Hindu College students, who are single, worship 'Damdami Mai', an actress chosen by hostellers each year, at a 'puja' at the 'Virgin Tree' in campus on Valentine's Day. This year, Bollywood actress Disha Patani is the chosen one.
The Times of India quoted Vaibhav Singh, a second-year student and hosteller at Hindu College, as saying, "The second and third-year hostellers have chosen her. We picked her after having a meeting. Along with Disha, one name that was also considered was of Nargis Fakhri, but since most of the guys liked Disha, we have chosen her as our Damdami Mai."
He told the newspaper, "Damdami Mai is usually the actress who has been popular in that particular year, and who is also voted for by the most hostellers. Like always, we will have the puja on the morning of February 14. And a fresher will perform the puja as he will be the pandit for that day. As always, condoms will be used to decorate the Virgin Tree."
The daily reported that it is believed by the students that all those who participate in the 'puja' 'will find the one' within six months, and lose their virginity within a year, of performing the 'puja'.
