Speeches are probably the most effective way to convince the masses.

Speaking is one of the most important skills. It helps us communicate and express ourselves. Speeches help in motivating and inspiring people. Speeches have played an important role throughout history in bringing about changes.

Martin Luther King gave “I have a dream speech” which inspired a nation and broke down racial barriers. Without his leadership and his inspirational speech, it may have taken another decade to bring equality to all races. Presidents Nixon’s speech united a nation and put a man on the moon. Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg address put him on the map for president. Without this speech, he may never have been the icon he is today. Hilter delivered his speeches with extreme passion and caused arguably one of the most horrific genocides of all time.

Our school(Ekya J P Nagar), hosted a declamation competition in which the students of Ekya re-delivered one of the most inspirational speeches of all times. The amount of passion with which the speeches were delivered was truly inspiring. The hard work of the participants showed in their performance. It proved to be very difficult for the judges to choose the winners.

Jahnavi Rajesh of Grade X won the first place followed by Nihal Sanjiv Pujar of Grade VIII, Dwijesh Natoor Bhaskar of Grade IX and  Prasidh Pradeep of Grade X.  These winners seemed to have truly earned their positions.
