Indian student sues for £100,000 compensation for hurt feelings after box of crayons contained a pink one labelled skin colour
An Indian law student is demanding £100,000 compensation after claiming that his feelings had been hurt by a 'racist' pink children's crayon sold by one of India's largest stationery manufacturers. Chirayu Jain, 19, who is studying at the National Law School of India University said he was shocked when he opened up the box of crayons to discover that the lighter pink crayon had been labelled 'skin'. In the complaint he said: 'On opening the box, I discovered that the 'special skin crayon' was of a shade that did not match my own skin colour.
'This can only be explained by the fact that the 'special skin crayon' which is part of the product line is either defective or labelled misleadingly or both.
'It is both insensitive and inconsiderate to label one particular shade as 'skin colour' in a market where a majority of the consumers have skin tones that are either dark or at least different from the shade described as 'skin' by the company.'
He said he had contacted the maker of the 'Colorama' crayons - Hindustan Pencils Ltd - and had demanded an explanation but said he had not been given one.

Maybe he wants them to rename it to “Racist White Pig”
Now it is labeled "peach".
What is that, 73￠?
Apparently we all have to sue
Obviously, the skin color doesn’t refer refer to HIS skin. Probably just matching the skin from some scalped American settler.
I mean, douchebag
Does your diploma come in a box of Cracker Jacks?
Oops, I said "Cracker", probably started another suit...
the “skin” colored crayon had been Made in India!...anyone catch that?
Are we confusing different varieties of Indians here?
Let’s hope he’s run out of town on a rail. More likely though, a call from the president and a future congressional run for ‘crayon justice’.
You do not understand this occurred in India?
Counter sue; curry. That is all.
So how many boxes of crayons do they normally go through at this law school?
= = = = = = = = = = = = = =
In today’s litigious world, this could be construed as a ‘loaded question’.
I thought he was foreign exchange. My bad. I actually think this will get less traction in India than it would here.
Law student feeling cocky. He’ll learn.
Get a life, Mister.
Apparently a quick learner .. not yet graduated, and the little maggot is already a boil on society’s ass.
I hope he does, that gives it the much needed “Bluto Blutarsky” touch
I'm shocked that they use Crayons at the National Law School of India University...OK, I lied, I'm not shocked.
I see they have a the professionally offended there too.
Thanks. It was kind of a joke....
Guess how many things I see every day now in the US which offend me. Yet I have not sued anyone. E.g. I could sue Lowe’s for offending me with their very prominent kow-towing to illegal aliens in Spanish.
Just label the black, peach, pink, brown, red, and yellow crayons as “Skin.
They need to have a crayon marked “Indian”.
whats a 19 yo college student doing playing with crayons ???
Building a resumé.
And these are the folks the Open Borders/Free Trade crowd wants to bring in to replace American tech and IT workers...
Palms and fingernail beds seem to be in the pinkish range no matter the ethnicity.
The guy’s just prejudiced against pink people.
A new box of crayons to use in law school??
I really mean it.
As absurd as the case is, to the law student, if he won the suit, he’s guaranteed to make it big in his future career.
He’s a law student. If he could free the most obvious criminal on Earth using his skills in a court of law, he automatically becomes the most in-demand attorney.
Greater the absurdity of a successfully proven claim, greater will be the return to the claimant.
When I was growing up, Crayola called this color “flesh”, but they changed that many moons ago, I think.
My question is why a 19-year-old student is using crayons.
Fill out a Hurt Feelings Report and report to the chaplain.
Maybe he thinks too much in some ways. Maybe he started wondering as to what natural thing his own skin color matches.
