This article is part of https://jinkchak.wordpress.com/2013/01/17/the-penultimate-semester-anthology/ . Due to the fact that the aforementioned article was one of the longest that Jinkchak has ever published and knowing that a lot of RVCE students are hard-pressed for time, the Oppa Gangnam Style short story was separated from its parent article. So, if you haven’t read it yet, I urge you to continue reading the words that follow…

gangnamAfter “Gangnam Style” had taken the world by storm, its influence could be ascertained within RVCE itself. It proved to be extremely useful as background music while writing data sheets and records in class. Those who carried laptops and phones to class had the added advantage of being able to feast their eyes on the video whenever they found it crucial to satisfy their whims. If you were lucky enough, you could find people practicing those dance moves in various parts of the campus.

gangnam3I would be committing a grave injustice if I didn’t mention a noteworthy incident that took place in a particular final-year class of the ECE department. A few students, including PSY (This is and isn’t a student’s real name – Go Figure! For clarity, I’ll refer to him as PSY Junior) were so invigorated by this Gangnam Style that they got it into their heads that they should experiment with it in class in the presence of a teacher, who was writing on the black-board. And this is exactly what they did. They were lucky to have a handy camera-person who uploaded the results of their endeavours on YouTube and Facebook with the appropriate music. Needless to say, this video became a favourite among RV students, and I daresay, had an infinitesimally miniscule chance of being noticed by the original PSY himself.

Well, the story doesn’t end there, folks. Rumour has it that, so popular did the video become that it was even viewed by a few RV teachers! Unfortunately, this was a bane in disguise for PSY Junior, for, you see, out of all the dancers’ countenances, only his visage could be discerned clearly in the low-resolution video. He was caught the following day and reprimanded for his deed, and, according to a few (un)reliable sources, he was thrown out of class and was prevented from gracing a lab or two with his presence. The videos were taken down from YouTube and Facebook to avert further harm. How everything returned to normal later is something I’ll leave to your vivid imagination, because, quite frankly, I haven’t a clue! However, I do know that this story about PSY Junior and his team’s daring deed will be passed down from generation to generation, immortalized in the sands of time, and I’m sure it would have made PSY extremely proud to know that his style has been put to good use in RVCE, had he got a chance to witness it with his own eyes.
