New Delhi: Prodding the college students to speak up for the women empowerment, leading global humanitarian organisation CARE India today partnered with Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies, Delhi, to organise a Turncourt in which speakers vociferously debated on the plight of women in India.
 
The event, as part of the three-day annual cultural festival of the college titled Crescendo 2012, was held at Delhi Haat at Pitampura. CARE India that has been actively working for bettering the lives of women over sixty years was the CSR partner for the grand fest as part of its ongoing iCARE campaign that seeks to rope in the support of one million youths to voice for the women issues.
 
``Students are most effective carriers of change and the fortunes of Indian women can be improved only if we inculcate the values of equality and fortify them intellectually to fight against the discrimination against women. We are happy to associate with the Turncourt competition that can give a spark to the thoughts of students and prod them to translate the thoughts into action,'' said volunteer engagement coordinator of CARE Ms Natasha Uppal who was the judge for the event.
 
``It was insightful to hear what the students had to say about these controversial topics in this thought-provoking competition,'' she added.
 
Prabhanshu Ojha of Kirori Mal College (KMC), Delhi, won competition that saw student orators debating threadbare the issues faced by the women. Nakul of the Sukhdev College and Adarsh Shukla of KMC finished second and third respectively.
 
The topics given in the first round for debate included `should women join combat forces', `Burka ban in France', `How effective the women politicians are' , `Should there be capital punishment for rape' and `Reservations for girls in IIMs''.  As many as 11 students from different colleges participated in the debating competition.
 
Crescendo is a three day long fest that witnesses participation from all corners of Delhi. With various competitions and programmes throughout the length of the fest and some cool performances by cooler stars, it is one of the biggest fests in Delhi University.
