REDEFINING A ‘JORU KA GHULAM’ (JKG)
The Winners of the Joru Ka Ghulam (JKG) Award were announced in the Blogscar Ceremony. These bloggers fitted this description of a JKG,
“In India it takes a lot of guts for a man to take a stand against customs that oppress women. It’s worst if he is fighting in support of his wife (Joru)! All such acts of courage are rewarded by labeling him a JKG = Joru Ka Gulam. Literal meaning: ‘Slave of Wife’ ” (Read about some JKGs here.)
But I realise a lot of people are unsure about what this definition of JKG stands for, hence these two contests.
How would you define a JKG?
i. Please do keep in mind that a JKG is not necessarily a married man. A young boy or a very old man can also be a JKG. Any man who stands up against Gender Inequality is a JKG.
I know this is not a very clear or good definition that is why this contest… 😆
ii. Please leave your entries (definitions/captions) in the comments space.
iii. All the entries will be published at the same time, only after Wednesday, 10th June, 2009.
iv. You are welcome to submit as many entries as you please. 😆
v. The winner will be chosen from short listed entries by polling and voting. Anyone can participate and submit their definitions of JKG and then they can vote as well. 🙂
Best JKG Award Badge Contest
i. Our Judge for this contest is superblogger and JKG Kislay Chandra. He thinks it would be great if the badge shows…
“What about this – A woman is doing something which is traditionally a man’s job… And the man is rooting for her , encouraging her. And the bottom of the picture can say , “What a JKG” ! What say ?”
But this is just a guideline, feel free to create something entirely different! (Also as usual our judge is susceptible to bribing)
ii. Send in your badges to firstname.lastname@example.org by 10th June 2009.
iii. You may submit as many entries as you wish.
iv. Our err… sponsors also claim that they have never before prizes for the winners! (They have been known to lie …) 😆
I am being pressurized to add humour to this contest by the Blogosphere’s scariest Dons, Don Sol and Don Indie... 😈
