Thread: How do you name an RTI Activist?

  1. How do you name an RTI Activist?


    We would like to know how would you define an RTI Activist and how would you name them.

    I came across a word 'Info Activist' in one of the Newspaper!

    Would you define activist as:

    Those who regularly seek information from Public Offices for larger public good or would you define them as those who help others in framing and using RTI. Personally, I think it is a mix of both.

    But is there a proportion and degrees?

    or is there some other definition to add?

    Is the term limited to only organized Activist like an NGO, Samiti, organization?



    I am opening the poll for the same. Kindly vote to let us all know.

    I prefer to call anyone after educating himself to the extend possible on RTI, engage in contributing selflessly, in any way for the sustenance of the RTI Act, an RTI Activist.

    Indeed good definition, I like the broadness you have provided with 'in any way'.

    With this broadness, many people would be involved into this definition, and may be we would need to define the grades to differentiate. Is it?

    Its more important that the applicant files an application for public interest and on a wider platform than just to solve some of his grievances.

    Something like what Bhaskar Prabhu asked about the roads in Bombay and Harikumar did by asking about the POW in Pakistan and ofcourse recently on the safety of sea harriers.

    Quoted---"I prefer to call anyone after educating himself to the extend possible on RTI, engage in contributing selflessly, in any way for the sustenance of the RTI Act, an RTI Activist."
    I would like to del the word selflessly, rather it may be added that for the sake of the truth-- satyagraha. Every RTI activist is a satyanusandhani .

    alternate names for RTI activists- RTI member, RTI seeker, RTI ambassador,
    RTI Governor, depending upon the members level of activity -similar to various coloured belts in Karate.
