All geared up to fire up the contests, the participants were buzzing to deliver their speeches and yes, it does take lot of courage to muster and climb that stage to face the audience ! But the latter was more than complacent as we are Plateau and we support each other at all times.. From the defying logic of what came first of the chicken and the egg by TM Vyankoj to Being the a champion in Life without the need to scratch & smell by TM Ishrat and where TM Azra beautifully transitioned with a Climate Change Alert that we should all be aware of ! TM Sorjen who gave away the resolution of writing a book for next year, is not ready to QUIT ! And the winner of the Speech segment, TM Krishn explained how a bad habit can change someone's life forever with that needle pricking his ……. At such a young age !
The Table Topics Participants !
Why vote for you as the next councilor for Moka district ? That was the table topics question of the day and 5 contestants (DTM Faizal, TM Krishn, TM Subhiraj, TM Roshan Chundunsing and TM Milind)were in the shoes of our recent politicians rooting for the vote from the audience ! It was finally TM Roshan Chundunsing who, with sheer conviction, wowed his audience and the judges with an impromptu exposé of why voting for him would change our lives !!
The Evaluation Participants !
The test speaker Yusrah had a lean and fit approach to fitness and health and 5 evaluators had to drill down on her speech to enable her to bring it to the next level ! TM Roshan Seebaluck, TM Azra, TM Ishrat, DTM Faizal and (TM Jyotee who was the winner in this segment) all recommended her to use less of her notes and make more use of her eye contacts as the contents of her speech was very well structured with statistics and made us realise that more than 300,000 people in Mauritius are affected with diabetes.
