Join FAKING HAPPINESS CAMPAIGN in wishing Dr Prannoy Roy of NDTV on his birthday, on 15th Oct 2013 , and hope he withdraws VEDANTA form the our girls our child campaign , in the name of TRUTH, as he claims for his 24 x7 channel .
Faking happiness campaign came into being last year when Vedanta launched its first CSR social media campaign called khushi- creating happiness, which was a complete sham and facade.
“Creating Happiness” – a series of short films about Vedanta that aired on 37 TV channels – was an advertising campaign conceived by India‘s ad guru Piyush Pandey of Ogilvy & Mather. It was launched last year with a technically slick film that focused on the apparent happiness of Binno, a small girl in Rajasthan, when she discovers that she can get an education from the anganwadis (child day care centres) set up by the company.
The company announced an initiative for students at media and film institutes to produce short films about the company that would then be judged in competition by a heavy-weight jury consisting of Pandey, actor Gul Panag and noted director Shyam Benegal who had championed “art cinema.” (Benegal’s early films realistically depicted feudal conditions in rural India).
Following our campaign Benegal and Panag withdrew from the jury saying they were unaware of Vedanta’s role in the competition. We had our own competition .” Blog posts, short films, cartoons and spoofs poured in on Facebook and YouTube that charged Vedanta with falsehoods.
Once again when NDTV launched ourgirlsourpride campaign we are back in action .
