Delhi University

I read the news about cancellation of a few promising NSUI candidates due to wrongly filled forms, some days back in the papers. It’s unfortunate to have one’s efforts gone to waste due to such imperative trivia. Anyway, that’s not the point why I write this.

The article just reminded me of the time a few years back, when I and a friend of mine from school had gone around the north campus filling forms for admission… Hindu, Hansraj, Stephen’s… It’s a different story altogether that neither of us went to DU ultimately… while she still had a fortnight long tryst there before moving to the States, I did not get a chance to attend a single class in the college I had taken admission in… Physics Hons…. Janta around me was amazed at my choice… Looking back, even I wonder how I would have faired at it… Like so many other dark alleys in life, this one too remains unexplored…

It was an interesting experience I must say… tiring but strangely enjoyable… there’s something about the university that sets it apart… though I can’t quite express it, but one just feels it when one’s there…

I don’t know what it is like belonging to the university itself, but those days spent in the scorching summer filling up forms and discussing colleges and courses remain a vivid part of my memory. And so do the NSUI/ABVP posters that just cant escape your realm of sight, thanks to their omni-directional presence… 🙂

    I also remember my days of moving around the DU North Campus and filling up forms – enjoyed it a lot – and ended it very differently: took up Physics Hons!

    I read earlier this year that DU in tie up with a company has provided bicycles on rent for students to move from one college to another. Surprisingly, the rent, apart from cash, is deposit of certificates!!!
    I dont recollect whether it is Mumbai University or Delhi University which has started accepting admission forms online – that will definitely save the youngsters the summers but i am sure they will miss the fun 🙂

    Oh wow!
    You don’t seem like a physics kinda person though! You’re more of a kind who’s got freakonomics running like blood through his veins!
