After his transition from Narendra Modi to PM Modi, the man has aced the fame game all over the world. People probably have never noticed an Indian Prime Minister like they’ve welcomed and honoured Modi ever before. And why not, PM Modi deserves it after all the trips he has been making back and forth and the speeches that are leaving a significant mark on people. Remember when he quoted Star Wars?! But this time, we are writing about him for a reason that is completely different. He’s in the news for erm… let’s just say a strange reason. And it’s not really him, it’s a statue of Modi pooping, you think it sounds weird but wait till you look at it.
The question is why something like this even exists? It’s bringing the reputation of our country down and what did Modi really do to deserve this? Well, hold it right there.
It’s called a Caganer. The exact origin of it is lost. But to keep it simple, it’s a tradition followed in Spain where a figurine is shown defecating. It’s actually widely taken as a good omen. It’s believed that a Caganer (AKA shitter in Catalan) fertilizes the earth and promises a good harvest for the coming year. Also, a Caganer represents equality among people; regardless of gender, race and status, everybody takes a dump! Originally, a Caganer is a Catalan peasant who is defecating in a corner but now that the times have changed, it has to be someone famous, hence, Pooping Modi.
And Modi isn’t alone in this. Many famous people like, Michael Jackson, Barack Obama, the Pope, Dalai Lama, Elvis Presley and many more are the new generation of Canagers! SO, PM Modi, take that! It’s a compliment!
OH! One last thing, before we weird you out a little more, in the picture, you can see it says “Modi”, but when you actually look at it from the back, it looks a bit like Manmohan Singh, and by back we DON’T mean the butt. It’s the head we’re talking about, looks like a pug, right!?
