A girl in P.G. Women's Hostel in DU wades through legs deep water

A girl tries to wade through water at the P.G. Women’s Hostel in Delhi University.

The students at DU this year are the worst hit beginning with the half hearted introduction of the semester system–in some courses–by the administration, which never went well with the lecturers, to being evacuated from the hostels for the Commonwealth Games 2010, to breathing in dust filled air and walking on broken footpaths and mudslides owing to the CWG construction and now the wrath of the monsoon and an annoyed river for the city’s governing agencies’ disrespect for Nature and the Yamuna River and its floodplain.
