I can rejoice that things have become convenient, but the charm of roaming around DU is gone forever

There is an eerie sense of happiness around me. My neighbours, friends, cousins, enemies and everyone in general have scored extremely well. But what is the use of these marks if we have to sit for entrances to get to that perfect college for myself? Aren’t your Board results supposed to take care of that? I am extremely disappointed to be taking admission in Delhi University this year when all the fun is missing. I used to love the admission process for the maddening, long queues, scorching heat, pair of shorts, cotton-tees and banta on-the-go. I was so eager to experience it all myself this year as the admission process began. But, what a dampener the exercise has been. With almost everything available online, from forms to college information, the hustle bustle is missing. I can rejoice that things have become much more convenient, but the fun of roaming around the streets of DU is gone forever. The mad rush, heightened adrenaline and a peek-a-boo at the future fashion trends in the university are now a thing of the past. I so wish I could experience it just once. Filling forms is so mechanical now.
