The exam season is now reflected in the style factor of students of Delhi University. These girls and boys are now sporting T-shirts that relate their ‘mann ki baat’ about exams and subjects that they weren’t good at.
Bhoomika Chaudhary, a B.Com final year student, was spotted with a T-shirt that had ‘Baba ji ka thullu’ written on it. “Maths is just not for me! But dude there is just no escaping it, as it is a subject in my syllabus. And I know that my result will be very much like Baba ji ka thullu,” she says as she points towards her T-shirt.
The movie 3 Idiots has also been an inspiration for many, as Aal izz well, becomes a mantra to relax before exam. “When you can’t mug up the syllabus before exams, you need self-motivation and what can be a better way to wear something that supports you during exams. Toh jab bhi darr lagta, bas dil pe haath rakhkar keh deta ki beta ‘al izz well,” says Gaurav Ahuja, second-year student.
Aman Budhiraja, a third-year student of Management Studies was spotted wearing a T-shirt reading, ‘More study more confusion, less study less confusion’. “When my friends message me ki bhai, there is confusion in Chapter 4, then I tell this to them. I got this T-shirt especially printed for the exam season.”
What better way to show your frustration towards a subject you’ve not been able to master since school. “Bachpan se hi, I have been very bad at Hindi.I don’t want to spread any message. This quote is for me. When I saw this t-shirt in the market, I thought this one is made for me,” says Ekta Mehra, a final year, English honours student, who was wearing a t-shirt that said ‘Pardon my Hindi’.
