“A Big No TO VALENTINE”- Report

SIO successfully observed protest for V’day

A protest was successfully organized at Bandra Station today, 3 pm-5 pm to highlight the ill effects of celebration of valentine day.

Students from nook and corners of Mumbai were gathered holding play cards and banners, giving the messages like “Happy Valentine’s Day-Happy $’s day”, “A Big NO to V’day”, “Be Valentine to the Society”, “STOP commercialization of Relationship etc.”

“only one day is not sufficient for expressing the true LOVE. It should be basically for 365 days, These days are nothing but money market for MNC’s seeking their interest, over 900 Million cards are exchanged during these days, Imagine equivalent amount can make a difference in millions life.” Said Mirza Kamran, He was speaking to Reports in his Media Bite.

Many students and young couples also gathered to listen the message which was delivered through corner meets by SIO members.

Beautiful handbills were also distributed on this occasion. This was a creative way of giving the same message.

“The celebration of Valentine’s Day is nothing, but giving open license to the youth to indulge in immoral acts. We believe that such activities will erode moral and family values, which ultimately promotes promiscuity among youth” Opined Abdul Qadeer (President SIO Mumbai)

“We are against this western cultural invasion in our society as it affects our family bonds and undermines India’s culture of respecting each other as sisters and brothers. We strongly believe that the motive behind projecting this day is to promote unethical male-female relationships” Kamran added.

In corner meets multiple good messages were given

Like “We should cherish and celebrate all kinds of love that the human heart is capable to feel. This includes loving one's family, loving one's friends, loving one's neighbors, loving orphans and the poor, loving animals and pets, loving nature and environments, loving one's parents and one's children, etc. What we see happening on the Valentine’s Day is exactly the opposite. We should question our acts and not copy others”

“SIO demands that students should behave as a responsible citizen of INDIA and realize what they can contribute to the society. Students should realize the real motive of Valentine’s Day and not fall prey to this culture of nudity and not be self centric alienating themselves from the society rather they should be caring for all and play their part in reconstruction of the society. We should spent some time with poor and needy and spend the same amount, which is going into expensive gifts and cards or on outing somewhere, on them”,

Your Pearls of Wisdom

Success breeds success

There was a farmer who grew superior quality, award-winning corn in his farm. Each year, he entered his corn in the state fair where it won honors & prizes.

One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew his corn. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.

"How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with
yours each year?" The reporter asked. "Why brother"

'' The farmer replied, "Didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen grains from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field.

If my neighbors grow inferior, sub-standard & poor quality corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I have to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors to grow good corns."

The farmer gave a superb insight into the connectedness of life. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbors' corn also improves. So it is in the other dimensions and areas of life!
Those who choose to be in harmony must help their neighbors and colleagues to be at peace.

Those who choose to live well must help others live well. The value of a life is measured by the lives it touches...

Success does not happen in isolation; it is most often a participatory and collective process. So share the good practices, ideas and new knowledge with your family, friends, team members and neighbors & all.
