Instead of suffering through yet another inane session of celebrity sighting in a droll slide show of who wore what (I'm talking at you, Huff-Po,) let's focus on some REAL star power, and put the spotlight on some people who ACTUALLY deserve some headlines.
Case in point: this gorgeous gaggle of pink vigilantes otherwise known as the Gulabi Gang (or Pink Ladies) who enact justice when their village police fail to do so. Led by a fearless woman, Sampat Devi, a former government health worker, these pink ladies show up to extract justice when a man beats on, or abandons a wife. Crimes against women, are often overlooked by the authorities, so the Pink Ladies take the law in their own hands, often forcefully, and with bamboo sticks. "If they don't take her back and keep her well, we will resort to other measures," Devi says.
Clad in bright flamingo pink silk saris, this boisterous band of women definitely inspire, and by so much more than what they are merely wearing. However, you'll appreciate the powerful statement of their bright and bold uniforms, and while I've never been a fan of pink before, these women have got me seeing this hue with a whole new respectful view. With their fierce and brave brand of justice, the Gulabi Gang of Banda have definitely got me tickled about pink.
