Panaji, Sep 18 (IANS) The pothole menace, which has dominated Goa's political and social discourse throughout the monsoon this year, now has a music video dedicated to them.The video, launched on social media late on Tuesday, went viral the very next day. And this comes barely a week after Public Works Department Minister Deepak Pauskar started a dedicated helpline to complain about the potholed roads. Pauskar has put the blame for bad roads on the unprecedented rains this year. Called the #Rosto (a road in Konkani) song, crooned by choreographer Cecille Lee Rodrigues, is a take-off on an iconic Konkani all time classic number 'Bebdo' sung by Lorna."Potholes have been a major concern in Goa. Of course, many of us speak about it almost daily, but I thought it would be interesting to write a funny, sarcastic song on this issue, which I did," Rodrigues has said.The video highlights the poor plight of roads, especially in and around Panaji, and sarcastically presents them as new vistas for tourism in the coastal state.This comes after a video went viral that showed a man dressed as an astronaut 'Moonwalking' on potholes in Bengaluru.
