Last Thursday, at about midnight, a group of friends created The Consortium of Pubgoing, Loose and Forward Women. Started as a group on the popular social networking site, Facebook, it has kicked up quite a storm. With over 3,000 members in the group, there are men too, the group has bloomed into a full-fledged campaign to send the Sri Ram Sene pink chaddis on Valentine’s Day. Taken up almost as a joke, but not quite, these ladies decided to hit back at right wing groups who were capitalising on fear. The Consortium has created enough of a stir, in just four days, on the Internet, and people from all parts of the country are getting enthused to join the campaign as their way of showing contempt.

Nisha Susan, mediaperson and one of the founders confesses it has been a very hectic twenty-four hours dealing with the sudden unexpected surge of interest. The collected chaddis — she estimates the number to be 500 “at the very least” — will be displayed on Friday the 13th at a press conference in Bengaluru.
