In less than a week from zero to 19,000 plus. That's how strongly the Pink Chaddi Campaign has grown. Humour has trumped high-handed moral posturing. The protesters are delighted with the success and Mutalik's response to send pink saris in return `with love'. The point that Mutaliks of the world should use "non-violent methods to get his point across," has hit the bull's-eye.
"The response has been overwhelming. At the collection centre, there was a lot of chaos with too many people wanting to drop off the gifts. So, we decided that people can send them on their own," says Nitin M, a communications teacher at a Bangalore college, who is coordinating the campaign here. Their blog says "We greatly appreciate this and hope he (Mutalik) continues to choose similar, non-violent methods to get his point across, just as we have chosen to be non-violent and loving in response to the brutality of the attacks on lovers and women in Mangalore and other parts of Karnataka."
