Does your heart beat for Bengaluru?
If yes, do something about it. NOW!
Can’t stop cribbing about ruthless traffic, mounting garbage or lack of infrastructure? Come Sunday, you can see for yourself how to make a difference. If you care the least for Bangalore, come out and join the historic Leadership March, says this bunch of IITians and IIMs, who have come under the banner of Leadcap.
One can talk and talk ( or write, for that matter ) but to effect changes requires action. For too long, citizens in India or Bengaluru have grown used to seeing our ‘elected’ leaders talk but baulk at action. Except, of course, when it was a matter of their own ‘self-preservation’, usually, lasting a couple of generations at the least. Its time now for citizens to say ‘enough is enough’ loudly to cause them acute discomfiture, raise doubts in them as to their ability and protest against apathy and insensitivity in solving day to day problems. Its time to wake up, folks; else the whiff you get will be uncollected garbage and not coffee.
The main theme of the proposed Leadership March on February 10 is ‘It’s time we stood up’. The subtheme is ‘Traffic discipline’.
In the near future, Leadcap hopes to reinforce the quality of leadership in individuals to fight complacency. “Together, we can change many things, but change should be inspired at an individual level. Our interventions will be at different levels, involving a crosssection of society. A series of 10 leadership marches around 10 zones will be held over 10 weeks,” says Sangeeth Varghese, founder of Leadcap.
As a forward thinking citizen of this wonderful city where we live, work and enjoy, join the march on February 10th, 9.30am. Assembly at the Gandhi statue near MG road Cricket stadium. Route: Kasturba road, Vittal Mallya Road, Residency Road and Richmond Road. Walk would culminate at the Richmond town ground, where experts will engage and inspire us on how we can build Bangalore as a city of our dreams.
Resist the urge to spend a ‘quiet’ Sunday relaxing in the comfort of your house. For once, walk out and march to a different beat.
The one inside urging you, yes YOU! to make a difference for Namma Bengaluru.
