THE CHIDAMBARAM Pillai College for Women in Tiruchi was the venue for an inter-collegiate debate organised by the Tiruchi branch of the Automobile Association of Southern India (AASI) in commemoration of its centenary celebrations.
Based on the theme for the year `Road safety and no accident', 24 students from ten colleges participated in the debate and spoke on whether `Strict laws or change of heart is necessary for reducing road accidents'.
Moderating the debate, the Secretary of the AASI, Tiruchi Branch, K. Subramanian, stressed that both factors were necessary and that students, as future citizens, ought to observe traffic rules and be considerate towards other road users.
The first three prize-winners were S. Vignesh of the Srimad Andavan Arts and Science College, C Mahesh of the Bishop Heber College, and R. Chellappan of the National College, a visually disabled student.
The host college Principal, N. Vijayasundari, and Hon. Educational Advisor, K. Sekar, emphasised on strict observance of road rules and road safety.
