Forensic Prataology New modules

Semester modules

1. Introduction to Prata Flipping

Description: The art of prata flipping dates back to 23 B.M. (Before Murtabak), about thousands of years ago. It was invented and mastered by the people of Paratha Nation, a lost civilzation after it was destroyed by a deadly natural disaster known as Hurricane Currina.

Fortunately, the ancient art survived because some Parathian traders brought the skill and knowledge to Freaktopia in exchange for some Holy Immortal Pills, one of the national products of Freaktopia.

Since then, Prata Flipping has become a phenomenon, and has even been elevated to pop culture status all over Freaktopia and the Other Realm. Even the previously popular Pollywood boyband Backstreet Boys quit their singing career to turn to flipping pratas, and they even renamed themselves "Backstreet Prata Boys". Such is the prestige of learning to flip pratas.

This course aims to introduce students to the honorable art through theories, practical lessons and a group project. For the group project, students are required to perform a Prata Flipping Act and write a 100,000-words report on a case study of one renowned Prata Flipper from history. Insights and demonstrations by guest lecturers (possibly Backstreet Prata Boys, if their schedule permits) will also be part of the pedagogy.
