    They came, they spoke and they conquered, not just the coveted India Today Cup but also the hearts of the judges at the the 15th edition of the inter-school debate competition at Vasant Valley School, Vasant Kunj.

    What made the winning team different from the others was its nationality. For the first time a foreign team - Lahore College of Arts and Sciences (LACAS) from Pakistan - participated in the competition and bagged almost all awards, except for the third best speaker trophy, won by Cathedral and John Connon School, Mumbai. Schools from Kolkata (La Martiniere), Bangalore (Vidyashilp), Gwalior (Scindia School), Chandigarh (Vivek High), Dehradun (The Doon School), Ajmer (Mayo College Girls' School) and Mumbai (Cathedral and John Connon) participated in the two-day event. LACAS and Cathedral and John Connon School made it to the final of the competition.

    Handing out the awards to the winners, Rekha Purie, chairperson, Vasant Valley School, commended the students on their performance. "I congratulate the participants on putting up such a wonderful presentation and wish them the very best of luck," she said.

    Arun Kapur, the director of Vasant Valley School, said: "The unique feature of the event was the debating camp held after the competition, in which each participant was given constructive feedback. The debate followed the conventional style for the preliminary round on Thursday and Cambridge format for the semi-final and final rounds on Friday."

    The topic of the debate was 'International Olympic Committee should ban all countries that commit human rights violations from participating in the Olympics'. The team from LACAS spoke for the motion and Cathedral and John Connon opposed it.

    The three-member team from Lahore, who won the final, favoured severing all ties with countries which were violating the basic rights of their citizens. "The only way of showing our solidarity and expressing our disgust with such countries is to cut all ties with them. Only by isolating them completely can we create a condition that will force them to act in accordance with global human rights conventions," Hashim Bajwa, a Class XII student of LACAS, said.

    His team member, Umar Ali, won the second best speaker, while Parth Jhaveri of Cathedral and John Connon School won the third best speaker award. The team of Cathedral and John Connon School argued that a move of isolating countries that were allegedly violating the rights of their citizens would politicise the games and take away the opportunity from their best athletes to show their talent.

    Dirty Hindoos plan to brainwash -----s..this is unacceptable.

    Hopefully a fatwa will be issued against them for visiting India.. hahaha

    One a more serious note its good to have people coming to debate rationally but then Pakistanis have double language when they are here its one thing and in their country they bark something else

    Seriously keep them at bay neither cultural,educational or economic ties..

    Completely agree. Not even the most "moderate" Paki is worth having any kind of ties with. They are all basically the same when they go back to their nation. We have seen this time and again.
