DAY ONE AT DU: STYLE, SELFIES, PHONE BANS
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
