img Tata Tea's new Jaago Re campaign urges India to pre-act, not react

Tata Tea brand is back again with its iconic Jaago Re campaign – Jaago Re Version 2.0. The new campaign 'Alarm Bajne se Pehle Jaago Re' is urging people to stop reacting after tragedies hit and instead start 'Pre-acting', and prevent these issues from happening. Tata Tea is encouraging 'Preactivism', a behavior of timely activism which happens before, to prevent unfortunate things.

 

The film brings alive the need for 'Preactivism' in a hard-hitting, pertinent manner. The female protagonist drives this conversation with a compelling storyline that showcases the current reactive nature of people - rallying for an issue once it has happened or taking to on-ground and social media after something bad has happened.  Why do we get comfortable with reacting and not pre-acting on issues?

The Jaago Re 2.0 ad film highlights how we, as a country, need to change our behavior towards social issues. We are living in a time where people gather in huge numbers on-ground and online when outraged by an incident. However, to push our consciousness further, we need to create a new behavior within activism. We need to ignite the spirit of prevention so that our society can evolve into a new reality; where it takes measures to intercept warning signs and prevent disasters. We need to wake up before the ring of the alarm – Alarm Bajne Se Pehle Jaago Re!

Overall, the Jaago Re 2.0 campaign will draw attention to the need to pre-act. This campaign is not about the issues. Issues are only familiar examples; this campaign is focused on landing the thought of 'Preactivism' and facilitating a change in current behavior. The campaign will have multiple phases with the current phase focusing on seeding this new thought and making 'Preactivism' a mainstream conversation. In the subsequent phases, Tata Tea will continue to drive 'Preactivism' through on-ground initiatives, walking-the-talk as a brand that is rallying for change.

"Whenever I hear the word curry, I'm filled with a longing for spicy hot food with the fragrance of cumin, cloves and cinnamon. I see deep red colours from lots of Kashmiri chillis, tinged with a suggestion of yellow from turmeric. I think of the tandoor oven, and slightly scorched naan shining with ghee and garlic.  When Indians talk of their food, they talk about their life. To understand this country, you need to understand curry."Rick Stein
