Raise Your Hands Against Racism

On March 7, 2015, Spice Radio on AM 1200 in partnership The Province Newspaper and Mosaic want us all to Raise our Hands against Racism at the Holi Festival. The colourful festival of Holi is celebrated on Phalgun Purnima, which comes in February end, or early March. Holi Festival has an ancient origin and celebrates the triumph of ‘good’ over ‘bad’. The festival bridges the social gap and renews sweet relationships. On this day, people hug and wish each other ‘Happy Holi’.

At City Halls all over the Lower Mainland we will invite everyone to come and celebrate Holi and put a colourful handprint and sign our anti-racism Tableau. We will then with help from our volunteers take the tableaus to the walk against racism to be held on Commercial Drive on March 21st.

Celebration of Holi fosters in a message of unity and brotherhood. On this day people visit friends and relatives to wish each other. Irrespective of it being a Hindu festival, Sikhs, Muslim, Christians and Jains join the festivities bringing in almost the whole nation together. The Festival of Holi can be regarded as a celebration of the Colors of Unity & Brotherhood – an opportunity to forget all differences and indulge in unadulterated fun. It has traditionally been celebrated in high spirit without any distinction of cast, creed, color, race, status or sex. It is one occasion when sprinkling coloured powder (‘gulal’) or coloured water on each other breaks all barriers of discrimination so that everyone looks the same and universal brotherhood is reaffirmed. This is one simple reason to participate in this colourful festival.

Shushma Datt C.E.O. i.t Media Broadcasting. “ As an immigrant to Canada I met many obstacles in my career and although things are getting better I look forward to the day that racism is finally eradicated for good. I feel it is incumbent on media and political figures to help in this process. As a holder of a public broadcasting licence it is our responsibility to do everything we can to serve the public interest”.

Show Delhi 2 Dublin some love

With lots of highs, sometimes, there are lows.  While doing a great concert in Oakland California, Delhi 2 Dublin had some bad luck.

After the concert they went back to their hotel for some much needed rest, only to be woken up at 5AM by the police.  They were informed that a number of cars were broken in to during their, and their van was also hit.  About $15,000 worth of equipment was stolen.  There are still some dates left in this leg of the tour and a new tour in Australia which they leave for on Xmas Eve.  Talk about rotten timing.

To replace their stolen gear, they’ve gone on to Indigogo, a crowd sourcing website, to try and raise some money to replace their gear. It’s already reached the front page of Indigogo due to it’s popularity.

Although the sentimental value of some of the equipment can’t be replaced, at least they can get enough money together to keep the tours going and bringing joy to the rest of their fans all over the world.
