Group Discussion

after 3 weeks of the test we have called for the GD

I got the topic “INFLUENCE OF WESTERN CULTURE ON INDIA” The importand point in the GD that u should

raise one or two valid points and that should be in a clear voice. Do not get over excited and do not forget basic

decency. U r been watched by the moderator. Before GD moderator asked us to suggest some topics. I said “should coca cola ban in india” Some supported me. Also topics like “importance of GD”" Precident Kalam's View abt india

in 2020 where suggested. But finally moderator asked the above topic INFLUENCE OF WESTERN CULTURE ON

INDIA. I didn't ge the chance to start. But i can raise 2 valid points as well as i got the chance to conclude. If u r able

to start it is very good. But don't simply say good morning and we got the topic so and so, u should say some serious

points. But even If u r not able to start, u should talk apoint or 2. If moderator asked u to conclude it is also a great


Some other topics on that day where child labour, War on iraq is justified or not, exagerations in resume, reverse

brain drain etc. GD will be of 10 minits time and it will end very fast So dont wait for ur “turn” Attack! but with

minimum decency thats the key
