While pizza, taco, and burger have already made to the emoticon list, biryani lovers now want an emoticon for the dish and have started an online campaign for the same. MTV India wrote an online petition on behalf of personified biryani saying it has been 'wronged'. The campaign, ever since it was started, received a massive response from people across India.
“India loves me so much that now there’s even a stamp in my honor...But I’m the victim of a greater dishonor. I still don’t have an emoticon. My western cousins - pizza, taco and burger - have been part of your chats since forever. But, even after being one of the most sought after dishes in the country, I feel like I don’t truly belong,” read the petition.
“I am biryani, the country’s greatest emotion, but unfortunately not an emoticon. It’s up to you to change that! Fight for me, fight for your love. Sign the petition and help me become an emoticon!” it further read. According to the petition, MTV India will feed one child from their partner NGO Robinhood Army for every 10 signatures.
In unity for biryani. Around 600 students marched for the biryani emoticon in Delhi. Here are a few highlights. Sign the petition now to make #biryaniemoticon a reality. https://t.co/DQwJPu251m @biryanibykilo @vjgaelyn @zackakshay @bellaofficials pic.twitter.com/BJ7QCBd7AE— MTV India (@MTVIndia) November 19, 2019
