A crash course in changing the world.
Oonce upon a time there was a father and a mother.
They had two children.
They were happy.
Soon they had another cause for happiness.
They were going to have an addition to the family.
The mom had had two Caesareans.
Third time around, still the same thing.
The doc -a lady -asked her the same question as the previous two times.
Do you wanna go for a scan?
You can tell if there's something wrong with the kid and go for an…Continue
"The unexamined life is not worth living."
Ringing the curtain down.
What remains, of a time stretching from March 14th when I came on Uevoke.
I finished the ten quests.
I finished all the missions.
I have done my evokation and only need to edit it a little and send it in again when it is due.
Some more tidying, editing and backing up. Done.
I was hero…Continue

Freedom, loving our neighbours as ourselves by helping those in need and adhering to the golden rule.
In this process we may or may not end up changing ourselves, or saving the world. Like a nuclear bomb bursting we explode and the fallout is radiation that affects a million causes , burning as bright as suns. We sow change and we reap or harvest the future.
We have no…Continue

This is a comment I made to a blog post by Win The Planet Alexandru.
I felt it can stand alone so am moving it here.
If a game offers rewards, tangible ones like points, scholarships, honours , educational ceriticates for completing the course and awards AS EVOKE DOES - people are going to try for those, whether it's considered ok or not by the community.
A system with a heirarchy and a game which can be won or prizes that can be won where evoke admins can also…
I want anyone who is in India and on Uevoke to leave their name and email address at the bottom of this page in a comment.
People who would like to help India by evoking from outside India or work later by actually visitng or living in India to evoke there are also free to do so.
The two places I will be in are mainly Bangalore, Karnataka and Trivandrum or Alwaye, Kerala.
The corollary is if you need help from…Continue

Since I believe in crowd sourcing and proper planning that makes it easy for people to get at the best data clustered together I have decided to take Sarah O.Connor's idea FOUND HERE (http://www.urgentevoke.com/profiles/blogs/the-darknet-initiative) seriously and build my dark site on the dark net initiative that will be run by http://deltaning.com and…Continue

Radhika Darbari creates a forum for information.
MoE creates a wiki.
MAK is there with Elastika to ensure safety of drinking water and that its availability is not in danger.

When swine flu hit Bangalore in 2009 very quickly ads and posters and TV came out with the needed information that washing hands was one good way of keeping the flu away.
Many were affected and a few died but despite the masks and the panic the city quickly recovered.
In this respect I felt that effective communication is one of the best ways to fight an epidemic
So I have chosen outbreak comunication as my topic - or how sources view the story.
These I feel are…Continue
