    I had never written a petition so don't know ow it looks like.... need help of you guys in trimming and making it appealing... then I am going to post this on change.org.... lets save our Vikrant.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    INS Vikrant ( (formerly HMS Hercules ) was a Majestic class aircraft carrier of the Indian Navy. She played a key role in enforcing the naval blockade on East Pakistan during the Indo-Pakistan War of 1971.

    Vikrant was India's only carrier for over twenty years. She was formally decommissioned on 31 January 1997. Following her decommissioning, Vikrant was marked for preservation as a museum ship in Mumbai, although a lack of funding has prevented progress on the ship's conversion for this role. Similarly, speculation that the ship would be made into a training ship in 2006 came to nothing. Vikrant is open to the public by the Indian Navy for short periods, but as of April 2010, the Government of Maharashtra has been unable to find an industrial partner to operate the museum on a permanent, long-term basis.
    She is the only World War II-era British-built aircraft carrier to be preserved as a museum.
    INS Vikrant is the symbol of Indian victory over Pakistan in 1971 and it is responsible for freedom of Bangladesh. This ship has been server India and defended it for decades and for its service it is ordered to cane into a museum to honor this sip and the memories related with it. Now government wants to scrape this war hero for lack of funds and potential for fund raising.
    Government should review its design to scrape this sip for honouring the memory of brave sailors of Indian Navy and should o ahead with converting this to a museum.

    If we don't raise a voice, they'll surely scrap it. We can at least try to stop this - we can sign the petition & post the link to petition on our FB & Twitter accounts & make govt change their decision.

    See this: Stop Demolishing the 1000 year old temple - Need your valuable signature

    The petition was signed by many IDF members too & the demolition was prevented. :tup:

    Go to Indian Facebook groups that have a lot of fans, and send the message to the page administrator with the link to the petition asking him/them for help...
    Getting 100 is the first step, wen you exceed it then next step will be 200 or 500 or 1000 (i forgot the exact number) anyway it grows as the amount of supporter grows...

    Actually when you exceed 100 signatures, then thy will let you chose your own amount of signatures.
