Blood Relations

November 2011

To demonstrate the power of creativity in a troubled region, this unique event brought together Palestinans and Israelis who have lost family members in the conflict to donate their blood, side by side, as a symbolic act of healing. This project came about as a result of BBR Saatchi & Saatchi's challenge to creative minds around the world to present ideas to bring these people together.

Ever since the raise of aids, I found blood something scary. But it's an extreme gesture that does symbolize the solution well I think. It's nice to finally see the Impossible Brief being solved. (Only the brief though, not the problem I think).

The spirit of this idea is strong. I'll remain cynical and dubious about whether it can affect the real underlying problem behind the conflict. But I believe it will have an impact on those it touches. Bravo.

Like many across the world, I also participated in this creative challenge and came up with a creative solution called “Blood For Peace”. I sent my idea on 2nd December which was uploaded on the impossible brief facebook page on 4th December.

“Blood For Peace” was aimed at creating a strong bond of brotherhood between the common masses of these conflicting nation through exchange of blood. From Blood Donation Camps to 24X7 Bloodline number to Thanksgiving Card from the receiver, I had laid down a step-by-step execution process for the idea.
Please scroll down to December 4th to view my entry.

To my utter surprise it wasn’t even shortlisted. But today I am heartbroken to see an almost similar idea as the winning entry. I have nothing against the winners. But going by the impossible brief fb page, I was the first one to upload the “Blood For Peace” entry. The “Blood Relation” idea didn’t even feature in the list before December 4th.

Dear Suman, We received an idea about mutual blood bank \ donation for the first time
from Jean-Christophe Royer from BETC Paris, on 13 July 2010.
We also received a similar idea from 2 more wonderful people including you.
Great minds think alike.
Thank you and peace for all.

But we do kill mosquitoes, although they carry our blood in their veins. What a silly idea.
Man you gotta love Cannes. It has turned advertising agencies worldwide into charitable organizations and peace corps.
