Maharally: Help us reach out to the world

Subject: Maharally: Help us reach out to the world

Can you guys also search out international cycling groups/associations and cycling event organisers/participants across the globe and write to them similar short enticing messages, which will make them come and ride with us!(it would be a publicity blitzkrieg, even if 1 foreigner joins us!, besides the pull it will exert on the international media!).
You should especially write to the Dutch cycling embassy, they would then link us and support us everywhere they have a reach to, pls find the relevant emailids at: , (pls tweet tagging them, etc), and

Also contact: (Tour De france the most coveted cycling event, for the Time being!, till Maha Rally picks up pace and popularity, not really joking, it should be our dream... and if we dream right and act meticulously.... it will materialise, it's just a question of when, no whether!). Tour of Nilgiris is our own event : .

 Ccing to some who are closely associated with cycling for their info and references. Pradeep, Vimal, and other cycling pals, please do send us emails/weblinks of organisations and individuals who could be interested in associating with the Maha Rally.
Guys, "Maha Rally for Change" is all about positive changes and reforms around each of us, which concerns everyone. Check out MR website:

Hence we need to reach out to everyone across the globe, to get international support(they could use this new social-movement model, in their own countries, mixing sport with social responsibility, through solution & result-oriented patriotism and positive activism) network with all possible cycling groups nationally and internationally.

We also should inform cycling events worldwide about the Maha Rally and what it stands for, this actually deserves to be made bigger than the Tour de France, though it cannot be compared to any cycling event per se directly, since it's more of a socially responsible yatra, a  journey involving exploration of self and our country, in which one gets a chance to be a real "change-agent", touching various parts of India, trying to tie up the problems across  India, to those(voluntary groups, govt. agencies or individuals) who can work on suitable solutions.

The Maha Rally, is not just sports, it's Karma Yoga:

Maha Rally: Calling for volunteers

Please do go through the planning for Maha Rally below, and send me(mail us separately at : maharally (at) gmail (dot) com) your contact details for joining in as a volunteer.

Maha Rally brief plan: 

1) Reaching out to media and hence public: Conduct as many awareness events along the rally route(, where ever SIF members can organise a) A public meeting b) Press Meet c) Awareness rally(any vehicle, around the town for some distance), or some similar event which will get reported in the media(getting the media's attention is the important part here, since published news means automatic reach to public, so any event which is designed and executed to get media's involvement is ok).

2) Consolidation of reformist NGOs/groups: To coordinate with other reform oriented groups who work for positive change, ie. any change which will improve the way we all live(eg. Human rights, energy/environmental conservation, local area empowerment, organised youth groups, groups for facilitating good governance, judicial reform groups, political reform groups, senior citizen forums, NRI forums, Pensioner's forums, etc etc). 

This is for creating a database of groups/forums which work towards positive change in India, so that we can later try and organise all these NGOs/Voluntary organisations and collectively bargain for our issues, create and project a formidable vote bank, etc, which is sure to get attention of major political parties and we collectively (rather than fighting for separate rights/demands in different corners of India, with limited 'active'/committed members) will then have a better chance to get our demands met.  

3) Reaching out to the youth: Liaison with educational institutions, making them aware of what awaits them in future, about anti-male laws and attitudes, etc., so that they too start working against threats which will affect them in their near future. 

College's and University's student bodies need to be contacted to make them aware of what the rally is about and how they could contribute and participate, among all the groups we can get in touch with, students will be the most closely knit group, and hence we need to focus our attention very tightly on educational institutions.. since the more organised and united they are, the stronger their bargaining power is!. Another reason why educational institutions should be focused is because we need to reverse the feminazi indoctrination there, since feminasies too know how important it is to catch them young, they have been reinforcing their arguments(which are untrue and made with ill motives) in each and every student who passes through our educational system- it's time that we reverse this negative spin!.

In brief this Rally is an attempt to consolidate strengths of good/suitable groups/individuals, organise and then collectively bargain and ensure that power comes back to the People. 

This rally could be as big as we make it to be, we all have a big example in the Dandi march, which started out as small, we too can expect this Maha Rally to snowball into a huge movement, by the end of its proposed 55 day duration, across 4000 kilometers(the core riders will be on cycles, there are 3 riders including me, who are presently committed to ride the full length. Other short distance rallyists can join in for any distance in any vehicle, along the rally's route).

There are many other things which can happen during this rally, which can be planned out. Do let me know your impressions about this and your suggestions, if any. 

Do reply with your contact details for volunteering for Maha Rally(mail us separately at : maharally (at) gmail (dot) com), and send in your opinion/suggestions about the Maha Rally plans.
