“Ye humari car hai, ye hum hain, aur ye hmari pawri ho rhi hai,” these lines are literally on everyone’s lips since a video went viral on Instagram, posted by Pakistani influencer Dananeer Mobeen. From recreating the meme to its version into a song by Indian musical composer Yashraj Mukhate, everyone has joined in for the ‘Pawri.’
But what does it mean? Well, pawry or pawri simply means ‘party’. In the original video posted by Mobeen, she posted a video, which she captioned “No one: When borgors visit northern areas: yeh hamari pawri horai haai.”
Mobeen knew what she was doing, as she further captioned her famous video, “This is the gold content you guys signed up for. 10/10 meme material ????.”
Hailing from Peshawar, the 19-year-old used Borgors, which is a Pakistani stylisation of ‘burgers’ a tag used in the nation for an elite class of people trying desperately to mimic western culture, mannerisms, habits and accents, according to Al Jazeera.
Mobeen in the video said ‘pawri’, which is a manner of saying ‘party’, but she does not give any context. Many have taken to believe ‘pawri’ is just how she says ‘party.’
The ‘pawri ho rhi hai’ video has been viewed over 2.7 million times while Mobeen has gained a massive fan following on Instagram within a week, as she currently has 432k followers on the platform.
