Hostel life has its own fun for everyone, and when it comes to the top most educational institutions of the country, people normally have a view that there must be only study going on all over. Well, to be honest, the students in these top institutions have some of the weirdest way of lifestyle. They talk much uncommon, use some invented words which you might never have heard!

These lingos are believed to be very expressive, and this only an IITian can understand! The roots of these lingos can be from variety of sources but the simplification of these has been done in all these years by the batches. As per the IITians, the language they use is very much powerful yet it is musical, much methodical but still poetic and its IITians’ pride but other’s envy!
