Indraprastha College, University of Delhi wins 2015 Titans Cup. The Titans Cup Debate is an annual debate organized by the Hindu College alumni association and consists of 6 teams of alumni. Each team comprises two members, one speaking for and the other against the motion.
While speakers for the motion spoke passionately on the West's hypocrisy on environmental standards, speakers against the motion argued equally forcefully that climate change was a life and death issue and too important to become hostage to politics between rich and poor countries.
The debate spanned many issues in the growth versus ecology dilemma. While law student Harsh Jain of SRCC argued that for developing countries its all about roti kapda aur makaan and not following western diktat, Usha Kelkar, Ashoka Fellow and alumna of Indraprastha College said we only target the West because we need an enemy to blame for our environmental failures. "The anti-West discourse on climate change is only a manufactured narrative for strategic reasons," she said.
Indraprastha College was adjudged the best team and won the Titans Cup this year. The runner up was Hindu College. The best speaker award went to Nita Chowdhury and runner-up was Akash Banerjee.
