Delhiites Speak

Rishya Dutt, 16, Student

Well, growing up in Delhi isn’t exactly last autumn’s dream. Wanting to build a future in a city where everybody is a somebody and nobody is a nobody, has been challenging for a while. “From admission in a college to entry at a club, the city makes us realise we have to keep attesting our self-worth, almost everyday,” says Rishya Dutt, a commerce student at Bloom Public School, Vasant Kunj. She loves her Forever 21s, Zaras and Mangoes and all that’s bright and shiny and stuck to a tag at a shopping mall. A straight-A student, Dutt was shortlisted from over 2,000 students for a cultural exchange programme to Japan’s Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University. She feels getting into a good Delhi University college is at par, if not better than studying at a foreign university of repute.

“If we work hard to keep pace with the city’s demands, we also know how to enjoy the city’s offerings”
