To study last minute. Indian education system places disproportionate emphasis on rote memorization of inconsequential information and hence you will find many a high school student "mugging" the exact width of the lingam in some random Shiva temple.

Usage

Vikram: Can't play man. History finals tomorrow. Need to do mug up everything about morarji desai by tomorrow.
