Chandigarh's 'hot-spot': Despite many alternatives PU's Students' Centre remains quite popular

PU Student Centre Fountain Cha"Students have made this an area for holding protests and conducting violent acts, due to which it has lost its sanctity," he added.


"I still visit Stu-C with my friends, having passed out five years back. It always revives beautiful memories. It has been a famous place for all," said Brinder Dhillon, an alumnus of the laws department.

Joy, the head waiter of the Indian Coffee House, has spent more than a decade there.

"The tastes and preferences of the students have changed over the years. Every year there is a decrease in the number of students that come to the cafeteria. Earlier people had to wait in long queues to get a place," he said.

"Usually it's the older faculty members that come here. This place is not very popular amongst the present generation," he noted with disappointment.

"The taste of south Indian food has not changed in these years. It is my all-time favourite spot," said Sarita Jindal, alumnus and faculty member at PU.

During festivals like Lohri, Diwali and Holi, the Stu-C has its own charm with a celebratory atmosphere. Hundreds of students and visitors converge here and scores can be seen shaking a leg to the loud music played by a DJ.
