The Inadvertent Glossary of College – A revival… Revisited

IIT Delhi - My CollegeIIT KharagpurIIT Bombay

Earlier posted without meaning.. now have them.. Take a look

After the college, i remember the college language the most. I took this initiative earlier to create a glossary for all those unscrupulous words, but all those gone with the wind with the end of college’s last day. So i have started the compilation once again.
This isn’t actually a glossary of the words but only a list from my IIT days.
I invite all other students and “ex-students” to add their words as comments underneath. Also do add your version of meanings for the words you give and already given here.
A comprehensive version of the glossary is on its way. So do contribute to the glossary and ahhh well .. a contri to your cccccccooooooooooooooooooooollll days…. college days!! Do name your college dudes /dudettes
Please do add the funny names you gave to your friends with the serendipity behind the name
