(4/5) "From his speeches at Sunnydale Debate Club practices, we had a hunch that Debojyoti was going to be special for the club. The fair amount of success in his early days cemented that hunch even further. But unlike us, he had his eyes set on the biggest prize from the very first day.
His presence in the WSDC team as the youngest member this year speaks volumes of his debating skills than my words can attempt to. Debo’s friends and acquaintances often remarks “Debo is just born with talent” because of his excellent track record in academics and host of ECAs that he participates, further facilitated by his modest attitude. Yet, in the case of debate, it has been way more than that.
As his teammate in school debates and as a friend, I’ve had the luck to witness his unparalleled work ethic. Burdened with the load of academics and coaching everyday till late in the evening, he has never compromised on his work on improving his debate game. Instead of others who would doze off after a long day of studies, Debo keeps his eyes glued to the countless articles and debate videos on his phone. Be it the latest UADC, WUDC or ABP video, he watches them as soon as they are streamed online. We would often find him prepping for an impromptu motion in local tourneys. Why? Because he religiously maintains his weird habit of preparing debate cases at home for fun. While it’s possible for hard work to beat talent when talent does not hard work, Debo proves that the mixture of talent and hard work is impossible to beat.
While there are many seniors that I look up to as a debater for inspiration , Debojyoti has a special place because I have seen his determination and hunger for the sport up close. I’m certain that he’s going to bring glory for the country in this edition of WSDC and it will only be the first of many." (excerpt authored by Turza Saha)
