Emotions ran high. So did the intentions. There was grit. Vigour! Passion! Then there were fierce debators of CET who fought tooth and nail. Till the very end!
“For good ideas and true innovation, you need human interaction, conflict,argument and Debate”.

Thus the LITREAT 2K15 presents the debate hour i.e  “MUDDA- Matters that matter”, a combination of rhetoric group discussion and debating.
