Debating is an art that allows one to put forward opinions, open up to new ideas, indulge in active and healthy discourse and widen your world view. It helps learners to see the power of deploying rational, reasoned arguments and compelling evidence in action. It enables them to elucidate their standpoint by utilizing rhetorical eloquence. It instils in debaters a great sense of poise and confidence. It teaches them the skills of researching, organizing, and presenting information in a compelling fashion.
The beauty of debate is that it teaches the art of persuasion, the skill of identifying issues with sound logic and proposing solutions with the use of persuasive rhetoric, while enrapturing the audience.
With this in mind, we, here at Symbiosis Law School, NOIDA, took upon ourselves to organize an annual National Parliamentary Debate Competition.
With a hunger for knowledge and a drive to provide a platform to debtors, par none, we successfully organized the Inaugural Edition of Symiksha – National Parliamentary Debate Competition (Symiksha – Vaad, Vivaad, Prativaad) on January 05- 07, 2019.
The event, a huge success, saw the participation of esteemed debaters from across the nation. They indulged in dynamic, nerve-wracking debates, on motions, on themes across the spectrum, each of which was analyzed immensely and to its absolute depth.
The Debating Society, along with the Organising Committee, is more than pleased to, and incredibly proud, to bring you the Second Edition of Symiksha, National Parliamentary Debate Competition, to carry forward and help grow the legacy which we wish to establish.
The said Competition will be a platform for debaters and adjudicators, both experienced and novices to come and be a part of the ongoing conversation on ideas and opinions prevalent, and relevant today. It will be a platform that will not only allow them to polish their oratory and argumentation skills, but also come together as the youth of the 21st century, to share their ever-changing opinions, widen outlooks, and change perceptions.
With a drive to achieve the same, we present to you Symiksha’s Second Edition, from September 21- 23, 2019.
