August 12, 2016 :- Inter House English Debate

On 12 August 2016, the stage was set for the fiery Inter House English Debate. The topic was very unusual, and should we say, poetic? Taking a cue from the poem by Rober Frost, The Road Not Taken, students had, for the debate, the following lines :

I took the road less travelled by
And that has made all the difference

Students speaking For the motion, vehemently put forth their arguments saying that a difference can be made in the world only by people who decide to chart out and follow their own paths. Students speaking against the motion argued that success lies in following the tried and tested path, as life is too short and does not give us time to realize our mistakes midway and start all over again.

Irrespective of whether they were speaking for or against the motion, all students spoke eloquently with great poise and confidence. It was an event which was not only enjoyed by the students and educators, but also set everyone thinking.

The results were as follows :

  • First Position: Kalam House
  • Second Position: Dhyanchand House
  • Third Position: Narayanmurthy House
  • Fourth Position : Kurien House

Speaking For the Motion

I      -     Janhavi Upadhyay     Dhyanchand House
II     -     Khyati Vyas               Narayanmurthy House

Speaking Against the Motion

I     -     Aasth Kapoor              Kalam House
II    -     Tanishka Goswami     Dhyanchand House
