වයර් දිගේ- | ගොළුඛෙලි තැපෑලෙන්- බූන්දියේ අපි, 190/3/A, කැන්දලියැද්දපාළුව, රාගම.


ඉකුත්දා ඉන්දියාවේ Darjeelingහිදී, ගිටාර් වාදකයන් හයසීයක් එක්වී ජෝන් ලෙනන්ගේ Imagine ගීතය වයමින් සමූහයක් ලෙස ගායනා කළා. ඒ සමූහ දූෂණයකට ලක් කරන ලදුව මියගිය විසි තුන් වියැති ඉන්දියන් සිසුවිය- දාමිණීට උපහාරයක් වශයෙන්.

ඉන්දියාව පමණක් නොව මුලු මහත් ලෝකයම් කම්පාවට පත් කළ මෙම සිදුවීම, ස්ත්‍රීත්වය කෙරෙහි සමාජ ආකල්ප පිළිබඳ කතිකාවන් අලුත් කළා. හුදෙක් දූෂකයන් එල්ලීමට හඬ නැගීමට එපිටින් ස්ත්‍රීන්ට එරෙහි ප්‍රචණ්ඩත්වය සහ ලිංගික හිංසනය නැවත්වීමට කල් පවත්නා විසඳුම් අවශ්‍ය බවට රාජ්‍යයට බල කරන ජනතාවගෙන් ඉන්දියාවේ වීදි පිරී ඉතිරී ගියා.

Video's footnote-

Darjeeling Hills came alive with the sound of music on 3 January when nearly 600 guitarists strummed and rendered John Lennon's 'Imagine' as a tribute to Delhi's rape victim 'Damini'.

Shillong's 'Bob Dylan' Lou Majow, led the large ensemble - from young students, foreign tourists to music veterans- to render a moving and poignant rendition of Lennon's ode to peace. The event was organized by the Darjeeling Tea & Tourist Festival.

The evening saw Olympic medalist Mary Kom speak about the need for protecting women against sexual assaults. She said girls could learn boxing not just as a sport but also as a means of self-defense.

Speaking with, organizing committee member Diwaskar Chettri said this was the first time that around 600 people got together to play a song for a social cause.

"The event was planned very late so we could not get more participants. Darjeeling is a musical town with strong rock tradition and is poised to be the next music destination. The music event was a call for peace and harmony in an increasingly violent world that has engulfed India and Darjeeling too. The show was also a tribute to the brave Delhi girl who lost her life," he said.

He said a crime like rape was rare in Darjeeling and in the northeast region unlike cities like Delhi. He however said that many girls from the northeast were at risk from dangerous sexual predators in cities like Delhi. Men needed to change their attitude and outlook towards women for positive changes to develop.

"Men have to be more open, be sensitive and respect women. We must abolish the clichés of what women should be. Events like the concert are important to generate awareness among our girls about the potential dangers that places like Delhi can pose. Just because we like Western outfits does not mean our girls can be raped."
