A bunch of single male students from Delhi’s Hindu College worshipped Disha Patani on Valentine’s Day and decorated something called a ‘virgin tree’ with condoms.
Yes. Turns out the practice has been going on for years in Hindu College and it is called the ‘Damdami Mai’ puja wherein Damdami Mai is a female actor chosen by hostel students every year.
For this, they conduct a proper Puja on the morning of February 14. The Puja is performed by a fresher, who is the pandit for that day and then condoms are used to decorate the Virgin Tree.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.”
