You’ve got a mail

10 Jun

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

Subject:      Hi Guys and Gals ….
From:      “N***N T***I” <n***n@students.iiit.net>

Counter-terrorist….. The SuperMan.


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 …

Subject: [All] Fwd: Even God has a Sense of Humour!!
To: all@mail.iiit.ac.in

*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.”




All mailing list


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.


Bah baii !!

6 Apr

It’s been 4 days since i left, and I had started missing “THE PLACE” already.

Miss all those late nite maggies.

Miss uninterrupted infinitely long countless and baseless BC sessions.

Miss the Gachibowli stadium garden, who witnessed every one reveled their untold truth.

Miss the Canteen, coffee shop and OBH’s evening samosas, which has be quieted the shouting hungry stomachs.

and Miss certain miss whom i missed.

Once again want to see SICA taunting “Andhra ki kudiyan” ,

Handa flaunting about “soon to be” his hulky body,

Chauhan saying “kyuki hum chauhan hai”,

harry arguing/warring with hobbit and sica reconsidering his decision of living with them.

Keser watching anime with full dedication and burning his lungs with more.

Akash mixing random songs on his DJing Software and grinning at my frowning face.

and Bappe just being him.

Well some one said “change is the law of nature”

and then some one said “one who adapt to the change survives”

So I guess learning process has not ended …

Last Midsem

20 Feb

Today was another something I did last time at IIIT. Yeh! The midsems, so no more midsems, no more midnight slogging, no more …


eh! I hate this no more blah blah senti …


But this is all that have crowded my mind. Reading all the testimonials from the friends drove me senti…


Same shit again …


I never had this feeling when I left school, and why should I? I had to leave every school after 1 or 2 year. It took 9 schools to finally get me an Intermediate Certificate. So, no emotional attachment 😀 .


Well, what ever!!




Question in mind: – Why do bombers put a clock display attached on a time bomb?


I mean they have set the time, bomb is going to blow up, why they want diffusing team to find out when the bomb is going blow.


Wouldn’t it be better if only the bomber knows when the bomb is going off. He would save the display for other bomb too. See even economic.


Any one still want to defend the Bomber, say Aye!!



Song Listening to: – Chris Isaak – Wicked Game



OK then … Catch you reading the next post.

IIIT – Trendz => Bonjour

17 Dec

Greeting, not only IIIT-H, it’s a trend every where. If you know a person by face then its your moral duty to say ‘hi’ , smile or at least nod when you see him passing by. You don’t know their name, even some time you can’t even recall how do u know them, but you raise your hand whenever they enter your premise. Now it’s totally your choice how you do it. I have tried to list a rough classification of ways people follow the custom.


Based on Body language


  • Noddy-nod:- Guys belonging to this category believe in minimum waste of energy, a little jerk to neck is enough.
  • Bow-Eyebow:- Just raise you eye bows a bit, and leave every thing on the other person to interpreter. Some time mixed with microscopic upward movement of head, or with only one eye bow (quality of perfectionists).
  • Raise-thy-hand:- this category contains jubilant human beings, meeting some one on road is like a celebration time for them. Last two fingers bent, middle and index raised and thumb pointing towards their face carrying a big smile.
  • Halt-hand:- A bit confused, usually geeky by nature, such mortals usually don’t initiate the hi hello exchange. But when disturbed, just raise their hand like the Congress election sign, forcing they lips to stretch.
  • Heavy-hand:- Well these beings have so much in their mind that raising their hand or jerking their head will lead their thought to spilt out of the ears. Keeping hand down rising fingers towards the other guy, they continue talking with themselves or the person beside them.



Based on Lip Movement


  • Speechless:- These guys makes other feel that they need to see an ear specialist. They move their lips but word don’t leave the mouth.
  • Short-speech :- This is the most common of all, Hii, Hello, Hey etc … one word save time, is their policy.
  • Questy-rusty:- This category consists of people who, don’t want to be a short-speech. So, their vocabulary contains “Hey, how r ya” , ”aur kaisa hai” “Kya haal “ etc … but usually avoid waiting for the answer.
  • Think-o-something:- Whenever they see some one walking towards their side, their mind starts thinking of some thing they can ask them. Their reason is, they don’t want to be orthodox, out of the sheep heard (quality of BC lovers).




There are people who try their level best to avoid the tradition, they have come up with various techniques for that…


  • Wht-a-road:- you must have seen many people walking with their head down, pretending they are thinking some thing, but the truth is they are avoiding looking towards the people passing by.
  • Enviro-mental-ist:- They look at every useful and useless stuff around except the people passing by. This guy is like the last man on earth and only thing he can see is the non-human.
  • Wont-look-at-you:- These guys are the smartest of all, they are very normal till they see some one known. They keep their eye focused on some thing other than the person, till he is out of site.


So the key to stay clear off is don’t make eye contact.


Why do people do that?

Simple reason, to save themselves from the embarrassment of some one not responding to their greetings.

OR they are just not social.

OR Snobs.

OR aliens, unaware of earthling’s ways.

OR it’s Scott(Cyclops) (from X-men) without his glasses on.


Well traditions are part of the culture and culture is part of the social life and social life was a pretty boring subject (never got an ‘A’).

Conclusion of this boring discussion is, actually I don’t have a conclusion … if you have then … you know what to do … :D.



PS: – Into to Biology – Should have opted to jump from the sports village building then opting for this subject.

PS: — Dus kahanniyan – awesome songs, ok movie.

PS: — Home – yeh baby!! Here I come.

PS: —- Mid Sems – Why god why?

PS: —– End of Post – Tada …. Pota no longer in rule.
