The Pink Chaddi Campaign

I didn’t think I was going to put up the “Blog of the Week” so soon. But emergencies call for drastic measures.

"The Pink Chaddi Campaign kicked off on 5 February 2009 to oppose the Sri Ram Sena. The campaign is growing exponentially (4,500 at this point in the life of our Consortium of Pub-going, Loose and Forward Women) and that is not surprising. Most women in this country have enough curbs on their lives without a whole new franchise cashing in with their bully-boy tactics. Of course, a lot of men have joined the group as well."

And so my friends, here it is "The Blog of the Week":

“The Pink Chaddi Campaign”

p.s: For my dear non Indian friends who are wondering what chaddi means, ummmm......it means underwear.
And if U are wondering why, this is the reason. I have already put up a serious petition to oust these so called Moral Police on behalf of Piper 2 days back. Now its time to have some fun at their expense.


  1. What a read!Hilarious yet jolting!I need to check if there are pubs here in Doha.But there are some special events being organised in various hotels here on the 14th.But mailing chaddis to Ram Sene seems likequite an idea.I may have some pink chaddis of my daughter's.But since it is mentioned in the post that we should not segregate our views based on colours,I will send some black and white chaddis too.Let those hooligans get the message in black&white!!LOL!

  2. I find this thing really silly.. not very amused by it!

  3. I have this up on my blog too. I wished I had more time. I would have couriered some of my victoria secrets :)

  4. A friend related this story to me. They were posted in the US and my friend's husband was the team lead for a certain project. He was called to the police station for verifying the details of one of his employee. Apparently the employee's neighbours called the cops on hearing noises from his house. They arrested him immediately for assaulting his wife. At the police station, the guy was baffled at why he was arrested for this. He explained to the cops that wife-beating was part of the Indian culture. Can u believe that lame SOB??
    I hate such people. If pub going is not part of our culture, surely beating up women is not. So if this bunch of idiots were trying to prove a point, they should have adopted a Gandhian way maybe, which surely is part of our culture. I am very sure that I want to be a part of any group that embarrasses and makes a public mockery of such self-styled groups.

  5. hah! ridiculous, just left a comment on A's post on this as well
    no comments, i will just drink up to this..
    hugs, yet another pubgoing loose and forward woman! :/

  6. Whereas I totally agree the beatings have to stop, I am just not sure this is the best move...

  7. I love this thing! :) I`m sure this will be more effective than anything petition! :)

  8. i so agree with this campaign...it got them the attention it requires...this is the modern girls gandhigiri!

  9. I support freedom of expression and gender equality, but i dont think that this campaign is a good idea, except that politicising the issue.

  10. Wow, i never knew there were so many pubgoing loose and forward women!!! Where have I been? I've been missing all the fun :P

    But jokes apart, this seems like a brilliantly silly idea. Hope the sena get the message. This campaign seriously seems to be picking pace.

  11. This is such a brilliant, and most importantly, non-violent way of getting back. And somebody has to, coz the govt here isn't doing a damn. Just remembered a quote from the great P Chidu I saw on a news channel a couple of days ago which goes: The Ram Sene have already crossed their limits; I am keeping a close eye on them.

    Well, hell, if they've already crossed their limits, why the f**k haven't you already cracked down on them????

  12. Pink Chaddi is gaining momentum. Their pics on Facebook are quite hilarious. But I fear we are merely giving the Senas more mud to sling at us.

    I go to pubs sometimes with my husband and friends. Sometimes I drink, most times I don't (I get all giggly). It's a lot of fun actually. I write reviews on them for lifestyle magazines. I am a little worried about being dragged out of one and getting beaten up. What will I use for protection: a flash of my Pink Chaddi? Well that would cover the "loose and forward" part. I think we should be allowed to carry guns. Just us women. A pepper spray can just won't do any more.
