Devansh Mehta, the suspended editor of a student e-zine banned by St Stephen’s Principal Valson Thampu moved the Delhi High Court seeking a stay on the action against him taken by the college on disciplinary grounds. The Delhi High Court stayed his suspension, issued a notice to the college principal and barred the college from awarding the prize that was withdrawn from the student to anyone else until the next date of hearing.

Mehta, who did his schooling in Mumbai from St Mary’s School, attributes his “courage” to his parents. “My father belonged to a business family, but he decided to break away from everything to pursue his dream of becoming a financial consultant. He is a lone wolf. If there is anything I have learnt from him, it is that you don’t need to have a big crowd to support you if you are right. And you don’t have to be afraid of being alone either,” Mehta says.
“My mother has taught me to be calm and composed. She never loses her temper, and neither do I,” he adds. Devansh’s mother has her own textile export business.

Mehta topped his fifth semester exams, and is part of quizmasters and philosophy clubs at St Stephen’s. Students and teachers talk of Mehta as a “helpful, curious and eccentric child”.
