Over the past one month, DU Beat has endeavored to highlight the glorious achievements of the students, societies, professors and entrepreneurs of University of Delhi through various year end series like the individual college round ups, sports highlights, off campus college achievements, various society features, placements highlights and so on.
Year around too, we at DUB have tried our best to bring to our avid readers, the stories that underline the relevance of DU on the map of India, be it through the coverage on FYUP strikes and subsequent roll back ,DU being ranked number one in India according to QS World University Rankings or celebrating the achievements of mountaineer Saachi Soni, the young Sarpanch of Lilawali, Rajasthan- Vasundhara Chaudhary, best selling author Satyarth Nayak and University gold medalist in shooting Aayushi Gupta.
However, having talked about achievements and glorifying highlights, it is imperative to look on the other side of the coin, which is not as rosy. The same University that tops rankings for ’employee reputation’ has professors with alleged naxalite associations. The University that allows admission to no one but the cream, puts up an already seen, already solved question paper in a course as prestigious as the B. Com (Honors).
Keeping all of this in mind, here’s a timeline showing all what dark moments took place at University of Delhi in the year 2014 ans 2015, which should never be repeated in the history of DU.
We hope that the University of Delhi and associated concerned officials will take the right steps to ensure prevention of any such incidents in the upcoming year at Delhi University.
