Alarm Bajne Se Pehle Jaago Re
Earlier this, year, the campaign titled ‘Alarm Bajne Se Pehle Jaago Re’ urged people to stop reacting after they are hit by tragedies, instead to start ‘pre-acting’. The motive of the campaign was to promote the idea of pre-activism – a timely behavior to prevent the occurrence of unfortunate things.
A message for all parents:
In line with their ‘Alarm Bajne Se Pehle Jaago Re’, Tata Tea came out with another film this year, which showed that how small gestures from the parent’s side, can go a long way towards relieving the immense pressure students undergo these days. The film identifies the growing issue of student depression and suicide, and urges parents to ‘pre-act’ and do their bit to prevent these avoidable tragedies.
Power of 49
Just ahead of the General Elections in 2014, Tata Tea came out with two campaigns reminding women about their voting rights and duties.

Leveraging, Jaago Re platform, Shahrukh Khan, as an actor made a commitment, a small change (choti shuruaat) to make a positive difference to women in the film industry. He pledged that he would put the names of the actresses in his movies, before his own.
