A man in Surat district of Gujarat is organizing a farting competition on September 22. According to the reports, Yatin Sangoi, who is a singer by profession, will hold this event. 48-year-old Yatin was a finalist in one of the popular singing shows in the year 2001.
This is probably for the first time that such competition is organized in India. Yatin reportedly said, “Around 25 days back I came up with a loud fart while watching television with my family. Someone joked that I would be a winner if a farting competition is organized somewhere. The idea hung on. My friends laughed when I shared the idea with them.”
“I decided to go ahead with the event anyhow even if there were 10 participants. The whole idea was to have fun in times like the present one, where the business is slow,” said Yatin.
According to the reports, more than 30 people have sent in their entries for the event till now. The organizers got some queries from Kolkata also, which is far away from Surat. Moreover, the organizers are will to pay Rs 15,000, Rs 10,000, and Rs 5000 for the winners apart from the trophies.
Giving details about the event, Sangoi informed that there would be three categories on which the participants would compete. The categories would be the longest fart, the loudest fart, and the most musical fart.
Sangoi chose the month of September for competition because the business is slow and the purchase is prohibited because of the days of ‘Shradhs’.
He is also planning to organize such an event in Ahmedabad, Mumbai, and Kolkata.
