But i wonder on all the facebook posts that have been cropping up on my friends walls on why exactly we should be Opposing the " La tomatino" One of these read as below
Dear Bangaloreans.. Please boycott the 'La Tomatina' festival to be held in Palace grounds on the 18th of September. Its a Royal waste of food !!.. Which could actually be used to feed those 5.6 million children who die of malnutrition every year :-\. Like . .if u agree and help cancel this depiction of fake westernization.. Go on.. Put it up as your status
I really Wonder how many of these people who posted this status on their walls are really concerned about feeding the 5.6 Million kids who die of Malnutrition. ????????
So if this is the sole reason that they wanna boycott the event, are they ready to instead donate the 1.2K Rupees ( Entry for the event) to Charity.
I Could clearly bet a "No" on the vast majority of people posting these messages. So Guys Please don't post a message just because it looks appropriate, or it appeals to you.
We(Including me) need to clearly assert that we are in most cases among the greedy lot, who would never care about the rest of the population Lets not try to earn an additional mileage taking stands on situations for which we have not acted any good.
