The team was awoken from it’s mid-week stupor by a group of young (ok not-so-young!) video bloggers from Channel [V] Mumbai.
The team was in the city, shooting for a documentary series titled “My India Report” or MIR, which is on air from November [Thursdays 7:30pm only on Channel [v]!!].

What interested us about the concept was -
Free speech (ah!)
Current issues in focus
Common target groups
Pujarini, Shreya, Rohit, Vijay and yours truly responded to the team’s intelligent questions and at points, i think we developed a heightened respect for each other’s self-confidence, esp’ Pujarini’s “virginity” response!
Credit goes to the [V] team for asking offbeat questions on Sex education and allowing us to speak freely on relevant topics such as CSA, Incest, Law and CSA, Virginity, Sex, Marriage, Politics, Education and a plethora of other matters that DO affect our generation.
Azhar wrote a lovely account of his experience in Kolkata here – http://www.myindiareport.in/2007/09/21/sexual-abuse-hiv-and-the-city-of-joy
We’re waiting for the first Kolkata episode of MIR now, and are hoping fervently, that we haven’t messed up!
Thank you to Azhar and the Channel [V] team for a memorable evening.
