The L. N. Birla Memorial Invitational Debate is a flagship event of Birla High School and has gained immense popularity over the years. It is the fulfilment of our late founder’s vision of a complete education for our pupils - one that would combine service with excellence and create independent and free-thinking individuals, who can confidently lead the country to new frontiers of knowledge and progress.

The chief guest for the occasion was Consul General Manfred Auster, Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany.
