CHINTAN-THE DEBATING SOCIETY

CHINTAN - BHARATI COLLEGE DEBATING SOCIETY

I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

- Evelyn Beatrice Hall

The foundations of modern democratic society are built on the principles of debate and discussion. Founded in 2012, Chintan- the Debating society of Bharati College strives to inculcate the art of public speaking among students as an important contribution to the civic and political life of the nation. . The very term- “Chintan”- means effective thought, reflection and deliberations on important topics.

Aims
  • To hone the intellectual and oratory skills of students.
