Rohit Vivek - Creator of Prime Time

How it all started:

"Sharing good experiences is more fulfilling than keeping them to ourselves." 

It was this philosophy that inspired me to conceptualize, "Prime Time" - a platform for aspiring debaters. Being someone who has found debating to be a truly enriching experience, I wanted to create a platform to help young aspiring debaters learn the nuances of debating as my peers and I did. Many discussions and brainstorming sessions later, the first edition of Prime Time was launched between the 2nd and 7th of June, 2020.

This initiative met with an enthusiastic response from students too, so much so that the initial limit of twenty four students had to be expanded to seventy eight. New concepts are best understood when a good foundation is laid - this applies to debating too, hence, a three day intensive workshop was conducted for the participants by a team consisting of experienced student debaters. Thus equipped, the contestants were put through five rounds of competitive debates culminating in the grand finale and the declaration of the winner and runner up. Each participant was given detailed feedback on debates along with tips on how to improve after every round.

Energized by the enthusiastic response of the first edition, we have decided to take Prime Time to a greater level - a national level. For future sessions of Prime Time, training will be conducted by experienced college debaters so as to raise the bar and to impart state of the art tips to aspiring debaters. This is to equip participants with world-class debating experience. 

The ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu once said, "A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step," and Prime Time is your partner for that all important first step in your debating journey.
