Nirmal Abraham was adjudged champion at ‘Speak Tackle’, a National Level Debate Championship held at INSTITUTE OF FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT AND RESEARCH, CHENNAI. The contest involved various rounds that kicked off with a JAM (Just A Minute), a popular game that evolved from the BBC radio show wherein the contestants are asked to speak on a specified topic for a minute with utmost lexical perfection with their counterparts waiting to point out grammatical errors, fillers or any signs of fumbling or faltering that may occur in the process to grab their opportunity to score! Even the slightest of pauses were worthy enough to be ‘Jammed’ as per the rules of the game but Nirmal won the round rather comfortably taking a lead of 10 points moving into the second round where he had to fight it out with other contestants in a one and one debate on various topics provided by the Judging panel. The third and the most interesting round was ‘time travel’, a product launch travelling back in time, which involved preparation of props, slides and a roleplay that emphasized the importance & utility of the product. Over 20 colleges participated in the event with contestants from Loyola Institute of Business Administration Chennai and IFIM Bangalore, finishing second and third respectively.
