Debate Competition Manifesto for Vikram University
"The philosophy of the classroom in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next” - Abraham Lincoln
Why you should join Debate Competition?
The pen is mightier than the sword. But it's important to comprehend the sheer magnitude of the depth of this old saying. From job search to putting what's on your mind on paper. Everything will be flawless.
You will need to look convincing in your next presentation or when giving a speech that could potentially change the world (for example) on climate change. Debate competition will help you a lot.
Arguments further the development of the world. A great skill to have for your life is to learn and grow yourself. To be closer to the truth.
Why do we come to University?
People usually say its for CGPA? the degree? To get the job? Wrong.
We come to university to become articulate. That's power, competence, and authority. The transferable skills that will serve you for most of your life, from writing a love letter to defending yourself in the court of law, you will need the power of writing.
Writing is sophisticated thinking. You can tangibly see your thinking in front of your eyes.
Great arguments further the development of the world. And arguments when they are great usually stem from the fact they had to be well thought out and well written before publishing.
The preparation for debate will make you do research and do the writing.
The act of winning a debate may not give any reward, but the process and struggle you go through formulating your argument will stay with you for the rest of your life.
