IT’S COOL. It’s cheeky. It’s clever. I’m talking about the Pink Chaddi Campaign. Women all over the country are gathering pink chaddis and sending them to Muthalik as a Valentine’s Day present. The plan is to strike disgust in the teensy little non-heart of our chief moral guardian — and to loudly assert the fact that the bogeymen of morality, dignity, chastity etc cannot be used to take our freedom away. Gifting panties may seem like a softer option than dung bombing his house but it makes a strong statement on our collective lack of ‘shame’, the one quality he’s trying so desperately to instill in us.
And apparently, the organisers have planned a press conference to announce this because the point is also to generate talk. By cleverly using the media, these hoodlums have been spreading their propaganda far and wide. Time to pay them back in their own coin, what?
So, pitch in with your pantie power. The collection point is:
The Pink Chaddi Campaign,
C/O Alternate Law Forum,
122/4 Infantry Road
(opposite Infantry Wedding House)

UPDATE — ALF is no longer accepting chaddis. You need to send them directly to Mr Muthalik:
Oh, as an aside, female underwear has been used as ammunition before.
