Nice! Like it on Facebook so that your friends can join you here.
this seems hugely outta topic (thread)...just wondering if still dere is still a Protest @ IIMs thread alive...ccoud'nt find ne...
Is the protest on or has it met its fate.....?
@ Neo ... no, this fizzled out quite some time back.
Been 4 years since this thread was started...any progress so far?
*not trying to sound sarcastic/sardonic*
politics in India has its own quirks like there was this anti-sivaji site on Orkut , there a huge furor in mumbai and the mumbai police got the IP adresses of the community owners aand members and arrested them, there is an absolute lack of free speech in our country , the government can ban anything at its whim and u hav so many acts which make a mockery of democracy assam armed forces act , defense act chattishgarh.Anyways i m anarchist and beleive all big govts are equally bad , as a normal citizen in negligible in these big units.
Whats ironic is the fact that this thread has gone for 13 pages about the benefits of voting but the very same did not exercise thier vote in the pg award thead ..just 'blocked' it ? -.-

Jo, will search for the relevant news coverage on TV right away. Thanks for the directions to your post.
Sorry for the long silence from my end.
Thanks for the info, Jo and for the interview with Ipsita. Will surely watch the news coverage in the evenings.
And i suppose there was protest in my hometown pune too. Shall seek the details.
Please do let me know if there is any similar kinda action happening in Mumbai.
Hrmm how I hoped that it was a server overload problem, but apparently it isn't.
Chalo 12 hours of praying that when the servers are up AF, is still the AF we knew and loved :(
No updates on Delhi, our lady is too busy to talk for more than a minute on the phone.
Alrite,for once, the culmination justifies the hype. And the students in delhi are voting with their feet,no less. One only hopes that the IIT's and the IIM's come out clean on it so that the message of the collective consciousness of the student community is loud and clear.
P.S : Yea, Augustfury server is down;But boy that tells a happy story of its own:) . Some proof that, if at all needed, that we are up and about.
Ranjitha, its big time on the TV now. Whatever I could catch in the lunchbreak as follows.
Times Now seems to be giving it more air-time than NDTV and CNN-IBN.
The students are marching on to the Parliament. Last I saw them they were barricading roads near India Gate and running towards Rajpath.
It is actually a protest on the run, developing from sit-ins on the roads on CP, march to India Gate and a race all the way to Parliament.
The police got back to water-cannoning and tear-gassing the crowd. Apparently one teargas shell hit a student right on the head. So yes it is out of control.
One demand being made very clear is that government break its silence on the issue.
Seeing these people actually running towards Parliament while explaining their stand to the media literally got me out of my seat. Hell even I got pumped.
To think that I was having a general chat with Ipshita about their plans when she told me somethings happening, I got to go. And then this!
Switch on your TVs!
ps: Of all the things that could possibly happen today, AugustFury's server went down. I can only hope its a request overload.
In anycase I'm a little too excited to care.
I would request those who have access to a television, to scan through the news channels and update this thread with what is happening. Right now I'm pretty much writing this blind.
