About Adhkiaar: Battle of Words

Debate is a valuable activity for students of all skill levels. Debate teaches useful skills for other academic pursuits and life more generally. Most obviously, debaters build confidence speaking in public and expressing their ideas eloquently.

That comfort speaking in front of others is useful in so many areas of life, from interviews to school presentations to discussions in college seminars. Debating could develop a sense of responsibility in the young generation as they will know specific global and domestic issues and ways in which they can solve those problems.

Thus, as a part of its Social Fest, Abhyuday presents to you its debate competition – Adhikaar; to encourage students to express their views on various social issues faced by the Generation Z while debating; as the benefits of debating are not only limited to the skills built while students are speaking but the preparation for competition also teaches its participants critical thinking and research skills.
