Day 1 :: Digital Activism Fellowship
Shooting Bells with the HOHO Bus for Wheels!
Today was a long, tiring but fruitful day for us. As part of
the Bell Bajao social media campaign, we were out from dawn to dusk shooting
videos of people ringing the bell in diverse settings.
We ditched the car and instead took the HO HO bus (my first) to tour Delhi and its sounds. Here are a few
points that ‘rang a bell with me’:
A big hi five to the Ho Ho bus. It’s just not a marketing
stunt, it works. On time with live
commentary on the history of Delhi by college students who play the conductor
The Ho Ho ride gets better if you have a group of
enthusiastic kids singing “Why this Kolaveri Di”. (I did not like the original,
but this was good)
As opposed to popular belief, Delhites are helpful and
co-operative. Thoda pyaar sey samjhaney ka!
Bells are interesting and different people ring the bell
different. I say ringing bells can be linked to personality traits
I was wrong when I thought twins grow out of dressing alike
within a few years. We met a pair of 36 year old twins dressed alike from head
to toe. (Oh they looked cute ringing the same bell)
Cops and security guards let you take liberties if you have
a big bulky DSLR
And there is a story brimming everywhere – dreams, satires,
melodrama, jest. Your interpretation of
these make “it a story in a story”:)
