First time I heard this word from my super seniors – the batch of 2001 (ours was batch of 2004). I don’t remember if it was Siddharth Khosla or Ashish Rana or Sandeep Hira but I was told that WATSDAMO is the identity of B.Tech., Punjabi University.
WATSDAMO means –
WE ARE THE STUFF DREAMS ARE MADE OF
It is the famous phrase taken from The Tempest from William Shakespeare.
Later in history of our batch, we organized a tech-feast in Punjabi University for first time in 2003. It was named TechDisha and the logo was pretty obvious but was a bit transformed –
WE R THE STUFF
DREAMS R MADE OF
And while I was searching for landmarks, I landed over a video at YouTube titled WATSDAMO and it was of those great guys of 2004 B.Tech. batch roaming in NewYork. I am embedding the video here for just a reference sake (nothing special to look out but Jaggi, Siddharth, Mr. Handa and Karan Sood) –
I know, it is quite random post but I thought of posting the history and marks of this logo because today I was complimented over WATSDAMO logo while I was wearing TechDisha 2003 T-Shirt. Emotional memories of of Alma Mater – they drive you crazy at times.
