Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.
The makers of the Indian version of The Office probably don't even know what we're talking about. I mean, come on, identity theft is not a joke. Millions of families suffer every year.

The Office isn't just a show for us. It's a huge part of our lives. Set in a mundane workplace, with characters so relatable you'd think you could bump into them on a normal day, The Office has set a tone for us that no comedy show, nay, no show can ever replace.

Do you think it'd be a good idea for the makers of random drama shows in India to try and adapt that into the Indian workplace?
I mean, think about it.
Firstly, I don't think some random-ass half-baked overconfident 'fun'jabi boss of Wilkins Chawla can ever fill the shoes of the mild-mannered, handsome with rugged good looks regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin. There's just too much depth to each of these characters and I don't see the Indian TV industry ever working up to it.
(Also, The Office is a mockumentary, a show with white noise in the background. How much would you like to bet the Indian version will have random sound samples whenever a funny joke is made - "boi-oi-oi-oi-ing")

Yes. India did have a funny show about an office. Called Office Office. Starring Rajat Kapoor. And it was funny as a slapstick comedy show.

But this is not the same ballgame. This is a meticulous series of character arcs hidden under a comedy show.

So here's what we need to do. We need to stop this. And here are some ways we could do that:
Make them drop this show like it's Kevin's Chilli.
Get them into legal trouble (I don't know, put some Caprese salad in their desk drawer and call the cops maybe?)
Hide their phones in the false ceiling right above them and keep calling it so it keeps ringing and they keep searching for it and they lose their collective minds and eventually punch a hole through the wall behind them.
Add a two rupee coin into their phone receiver everyday for several days and make sure they slowly get used to the weight. Then one day, just take all the coins out.
Worst case scenario: put the film reel in jelly.
That'll show 'em.

However, let's just start with this petition for now.
