Last night was the annual Yale Hindi Debate, bringing together participants from near and far to debate this year’s motion, “Our Generation is Too Coddled.” The event took place in Luce Hall, and we were able to capture and share with you some of the scenes from the event, described as follows on the YHD website:
Born as a student’s idea in a Yale classroom, the Yale Hindi Debate has grown exponentially, from an ambitious venture to an intellectual, cultural, and social institution. The debate was established as a Yale-only event in 2008, and now sees participation from faculty and students from USA’s preeminent schools, including Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Columbia, the University of Pennsylvania, NYU, Cornell, UCLA, Wesleyan, Rutgers, the University of Texas at Austin, and Wellesley College.
