Feast for Thought

Not pontificating. Only trying to bat on the side of the environment. And ethics. And simple living. And slowing down. (And trying to learn and practise before preaching or teaching...)

Coimbatore's 88888 campaign

Coimbatore city has its own share of do-gooders, Residents Awareness Association of Coimbatore, Siruthuli, Exnora International are a few action groups that do their bit, and show others the way to better civic and environmental sense.
Following on the lines of the Earth Hour observed by several cities, Coimbatore district Exnora has suggested that lights be switched off for 8 minutes at 8 pm on 08 Aug 2008. Small beginning, but commendable nevertheless.
(The timing will coincide with the commencement of the Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony, scheduled for 8:08:08 pm, on 08-08-2008)

Mr Rao
MBP is a 'parking lot' for 'a bunch that has nothing in common, not even a Mysore connection'.
If you have an identity, pl do share it.
Are you unhappy about the name? I am as proud as any native about ಮೈಸೂರು and other places of India, thanks more to a broad mind than to military training.
I look forward to more dialogues.
