In the loving memory of Keeda

Got this forward a few days back. Yes, I still know people who believe that Orkut, yahoo and every other portal is dying to shell out money for saving someone’s life (Mind you, nothing less!). One of those mails that prompt you into using shift+delete, if you happen to use Microsoft outlook. Read through:

IIT Bombay student Anupam Biswas 5th Year Mechanical Engg is suffering from Colukabki (caused due to excessive nabad and depression) a disease very rarely found (3 in a billion). His condition is very pathetic and the treatment is very expensive, obviously his parents are not able to afford his treatment. Orkut has agreed to pay 1 paisa after each time this message is forward. So please pass to all ur friends. Please i request you to pass it to as many people as u can and lets try to save someone's life. I request please do not ignore this. It will take less than 1 min of urs to help save someone's life

This was so IITisque keeda that I could not help but smile! It had IITB written all over it. Am sure there would be some Anupam Biswas who would have been nbdoo and there would have been lots and lots of people who would have wanted to take his case! By the way, NBD (pronounced: nabad) is a high strung state – almost at the verge of Nervous Break Down (abbr: NBD) – frequently used to take a jibe at someone by the keedabaajs. The colloquial usage is for insulting anyone who gets tense about something that you are cool with. For e.g., Abey nbdoo, kyun nbd le raha hai, endsems poore aadhe ghante door hai!­!­

Anyway, this post is dedicated to all keedas and all my partners-in-crime! Relax, Am not about to recount them on this forum ;). However, we can probably take this opportunity to tell ourselves that we have started taking life too seriously, ‘ITNIII Nbd mat le yaar!’
