It is better to debate a question without settling it than to settle a question without debating it.
Debating is about gaining broad, multi-faceted knowledge cutting across several disciplines.
Debate helps learners to see power of deploying rational, reasoned arguments and compelling
evidence in action. It enhances the ability to structure and organize thoughts. It instills a great
sense of poise and confidence. Thus, we present you a stage to execute your ideas, deliberate
and contest expressions and take the high note. Catalyst presents the classic conventional
form of debating to enshrine and express your thoughts!
