J.A.M Competition 2021

“Speech is Power: Speech is to Persuade, to Convert, to Compel.”


Speaking Skills are one of the most crucial forms of versatilities that make an individual stand out of the crowd by expressing the best of thoughts and notions. They add to the credibility of the individual in every aspect of life. Hence, it is implausible to deny the significance of the speaking skills to ensure that every budding orator gets meticulous with those skills through a platform that provides her/him with the opportunity to express.

The School of Engineering and technology, along with the Cultural Society of K.R. Mangalam University, endeavored to take a step forth to organize an interactive J.A.M. competition to bridge the communication gap in this pandemic by executing the event on a virtual platform.

The J.A.M. (Just A Minute) session, namely "Chakka J.A.M," was organized to have a peek at the oratory skills of the Students on 29 April 2021. The participants were the students of the University, who enthusiastically participated for the same and brought out the best of their narration skills on the designated topics.


The event commenced with a welcome speech by. Chandni Vij (B.A. psychology Honors, 2nd semester) warmly welcomed all the virtual attendees and gave the event a delightful start. The program further proceeded with introducing the rules and regulations of the session by Daksh Mehta (B.Tech Computer science, 4th year).


There were two rounds- opinion round where students were given a topic and were given 1 minute preparation time and then was asked to speak to it, the second round was the "what if" round where the participant was given a hypothetical situation and was asked to speak on it. Both the rounds were held in two categories Hindi and English, to avoid the language barrier. After all the participants were done with their performance, Miss Sara Khan (Professor, S.O.E.T.), who was the competition's judge, announced the result. Prakhar Shrivastava(B.J.M.C.) secured the 1st

Khushi (B.A. psychology Hons) and Ishika (Bba) secure 2nd and 3rd place. Following the results, a vote of thanks was delivered by Mrs. Asha Sohal(Professor, S.O.E.T.). Heartfelt gratitude was presented to the activity coordinator, participants, anchors, and other session attendees. The program thus concluded gracefully with the benign presence of everyone. The support of the Organizing Committee, Cultural Society, and the other members of the clubs was very helpful. The teachers and the students relished the entire event and wished to participate and enjoy other such insightful events in the coming future.
