We all have somewhere dreamed, regretted, consoled and wailed before and after coming to the University of Delhi. The romanticized idea of venturing in the capital had been amusing once, the effort required for mere survival in the city has crushed, torn and thrown in the deepest sea, the amusement that has brought us all here. Especially the people, who had to leave their cocoons to enroll themselves in one of the top universities of India, feel deeply enervated by the pace of this city.

You might feel lonely in the enormous stature of the city, where ‘minding your own business‚Äô is in vogue (when you strongly wish, someone could offer just a little help), but Hey! Here we are, the friends in need, to make your life a little (if not much) easier.
