Interview with ‘Friends For Life’ an NGO in Bangalore

Here’s the second podcast with Aniisu K Varghese and his colleagues on ‘Friends for Life’ an NGO in Bangalore. You can read about them here.. They have also been featured here.

In sum, I have asked them about the genesis of their organisation, what are their objectives, the campaigns that they have undertaken, their opinion on the helmet-rule policy by the government etc and one provocative question. You’ll have to really listen to the podcast to know what that is.

The indecisiveness of the government in setting a date for implementing/enforching the helmet rule of the HC really riles me. I mean, isn’t this a simple thing? Yet, this has gotten embroiled in politics so much so that the CM is involved. Aren’t there other pressing issues like addressing infrastructure woes, tackling the spiralling crime rate, raising the bar on governance that should occupy the attention of Shri. Kumaraswamy avare?

I can only shake my helmetless head in frustration! Just where is Bangalore heading to?

    Thanks Ravi for posting the interview with FFL as a podcast.

    Maybe, you could title the headline as: Talking Heads – interview with key members of road safety NGO – Friends for Life, Bangalore.

    @ ravi: great job! you’re really beginning to sound like a really professional journalist :) this was really clear and it was really good listening to these folks. you’re quite right about the difference just reading an interview and listening to them… makes a much better impact, i must say.
