Under fire from various sections of the educational society for not doing anything to add to the skills of students, Delhi University has come up with yet another revolutionary programme to enhance employability of graduates. The varsity is planning to introduce a number of basic courses, very similar to the foundation courses that came along with the long-scrapped FYUP in 2013.
DU has been voted the country’s best University year after year. The University has been a path-breaker and trend setter in terms of academic reforms. Keeping up with the reputation (and also because they keep coming around to promote their movies anyway), DU has decided to rope in celebrities to teach these courses.
The first course to be taught will be ‘Bal Vikas’, a hair cutting and maintenance course. According to our sources, the course will be taught by veteran actor Anupam Kher. The course will be taught via extensive use of information technology and sufficient practical exposure will be ensured.
Professor Kamal Razorwala of the Department of Social Sciences explained that such a course will ensure adaptability of students in today’s fast-changing corporate environment, in which the needs of industries are dynamic.
University officials are tight-lipped about the programme but other useful courses rumoured to be a part of it include ‘The Art of Perfectly Round Rotis’.
