Lead the change

We can bring about a change.
We will bring about a change.

Gone are the days when we just stood helplessly gazing the sky with just one thought-"Someone will change the world".

Its the time,time to challenge the so-called government and show them that the youth can not always be subjected to low lying jeans,messed up hair,booze,ciggies,culture killer and million more.Its time to show them that if it comes to youth,just one decision made can lead the nation and nobody can stop the youth from doing so .

Lets come together and show the world that now India won't take anymore of it.
Lets come together and simply ROCK IT.!

PETITION- India Peace Campaign

Dr. Manmohan Singh,
The Prime Minister of India

Room No. 152,
South Block, Raisina Hill,
New Delhi ,
India-110 001.

PETITION- India Peace Campaign

In the wake of the recent unfortunate events that have the shook the nation, the signatories of this petition are shocked, outraged and appalled. As concerned and responsible citizens of this nation we use this petition to express our extreme disappointment and discontent at the failure of the Government machinery in preventing and safeguarding the security of the common man.
The gruesome images of the Mumbai attacks are a stark reminder of our vulnerability-our porous borders and open waters. The fact that 10 terrorists were allowed to create havoc in the whole city underlines the basic fact; that how unprepared the whole system is. The image of a policeman fighting the terrorists having AK-47's with outdated rifles is a fearful one. What good is an ill-equipped security force in protecting the citizens?
After the Mumbai terror attacks, it is clear that armed security forces of India are the real heroes of our country. The retaliation by our security agencies despite so many limitations is inspiring to say the least.
We feel let down by our polity and the entire bureaucratic establishment of India.
The India Peace Campaign is a small initiative started by Eight college students and joined by people who shared their sentiments-The members of the India Peace Campaign are appalled ,saddened and disappointed at the same time at the callous nature adopted by the authorities in preventing (and subsequently controlling) such repeated acts of terror.
We believe that we voice the greater concern of the country when we ask for a peaceful India.

Our demand is simple: We want change. The signatories of the India Peace Campaign petition to the Government of India, the following remedial measures with immediate effect;
• With the safety of the citizens in your hands, a Federal Security System should be formed which would be better equipped to prevent and control unforeseen events that can be a threat to national security.
A better equipped security system requires efficient allocation of capital investment, adequate availability and access to the protective gear, arms and ammunition.
• A stronger intelligence network needed to better assess terrorist threats and report them across the security agencies so as to have a smooth transmission of information.
• Local law enforcement agencies should be better trained at crisis management, adequate availability and access to the protective gear, arms and ammunition.
• Sufficient Autonomy in security, investigative and intelligence agencies, higher level of freedom for decision making devoid of Political opportunism, to avoid filtered, misreported information and delayed action.
• Greater Remuneration Packages to our security personnel for their selfless service to the nation.

It is incumbent upon any government to ensure the security of its citizens. The Right to a Peaceful and Safe Life is one that we should not be forced to remind our governing authorities of or even fight for.
All that is needed is for those in seats of authority to deliver responsibly and hoping for this we request from the Government of India, under the leadership of the Prime Minister, that we are able to see the above necessary changes in the system, effective immediately.

The incident that shook us all.

A group of young students, appalled by the Mumbai attacks, have decided that it's finally time to do something. Our campaign aims at spreading the message of unity and peace among people all over the world.
India Peace Campaign has decided to start off with a peace walk. Our intention is to have a harmless yet meaningful gathering of all those people who agree that terror cannot fight terror. Unity of the human race, destroying "terror" and "fear" from our hearts is the answer.

The peace walk is being held in various cities in India and all over the world on the same date and time to show everyone that we are truly together in recognizing the gravity of these events and in our willingness to do anything to make this world a better place to live in.

Join us, wherever you are, at the locations given below.

This peace walk is also in remembrance of those who lost their lives in these tragic events.

Please help us in a cause that is not just ours, but yours too. Wear a WHITE shirt on the day of the walk or a white ribbon if you don't have a shirt.

Its is that time when we all our receiving hundreds of emails, participating
in 100 different discussions/ debates, watching the NEWS 24/7 all as a
result of 10.11.08- that fateful day, if I may call it so.

The nation is numbed, shocked- to say the least.There is anger residing inside
each one of us that is looking for ways to erupt.We're all asking the same
Is there and END?
can WE put an end to all this? You, Me, Us- who like to call ourselves

There are endless statements/ quotes/ discussions on how its time to ACT,
its time to DO something, we are all sick of fluff backed by no substance.

Yes it is time to ACT....because for so long all our nation has done is

*"India Peace Campaign" is an initiative by a bunch of individuals who like
to call themselves "Regular Civilians". Its is a campaign with the idea of
"Leading the Change". What Change? A change in the mindset of the people we
can influence. A change in the thought process. A change that is the need of
the hour. The aim of the campaign is to gather like minded people
who believe in standing up for the cause of the nation- as a nation. We
believe in defeating the very objective of these unethical, inhuman and
nothing short of ridiculous group of individuals called Terrorists- which is
to create Fear. So we started this campaign to just spread the message of
peace, love, harmony and above all INDIANness. Lets beat these terrorists
down to their basics. Lets all use our network to re-unite the country, for
the cause of the country. This campaign is about the spirit of the commoner-
the common citizen of India who shall not be afraid, who shall not play the
blame game, who shall not cause religious disharmony as a consequence of
these continuous atrocities by a bunch of frenzied minds. We all unite
together against TERRORISM. *

This Campaign aims at gathering as many like minded individuals as possible.
If you feel the way we do and want to create impact in your own capacity
then Just join us in spreading across this message. Become "Good Will
Ambassadors" . We aim at making maximum such ambassadors of positive change
in order to influence mindsets, get Our India together and remind these
anti-social elements - They might be able to kill our monuments but they can
NEVER Kill our Spirits!.
Once we get enough responses , we shall proceed with the rest- a PEACE WALK,
a FREE HUGS MOVEMENT, a PETITION to the parliament, MEDIA and everything
else we all can do in our own capacity.

*We started this campaign without affiliation to any political party,
religious community, social section of the society, caste, creed,
organization or even university. We have started this as campaign as
Indians, but above all as concerned Individuals who want to defeat the
terror that's being created and unite the country- our Beloved Bharat.* Join
in if you feel the same way as we do.

"Where the mind is without fear
