The World Naked Bike Ride, scheduled on June 13, is sure to gather huge attention as eco-freaks decide to pedal the oil-crisis out in their respective first birthday suits. So the World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR), organized and supported by various groups, urges all to be naked on their bikes on WNBR Day. With civility thrown to airs, marauding law and order just to satisfy personal whims, they’re sure to deter the masses away from driving the gas-guzzling autos. Though body-art is something to dispel the onlookers, I still believe that a sane visualization of nudity in an insane milieu is just impossible. Last week Miranda Kerr did it, this time whole of the world seems to catch the contagion.
We face automobile traffic with our naked bodies as the best way of defending our dignity and exposing the unique dangers faced by cyclists and pedestrians as well as the negative consequences we all face due to dependence on oil, and other forms of non-renewable energy.
Alternatively, shouldn’t they contribute monetarily for researches wherein solutions to the energy crisis could be chewed on? Is it justified to expose without even knowing if it connects to the cause or not? Well, nudity is a vogue nowadays; you adore, dislike or complain on something and you bare it all. Still, this is not the way to get on with.
