One would have expected winners of September 7 Panjab University Campus Students Council election to be still nursing a hangover of their hard-won victory, but they along with their supporters preferred to sleep till late morning on Saturday and play football in the afternoon.

The victorious student leaders were relaxed and basking in the glory of their victory. Interestingly, the winning panel claimed that no party was held to celebrate the PUCSC clean sweep on Friday since all of them were "too tired for a bash".

But clearly, they could not have remained aloof from talks on politics for long. They did meet each other for a discussion on their victory during the day. "We all were so tired that we slept well into the morning. The excitement is still there. In the afternoon, we spent time playing football in the varsity grounds. We felt so contented and happy," said a beaming Barinder Singh Dhillon, a SOPU student leader.

Newly elected PUCSC president Satinder Singh (Satti) spent the day accepting birthday wishes along with his poll victory. "I have lost count of phone calls I have received since morning. This is the best birthday gift I could ever get," Satti remarked.

SOPU leaders were visibly happy while discussing news reports that talked of their win. "I can still hear the dhol beats in my ears. The feeling is awesome and I am thankful to God that all our efforts were rewarded," said SOPU leader Vikramjit Singh (Vicky).

Meanwhile, those who lost the poll battle too wanted to relax and preferred to spent time in their hostel rooms. Many even left for their native places on Friday itself due to the weekend ahead.

The new panel does not believe in wasting time and wants to get into the thick and thin of student politics as soon as possible. They plan to chalk out their schedule on Tuesday when the varsity reopens.
