Before you leave a comment below, notice the trail of answers. You will see more advocates of ‘No’ than ‘Yes’.
‘No Bra Day’ is not an easy pick for a country like India. We are still in a stage of cultural evolvement. In our country, the observance is expected to draw more flak from the social police than getting the desired attention.
The day is actually meant to spread breast cancer awareness. But, each one of us know well what will it rather attract – More of ogles than understanding! ‘No Bra’ will turn into something like ‘no holds barred’ in a country like ours.
For example, imagine a street campaign of young girls out on such a day without their body-hugger! The answer must have played in your mind by now. You know what they will attract!
Eve-teasers, oglers, treat to the lecherous souls! That’s it!
Next thing that you will see is the news on different channels policing the existence of ‘the big B’ more than the cancer attached to it!
Come next, there will be parents who will first of all change the channel to avoid any discussion on the same and soon after, in private discussions, will rant on the younger generation on their style of doing things.
On the other side, the urban lot, as it always does, will start an online campaign…a trend onTwitter(More people enjoying the so-called taboo topic than deducing the output).
Very next, you will see a surging number of RTs, likes and favorites on social media platforms!
And then, next day, hot debate splashed in newspapers.
Wait! I missed the interesting part! The statements of politicians and moral police officers (The Shiv Sena and TheHindu Mahasabha clan)! Guess what they will say!
And, the series won’t end here. Next, there will we an online war waged against them with many celebrities condemning their thoughts.
Next, a U-turn by the same politicians upon the statement made by them!
Then, opposition’s counter statements!
Then more news channels running a drill with debates over the statements made by biggies and some discussing whether there should be a ……..… or not………… (Yes, that’s the way they will discuss, socially reserved, you see!)
Next, discussion will go public!
Further, individual groups will or will not buy the idea!
