'No to discrimination'

 
A group of seven students, lined up on one corner of the footpath, and held a thick rope in their hands. Five of them had their eyes covered with a black piece of cloth with the words reading, “Now, that we are blind, do we still discriminate.”

Interested public were handed a chit of paper and asked to sign up if they stood for unity and were against discrimination of any kind. The chits were tagged around to the thick rope with threads.  “The response from the people is quite overwhelming,” said a student Bharat, who was explaining about it to passersby. Apart from him, Kavya, Mohor, Anjini, Sachin, Amrita and Vinlov were involved in the project. They stood from 5 pm to 7 pm.

“This is part of our academic project, ‘Ideal Spaces’. We staged a similar event outside KFC on Brigade Road to highlight the theme of Women Empowerment and at Commercial Street to throw light on Eve-teasing recently,” said Kavya.
