All mimsey were the borogoves

All please observe a minute's silence in memory of the passing of Jabberwocky Redivivus, the second avatar of the departmental magazine. 'Twas in the year 1989 that the then editor, in order to express solidarily with Salman Rushdie (who had been fatwa'd on Valentine Day 1989) also decided to close down his magazine and retire to an undisclosed place, with armed guards. There has since been no Jabberwocky...

You shamelessly and blatantly ask Pradipta who is in your Poe class, I'm sure she'll happily take umbrage at your shamelessness besides sending you an invite.

Its bloody brilliant to have our Tintin da here! *Perhaps we can lure another one!*
Welcome...Welcome! Do stick around. It is a wonderfully boring place and if you're here long enough...nothing...absolutely nothing might just happen! Oh wait...that already happened...oh well!
