Will Cola be damned?

Aamir’s championing a social cause –
Is it against brand endorsement laws?
His Narmada crusade
Has left Coke disarrayed
They are fervently praying he withdraws!

HT 18/04/06: Activist Aaamir Khan troubles Coke - Coca-Cola sought a meeting with Aamir Khan when they saw him all over the papers championing the cause of Narmada, even as Arundhati Roy publicly challenged him to first stop endorsing the cola. Aamir disclosed this at a press conference, saying he will meet Coke representatives to “understand” the situation. “If there is a problem, we will try and find a solution and if talks fail, I will end the contract,” said crusader Aamir.

    This lady Medha Patkar
    Is really so 'hat kar'
    Her Narmada Bachao Andolan
    Has stirred such a revolution
    That Aamir supports her 'bilkul

    I appreciate Aamir's principled stand on the issue.
