Indirapuram Public school for Girls organized a two day national debate “Behes” in which more than 250 students from different schools participated. Behes is a non-profit organization working to promote debate, public speaking and reasoned expression in schools and colleges throughout India and beyond.
At the two days of the Patna Round students explored various topics from Music, Philosophy, Liberal Arts, and science.
In the junior division a team from Radiant International won the trophy, while in the senior division a mixed team from Loyala and DAV took the shiny trophy home.
72 students from this Patna round qualified for the National’s finals of Behes termed as “MahaBehes” which is about to be held in Dwarka, Delhi this 26th and 27th December.

“Patna is a very important part of our community, and the oldest round outside Delhi NCR, every time we go to Patna we receive more love than we deserve.”
He further added,
“We hope to include all of the schools and most of the people of Patna in our mission in years to come.”
