SMS satyagraha

Mumbai Mirror reports:
After conventional protests failed to stop the Thane Municipal Corporation from dumping garbage at a vacant plot near their houses, 627 families of Saket Complex in Thane earlier this week badgered the concerned TMC officers with SMSes. So intense was the onslaught that began on the morning of July 19 that the TMC changed some of its officials' cell numbers.Not to be outdone, the protestors took just two days to get hold of the new numbers and unleashed a fresh flurry of messages.
Heh. So you can change the world with instant messaging.
