Campus Life – Delhi University Dreams

Different types, different needs.

Last night I dreamt that Delhi University (DU) had a classified section on its website where students were actively seeking dating partners. Full details here:

At St. Stephen’s
SHAKESPEARE-READING ENGLISH HONS BOY craves intelligent conversation, spontaneous laughter, and amorous sparks. Had a girlfriend but her marks were way below the cut-off percentage. Now looking for an adventurous spirit to take evening walks in the Ridge. Knowledge of eating the ‘mince’ with fork and knife is a must.

At Lady Shri Ram College for Women
DEVOTED FEMINIST, likes discussing Simone de Beauvoir and Susan Sontag. Passion for stray dogs and fast driving. Looking for a tall, broad-shouldered, guitar-playing intellectual. Would love to learn French together in Alliance Francaise. No moustache.

At Hans Raj College
EGALITARIAN, ACTOR, Maggi-eating, fecklessly romantic, Karl-Marx reading, K-Nags regular. You must be THE college babe. Any college.

At Sri Venkateswara College
NATTILY-DRESSED CHICK LIT FAN, fit girl, GK-I regular, handbag junkie seeks a financially secure boy with an equally big car. Just like Mr Big in Sex and the City. Geeks need not respond.

At Jesus & Mary College
FASHIONABLE, SLENDER, brand-conscious, aspiring model seeks a well-dressed IIM-type man. No doctors and engineers. Those with psychology notes must apply during exam time.

At Kirori Mal College
ACTOR, INTELLECTUAL, creative, argumentative, mostly seen in a Fabindia kurta and designer stubble. Tell me if you are artsy, buy skirts in Dilli Haat and fond of Shaw and Beckett. Would prefer someone from KMC or D-School.

At Miranda House
GRACEFUL, ALLURING, Wodehouse-reading, IHC-hopping, backpack-carrying girl with kohl-lined eyes. Call me if you are a Stephanian or a member of the British Council library.

At Janki Devi Memorial College
INTELLIGENT, STUDIOUS, homely girl, nose pierced, hair coloured, enjoys shopping in Karol Bagh. Would love to be with a well-off Mills & Boon kind of character. No flamboyant man, please. Would love to share significant other’s interest in music, dance and sociology.

At Hindu College
PASSIONATE, LOVING INTELLECTUAL girl with strong political views. Regarded by many as a visionary. Fascinated by D-School. Has an I-don’t-care attitude. Write only if you are a boy and carry books and sport long hair. Extra points if you are in Stephen’s.
