La tomatina in India-appalling!!!

Just heard that the La-tomatina festival was recently held in bangalore and is soon going to be held in Mumbai on the 22nd of October.

Its the spanish version of holi i guess -where people hurl tomatotes at one another-remember Zindagi na milegi dobaara?

Here is my appeal to all Mumbaikars and to those Indians in different cities across the country  to which this festival (that is making a loud and vulgar mockery of our poor and underpriveleged )will be travelling.

PLEASE BOYCOTT  THE LA TOMATINA FESTIVAL

I have no problem with revelry but not revelry that is a slap on the face of the onlooker.

Spain can probably afford it. Throw tomatoes mindlessly around and be drenched in peurile excess

India definitely cannot. Its an appalling and insane waste of food.

Which could be actually used to feed those 5.6 million children in our country who die of malnutrition every year.

Go on Farhan Akhtar-take a stand. You started it now you put an end to it too.

Hamaare gareeb bachon ko zindagi milegi doobara

  1. why not simply join the me;ee ,catch and gobble up the
    tomatoes! we can invite all the poor to come and have
    ‘mazaa’ two birds with one stroke!
    JUST IGNORE AND DON”T BLOW IT UP!
    The Karnataka Govt banned it immediately too!

  2. go with bags and collect the tomatoes
    “THREE BAGS FULL”
    Money saved! Fruits gained!
    sell them next day!

  3. I agree with you suchitra. Its definitely sick to do something like this in India.
    This aping of western culture and running after all things foreign has to stop.
    Look how everybody went crazy for paris hilton- a starlet who became famous by stoping herself
    Having sex with her boyfriend in a video. Disgusting

  4. and close your eyes to the mindless wastage?
    Use the door to shield your person… as it goes on to stifle your persona!

    Come on people and raise a voice .

    well said Suchitra : )

  5. no it was not a festival in bangalore … actually it was the farmers thre their tomatoes on the road when they couldnt get proper price

  6. When 50% of people squander money, almost daily, on alchohol ,visiting star hotels and merry making what is wrong with this community festival? You don’t have to ape the West. But we, Indians, in the name of religion, waste lots of money for such merriment. Ganpati is one such festival. Tomato is the cheapest vegetable compared to other things.When lakhs and lakhs of rupees are being ‘drowned’in the sea they don’t think about the undernourished poor children. It is like Mary Antoiinette?who asked”

  7. [CONTD].”WHEN THERE IS NO BREAD WHY CAN’T THEY EAT CAKES.” THE FESTIVAL IS NOT APPALLING
