So where are you from? - A brief intro about yourself and other pirate members

[deactivated account] Public Seen by 846

I was wondering if there were any other members of our group from the place i live in , Chennai.
Also, thought it'd be nice if each of us gave an intro stating where we're from since there is no other way of finding that out here on loomio.
It could also be useful to meet up in person and easier to interact if need be.. in the future or whenever.
Having said that , Im Arjun J . I work in the merchant navy, am 26 and live in Chennai.

Pls do mention how you got to know about Indian pirates- twitter, fb, a friend, etc.

@praveenarimbrathod okay..

Pirate Praveen

Pirate Praveen September 6th, 2015 07:16

@arjun we will talk about current hot topics like caste reservations, try to come up with a statement. We'll also discuss ways to take pirate ideas to more people. But most important is to be with people who are passionate about same issues. When passionate people meet ideas clash and new ideas emerge.

Bady April 19th, 2016 06:17

hi all... my full name is ambady anand sivasankaran. 23 years old, from thrissur, kerala. completed BSc Physics from Sree Kerala Varma College and currently doing MCA at IGNOU. also, i'm working as a part-time data-entry operator and a freelance web-developer.

basically a tech enthusiast and support the foundational philosophies of Pirate Parties, FSF, TVP, TZM, etc... books like Swaraj and Fourth World helped me to know more about Direct Democracy and the need for Decentralization of Power.

i consider myself as open-minded. i'd like to explore different dimensions and angles of a same subject and can change my views and decisions based on that. i'd also like to say that beyond an organization, movement, party, leaders or other individuals, it's the "ideas" which should matter the most. otherwise members of an organization/movement/whatever can be misguided and helps deviation from the core ideas/values easily.

i'd like to engage in healthy debates and expect co-operation and mutual respect from everyone. conducting debates/discussions is a way to find what is right/better instead of who is right/better. in many places i've heard that "what others think is none of my business", but i'd like to say that "we should consider what others feel" when raising arguments - "don't raise your voice, improve your argument". :)

thanks <3

Hi Guys,

I'm Wingston. Am from Tamil Nadu, but have lived in various cities all my life and the place i hold dearest to my heart is Bangalore. :)
I am currently a software engineer working in the UAE. Even though i'm an NRI i feel that the tone of our politics should include this very large segment of our brothers and sisters worldwide.

I have found that i hold views that are piratey in nature and in that spirit, i've decided to join the Indian Pirates.

Hi everyone,

My name is Ryan, I am 29 years old, a Canadian citizen, and an IT trainer. My parents are from Tamil Nadu, India. I have never lived in India, but I have often visited. I hope to continue my visits, so as to learn about my heritage and help, as best I can, the town my family comes from.

I came across the Pirates on Reddit's India forum when I was researching India's geopolitical situation and ways I could help. My view on geopolitics is near identical to the current version of the Pirate Constitution! That is why I decided to join, if possible.

hey folks... i am experimenting unplanned semi-retirement for the past 1.5 years. came out of so called public funded research institute. Diverged myself into my passion, with personal support structures.

been in calicut, chennai and now in vellore.

when it comes to indian pirates, i have just been a audience so far. recent invitation from @praveenarimbrathod i find people with similar overlapping set of social/economic/political goals have made me think about the movement critically.

Well this is gonna be a weird one hey.

I'm the deputy secretariat for the pirate party UK. In October this year i will be traveling to the Calcutta region to help out at a deprived music school. Wondering if there is anyone in that region, be the first international pirate visit ;)

Heard about you from a quick google serch (by the way this one comes up first (https://piratepartyindia.com/) not (http://pirates.org.in/) don't know which one is the main). But yeah have fun all.
