PARADIGM SHIFT IN SAVE INDIAN FAMILY MOVEMENT - SIF 2.0

WE DID IT!! SIF 2.0




Now, something about the Thought, the Actions, the Journey and the Result.

THE THOUGHT:

When, like any other movement, internal disagreements came up in name of Funded or Non-Funded models and benefits of the same, SIF Chapters came up with a Peace Process. Process was to Live and to Let Live. Now with expansions happening on each of ideologies, individual strengths were reduced and could have been viewed as a challenge but teams proved it otherwise yesterday. Probably an aligned team of 20 can do a MUCH better job than team of 100 with disagreements.


Then a bigger challenge, the basic difference of opinion was about Funding. On Funding, both ideologies agreed, YES LIKE ANY WAR/MOVEMENT, WE NEED FUNDING TOO. Then what was the difference? Difference was, a segment said, END FREE COUNSELLING AND CHARGE MONEY FROM VICTIMS. And lot of others said, dont penalize victims of
 #‎LawMisuse instead put efforts towards reaching out to the same segment who are biggest supporters of #‎FeministMovement in India, Corporates.

While taking the path of Corporate funding, we knew, we were upto a big challenge. A challenge just not that #LawMisuse victims should be protected and not fleeced the way system treats them, but to demand contributions from the very corporates which were considered as freehold of #Feminist funding. WE TOOK THE CHALLENGE.

THE ACTIONS & THE JOURNEY:

Almost 15 Volunteers came forward and with 100% support from Kolkata SIF team (
Hridaya Kolkata) started walking the path.

We knew that we need to start with something sensible and that is where the plan of Souvenir "Save Family Magazine" came up along with Celebration of this MEGA EVENT to celebrate the 10th Foundation Day.


Then, this 15 member team (including
 Mra AL, Mra Manav, Saurabh,Harpal Singh, Sattu Jatav, Manish Bhardwaj, Rishi Jain, Pradeep, Bharat Bhaskar, Vikas,  Ajay Verma, Manni & others) went all out in Conceptualising of the event, designing of the magazine and most important, funding from corporates. We also went ahead and sought Articles from the best writers and proof readers of the SIF Family and got great write-ups finalized from Partha Sadhukhan, Burt Phoenix, Bharat Inbritain, Swarup Sarkar, Subramanayam, MraPrakhyat Sif Karnataka, Amit Deshpande. The design of the magazine came up to a total of 36 pages as we had to thank our Patrons, Our supporters, the Corporates who helped us in this FIRST EVER Endeavour.

Teams toiled for over 45 days to get this dream fulfilled. We knew the seriousness AND WE KNEW THE IMPORTANCE. Importance was, WILL CORPORATE EVER FUND MRA MOVEMENT?
Amazing job done by all those who managed to get the Souvenir Ads and special thanks to those who really motivated us by criticizing us. Questions were raised, allegations were made. All these gave us more strength to do something really different for Men's Rights Movement. WE MOVED IN POSITIVE DIRECTION AND THE SUN FOLLOWED US.


NOTHING SUCCEEDS LIKE SUCCESS AND THIS PROVERB WAS AGAIN PROVEN.
Hon'ble (Retd.) Justice Shiv Narayan Dhingra & Respected
 Suhaib Ilyasi ji kindly consented to grace the occasion as the Hon'ble Chief Guest and Special Guest respectively.
Thoughts kept pouring in. Mra Wasif Ali found us a great venue and we were all set. We were at a Point of No Return from very starting.

Regular meetings started. Weekly meetings got added with strategy and planning meets. Then, we got to our Technology platform when the Organizing team got onto Whatsapp "SIF FOUNDATION DAY" group and as the time was closing in, we got into Voice Conference Calls each night using sabsebolo.

In the last 1 week, detailing was pursued to smallest detail. Magazine design finalization, adding Ads to the magazine, backdrop, water for participants, Refreshments, Lamp Lighting, 2 Projectors, Site surveys, Backdrops, banners, Invites. Printing was on fast pace, Immediate sponsorships & last minutes ads moved in, Backdrop was designed,
 Vijay Naru got us the Invites, Media campaigning of 100+ media houses, Emailing to groups, FB Events, Twitter sensitization etc. etc. etc. ..... the list is unbelievable to even recollect.


And the D-Day:

What a planning, what an execution, What a Quality. Banners, Backdrops, Invites, Bouquets, Invites, Presentations, Flow, Script, Coordination, criticism, cynicism, etc etc etc fuelled us to deliver, DELIVER 10th SIF FOUNDATION DAY.

E-Magazine Launch was another highlight of the event. Magazine is available at:

IT WAS A HAPPY BEGINNING.
