My GD topic is "What Should India do to win a gold medal in the Olympics?".

My Batch consists of 11 members.

4 to 5 of them are shouting, right from beginning.

They never gave the chance to others.

The persons who are shouted during the GD are asked to present a Stage performance by the GD judges.
