Will Indian brands ever take a stand against real social evils?
When George Floyd was murdered, many global brands came out of their comfort zones and took a stand against racial discrimination, changed their processes, branding and messaging to show solidarity with the movement #BlackLivesMatters. But in India, when thousands of country’s daughters are subject to gruesome acts of rape, murder, lynching etc., you rarely see any brand standing up and raising the voice. What stops them? Is profit everything? Will you buy from such a brand? Does #WomenLivesMatter or Migrants or Unemployment matter to brands? Will the new generation buy from brands who don’t have a purpose towards the society?
