What is a debate? Debate is a process that involves formal discussion of a particular given topic where the opposing arguments are put forward to argue for opposing viewpoints. Once Margaret Heffernan said that for good ideas and true innovation, we need human interaction, conflict, argument, debate.

This project “ Point of order” is based on a debate competition which was conducted for the board members of the Rotaract club of IIT, that helped them to improve their public speaking skills and team building skills. Throughout this competition, there were teams of two given the topic of whether death convictions are effective as a punishment or not. The supporting team had to talk about how death convictions are effective while the opposing team spoke about how death convictions are not effective. The competition came to an end by providing certificates for the winners of the competition, Rtr,Umesha, Rtr Ishfaaq, Rtr Shadim, Rtr Wishwa and Rtr Hakeem, who were in the opposing team.
