It was not just any other day for the 30 students of Delhi University who boarded Delhi Metro’s Yellow Line on Friday, to reach North Campus. Well, how could it be, for their co-passenger was none other than the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi!

Boarding the train from Lok Kalyan Marg and getting off at Vishwavidyalaya to attend the closing ceremony of DU’s centenary celebrations, the PM won many hearts on the go. Shalu Mishra, a second-year BCom student at Bharati College, says, “Our PM is way too cool! He knows everything about what youngsters are up to these days. He knew the lingo and phrases we use — from K-Nags to ‘Momos ki bhookh lagi hai’ — spots we frequent at Satya Niketan and where we hang out in Kamla Nagar.” And Drishti Gautam, first-year BA (Prog) student at Maharaja Agrasen College, adds, “He told us how college is not just about the degree. It’s about learning skills and making memories.”
