Social media awoke to the sight of something astonishing yesterday, and if it isn’t the coolest dancing uncle in the history of cool dancing uncles that I have watched, and people are calling him Govinda uncle. Even Punjabi celebrity Deep Brar has found inspiration in Govinda uncle.

So who is Govinda uncle and how did he captivate the attention of millions of Indians, including Deep Brar. Who is this middle-aged man who makes me feel ashamed at the lack of flexibility, talent, stamina and all the other things I do not have?

His name is Sanjiv Srivastava, a professor at the Bhabha University and his video was first shared on Twitter by @bhaiyyajispeaks and received a rousing response from the janta.

Deep Brar ended up being just one of his many admirers and being the killer dances that she is, she decided to replicate his moves and boy am I confused right now. Although on further thought, I think Govinda uncle is still my favourite. What do you think?

Hats off to you Mr. Sanjiv Srivastava. Enjoy the fame.
