The Eristic Union, a debating society
The Eristic Union, a debating society associated with the Association for Parivartan of Nation (NGO) which is working for socially maltreated and backward groups of our society. Our debating society will organise debates over the matters concerning various social and other issues and primarily focus to encourage and to energize students to have a strong and active discussion.
A debate is a formal discussion where opposing arguments are being put forth in a methodized and ordered manner by different side and each side seeks to prevail over his audience. It is a very interesting method to develop discernment and knowledge for both debaters and audience over a particular issue and to end up with the different point of views of every aspect.
It is a platform for chivalrous debaters to show their ratiocinative and thoughtful approach with fine communicating skills and proper elucidation with a proper discourse in a colloquy. It is also an ideal rostrum for neophytes to conduct debates and polish their skills and to make them capable of competing and contesting debates at the highest level. It enables contestants as well as an audience to build up their intellect, curiosity and broader their ambit of mind to build their calibre of discourse.
As a coordinator of Eristic Union, Debating society of APNA , it has been a great pleasure for me to be a part of this organization which works on its principle of….. .
There is a lot to do in thriving the debators by developing a good environment for discourse. And also we need to achieve fetching up with fruitful conclusions over raging issues regarding social, economical, historical, political, legal matters and various issues. The motto of our debating society is “Know Thyself” which encourage contenders to go beyond the limits in order to know their calibre and helps them to bring out the best of themselves. Our aim is to set a platform which promotes a debating culture and improves art of speaking as well.
The debate competitions will be organised once in a while over a topic of discourse for law as well as non law students. It will create a nexus by exchange of ideas and enhance contention skills among the students. And I hope that we all together will come up with our efforts striving to ensure always a progressive debate. At last, I would like to end by saying an eloquent quote —
“We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care of what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far .”
