The Graduation Ceremony of Shree Chanakya Education Society’s Indira College of Commerce and Science was held on 2nd May, 2016 at Pharmacy Auditorium, Wakad, Pune. The Chief Guest for the ceremony was Mr. Siddharth Shirole. The function was marked by the presence of Dr. Tarita Shankar, Chairperson IGI, Prof. Chetan Wakalkar, Group Director IGI, Dr. Anjali Kalkar, Principal in-Charge, Dr. Janardan Pawar, Vice-Principal, Directors of the institutes.


The celebration of Pi day was started 9 years ago and this year too, the celebration was a triumph and a remarkable one with the count crossing 1700 participants, way ahead when it was started years ago with only a handful of 30 students.

Earlier it used to be an inter-class competition and now it has advanced to an inter college level competition. This year Indira is very fortunate to have the participants from 12 colleges and schools in and around Pune. From each college, top three scoring students were awarded with winning trophies respectively and every student got participation certificate. The most highlighting part of the event was the feedback from the colleges. They requested to continue the competition and also to include high school students and junior college level also.

We have received feedback from various colleges that due to these competitions students are getting more interest in mathematics.

Overall it was a very good experience and we are looking forward to host it for years to come. Many colleges in Pune, Pimpri Chinchwad and Ahmednagar city are requested to conduct same competition for their interested students.

Debate Competition

9th State Level Late Shri Shankarrao Wakalkar Debating Competition

6th  January 2016

       “A Good debate is aimed at the thoughtful conclusion acceptable to all not just winning the verbal dual.”

Debate, as considered as a verbal dual is actually a method of interactive and representational argument. Debate is a broader form of argument than battle of words. Students are full of ideas and arguments. They need a platform to channelize their energy and enthusiasm. An eyesight to locate the problem, a skill to interpret it and finally express it in front of the person who has opposite point is the way of debate. It examines whether a conclusion is a consequence of thoughts, factual argument, rhetoric, which is a technique of persuasion. Though logical consistency, factual accuracy and some degree of emotional appeal to the audience are important elements of the art of debating, one side often prevails over the other side by presenting a superior “context” and/or framework of the issue, which is far more subtle and strategic. The outcome of a debate depends upon consensus or some formal way of reaching a resolution, rather than the objective facts as such. In a formal debating contest, there are rules for participants to discuss and decide on differences, within a framework defining how they will interact.

Debate improves with knowledge and skills of its participants as debaters. The outcome of a contest may be decided by the quality of argument by judges which in combination of the two.

The Competition was held on 6th   January   2016 at Pharmacy Auditorium.
