Breaking the rigmarole of a mundane life, the students of DoMS decided that it was time for some 'serious fun'. Thus was born "Hoodda":the epitome of michief, fun, nonsense and what not. The character is inspired from an old friend of the creater.
The strip is a tribute to life of a typical MBA cum engineer at IIT. Miserable, plodding at times and fun, impulsive otherwise. The launch coincided with "Shaastra" 2009 - the annual tech fest of IIT Madras. The creators Dadri and Chetan came up with quite a few episodes that became instant hits. Within one month of the launch the official blog (www.hoodda.blogspot.com) has recieved more than 1800 hits, not a big number but still a significant one and not to mention tremendous raves. The cartoon is also featured on the Shaastra website (www.shaastra.org/blog).
This is the first such initiative from students from any IIT or IIM. Hope that the strip survives the test of time and emerges stronger by the year.
