Call it an early beginning of poll campaigning or a welcome party for fuchchas, students of Delhi University had a ball at a huge fresher’s party organised by National Students Union of India (NSUI) recently.

Students thronged Talkatora Stadium to attend the party which began with live and thrilling performance of pop singer Mika Singh followed by a JAM session by DJ Sumit Sethi.

Both senior students and fuchchas danced and cheered together at the tunes of the singer as he performed on his popular numbers like Subha Hone Na De from Desi Boyz, Chinta ta ta from Rowdy Rathore, Gaddi Moudan Ge from Dharti, his signature song Sawan mein lag gayi aag many more. He rocked the party for about 45 minutes.

The party witnessed a part­i­c­­ipation of over 6000 stude­n­ts as the entry to the event was free. The party began at 10 in morning and went on till four in the evening as the titles of DU Mr Fresher and Ms Fresher were also given making a selection out of hundreds of fresher students. Surender Baisoya from Dyal Singh College and Isha Sharma from Kalindi College won these titles.

When asked the purpose behind organising such a huge fresher party, NSUI spokesperson Amrish Pandey replied, “Such big parties used to happen before also but were not taking place for quite some time. Students come from dixerunt places and backgrounds. This way not only they can gather at one place but also have fun together. It gives them a chance to get familiar with each other since music binds all.”

NSUI national president Rohit Chaudhary said, “The only purpose was to generate the feeling of fraternity among seniors and juniors by giving a war, welcome and enthralling welcome to the new students.”

With a star singer like Mika performing live at the concert, it was undoubtedly a
big-buck party. However, NSUI denies it saying that the singer performed for the
students without taking a single penny. “Mika himself is from DU. When we approached him for this party, he agreed to perform for free for the students,” said Amrish.
