Walking through Delhi University

Paper cutout of Einstein

I was in an university after a long time. It wass Delhi University. Drifting through the corridors I found the usual haphazardly piled up stuff that labs are not quite certain that they want to throw away. One of these was a steel cabinet. Stuck to it was the beautiful paper cutout you see above. I love the creativity and dedication of these students: they live their science. I just wish we were able to harness this talent better than we do.

University life has not changed that much. The canteen I went to was called the staff canteen, but as usual, the staff was outnumbered by students.

I was told that I could not go wrong with the “burgar”. I did not get a chance to do it right; they were over. I settled for the halwa and a coffee. No matter what you have, the prices are incredible. No wonder the students keep coming back. The prices are good enough to attract me back for as long as I’m here.

I travel on work. When that gets too tiring then I relax by travelling for holidays. The holidays are pretty hectic, so I need to unwind by getting back home. But that means work.
