Whats Wrong With The Pink Campaign ...

By now everyone, and i mean everyone who has access to internet and/or electronic media would have come across this unique campaign to shame Mr.Muthalik and his henchmen by sending him "pink underwears".And Mr.Muthalik has decided that he will be sending sarees as return gift.A win-win situation for both sides one might think.But I feel that two wrongs don't make a right and somehow this campaign risks reducing what happened in Mangalore to a question of tradition versus modernity which it is not.It was all about individual's freedom of choice.If one wants to go to a pub ,irrespective of one's gender,one must have the freedom to do so .But surely we should not make a virtue out of pub-going.I myself go to pubs once in a while but i see no virtue/vice per se in that.In fact all this campaign is ideal fodder for news channels who have a lot to answer for making larger than life figures out of non-entities like Muthalik and Raj Thackeray.

You know I so much hate these online camapign ... bull shit man!!!

Why and what purpose they solve?

U remeber for Jessica lal... there were thousands of group formedpleading to punish the gulity.... but system was failing each time.. the witness were still reluctant to tell the truth... until and unless they surrendered... yup I agree its was pressure... but still... system never ever could change with these camapign....

and now as in the current case u said... it ahs now turned to modern vs traditional/ cultaral fight.... :(((

how pink panties are modern and sarees are traditional, I for one fail to understand. what is the whole point? why not send him a uber cool calvin klein thong instead? everything has become cheap brother. you need to keep your head on the right track and not get carried away with shit like this. we are missing the whole point here. where is democracy?
