Bunking classes to eat

Students of Dayananda Sagar Institutions (known as Dynamites) consider themselves privileged. In spite of being far from the popular city hot spots, they still have plenty of places to hangout around their college.   

They admit that they bunk classes so they have plenty of spare time. Thanks to their sprawling campus they can sit on the plush green grass, on the steps leading to the temple or under the trees. A few hang out at the gym but restaurants located near their institute are the most popular places to be seen at. Most of the time the eateries around the college are jam-packed. One regular customer is Neeledu Jemshedpur, a third semester engineering student. “For tea and coffee, I hang out at Swati Sagar. If I fancy chicken noodles, chilly chicken or tandoori items then ‘Dine Out’ is the place. We friends often go for night out to places along Airport Road racing on our bikes. We share the thrilling experience with other friends the next day,” he says. Sitting beside him, his buddy Ankan Mukhopadyay adds, “No matter where they study, students do the same stuff everywhere. Hanging out with friends, eating and chatting at regular joints.”

  Moutrisha, a fifth semester engineering student, favours a newly opened restaurant called ‘Residence’ at lunch time. “Our group loves the Chinese food here,” she says. Utsav is a sport buff but the college campus lacks a cricket ground. “During college hours, I surf the net in the library. However, social networking sites like Orkut are banned on campus,” he admits.
The campus itself has a multi-cuisine food outlet which is a favourite with girl students who don’t wish to brave the rush outside.
