The Pink Chaddi Campaign
In colleges and grad school parties, you often meet these guys who have too much hair gel, wear clothes that shine, and who dance like medieval maniacs to bhangra music. Over time it becomes easy to stereo type these guys as mindless, tasteless, bhangra dancing people who are only fit to work as clerks in a 7-11 store. They are especially a nuisance while watching cricket matches (or playing cricket) as they know of no other analysis outside of shouting "chuck da phatte" or "c'mon sachin" at odd times. The absence of creativity in them is directly proportional the bulge of their bank balance and shine in their gaudy bracelets. Imagine what would happen if they were required to do something intelligent.
That brings us to the point. The reasonably publicized campaign to send some political outfit in Karnataka pink chaddi's (to protest against that party's recent pub attack) is the stupidest campaign I have ever seen in recent memory. Among all protests done in the post-cave man era, this should be considered the least creative and most idiotic. It can only be created by these bhangra type chics whose only purpose in life is to fail 8th standard at least once, join some useless sociology type course in an arts college, dance to silly music, pay hefty dowry and marry a guy who owns a cloth shop. It is hard to understand what these pink chaddis indicate and what the general public or this political party should understand from this gesture. I am actually afraid to hear their explanation on what this all means.
Somehow it feels as if this political party and the stupid "Loose & Forward Pub going women" deserve each other.
Now don't get me wrong. I am not opposed to either love or sex. It is this "*.day" thing that is patently stupid. People who are opposed to the whole "Day" thing (from stupid "Valentine's" to a much stupider "Friendship" thingie) must be disappointed that a party trying to ape PMK has hijacked the anti-day cause for a religious/political purpose. This stupid party has ruined the anti-Day efforts by isolating Valentine's day from the rest. What about Mother's/Father's/Frienedship & Athimber day? Should they remain because they don't conflict "Indian moral traditional values"? This isolation has ensured that any semblance of intellignce in our society is sure to dissappear. Thanks to the Loose & Forward Pub going idiots, this party has shot to prominence. Their prospects of wining the next election must be very high. People who vote will not remember (or even be aware of) the "Chaddi" campaign. This "bhangra" type youth have no vote and will not vote even if they had a chance. The sex-starved people who vote (especially those in the IT sector) should clearly be in favor of Muthalaik. The math is simple.
