The Face Off
Pressure Makes Diamonds: Peer and Parental Pressure was the topic chosen for the debate, as it was something the students could relate to and talk about their experiences.
Ragini Ramanujam, alumnus batch of 2020-21, moderated the debate. The debaters spoke on both aspects of the topic, laced with seriousness and humour. Their convincing arguments left the audience with much food for thought. The participants faced the rebuttals with confidence. The participants displayed a sound analysis of the topic while facing impromptu questions from the audience.
The Principals of TBSG, TBSW, and dignitaries from the Brigade Foundation attended the event. The students of Std 9- 12, including the students from TBSG and TBSW, were a keen audience. They posed questions to the debate participants.
