There was a post somewhere on the internet (http://iitbakar.com/enpunch/iit-roorkee-lingo/) which explained all the terms used at IIT Roorkee. It was, however, removed (server issues maybe?). After searching a lot, I finally got hold of a Google Buzz post, which had a copy of the same- but you never know when it might be deleted or the visibility shrunk. So I decided to put it up in my blog so that it's not lost- at least till doomsday. Yet again, comment if you want something added.
