Wish you all the Best.
By the way, Ram Sena’s name should be changed to “Vanar Sena” as ‘ vanars’ are pink bottomed monkeys and so the pink chuddies will nicely and picturesquely match their bottoms.
Bottoms up to that ! Cheers !!

You have an affectionate, loving nature, which makes you sympathetic and understanding. You may lack willpower and show weakness when you cannot control affairs of the heart. You need a great deal of support from others and can be childlike in behavior. You must learn to accept and love yourself. If you become more self-reliant you will attract and give out the feelings of warmth and love you desire.

Pink is the colour of happiness and is sometimes seen as lighthearted.Brighter pinks are youthful, fun and exciting while vibrant pinks have the same high energy as red. They are sensual and passionate without being too aggressive.Toning down the passion of red with the purity of white results in the softer pinks that are associated with romance and the blush of a young woman’s cheeks.It’s not surprising that when giving or receiving flowers pink blossoms are a favorite.For women who are often overworked and overburdened, an attraction to pink may speak to a desire for the more carefree days of childhood.

12.More,still more,on Pink :
Combining the purity of white and the the passion of red gives us pink – the colour of gentle love and desire. Pink is the colour associated with baby girls, and is the colour of many newborn animals. Pink signifies gentleness, and new birth.
The rose, as the archetypal flower has endured in its beauty and significance for hundreds of years. What is it about a rose, irrespective of colour and size that makes it so special, so touching? In addition to its beauty, the rose is perhaps the only flower that has so many diverse meanings. The meaning of a pink rose is as beautiful and as graceful as the delicate blossom.
Where there are no overtones of love, pink rose seeks to communicate gratitude – a very beautiful and touching way to say a simple “Thank you”! The pink rose when used to express gratitude, appreciation and recognition is a source of joy and delight.
The pink rose, though beautiful to behold and wonderful to receive also has its share of unfavorable overtones. This negative meaning of the pink rose found it’s beginning in the ancient Roman Mythology. Apollo turned Rhoanthe into a pink rose when she unfairly tried to become the protectress of women. In this scheme of events, pink roses depict pain, long standing suffering and death.But the pink rose is generally looked upon as the flower of sweet thoughts and gentle emotions. It indicates an affection that may turn into deeper love. Innocent love that has not yet blossomed into passion, a deep affection that has not yet reached its pinnacle is what the pink rose expresses.Pink roses please all our senses. They look beautiful, smell great and have a depth of meaning in their gentle blooms. The next time you need to express joy, affection, pride, gratitude, a gentle romance or even good luck, use a pink rose. This glorious flower in its beauty and delicate shade expresses innocence, and a simple joy in that innocence. As opposed to red roses that speak of deep passion, the pink roses are a gentle reminder of affections not yet awakened, the gentle beginning of a wonderful relationship.
Dear Readers,I began this piece with “Pink Chuddies” and after a long but enjoyable journey of discovery about Pink,I ended up with “Pink Roses” which is a befitting end,as Valentine’s Day is near. I’ll end here.
Jatinder saheb, in every response or composition you try to reach the summit. Thanks for your efforts and the critical mind. In the present case, I am least interested who goes to pub to drink or to the bed to sink… but the whole affair is nausiating: the Rama Sena on one side and the liberals on the other side. This can happen only in India, and not anywhere else in the world. A section of Indians with garbs of modernity do not mind girls to visit pubs, drink and dance, but the same people will demand dowry, hide their women under veils and beat up their wards if they propose to marry across their community.
These liberals keep quiet when the Buddha relics were damaged in Bamiyan mountains in Afghanistan and Swat valley in Pakistan, when the protesting monks in Tibet and Myanmar were hit by shoes and bayonets, when a 100-year old temple in Malaysia was razed to the ground or very recently Yoga was banned in Croatia, Indonesia and Malaysia, Ganesh appeared on chappals, Lakshmi was printed on undergarments.
We in India very well know what is love, the significance of St.Valentine and what lies behind the ‘chhudi’. Do you remember the song, “Chholi ke pichhe kya hai…” Now a lyricist will compose “Chhudi ke picche kya hai..” and it will get international award as usual.

Dear Mallick ji
Thanks for your lovely response.Yes I agree that we have two extreme sets of people who have their own yardsticks for classifying events into good or bad for the society or the Bhartiya Sanskiti, as they tout. I took a light dig at the Consortium’s efforts to gather public response on the issue. If you care to visit their blog today you will see the degree of response to the cause. Yes, ‘Chaddi key peechchey kya hai’ may most likely be a topper among the hit parades. I believe in joining the fun until it lasts and then wait for another such caper for my next dose of inspiration and spice to enliven up the day. Any way, I hope other like-minded Muse-icians will join the fun bandwagon. Such humour in everyday life, according to me, makes life liveable!

I checked up the campaign’s blog site. It has so far received 726 postings from supporters (till around 12.45 in the afternoon today ). I think things are hotting up.Today’s papers also carry more news on this subject. Muthalik intends to gift pink sarees to the women campaigners. See how the cookies crumble on V-Day!
