Our society is constructed to place quieter people at a disadvantage. The voice of the marginalised is often overshadowed by the voice of the powerful. A debate offers a safe platform to open ourselves to positive discussion and provides a safe environment for learning how to brush off your mistakes, learn from them and ultimately move forward. The last two decades has seen an uproar of intelligence and excellence. In the tussle between knowledge and experience, students often lose out on communication skills. A debate aids in providing a platform for the students to experiment and learn.

A debate drastically improves one’s linguistic and logical skills, along with the ability to construct strong arguments in a short amount of time, which is paramount in this world with cutthroat competition. Our debate competition aims to provide the students with an opportunity to come forward and experience the art of debating and take away experience, expertise and excellence. Being a part of the newer generations, it is imperative to discuss and debate over the problems in society and any solutions for the same that may arise as students and future lawmakers of the country.

This debate will be based on the Lincoln-Douglas debate format, i.e. one on one debate in order to promote individualism amongst contestants. Participants will have to advance in 3 rounds, with Preliminary and Semi-Finals having the topic “Does cultural appropriation promote the heritage of a community or hamper it?” and the Final round having the topic “Is language/accent another basis for Racial Discrimination?”
