Well that’s not what the campaign is actually called. However, that is what is getting the campaign all the attention.

 

Preface:

  1. Facebook link
  2. Blank noise
  3. Rediff intv -Can locate this.. will update soon( this is the intv of the person behind the campaign)

 

Brief:

  1. The plan is to send loads of pink colored chaddi’s to Ram Sena on Valentines day.
  2. Step out and drink on Valentine’s day

 

I have a few issues with the idea:

Firstly, the plan urges us to send them underwears. Underwears, mind you, not jeans, not kurtas. Evidently, this is done with the intention of embarrassing the RS. I don’t see how embarrassing it would do us any good. If nothing else, it might just enrage the Ram Seniks all the more. It might also give them another reason to justify their actions-agar baaki log humare saath gand macha rahe hain to hum badla hi le rahe hain.

It is almost instinctive for us to support anyone who opposes anything we oppose. Its like negative of negative is positive (ala dushman ka dushamn, dost). What we tend to forget is that opposing a wrong action with another incorrect one is not right.

 

Second, why should any one of us care about the Ram Sena. Why should I do what it wants me to do or what it doesn’t want me to do? Should I rather have a mind of my own and continue with my own plans.

This plan, of doing the opposite of what the Ram Sena wants me to do, gets Ram Sena popularity. In all probability this is what it is looking for in the first place. For all you know Ram Seniks are doing this hoping for some media primetime which could help RS gain momentum for the forthcoming elections.

 

Another little thing that I don’t understand is why people compare PC to Gandhigiri.

Pink Chaddi is NOT Gandhigiri.

Gandhigiri requires the victim to be polite to the aggressor such that the aggressor realizes his mistake. PC is an attempt to humiliate the Ram Sena.

Anyways, just because something does not fall under Gandhigiri does not prove that it is wrong. I mean if u believe in PC, just do it.

 

P.S:-

Since I have no better ideas to stop the Ram Sena I request all of you to visit the website and if the plan goes well with your ideology, go on send the pink Chaddis.
