Delhi University is the heart of all the fun and frolic that surrounds the inhabitants. We as students encounter so many different styles to dress each day when we move out.
Someone with a palazzo and hair tied in a bun and there you see the other with a trouser and a shirt sitting and indulging at McDonalds! From Kamala Nagar to Hudson to Chhatra Marg to Vishwa Vidyalaya metro station, we find groups of people in their teens or early twenties having the time of their lives.

Delhi University has become a hub where people eat for themselves, dress for themselves, dance or sing or drive. They have seen life in a way no one else has. People from all over the country are bound by a university, a university that is more often a culture, a tradition that we follow. This culture, I bet, cannot be found in any part of India other than the colleges here. We revel with each other, survive the harsh realities of life and surrender to the bounty of what might come next in the roller coater.
The fashion trends change like day and night. Delhi University is a place where whatever you wear becomes a trend, only if you’ve got the knack to carry it well. You might have hair till your knees or you might just want to chop it off. If you are confident of your looks, it becomes something everyone admires. This place has so much to offer, such a wide arena of thoughts and societies and events to invest your time in that you forget about the hardships or the academically inclined worlds you might once have been a part of.

Been at Sudama’s? No, it’s not a five star hotel. It’s just a tea stall outside Hansraj Hostel. But there lies the fun! Be it any time of the day, students are littered around the campus and found dunking in a food stall or casually roaming with friends, window shopping, increasing book collections or shouting out with fervour. May be the drama lies much ahead.

Fests come next. But before they come, they bring with themselves so much of entertainment. All the colleges are stuffed with students, activists or DUSU members (who just have to be everywhere). Elections are another phase in Delhi University. The other day I was walking by the campus and a group of a particular party came, shook my hand and handed me a pamphlet asking me to vote for their candidate. And you know what the funny part is? Elections in DU are scheduled to be in September! It is another mad period.

It is said that once you come here, you just belong here. You might not enjoy anywhere else. You have not connect to any other place.
Delhi University gives you an identity, an identity that will stay with you till you are, till you fit in. How can you just let go of it?
