The biggest badass college from dad's dad's dad's time still runs due to it
i study there so even more reason to be badass
one of the grand old men among indian colleges
so it would be an insult to mistake MCC for Malabar Christian college or even more if taken as Mount carmel college
inspite of Alumni being stylized as Ladies and gentlemen of MCC
and being the alma mater of many respected indians the college has a reputation of being the home town of hippies in a good and bad way...

Usage

MCC
the name is enough

recommendation letter

\rec-men-da-shun let-urr\
0 0
Noun. November 2, 2013, Word of the Day
0

Definition

A letter to an employer from an important friend/relative/government official/politician/big-wig that "strongly encourages" the hiring of the bearer of the letter. The letter is usually carried to a job interview by the prospective candidate and there is an implied threat/quid pro quo if the employer rejects the candidate after receiving the letter.

The "recommendation letter" has nothing to do with the merit of the job applicant and is purely a form of nepotism/flouting of clout.

There are often times when multiple candidates arrive with respective recommendation letters - in this case, the perceived hierarchy of power of the 'recommenders' would typically determine the selection.

Sometimes a recommendation letter is sent directly to the interviewer - and this can arrive either before, or even after the interview has been conducted. In either case, it commands obeisance.

Usage

Interviewer: Do you have recmundasion lettur?
Interviewee: Yes, sir .. rekomendasin lattar from .

One Job Applicant to another: Hey, that guy (another applicant sitting in the waiting room) seems very smug, he probably has a super recommendation letter. We don't stand a chance. Let's bail and get some masala tea.
