts across all boundaries, is part of every culture around the globe. The stories of Heer – Ranjha, Nala – Damayanti, Dushyanta – Shakuntale, Krishna, Rukmini, Romeo-Juliet and even John and Abhishek in Dostana are some among the many!
It is time for us to send a strong message to those who say that the ‘right to love’ is not part of our culture. They speak from a position of ignorance of a rich history of Love which is an integral part of our culture.
Please Join us to celebrate this precious right. Lets stand in solidarity and strengthen the choices and lives of those who love…. unabashedly.
Lets come together to celebrate love and send a message to those who propagate hate.
All you need to do is wear something RED OR PINK and meet us at Mahatma Gandhi Statue on MG Road at 12 o’clock. We will walk through MG road and Brigade road. If you don’t catch us at the Gandhi Statue look for us, we’ll be painting the town red… and pink. Join us with friends, family and lovers!
Time: 12:00 noon to 2:00 PM
Date: Valentine’s Day, 14th
February, 2009.
