BMTC has planned their first ever Bus Day on Thursday, Feb 4, 2010 with a particular focus on 2 corridors – Hosur Road and Old Airport road. The idea is to take the Bus on that day (if you aren’t already taking the company bus or any other bus) and see the difference it will make to traffic congestion and air quality. Vehicle speeds and emissions will be monitored on the corridors to quantify the difference in order to further encourage people to travel by public transport. The campaign is meant to create awareness interactively (as paper free as possible) through an electronic survey and by just taking the Bus!

The Bus Day team at BMTC has designed a short survey and the first way we can help is to fill in the survey online.

Right now, Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh is deciding if he’ll allow corporations with American interests to genetically engineer India’s King of Vegetables—the brinjal.

The U.S.-backed companies say the Bt Brinjal will be free from pests, but Indian farmers have successfully grown brinjal for thousands of years without this toxic gene.

Here’s an exciting new way to persuade Mr. Ramesh to protect India’s brinjal: We’re going to make the World’s Biggest Baingan Bharta, in Delhi!

Can you help make a world record? The baingan bharta will have one brinjal for every person who signs our petition. We will present the names of all the signers to Mr. Ramesh.

Our goal is 10,000 brinjals. Add a brinjal by signing our petition today:


The petition says: “India should not allow our brinjals to be contaminated by corporations with American interests.”

Ask your friends and family to add a brinjal to the World’s Biggest Baingan Bharta—and protect Indian brinjal from toxic tampering. Just forward this email.

Bt Brinjal is created with U.S. technology that inserts the gene of a bacterium into brinjals. The gene causes the Bt Brinjal to produce toxins.

But there are no studies proving that Bt Brinjal is safe for human consumption. In fact, rats fed on Bt Brinjal had diarrhoea and liver weight decrease.

If Bt Brinjal is grown in India, it could contaminate traditional brinjal farms as well, thus tainting India’s food supply forever.

But there’s still time for Jairam Ramesh to stop corporations from poisoning our brinjals.

Can you help protect Indian brinjal? Click below to sign our petition to Mr. Ramesh and add a brinjal to the World’s Biggest Baingan Bharta:
