The Domino Effect: One Powerful Voice Can Inspire A Movement

The Domino Effect: One Powerful Voice Can Inspire A Movement

The slightest touch can cause a ripple large enough to pull in the voices of the masses. The ‘domino’ effect, find out more about it and how it is able to create powerful movements with one voice.

A domino effect is the cumulative effect produced when one event sets off a chain of similar events. Life is a Domino Effect. Everything in life is a domino effect but on a much larger scale. There is an invisible force of balance, what goes around comes around, it is just a matter of time- when. One event will trigger something else, which will influence someone else’s life, which will in turn influence another and so on. It becomes a cycle.

There are many great examples in India of domino effects. One of them would be India’s fight for independence. British control of the South Asian Subcontinent began as a trading venture in the early seventeenth century with the English East India Company, which later became a managing agent for the British government. Following an uprising in 1857 (the “Mutiny,” the British called it), India came under direct administration by the British Empire. The British colonial government relied on the cooperation of Indian elites and soldiers for formal control of the government and the population.

Mahatma Gandhi launched and directed three major campaigns in the Indian Independence Movement: noncooperation in 1919-1922, the civil disobedience movement and the Salt Satyagraha of 1930-1931, and the Quit India movement from about 1940-1942. The Salt Satyagraha: Gandhi decided to launch a campaign with an act of civil disobedience involving the British salt tax. The salt tax was a political issue that had a personal impact on all Indians, especially among the poor.

Salt was a basic necessity for survival and its taxation was viewed as an example of British arrogance. On 12 March Gandhi set out with 78 members of his ashram on a 241-mile (390-kilometre) march from Sabarmati, Gujarat, to the coastal village of Dandi. Greeted by large crowds along the way, some of whom joined the march, Gandhi communicated his message of Indian independence, the injustice of the salt tax, and the need to spin to promote a boycott of British cloth and thus attack the core of the British Empire’s exploitative relationship with India, which was the textile industry.

A Global Movement

#metoo

Another great example would be the very recent India’s #MeToo movement. 2018 saw the rise of the #MeToo movement in India. Inspired by a global campaign against sexual harassment and assault, women across the spectrum opened up and shared their stories about abuse by men in positions of power. What followed was a series of posts by other women who shared their experiences with the world. From actors, film directors to advertising top guns, artists and writers and politicians, women professionals called out obnoxious behavior at the workplace. From unwanted attention in the office to sexual innuendos on the film set, there were many kinds of allegations that surfaced.

A journalist who had accused the former editor of inviting her to his hotel room for a job interview and behaving inappropriately found herself at the receiving end of a 41-page defamation suit. Two years later, a Delhi court acquitted her of all charges. Taking into consideration the difficulties that women face in filing harassment complaints, the court said, “The right of reputation cannot be protected at the cost of dignity.” It was hailed as a landmark judgment and celebrated by women across the country. “This shows us that women can withstand any pushbacks … That it’s not that easy to shut us down and silence our truths,” said the journalist.

Like in other places across the world, the #MeToo movement generated discussion in India about sexual harassment within the workplace, particularly in the entertainment and film industries. As an immediate aftereffect, more women were encouraged to speak up against their harassers, both publicly and anonymously. While many of the accused faced some loss of projects or assignments, most of them have been able to find work and acceptance in the industry. Other public personalities have been able to gradually resume their professional pursuits after an initial period of laying low and staying out of the public sphere. However, making these discussions part of the public discourse itself has been a huge victory for survivors.
