Arya Veer Dal Atlanta shines in elocution competition

The Greater Atlanta Vedic Temple conducted its Annual Elocution Competition on March 22, 2015 to mark the Arya Samaj Foundation Day. The competition was open to youngsters ages 6 to 18 (Arya Veer Dal), and it was very encouraging for the organizers to actually have all ages represented including participation from a 6 year old as well as an 18 year old.

The participants were given the following four topics to choose from and present their research and views in a compelling manner: 1. God, one or many, 2. Agnihotra – source of pollution or its remedy, 3.What it means to be an Arya, 4. Usefulness of Arya Samaj to overcome challenges of the Western Worldworld.

Participants approached their respective prompts topics in a variety of ways, from presenting original viewpoints and using examples from experience to conducting deep research to prepare content to justify their stance. Two winners in each of the two categories, Junior (6 – 11 10 years) and Senior (over 11 – 18 years old) were selected. The winners in the Junior category were Vedarsh Mishra (first place) and Aditya Arora (second place). In the Senior category, first place was tied between Rohan Bagga and Havishkrit Arya, and Sudeep Giri placed second.
