The temperature count in Kolkata, India is one of the coldest Novembers in fifty years, given to it's advent [which according to the MET office is about a fortnight ahead.] Its chilling 17'C, two-three notches below normal! But, it was more chilly a year ago in November 2008, in another metropolis of the nation, Mumbai. Yes, I am talking of the malice Taj-Nariman Point incidence, where for 56 hours, bullets flew across the heart of Mumbai and across the mind of every Indian. Over hundreds injured and many matyred, given to the assurance of the safety of the mother land. From the high ranked officials of the Indian Police Force, Mumbai division to the many sepoys, lay cold on the bloody streets of Mumbai, thanks to the infiltration and terrorism aided by a neighboring nation!
This year, Idea Cellular, a Birla concern has come up with an innovative "IDEA". The TALK FOR INDIA policy, where to commemorate the initial moments of 26/11/08 [popularly known as 26/11], where by for one whole hour, any Idea caller' outgoing will donate to a find that would be going forward to the Indian Police Force, to develop on the safety features for themselves and eventually the public. This is a Nationwide campaign, and according to the tele-sources, IDEA is India's fourth largest cellular service provider after Bharti-Airtel, Vodafone-Essar and BSNL, having a combined base of 5 crore customers. Re1. donation per customer would give a minimum amount of 5 crores [INR 50,000,000] The Talk for India hour would be 8:26PM to 9:26PM, when the Taj-Mumbai was attacked a year back to this date.
I don't have an IDEA connection, but I support this innovative and noble cause. Infact I would also like to Quote Mr. A. Bacchan [Jr], "What an Idea Sir-jee".
