Bengaluru Sene !

February 16, 2009

bengaluru sene

(a.k.a Bengaluru’s Moral Police Police )

From left to right:

Agni Sridhar
, firebrand editor of the tabloid ‘Agni’. Sridhar said in a newspaper interview that he would “kick these cultural goons and hand them over to the police”. An ex-underworld don (now writer and filmmaker), he’s not exactly the kind whose words you take lightly. (Or poke fun at, for that matter. Which is why I shall desist.)

Loosu Pankaja a.k.a Pinky a.k.a The Consortium of Pubgoing, Loose and Forward Women. A bunch of lovely ladies with a lovelier sense of humour who sent the goons pink chaddis for Valentine’s and rightfully trivialized their moral tantrums.More on ‘Loosu Pankaja'(the character) soon.

Support them:

Vatal Nagraj and other assorted political cruff. No one knows when Vatal last won an election (or consulted a fashion expert ) but he’s always around to protest in his inimitable style (that usually involves a buffalo) and hog the next day’s headlines.

Rajeev Gowda, IIM professor, social activist and 2002 finalist on the BBC MasterMind Quiz. Rajeev led ‘Bengaluru Unites’ – a human chain campaign that got software engineers to hold hands with college students setting off major hormone imbalances in cubicles across Bengaluru. Rajeev (who’s also a friend) lives a stone’s throw away from my house, so in the interests of my glass windows I shall not poke fun at him.

Support him:

If you’re Bangalorean, and weren’t beaten up (or married off) on Feb 14th 2009, I suggest you take your fingers off the keyboard for a second and give a hat-tip to these lovely ladies and fine gentlemen, without questioning their intent, method or result.

    Your cartoons are hilarious and expressive. I hope to see a comic strip from you.
    Waiting to see your take on other (if not equally) hyped social themes.
    My suggestion would be something on MEDIA. They keep making a lot of noise, even about controlling media 🙂
