It’s been an interesting week at the South Campus of Delhi University. An upcoming large-scale conference has placed the authorities with a logistical problem. With the event reported to attract an unusually large number of scholars, students, and other flora and fauna. The trouble however is that as a large part of the campus is under green cover and a major number of the people attending the conference have stated they feel queasy around places that could be harbouring animals and birds in it, the authorities have now sought help from the students.
Starting Monday, students of the University are invited to help the officials out in clearing away some of the plant cover as the budget of the conference is not as much as would be needed to accommodate the expense that might be incurred to engage professional help for the matter.
One of the students interested in this drive has said that he views this as an opportunity to increase his bodily strength and also maybe become poetic, what with the interaction with nature this opportunity gives him.
