In continuation with its ‘De Taali’ campaign, BIG 92.7 FM’s, Delhi Station organized a special ‘Self-Defense’ training for the women of this city on 18 March 09 at ‘World Of Wonders’, Noida. Special trainers from the prestigious ‘Krav Maga’ organistaion joined BIG FM to impart ‘self-defense’ techniques. Along with the enthusiast participants and trainers, BIG FM’s RJ – Jiah / Neeti also learnt few techniques on ‘self-defense’. This training is a part of the ‘De Taali’ campaign to fight the menace called eve teasing.
The campaign has been planned in great detail, bringing to light the issue that is faced almost every day by women, from across ages and economic strata of society. The campaign was flagged off from the studios of the radio station on the eve of International Women’s Day by RJ Jiah. The campaign also saw see RJ Jiah , Ramit and Parikshit visit different locations across the city and on catching eve teasers red handed applaud them in true Delhi style, embarrassing them enough to understand the awful act performed.
BIG 92.7 FM Delhi launched the ‘De Taali’ Gang with RJ Jiah and Sunita and has taken it upon themselves to create awareness and put to shame men who lack respect for the opposite sex, thus committing the shameful act, believing that it is their right to do so and seeing no wrong in it.
Commenting about this great initiative, Ashwin Padmanabhan – Station Director, BIG 92.7 FM – Delhi said, “The issue of eve teasing is huge and not unknown to the city of Delhi. We as a responsible media platform are taking up the initiative of De Taali which is to embarrass eve teasers by applauding the ghastly behavior that they undertake each day. We are also empowering the women of this city by providing them with a robust ‘self-defense’ training being provided by ‘Krav Maga’. De Taali is a comprehensive campaign which will help women to look up and voice their concern and be better equipped to take action and stand up for themselves.”
