About

The Literary and Debating Society happens to be the oldest and one of the most prestigious societies of our institute. The Society traces its roots back to 1968 and has its trunk strongly withheld in 2019. The green leaves have been making a difference to the extra-curricular ambiance of the Institute by providing the required oxygen ever since its establishment.


The Society presents to its audience a plethora of literary gigs served on a silver platter to choose from. Events ranging from Parliamentary Debates, Just-A-Minute, Crosswords, Riddles, Shipwreck, Jumble the Good Word, etc are a perfect conglomerate of fun and learning. The literary enthusiasts give each other a tough fight and the war of words and wits that follows is such a spectacle. LDS has this trade of spicing things up. If you think debates and creative writings are nerd games, you just haven’t experienced an LDS rendition of these activities.


The Society has witnessed a cluster of zealous and enthusiastic individuals who had shaped the club with their witty notions and literary flex. The Society continues to be a place where you can read, write, share, converse, ponder and most importantly, enjoy!

These are the following events that we do year-long.
