Moment of joy lost by moral policing

Ranchi, Aug. 3: The day was special but Nakshatra Van wore a deserted look. Fear was writ large on the faces of the few couples who were spotted at the park today.

Reason: Yesterday sub-divisional officer Manoj Kumar chased 40 away couples and punished them by asking them to hold their ears.

“I’ve come along with my parents as the day is Sunday,” said a couple sitting near the small pond of Nakshatra Van.

Youngsters headed towards dhabas, Fun Castle and Surya temple instead. “As we do not want to spoil our mood, we have decided to celebrate the day with our friends at Ormanjhi dhaba,” said college student Rashmi Singh.

At XISS, the freshers’ day programme for the marketing and finance department was held today. “We’re glad that we got the freshers’ welcome today, as we got a chance to tie friendship bands to our classmates,” said Akansha Raut, a first-year marketing student of XISS. First-year fresher student of finance management Nishta Singh said the day was very lucky for her. “We got a chance to know each other and also make friends,” she said.

The owner of Aqua World, Pratul Shahdeo, had organised a function, Best Friend, during which participants were quizzed on the likes and dislikes of their friends.

“I’m friends with my father and today was the occasion to express it,” said Mohit Singh, a BIT, Mesra student.
