To that end, if you were looking to have your thoughts challenged or expand your outlook of the world this week has definitely delivered. Throughout the week plenty of motions were tabled and thorn through by these debaters. Among others was the motion that “This House would Kill Baby Hitler”. Morbid I suppose, but a legit discussion nevertheless. I mean do you take Godly matters into your own hands and execute old pencil mustached supremacist, or do you exercise some humanity and let history play itself out, allowing 6 million people to die. This all with the assumption that time travel is a thing and we have a time machine ready to go assuming we decide to execute baby Hitler.
The week was followed by many other exciting debates and the final day was wrapped up with an activity called “Make an Ad”. Essentially each participant is to play marketing officer for a day and market to their wits end any random item they are given. A challenge for one’s creativity and spontaneity for sure.
To that end, it could not have been a success without the participation of the debaters namely; Yogesh, Harvind Raja Gopal, Gajelan Rajkumar, Vigna, Joshua, Thamiin, Amir Raof, Huwaini and Mohd Alif. The winners for the Make an Ad segment were Yuvanesh, Ammar and Kannan. A big thank you also to Miss Hashvini as well for judging a few rounds.
