On! Straight on!
On, Cottonians, On!
Muster on the side of right,
March like warriors to the fight,
Mark the foe, and strike with might,
Nec dextrosum Nec Sinistrorsum.
On! Straight on!
On, Cottonians, On!
Keen alike in work and play,
Keen right through the hottest day.
Keen until your hair turns grey.
Nec dextrosum Nec Sinistrorsum.

On! Straight on!
On, Cottonians, On!
Driving through the foaming main,
Buffetted by storm and rain,
Answering to the helm again,
Nec dextrosum Nec Sinistrorsum.

On! Straight on!
On, Cottonians, On!
When you leave the good old school
Be no coward, knave, nor fool;
Yours be still the grand olf rule,
Nec dextrosum Nec Sinistrorsum.

On! Straight on!
On, Cottonians, On!
See this motto on your scroll
Point you to a heavenly goal,
Seek it body, mind and soul,
Nec dextrosum Nec Sinistrorsum.

Most Indians never encounter Latin words or phrases as part of their formal education. But if you went to Bishop Cottons in Bangalore you will inevitably come to learn and hate the phrase "Nec Dextrorsum Nec Sinistrorsum." Latin for "neither to the left, nor to the right," it is the school's motto, recited by Draconian school administrators and unctuous school prefects.

For wayward monkeys like me with a preternatural anti-establisment streak and a history of insubordination issues, this phrase stood for everything oppressive, confining and soul-crushing about Indian education.

Nec Dextrorsum, Nec Sinistrorsum - the proverbial Procrustean bed. Too far to the left and you will be get one nice thappad on your head. Too far to the right, six lashes on your bum. On straight on like a bakra and everything will be just right.

Usage

Cottons Boy1: Hey man we need to all stand in height order and walk over to the multi-purpose hall for socials! Can't wait to see all those cute Cottonian chicks! I am going to try and kiss Apeksha today!
Cottons Boy2: What a great idea! And I have some khodays rum on me which I am going to smuggle in! Full party today!

PT Master (hitting two boys on the head with duster): Bleddy idiots! Stop talking all this nonsense. Remember our school motto: Nec Dextrorsum, Nec Sinistrorsum. You two are a disgrace!

Whatte! Fellow Cottonian I say you are? So nice. My eyes only popped off when I saw the old school motto on Samosapedia - I think I still remember the whole thing. And you poor boys in the boys school had a rougher time than us gals it simms - our education was not so oppressive as y'all's.

Only one time I was fully envious of you lot - when I saw your canteen for the first time. Pah! Full love light only came off - you blighters got such fancy shmancy food like dosa and sandwich and whatnots one proper sagar type place man! Our little metal box called the tuck shop only had aloo rolls and mug'noodles and bar-one chocolate.

And hahahaaaa, don't even talk about those socials! I'll let you in on a secret, the girls would also be slyly checking out all the cute baiz as we walked in!

Remember this, Josephites? "I will take you by the scruff of your shirt and the seat of your pants and unceremoniously eject you out of the classroom".

Bangalore City, Southern India, has an obsession with power - perhaps due to the erratic availability of it. As paradox would dictate, many of the metropolis' precincts are embellished with the omnipresent power-grid - a clunky, looming, phallic-pyramidal structure, ostensibly put in place, to relay electrical impulses from building to building. Also known as "transformer", this miniature Eiffel Tower-like structure, can easily transform your home from an illuminated domicile, into the dark ages. Long-accustomed to this common phenomenon, I now eagerly anticipate it, as such murkiness presents the perfect alibi for me to grope buxom home-visitors, or assist my wife in enhancing my lineage. From the perspective of India's alleged male-dominated society, the "power-grid" is something that women need to scale. And many are doing so, by embarking on securing the country's most desirable diploma - that of an electrical engineer. The fact that sparks hardly fly between men and women in this country, but mainly from malfunctioning power-grids, is... shocking. Simply shocking. And anyway, if the sexes decided to go "around" together, it will surely be a short-circuit! It follows, that I know only one kind of "load-shedding" - getting my big mama off my bruised, blighted and burdened, back!

Usage

Go down the road, till you come to a power-grid. That is your land-mark, since it's the tallest structure around.

There is no other park in Bangalore which better captures the ethos of local college boys (especially those who nurture a proclivity for cracking their jokes and schemes over the reefer leaf). This one-acre composite expanse of children's play-area, nursery, walking path, sacred mini Nandi-bull mount and general verdure, was initially christened Mango Dell Park, after the type of trees grown here and the colonial British planter who facilitated such. But perhaps the fact the Park runs over a matured sewer, ensures that the "grass" is always greener here, and so the vast variety of varsity pot-puffers who claimed this land as their own, retitled it Ganja Park. It is a name that endures into legend, despite the valiant attempt of Puravankara and Co at trying to revamp the space and smother their name across its peripheral walls. As a distinguished resident of a flat overlooking the Park, I eternally have my head in the clouds... of Marijuana smoke.

Usage

Don't ask anyone where Rest House Road is, or where Puravankara Park, or BBMP Park is. Just exclaim, "Ganja Park" and the directions will come thick and fast and specific.

In the '80s, this was THE place to be in Bangalore if you were an eng bai who liked playing dishoom dishoom video games and did not own an Atari or Commodore. Located in front of the original Corner House on Residency Road, Niki's Parlour had all the original arcade games where you could spend many paisas playing Space Invaders, Frogger, Pac Man, Missile Command, ekcetera, and then go to Corner House for a hot fudge chocolate sundae. Bindaas!

Usage

Sunil: Daddy, Daddy, can we go to Niki's Parlour?
Uncle: Finish your homework son, while I read the newspaper.
