Debate is one of the most influential and unparalleled academic activities to allow creative leeway to the students to assert their verdicts on an issue, and also hone their analytical and elocution skills. More than a mere verbal skill, debate embodies the ideal of reasoned arguments, tolerance for divergent point of views and rigorous self-examination.
