KSOM’s “KONFABULATE”, Knowledge Dialogue Series organized a unique exercise in dialogism called “VICHAAR”

It was an Impromptu competition in which students of both BBA and MBA participated with a lot of zeal and enthusiasm.

This speech exercise had a distinctive structure since the speakers needed to change sides within a minute without sounding absurd or illogical. In this unique battle of perspectives, there was scope for both fun and learning which not only infused the spirit of healthy competition but also showcased how speakers should go about developing arguments. Appreciating the efforts of everyone for the great success of the event, Prof. Saroj Mohapatra, Director, KSOM said that such contests help students develop “critical thinking” which is an essential skill at the workplace today. Prof. Sumita MIshra, Dean, School of Management, set the context of this competition by highlighting the importance of taking part in such public speaking contests. The members of the jury, Prof. Praveen Mohanty and Prof. Ayushi Raichoudhury were impressed by the way the participants executed their speeches.

Sohini Ghosh of MBA 1st year was adjudicated to be the Winner and Tapaswani Guru of BBA II got the Runner-Up prize. Prizes were given away by Prof. Isa Mishra, Chairperson, KONFABULATE Knowledge Dialogue Series and Dr. Shikta Singh, Chairperson, Student Development Committee. Prof. Ritika Sharma, Co-Chairperson, SDC shared her reflections on the event. Ms. Somya Singh and Ms. Teena Rose Tom did the anchoring. Biswaroop Mohanty and Aman Srivastav contributed significantly as volunteers. In the end, a formal vote of thanks was proposed by Dr. Ipsita Nayak, the Faculty coordinator of the program.
