The program started with a lamp lighting ceremony and distinguished by the presence of Mr. Rammeshwar (convenor) , Ms. Namita , Ms. Promila , and Ms. Ruby Roy as the panel of judges. Participants were free to choose any medium of language either English or Hindi but it had to be followed throughout. The topics that were chosen for extempore debate were very peculiarly picked i.e. there should be no marks reserved for attendance,privatization of higher education, cinema takes us away from the reality, valentine day is not a part of Indian culture, India is on the verge of becoming a global power, and so on. All contestants spectacularly presented their views at the drop of a hat without any anticipation. They didn’t fail to cover whole nine yards about the given topic.
