If you are an anxious parent or a Class XII student who has been most curious about the new four-year undergraduate course that will be the norm in June -- then head for Delhi University’s Indoor Stadium at its North Campus for its two-day festival, Antardhvani , starting Friday.
“The festival is open to the general public, anyone can walk in and we have made special counters to provide all the information on the new four-year undergraduate course,” said Vice-Chancellor Dinesh Singh. He added that the fest would be an eye-opener for anyone wishing to get into Delhi University and strongly recommended that parents visit. Colleges and departments would be showcasing their best practises with the winners getting cash awards.
Innovation projects, sports trophies, art exhibition and even an exhibition on story-telling are in the offing. The university has suspended teaching for both days of the festivals and has appealed for teachers to make an appearance.
A flower show with participation from its colleges, on-campus homes and government offices is in its second innings. Street plays, kite-flying and other fun things like a rock-band competition along with other music and dance competitions are also on offer. There will also be a food court catered by the Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation. A special “DU Haat” where you can pick up special DU souvenirs is another special feature. History buffs are in for a treat as the university archive at the Viceregal Lodge will be open and you can register for heritage walks.
