High Court lets Delhi University declare results of its presidential elections on Wednesday

But, the court said, the outcome of the poll will be subject to that of a petition filed by NSUI candidate Rocky Tuseed, whose nomination papers were rejected.

The Delhi High Court on Tuesday allowed the Delhi University to declare the results of its students union’s presidential election, PTI reported. The votes for the Delhi University Students Union election, which was held on Tuesday, will be counted on Wednesday.

The High Court modified its previous directive on September 8 – telling the university not to count the votes for the presidential post and to keep it sealed – after the varsity moved a plea saying that partial counting of votes was not possible, as the polling was done using electronic voting machines.

Justice Indermeet Kaur of the High Court, however, said the outcome of the poll “will be subject to the outcome of the main petition” filed by Congress-affiliated National Students Union of India’s presidential candidate, Rocky Tuseed.

In its earlier interim order on September 8, the Delhi High Court had allowed Tuseed to contest the election by setting aside the September 7 directive of the Delhi University’s Chief Election Officer. The court had said that Tuseed can participate and campaign for the election, but told the varsity to not declare the result.

Tuseed had approached the court after the varsity’s poll panel rejected his nomination because of disciplinary action taken against him in 2014. The court had then said that the university was “stigmatising” the student and asked how a warning could be termed a disciplinary action.

A musical remix, a delectable dish and a taxi makeover

What do these three works of art have in common?

What connects Raghav Sachar, Ranveer Brar and Taxi Fabric? On the surface, nothing at all. Sachar is known for his genius musical abilities, Brar a chef loved for demystifying food while the essence of Taxi Fabric goes way beyond its name. All three operate, and thrive, in unconnected domains. Upon looking closer, though, a common thread emerges between their work so far - an unmistakable streak of creativity.

Raghav Sachar is a singer, composer and film scorer who was featured in a National Geographic series, My Brilliant Brain, for his prodigious musical abilities - he can effortlessly switch between male and female vocals and play over 30 musical instruments! His adaptations of old Bollywood songs, shot in a multi-screen format, have been especially well received on the Internet.

Ranveer Brar is a well-known chef who is working to expand the idea of food. He has appeared in culinary shows as diverse as Masterchef India, Great Indian Rasoi, Thank God It’s Fryday and Food Tripping. Brar’s work in food media isn’t merely instructional, he seeks to deep dive into food - to the very science of it and its endless aesthetic possibilities. Brar is also a phenomenal food stylist who approaches food presentation as no less than an art, and himself as no less than a food artiste.

Taxi Fabric is a startup that turns taxi seat covers into canvases for artists. Through Taxi Fabric, artists have found a medium to unleash their creativity and activism onto Mumbai’s roads – the iconic kaali peelis. If you get lucky on a Mumbai street, you may hop into a world of Mumbai’s chawls, surrealist Persian architecture, Chandni Chowk and more in your short taxi ride.

The latest projects from these three creatives have a connection too - the same muse, presented by Flipkart. The muse inspired Raghav Sachar to recreate one of his own songs ‘Baahon Mein Tu Aaja’. Watch his new version of the song below.

Chef Ranveer Brar, meanwhile, dipped into his food styling instinct to create a beautiful dish. You can watch his piece of culinary art below.

Taxi Fabric brought on board Arun Chanchal, a graphic designer who describes his aesthetic as geometric surrealism. Watch the stunning result of their collaboration below.
