Petition launched to fine people covering Pasoori
"I haven't seen my girlfriend's photos on my newsfeed for the last 50 days because it's flooded with Pasoori covers. I had to visit her profile to see her latest photos. Could you imagine the pain I have been experiencing since the launch of Pasoori of Coke Studio Pakistan?" a boy from Dhoka spoke out about his pain.
It' has not even been two months since Pasoori was released, but millions (statisticians suspect that the figure might be billions) of covers of Pasoori have already been made, 95 percent of which is from Chapasthan. Being fed up with the constant covering of Pasoori, a boy named Shams started a petition to draw the attention of the authority concerned to pass a brand new law that would stop a person from making another unnecessary cover of Pasoori by imposing a Tk 5 lakh fine.
The petition has been greeted with mass approval. "Finally, someone came to the rescue! I want the authorities to pass the law promptly. Cannot take it anymore!" a Facebook celebrity annoyed by the covers of Pasoori said.
"One of my school friends who did not talk much, let alone sing, made multiple covers of Pasoori, including in English, Bangla and even Sylheti and Noakhailla versions. I think the fine should be above 10 lakh," Antara, another Pasoori cover sufferer, said in despair.
Some have come up with a new idea to stop people's obsession of making Pasoori covers. Munna, who failed several times to cover Pasoori, said, "Why don't we appoint Will Smith to stop cover-men and cover-women? Let's hire him to slap anyone who covers Pasoori again. If we give him Tk 3 lakh for every slap, we will save Tk 2 lakh!"
Out of 180 million people of Chapasthan, perhaps 150 million have already made covers of Pasoori. Satireday's tired correspondent talked to one of those cover-men. "Sir, you sang really well. But, do you know the meaning of Pasoori?"
"I don't like to spend time finding the meaning. I can make another cover by saving that meaning-searching time," he said.
