Definition

Not to be confused by a usual Discotheque, where people usually booze and dance. DisCo stands for "Disciplinary Committee" (and hence DisCo) which is a governing body in most of the Universities and engineering colleges across the country, for taking Disciplinary action against students involved in malicious activities like doping, beating up the guard while drunk, tease girls, ragging juniors, sexual harassement, mob fight, and oh! cheating in exams too (though that was the primary motive at the beginning). However, the primary agenda diminished as we stepped into the 21st century and most of the geek men/women now, who are out of college, brag in their facebook pages that they were once actioned upon by the DisCo, as if it were a matter of pride, and some wish that those DisCo days are back being a bit too nostalgic. DisCo has its own wannabes and its own victims who suffered for a not so noble cause. After all, its a matter of pride!!
