“Is the future of Indian Secular democracy at stake or not?” If you would have witnessed the Margaret Gilbert Inter school debate held at Kimmin’s High school in Panchgani, I am certain that your thinking would have matured as twelve skilful debaters from six different schools, armed with research and filled with confidence engaged in a fruitful and a high quality debate. In the end the St. Mary’s boys finished as the first runner up by a narrow margin of one point. But at the end of this magnificent debate all the debaters embraced one another and we had a scrumptious lunch and all of us had something to take back. A friendship which would last a lifetime.
