English Debating Society
The ‘DebSoc’ has a long and illustrious history, during the course of which it has consistently produced and nurtured quality debaters who have won numerous national and international debate competitions. Many have gone on to careers in the fields of television broadcasting, print journalism, academics, film-making and other forms of communication. Furthermore, the DebSoc directly traces its lineage to the unique institution of the Hindu College Parliament, which served as an important platform during India’s freedom struggle and was addressed by such luminaries as Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Maulana Azad and M.A. Jinnah. The society conducts two debates each year- the Premchand Memorial Parliamentary Debate and the Thadani Memorial Debate, both being extremely prestigious across the country.
