Report of the Debate
THE ABBAS AMERJEE DEBATE 2012
The annual Abbas Amerjee Memorial Debate, organised
in memory of a Xaverian, the late Abbas Amerjee, who was a
keen debater and an excellent student , was organised by
X-CALBIRE, the Debate Society of St. Xavier's Collegiate
School, on 9th November 2012. This year, wordsmiths from
all sections of Classes 11 and 12 crossed swords in an
impressive battle of content and wit, on the motion - "THIS
HOUSE BELIEVES THAT INDIANS WOULD RATHER BUILD MEMORIALS TO
THEIR LEADERS THAN FOLLOW THEIR PRECEPTS". Moderated by
Xaverian Dr. Sandip Chatterjee, the best speaker was awarded
to Master Anubhab Haldar of Class 12 A. Master Anish Kanoria
of Class 11 D and Master Anshuman Mohan, were declared First
Runner Up and Best Interjector respectively.
Gratitude goes to our distinguished judging panel (Mr. R.
Raman, Mr. N. Ritchie and Mr. S.Mitra), our Principal, Fr.
B.Thomas SJ and our Vice-Principals Fr. B.D'Santos and Fr.
P. Arockiam. We also thank our teachers in-charge Mr.
A.B.Singh and Ms. M.Joseph for shouldering many thankless
duties both before, during and after the debate as also to
