But the organising committee thinks it’s unfair to blame them. “Why did the students not attend the meeting held to decide the date? Also, if it were in December, it would clash with HIV/AIDS day, elections and vacations,” reasons Rituparna, member of the organising committee of Delhi queer Pride Parade.
However, there are others who say that they will still try to make it to the parade for a short while. “Though it won’t be easy, but I will at least go for an hour,” says Kaavya Pillai, a student.
