It has not even been a month since Delhi University (DU) started its academic session, but the fuchchas have already found their best friends on campus.

We asked a few freshers about the friendship quotient on campus and their plans to celebrate Friendship Day. A prank won a buddy Siddharth Kakkar from Sri Venkateswara College, South Campus, can’t forget his first day in the college.

“My classmate Radhika ragged me and I didn’t even know she was a first year student. But now, we are best friends in the class and yes, we are planning to have great fun
today,” Kakkar says. He will be taking Radhika to UV’s Village, a restaurant right opposite their college.

State of find
Smriti is a Delhiite and Megha is from Jaipur. Both are pursuing History (Honours) from Lady Shri Ram College, South Campus. “Look, Megha is new to Delhi and lives in a paying guest accommodation in Greater Kailash-I. She has not seen much of Delhi.

So, today I plan to take her out for a Delhi trip. We will to do some shopping as well, and end the day with a nice meal,” says Smriti.

Rivals turned friends
Judith Lu of BA Programme plays basketball for Jesus and Mary College, South Campus. She has found friends in teammates Versa and Ria. But Lu is especially glad about her friendship with Tulip.

There is a reason behind this. “Tulip and I were in different schools and used to play against each other and were big rivals. But now, we are in the same team and have become good friends.

It is a great feeling to be so buddy-buddy with somebody, who was once a rival,”
says Lu. “I live in Jangpura Extension and Tulip’s home is nearby. So she picks me up in in her car while driving to college,” she adds.

Today, both the friends plan to go out for lunch. And, since both share a weakness for street food, they will be looking to gorge on gol gappas.
