Walk, pause, ponder… ?
G-strings never popped out of the denims. Cleavage count wasn't much. At the most, the 'bold' statement was made by a pair of shorts that rested slightly above the knees. The slut walk in Delhi was unlike the ones undertaken in Toronto, London, Boston but still put the message across effectively — clothes don't make a woman. Those who think they do should read the placards that rallyists held - A gentleman is never provoked! A sexual offender doesn't need provocation! It's ok to be sexy but not a sexist. A skimpy dress doesn't mean yes and the Delhi Slut Walk, post the success of Bhopal Slut Walk, was an effort to highlight the issue.

Ever since the protest took off from Canada, worldwide ‘slut walks’ are being organised to highlight the issue.

Short Game - The Pitch
The Pitch is a lofted shot played from varied distances which can be from around the green up to a full wedge shot. The main difference between the pitch and the chip is the position of the left wrist at impact and thereby the way the club hits the ball. In a chip shot the club is in a de-lofted position and the leading edge hits the ground. The wrist is in a bowed position at impact. In a pitch the left wrist is flat at impact and the bounce of the club catches the ground, which helps it to skid and slide under the ball and give the ball loft. In a pitch the hands will be in line with the club (picture 5) while in the chip the hands are leading the club.
