IIT Lucknow

I was at IITK last weekend. While visiting Vaibhav in his room in the new RA hostel (in case you are wondering why it was important to mention new RA hostel, well because its new and almost luxuriously new 🙂 ), we were told an interesting real life joke by BD. He did not know that there is an IIM in Lucknow. There is some institute in Lucknow, which calls itself IIT Lucknow; IIT seems to be standing for Institute of Information Technology or something like that. Now, BD was visiting a friend who happened to be studying in this college. He noticed the name of the college and was surprised. The friend explained the situation. Later he had to visit some relative and on the way he noticed a board which said IIM Lucknow. No need to say he was appalled at what kind of city Lucknow is and to what extent people can go on copying the names of eminent institutes 🙂

  1. Whoever you are,
    dont ever think that lucknow is a place where people are that ,you have mentioned in your post.

    I belong to the same college.Certainly it had the same short form
    Its full name was Institute of Integral Technology.
    It had been changed to Integral university.

    Try to improve your views regarding the world i dont want to use any bad words,
    but i shd say mind your language,atleast about the city

    good bye

  2. If you read little carefully, this was a joke that came out because the person was ignorant of the presence of an IIM in Lucknow and got confused about the abbreviation “IIT”. That’s it. This is no statement on the city or even the college. Its no crime not to be aware of certain colleges or institutes. And funny situations can arrive out of that, which is what happened in this case.

  3. Ofcourse it was a joke to say about Lucknow,Because Lucknow is famous all over the world by it’s research institutes,world lavel technology institutes including IIET,UPTU,IIM,BSIPB,SIMAP,CDRI,SGPGI,ITRC,BRI and many more.Lucknow is a giant hub for quality education and economical/commercial activities.So what he said about this city before it was a kidding for his friends.He feels sorry if anybody hurt.No need to say about the city like Lucknow,Pune & Delhi.These cities already have reached to that hight which is needless to explain.Whole world know about these historical and educated cities.But some cities having IIT only are still fighting for there recognition to the world like Kanpur,Surat and many more.
