“It is better to debate a question without settling it than to settle a question without debating it.”
War of the Words is the college level debating extravaganza conducted during Aarohan. The soul of India is its democracy and the heartbeat must be the debates as heard from the by- lanes of small towns to the parliament, giving hope for every citizen to be heard and his ideas represented. War of the Words has provided the platform to the college crowd in voicing their opinions, addressing the generation's take on social and political scenarios of the country and beyond. Since its maiden episode in 2011, it has been a towering journey with both in-campus and off-campus participation congregating in large number.
In its latest edition in 2012, War of the Words offered Oxford style of debating in its prelims. Besides the host Institute, participants hailed from the Jadavpur University, Scottish Church College, Presidency College, St. Xavier's College , Ashutosh College, IIT Kharagpur, to name a few. The four finalists battled it out in the finals with the American Parliamentary style of debating, giving us one winner.
The debate will be a modified Oxford Style debate in the first level and American Parliamentary style debate in the second one. The motions for the debate will be announced a couple of weeks in advance on the website. There will be a total of ten selected teams: 8 out- station and 2 from NIT Durgapur.The registration for instation and outstation participants open till 3rd February 2013.Please register by sending a mail to email@example.com
The teams battle it out in the modified Oxford style. The ten teams will be divided into two groups, each group comprising of five teams (sorting done on the basis of drawing of lots). The two groups occupy the floor in turns, i.e., at a time only one group occupies the floor. In each group a modified oxford style debate will be conducted and the cumulative scores of each team will help determine the top two teams of each group. So a total of four teams will come out of the first level of debate. Each team shall have two and only two members.
This will be American Parliamentary style of debating with the qualifying four teams. The four teams now occupy the floor. Two teams represent the ‘proposition’ speaking ‘in favour’ of the motion and two teams represent the ‘opposition’ speaking ‘against’ the motion. The order and timing of the speech is as follows:
Teams will be marked on:

“The entrepreneur always searches for change, responds to it, and exploits it as an opportunity.”
What sets an entrepreneur apart from the crowd??? It’s his belief in owning the racecourse rather than
racing the horse, his power of vision and turning it into reality. But ideas are like legs, they serve us no
good if we can’t run them. Thus it necessitates the demand of a platform which gives the opportunity to
such budding enthusiasts who are ready to fly, but lack wings. Aarohan 2013 undertakes the responsibility
of being the perfect launch-pad for such innovators and guiding them before they are ready to take off.
In its eleventh edition, Aarohan brings to you the B-plan competition, which embraces participation of all
young entrepreneurs willing to showcase their entrepreneurial schemes and propose its feasibility in the
long run. Their proposals will be debated and interrogated by our experienced judges’ panel com Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sentprising
of shrewd business minds, which will mentor them and help their plans turn into successful business
endeavours. The search for leaders of tomorrow is on!
B-plans will be judged by our esteemed panel of judges.
The best ideas, judged on the financial viability and sustainability, organizational capacity building,
legal advice, communications & marketing and more, will get incubation and further mentorship support.
With a view to inculcating research culture in our higher education

"All genius is a conquering of chaos and mystery."
Lets complicate things a little. Do you see mysteries and complications wherever you go and you have
never yet met a steadily logic person till date who thinks like you, then contraptions is the place for you.
Making the complicated simple is commonplace but making the simple complicated : awesomely
complicated, thats creativity.
Its not always about wrapping up events in a finite number of sequences but to see a simple step getting
completed in a series of tedious steps is amusing.
Contraptions requires you to complete a simple event into a series of breath-taking and uncommon steps
that were never thought of otherwise. A little planning in the right direction, patient thinking and efficient
handling of materials can take you places. If you always find complicated answers to simplest of questions,
then contraptions is going to quench your thirst. The judging criteria is the innovativeneses, the exclusivity
and not to forget, the madness !!!!

"Do one thing every day that scares you"
Theme : what inspires those who inspire us”
Do one thing every day that scares you-Eleanor Roosevelt
Words of inspiration have been the source of sanguinity that drove the people to be what they are, to bloom in adversity and show others the way even when they were broke. They are the reason for upheaval, revolution and the difference that great minds made to the world. The apple that fell on Newton on a fateful afternoon changed the way we look at the physical world today. History is fraught with examples of people who were inspired by trifle things or moved by great events of the world. Whatever they may have been they were still sources of inspiration for great works performed in every imaginable field- from the social sciences to statistical computing!
Aarohan 2013, the annual techno management fest of national Institute of Technology, Durgapur brings to you Inspiratie 2013, the ideal podium where we get to hear their stories, who refused to quit, dared to breach the norms and envisage the idea of a progressive society! Come, dive into the elusive world of these creative geniuses in their own right, and get lost in a world where possibilities are endless-where the sight of a pin could become the vision of tomorrow’s wonder gadget! Experience their joys of discovery as they narrate their stories of hardships and vibrant encounters to you.
So this Aarohan, let’s inspire and get inspired!
