On 11th February 2021, a very amusing and delightful event was organized in our college. This event was Declamation. Declamation is a style of public speaking that is artistic. It is a dramatic oration intended to convey the full meaning of the text being transmitted through articulation, emphasis and gesture.
A total of 16th students from various department took part in it. They represented various motivational speakers, poets, actors, wrestlers and many more interesting characters. It was really tough to judge and point out the best one from them but not everyone can be a winner. The top three winners were:
- Yoezer Dema – 3 IT
- Salim Pradhan – 1 IT
- Sonam Lhamo- 3 IT
With a speech titled “Still standing,” Yoezer enacted Ramona J Smith, who is a high school teacher from Houston, Texas, won the Toastmasters World Championship of Public Speaking. Smith is only the fifth woman to capture the World Champion of Public Speaking title since the contest began in 1938.
We now had another Toastmasters World Championship speaker, Danajaya Hettriachchi. His motivational speech was presented to the crowd by Salim Pradhan who made it clear that everyone of us have something special in us and that we need to help ourselves to find it out.
Then Ms. Sonam Lhamo took up the challenge to present us the world’s most fascinating character, Charlie Chaplin. She delivers his speech, the call for peace which is presented at the end the movie "the great dictator."
Students of CST thus enjoyed 2 long hours meeting with personalities from all around the world.
