The discussion forum of Hindu College, Caucus is organizing, “Vaktavya” – The Group Discussion Fest on the 4th and 5th of February, 2010.
Caucus was founded three years back with the objective of promoting group discussion in order to create increased awareness amongst the youth about pressing issues and work towards finding a possible solution. The society believes that group discussions facilitate the amalgamation of the many ideas and thoughts prevailing in the society into an acceptable solution, which is refined through criticism and compromise. This fest is a platform for the participants to voice their opinion about various relevant issues faced by the society, and hence make a difference.
The event has the following format: there will be a total of 5 preliminary group discussions – three will be held on Day-1 and two on Day-2. Two prizes will be awarded in each GD, which will have individual participation. The top 3 speakers from each GD will sit for a final round of group discussion on day 2, in which 3 prizes will be awarded. Cash prizes worth Rs 20,000 will be up for grabs.
