It is not every day that one gets to see MIT students debating on technical issues. Today was one such day when the final rounds of Tech Debate organized by ISTE took place in NLH 305, on 10th March 6pm onwards.

Four participants had qualified for the 2nd round. A one on one debate was held between two participants at a time on the topic ‘Cloud Computing should be privatised’. The judges also put up questions to the participants checking their technical knowledge and presence of mind. One of the participants Dhruv Srivastava of first year said ‘It is a really nice initiative taken by ISTE where you have to speak technically and not any random stuff’. A volunteer of ISTE, Pooja also seconded the opinion saying that a good technical knowledge is needed by participants to make a stand in the competition.

Two participants had a debate in the finals on the topic ‘Invasion of Technology in private space’.

The first position was bagged by Arjun Jamil and the runner up was Anurakti. The winner got a cash prize of Rs 3000.
