Orating unlike all the other arts, is not just a quality to impress, or to prove but to influence. When we step on stage, with the head held high, to influence the world and to express our emotions, speech is left as a very scant action. ABHIVYAKTI, as the name suggest, to express or to enunciate. Here at DME we work to disseminate infallible dialogues, with strong and verified quotes, articles and pretense. We consider in rousing the speaker, not just with considerable old school thoughts and actions but rather make you work on the modus of newfangled pondering, enhancing your spirit to the most.
The glimpse of your lifestyle, shines out in your speech. There are chances where your dressing style and other actions, are just adorable, but the moment you open your mouth, your speech turns everything down. Just not debates, here in ABHIVYAKTI we also try to reveal the hidden writer in you. Writing techniques, with great orating skills becomes your cherry on the cake.
Both your writing and orating skills, enhance while reading. And it’s very old school saying that reading makes you disciplined. The foremost agenda of the society that works on you being, responsible, disciplined, punctual and decisive. We even try to make the freshers familiar with their seniors, conducting sessions and society meetings. So, here you come to the most exciting and knowledgeable society of the college, you are welcome.

Oral communication fulfills a number of general and discipline-specific academic functions. Students need to speak well in their personal lives, future workplaces and social interactions. Extempore is one such method which assists the students not only in thinking on their own but also in voicing their creative ideas with precision. Extempore is the art of public speaking that is carried out without preparation or forethought. It puts to test one’s ability to think on the spot and also their spontaneity.
To imbibe a true spirit of learning in DMEians and to enhance the communication skills in them, an Intra College Extempore Competition, was organised in Delhi Metropolitan Education College by, ABHIVYAKTI the literary and debating society of the college, The webinar was conducted under the leadership of our cultural head, Ms Navjot Suri, the Faculty Conveners of Literary and Debating Society, Mrs. Raveena S Bhargava and Ms. Sanchita Chakroborty, also the presence of Mrs. Srishty Tawakley, marked to be of great influence.

Basically in an extempore competition the participants are asked to pick up a chit and to follow up with the topic given there, but since this was a virtual competition, hence the topics were impartially allotted by the student Conveners Of the society, Mr. Udit Kumar and Raj Singh.

SEE THEIR SIDE OF AN ARGUMENT… BEFORE EXPECTING THEM TO SEE YOURS
ALWAYS FIND A REASON TO LAUGH, IT MAY NOT ADD YEARS TO YOUR LIFE BUT WILL SURELY ADD LIFE TO YOUR YEARS
– M. DRAKE
Laughter is the best medicine, and surely will be forever. Not just a wide statement remarked without any sensible investigation but it is proved that laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. With this view in mind and create a positive environment for the students, The Cultural And Debate Society, ABHIVYAKTI of our College Delhi Metropolitan Education, conducted a live stand-up comedy and story telling competition, under the guidance of our FACULTY and SOCIETY CONVENOR, Dr. Swati Jain and Mohit Sir, with the hard work of our STUDENT CONVENER, Udit kumar and CO- CONVENOR, Raj Singh and all the other members of team ABHIVYAKTI.
With this growing world, stand up comedy in India has already reached to a new fag-end and created newfangled humour for the audience. For many of the student audience members, it was the first time they’ve seen comedy in person. The program started, with an interesting story by our student convener, Udit kumar and was followed by a number of stand-ups that really made people feel butterflies in the stomach. The program went ahead where new participants came and showed their unbelievable talent standing on the stage, performing great jokes and making people laugh. Add the very end our student co-convener, Raj Singh remarked his presence over the stage and performed one of the greatest stand ups of the day. The most interesting part for the program was that, in this world where comedy and jokes have been limited to vagueness and vulgarity, our performers did decent jokes with the next level humour. Even the audience, cheered the performers with all the energy that really made the show one of the greatest in the history of DME.
At the end, our SOCIETY CONVENER, Dr Swati Jain came on the stage and thanked everyone for their presence and congratulated the performers for making the evening so great. At last the certificates for the participation was distributed among the performers and a group photograph was clicked to save that beautiful moment forever.
