When we set out to find out how fresh­ers were far­ing on their first day at Delhi Univer­sity, we saw that nei­ther rain nor con­fu­sion could de­ter their spirit.

The fuchchas were seen in their fash­ion­able best. The girls wore pin­stripe pants, colour-blocked back­packs, graphic tees, ripped jeans and Aztec prints. Dip-dyed hair, cross­body bags and tor­toise shell also added to the fuchcha style state­ment.

“First day hai to naye kapde to bante hi hai, but baar­ish ko bhi dhyaan mein rakhna tha. Dono ko mind mein rakh ke tay­yar ho gaya. Suna tha ki sabse stylish crowd hota hai South Cam­pus ka, par aaj dekh liya,” said Atish Bouri, a first year stu­dent of ARSD col­lege.

While many were spot­ted tak­ing a ride to the nearby DU hotspots, there were some who were not re­ally happy with the things went on their first day. “Find­ing the class was a has­sle and I feel that things were not man­aged well. Some of the pro­fes­sors also turned up late. But I made some new friends.” said Sim­ran Arora, (BA) English Hons, Venkatesh­wara col­lege.

I think it’s a good thing, be­cause cell phones are a nui­sance. Stu­dents don’t pay at­ten­tion in class­rooms Satish Kaushik, film­maker and Kirori Mali alum­nus If cell­phones are banned so that stu­dents give un­di­vided at­ten­tion to teach­ers, I think it’s a good move Gul­shan Grover, ac­tor and SRCC alum­nus
