4 years ,an experience of a lifetime but still feels like yesterday .It doesn’t matter – whether you were a 5 pointer or a 10, whether u were a dude or a douche, college life is something we are never going to forget .We have moved on from “Hi ! my name is… ” to “bhai hai apna”.For some strange reason ,we felt better at our friend’s placement than ours.Placed with a package worth lakhs but still craving for that last slice of free food at RUKHSAT. Our way of life will be memories, stuffs that are never going to remain the same .A life that will be missed everyday for the rest of our lives…
A- Anirudh Narayan aka Mario
Well ,if Irony plays on nicknames, this guy tops the list. Apart from a short build ,there’s hardly anything that will remind you of our childhood best friend. Infact ,had he been Mario ,Bowser would be doing laundry for princess Peach. He was the guy who called us “People worse than terrorists who should be hanged till death” for putting up proxies in attendances. If he were our HOD, half of the batch would be serving at Guantanamo Bay .
B-Bikini/Nesci Official Lovers’ Point
For an estrogen-starved campus, it is one of the few places that remind you that ours is a co-ed institution.
Starting from ‘ ek-do-teen-char ‘at every other event to sheet-dahan-samaroh at Tagore Hostel , from the sad demise of TT Table on Sachin’s 200 to high spirits on Friday Nights ,bakar is what engineers do for 4 years.
C- Civil Lines
When you live in a place like
Hellabad Allahabad, anything even remotely related to a-place-to-hangout /shop /eat/go-out and literally anything means Civil Lines. Allahabad without Civil Lines is like nyt out without Che-chi burger and 4-am-band-malai #Pointless.
The most feared specie on the campus,refers to the people addicted to using fatal P.Js /facts/logics. Humour can be lethal sometimes and in MNNIT many a times.
E- Energy Crisis
We don’t usually study but when we do, administration makes sure that we don’t. Dedicated to the power cuts before every single goddamn CTs and endsems.
F- Fests- Avishkar, Gnosiomania and Culrav
India’s biggest technical, quizzing and cultural fests (lol ),a platform to exhibit your creativity and capabilities (connections with seniors) ,with results and rewards as credible as condolence messages on DC ++.
The ritual created to remind you of the fact,sometimes friends can be real pain in the ass and not just metaphorically
H- Honey, Nikku, Pondy
An opportunity for Engineers (read: CS/IT/ECE) to extend their final year vacation; an elusive dream for others.
J- JIT –Just In Time
Our answer to the people who accuse wanna-be engineers of being muggers who don’t know how to apply theoretical knowledge in the practical life. A concept we have applied in every possible aspect of our daily lives; from waking up in morning to getting ready for college, reaching classes to
making copying assignments and determining the syllabus to prepare for examinations -everything was JUST-IN-TIME.
K- K. N. Pandey
One of the most genuine a**holes you are ever likely to meet in your entire life. Even Shakespeare would have run out of words were he to express my disgust and repulsion. Just get this -if i have a gun with 3 bullets and i am in a room filled with people like Justin Bieber, Digvijay singh, Sharad Pawar, Kasab and K N Pandey, I’ll still shoot K N Pandey
A lingo associated with MNNIT but finds its true meaning only in final year. The difference between final year and others is our ‘we-don’t-give-a-shit’ attitude is backed by faculty. A go-and-fucking-enjoy-final-year disguised as 8 credit Project occupying most of the space in time table and people being bestowed with the best imaginable grades.It basically sums up to LITE LO !!!
Lallu-Official Sutta cum Food Joint #1
The only place where even the strongest of Teetotalers would tolerate the smoke for the awesome food.
M-M P Hall
Well, the person who christened our beloved MP Hall must have been a very farsighted individual. It ,surely , is a Multi-Purpose Hall used for every possible purpose and by every I mean every ;)
The fact is engineers love to sleep but not at night.Believed to be started for the divine purpose of mugging ,with passing time, the motive grew holier- ranging from 4 am band-malai to LOTR-marathon to gaming spree to high-spirits on Friday night.
When a bunch of nerds landed in a deserted place, Hellabad and found out that college life was everything but what Sir Karan Johar showed us, people found solace in the only
viable free option available. These days it’s all about notifications and friend requests, but 4 years back it was all scraps and “asl ??”
Not exactly a destroyer but someone who has made his mark.The multiple usage word is uttered for Uday facebook Jalan, dassi/dassu or guys for scoring the hottest(of the lot) chic on the campus
Although, everyone brags that they don’t give a shit about pointers. The truth remains that every single soul in the campus ,atleast once, thought of improving it. Thankfully, the determination lived as long as our new year resolutions.
For the never ending,mindless and stupid queries of juniors regarding books,papers,grades and placements about which neither we have a single clue after four years.
R- RS,Vodka and Grass
Golden Rule for college life: When you feel low in life, get high.
S- SAC and Live Matches
In a nation obsessed with cricket , watching a cricket match is very different from watching it with a zillion people ,in a small room, shouting at top of their voices and remembering Ponting’s and Sir Jadeja’s mothers and sisters in unison. Rooting for your team in MI V/S KKR or Chelsea V/S MAN-U. We will still watch matches but it would never be the same.
T- TPO Brigade
In the city of sangam , people take dip in the holy ganges to wash off their sins ,but I doubt people in TPO ever need it . One placement is enough to give you chills down the spine .To worry for placement of whole batch even if u are unplaced (keeping tensions aside)and to miss all the treats and tours despite being placed is the most selfless deed on the planet. Hats Off to everyone at TPO # Respect.
U- Uptron –Official Sutta cum Food Joint #2
When you are served food that even famine victim would refuse to eat, the only respite is our mini food court aka Uptron serving the sasta,sundar and tikau food.
V- Viva (keh ke lena)
With all the bakar in the class and professors declaring us as worst batch ever ,when we held our heads high thinking ourselves as alpha-race in the longtime battle b/w teachers and students ,Vivas were prof’s way of saying BITCH PLEASE !!! It is ten or 15 minutes of agony and despair, a redemption for all the bitching, every proxy placed and every paper plane thrown .
This male-chauvinistic world has always been unfair to the fairer sex, but a tending-to-zero sex ratio has made sure it’s the other way around here. I am not nitpicking anything (better grades, less torture in VIVAS, better chances of winning an event, better jobs) but woman certainly rule the world of MNNIT.
X- Xerox,Maggi and Topo Machine
There are discoveries that helped human race and then there are inventions without which mankind would cease to exist. If we owe anything to scientific discoveries, it is to the discoverers of Xerox, Topo Machine and Maggi.
Pretty much the motto of every engineering student .You Only Live Once and hence take-no-shit and give-no-shit
Z Ze End
