Students from America's top universities like Yale, Harvard, Princeton and Columbia will debate on the theme of "Higher education is not worth it" -- in Hindi!
The fourth edition of the Yale Hindi Debate that has grown into a national event since its start in 2008 will have two rounds; a preliminary on March 30 and the final round on the Yale University campus on 6th April.
The annual Yale Hindi Debate was conceptualised and founded by Nikhil Sud, a graduate of St. Columba's School in New Delhi and a graduate of Yale College, who is now studying at the Yale Law School.
He was encouraged and guided by Seema Khurana, senior lector for Hindi and South Asian Studies at Yale University. The Yale Hindi Debate has truly emerged as one of the most significant efforts of the Yale India Initiative and the growth of South Asian studies in the US.
