"We have an executive council meeting on August 31 and we will plan (on reopening colleges) after that. We won't be able to resume from September 1. Whenever we reopen, we will first open for Science students," PTI quoted DU registrar Vikas Gupta as saying.
On Monday, the Delhi government issued SOPs for reopening of schools and colleges. Mandatory thermal screening, staggered lunch breaks, alternate seating arrangements in classrooms and avoiding routine guest visits are among the guidelines.
A Delhi University student, in a tweet, said, “What's the point of studying online only to get a degree and be clueless?”
"..Can you just imagine the pain of studying PDFs in laptop?! A year gone and it's enough now. Not because I want to go out or enjoy college life, but because I am not learning anything." "What's the point of graduating from a prestigious college like Delhi University?" the Twitter user said.
Came across this piece on Instagram. It was written by one of my college mate (same year). And I don't think someone else could explain that helpless feel of students more accurately.

The Delhi University was shut since March last year due to Covid-19 pandemic. This year in February, the university allowed final year students to return to colleges for accessing labs and take practical classes. However, the classes were suspended again in April due to the second wave of Covid-19.
