The NDA acronyms.....

Here are a few acronyms that we used to use in d golden NDA days (with usage....):

Disclaimer: This post may not be very clear as to the value attached to these words for most of the people, please humor me :)...would be clear to Ex NDAs n other officers why I wrote it....

  • JLT: Just Like That: Was mostly used when there was no reason for giving a punishment....general happiness :) ....just like that
  • DWL: Disgusted With Life: For people who often tended to go into the above mentioned mode :) :) n actually disgusted with life....
  • JTB: Just Too Bad: People's way of sympathizing with you for getting caught, et al :) :)
  • DLTGH: Days Left To Go Home: The ultimate countdown, used to start at DLTGH-45
  • NQA: No Questions Asked : When there's an order (almost all orders) which you necessarily have to follow without questions...
  • MIA: Missing In Action: An official term that goes as KIA, used for the smart-boys who used to miss the punishment reports... :)
  • JIC: Just In Case: for d tendency to carry a lot of stuff in camps...just in case....
  • NMB: No Move Before: Again, an official term...essentially to cap the start time of something
  • LIC: Locked In Cabin: Describes the smart-act of locking your door from outside, entering your room again from the window and making the seniors think that you're out....while you sleep in peace (implemented on Sundays :):):) )
Met a junior of mine today....fond memories...a totally different life...a life of respect, honor & integrity... Time to get back to the real life :)
