It’s been more than a year since i’ve left IIIT hyphen H. Well, college days are over now, and can’t fold this time plane to reach the same place.
Out of innumerous things I miss about the place, tullu mails are one of them. I still remember the Gali-mama/Aazad time, people used to wait eagerly for the next mail to arrive, to find who the new victim is? well, Apart from the Azaad series there were some other small scale tullu mails.
Ok! to clear things off … A small trivia … the name tullu mail was coined by the mail sender’s only. In their early phase most of such mails use to have the same content “I am the biggest tullu of IIIT”. So the word tullu caught up with the “mail” suffix and we got a general term called tullu mail.
Here’s an example of a typical tullu mail

They are always fun to read… But as it’s evident, they are composed by someone but the mail ID owner. Though sometimes people knowingly send some mails, which are more amusing than these tullu mails, like this one …
Dear Mr. ANKUR HANDA please meet me immediately for head examination.
Also a student has taken my PEN and not returned it. This is a very SERIOUS matter. Return it immediately or I will take up the issue with the DEAN.
And this just a tiniest part of thy awesomeness.
But this one takes the cake …
I have added 2 movies to share and am of the opinion that students and
faculty alike would find them interesting
This is a biographical movie on the life of the great classical music
composer Ludvig van Beethoven
Ayn Rand: A Sense of Life
This is a biographical movie on the life of the author Ayn Rand, she wrote
many bestsellers like “Atlas Shrugged”, “Fountainhead”, etc. In addition
to that, she was the founder of the school of philosophy known as,
My nick on DC is V****
MS By Research
And it was followed by this …
*Even God has a Sense of Humor!!*
God was in the process of creating the universe.
And he was explaining to his subordinates “Look everything should be in
balance. For example, after every 10 deer there should be a lion.
Look here my fellow angels, here is the country of the United States.
I have blessed them with prosperity and money.
But at the same time I have given them insecurity and tension….
And here is Africa. I have given them beautiful nature.
But at the same time, I have given them climatic extremes.
And here is South America. I have given them lots of forests.
But at the same time, I have given them lesser land so that they would have
to cut off the forests…
So you see fellows, everything should be in balance.
One of the angels asked…
“God, what is this extremely beautiful country here?”
God said……. “Ahah…that is the crown piece of all. “INDIA”,
My most precious creation.
It has understanding and friendly People.
Sparkling streams and serene mountains.
A culture which speaks of the great tradition that they live.
Technologically brilliant and with a heart of gold…..
The angel was quite surprised:
“But god you said everything should be in balance.”
God replied — “Look at the neighbours I gave them.”
Well, first mail was informative and second was a little lame but what do you expect from a forward mail … and definitely non of them in any condition are supposed to be forwarded to all@iiit which, by the way includes faculty, students and staff member …
I remember sending a test mail once to students account, then Sysadmin blocked my account immediately, I don’t know what happened to this poor guy’s account.
PS: – Please don’t call me sadistic … I did remove the names.
PS: — Although at least every one at college already know the true identity of the sender.
PS: — Leaving for bangalooru this weekend for a pseudo-reunion.
