Here and There

Anantha (e) Anti pointed to the latest post on his blog, The Chennai Right to Information Initiative, a citizen movement which will be kickstarted this weekend at Chennai. This seems like a better idea than transforming into an Anniyan.

Let’s say you are someone who’s escaping this intiative by an excuse that you work at Bangalore, hee hee, there’s another way to volunteer your time. IVA or Individuals for Voluntary Activities is a non-profit organisation operating from bagalore, has volunteers mainly from software organisations and students who chime in for vounteer work over the weekends. If interested, you could contact the IVA team directly.

    Great idea and a very good campaign! Keep up the good work. Please let me know if I can be of any help to this.

    Being in the US, I couldn’t be part of this campaign. But, I’d certainly join this when I move back to Chennai. I have blogged about this in my blog and have asked my friends to join this campaign as well:
