Indian Muslim Welfare Association (IMWA) conducted the EDUMEET 2017 at Salmiya Indian Model School on 12th May 2017. EDUMEET is an annual event held by the association wherein Indian students are given an opportunity to demonstrate their talents. The program was hosted by Ms. Israa Naeemuddin and Ms. Afra Mohammed Khalid. The event comprised of an essay writing competition and an inter-school debate competition.

 

The event started by the recitation of the Holy Quran by Ms. Saima Bandarkar, followed with the English translation by Ms. Asma Manshauddin. After that, the essay writing competition commenced. The participants were divided into three groups based on their classes - Group A (Class VII – VIII), Group B (Class IX – X) and Group C (Class XI – XII). Each group was given a different topic with a time limit of 30 minutes and a word limit of 250 words. A panel of four eminent judges from various Indian schools in Kuwait were given the tough task of evaluating the essays and selecting the winners from each group as the debate was going on.

 

Ms. Alison Larkin Koushki conducted an interactive presentation with the audience, based on her project REALL, “Read English Actively for Language and Life Skills”. In her technique, students use the arts - drawing, painting, music, drama, and choreography -to celebrate literature.

 

This was followed by the debate competition. The 12 participating schools, one of which included IMWA’s own Talent team, sent in two competent contestants each. The topic of the debate was “Have we exchanged our traditional values for a pair of jeans?” Each team had one contestant to argue for the motion, and the other to argue against. A panel of four distinguished adjudicators evaluated the participants’ performance simultaneously. The panel consisted of - Mrs. Moli Divakaran, Lecturer at Box Hill College of Kuwait; Dr. Sabiha Bilgrami from Kuwait University, also the president of Kuwait Leaders Toastmasters Club; Ms. Alison Larkin Koushki, who taught in the American University of Kuwait Intensive English Program for 7 years, and finally Ms. Rana Khan who is currently the English Language Instructor at College of Education, Kuwait University. The evaluation was processed online as the data entered by the judges was transmitted live to the moderator, Mohammad Zahid.

 

The debate was fiercely contested by all the participants giving sharp arguments for their perspective of the topic. Young orators used their presentation skills, body language and stage presence as the audience cheered on. After each participant concluded their speech, the judges put across a question to them based on their stance and what they had spoken. The participants were up to the challenge, citing examples and using their presence of mind in answering the tough and tricky questions put across by the judges.

 

The audience, consisting of the contestants’ families and teachers, were kept involved by the MCs during the breaks. They were asked random questions and those who gave correct answers were given gift hampers.

 

Mr. Sanjeev Saklani – Attache of Education at the Indian Embassy, also graced the occasion as the Chief Guest.  He expressed his appreciation of IMWA’s efforts to host such events for the benefit of the children from the Indian Community in Kuwait.

 

IMWA’s President, Mr. Jawaid Anwar, mentioned in his speech that the debate competition is very useful for preparing students for their future careers and thanked the IMWA Executive Council Members for their efforts in putting together such events.

 

The debate and essay writing judges were given mementos by IMWA’s president, the Chief Guest, and IMWA’s General Secretary. Special gifts were given to the MCs and moderator for their contribution to the success of the event.

 

The results of both the essay writing and debate competition were declared immediately after the event and certificates and prizes were distributed to the winners by the chief guest Mr. Sanjeev Saklani and IMWA Executive Council members.

Continuing its tradition, IMWA organised Quran Competition on 28 October, 2016 for boys and girls, up-to Class XII and their parents at Al Najaat Boys School, Salmiya, followed by Awards Conferral ceremony on November 25, 2016. The participants were tested for their skills in Quranic recitation, elocution, knowledge based quiz on Islamic history and religious matters and calligraphy.

The award conferral started with the recitation of the Holy Quran by Umar Ashraf, excellence award winner in Group B followed by English translation by Asma Manshauddin. Verses 285 - 286 were chosen to begin the program in the light of the fact that great merits have been attributed to these two verses in authentic Hadith. The holy Prophet PBUH has said that one who recites these two verses during the night, they will be sufficient for them.


In Western classical rhetoric, elocution is one of the five core disciplines of pronunciation, which is the art of delivering speeches. Orators are trained not only on proper diction, but on the proper use of gestures, stance, and dress. The following participants who were the winners of Elocution contest addressed the audience in the award conferral ceremony delivering their award winning speeches.

  1. Maryam Jawaid, Class X, Fahaheel Al Watanieh Private School
  2. Safiya Ishaq, Class VIII, Fahaheel Al Watanieh Private School
  3. Abdur Rahman Ansari, Class V, Indian Learners Own Academy
  4. Mohammad Yusuf Khan, Class IV, Indian Learners Own Academy

The Elocution was based on the following topics:

Group B – Rights of Neighbours in Islam
Group C – The blessings of Imaan
Group D – Islam is Peace
Group E – Prophet Muhammad pbuh in other religious scriptures

Keeping in with the importance of Holy Quran for Muslims in particular and mankind in general. IMWA for the last several years had been educating our brothers, sisters and children alike, through this Quiz Contest - of the right path in worshipping Allah, leading a good life, living in harmony and mutual respect with other religions and cultures. Muslims learn from Quran, morals of life. Quran is a guide and command for rituals including prayers, fasting, pilgrimage, rules of marriage, divorce, inheritance, finance, partnerships, you name it and the subject is covered in Quran.


Indeed, our heart swells to say that there were over 450 registrations of participants of which 104 participants were declared as winners based on their performance. From the last year, we have included, quiz based on Islamic history and deen itself for parents too……..allhamdullilah….we have received a tremendous response from them too. Around 50 parents participated in high scoring quiz game.


Besides, the merit positions, special prizes were given to the wards of IMWA members under the category of IMWA Talent and an award of excellence to repeat winners of last year. IMWA took an unusual decision of awarding two prizes for two tie second positions in parent’s category. This was done in view of the high scores secured by winning parents.

We could successfully do the programme because of dedicated efforts of Dr. Naeemuddin, who booked the venue and ensured that it is available to us. Tanwir Alam along with his daughter, Maliha Tanwir played a pivotal role in facilitating the smooth distribution of prizes. The other EC members, under the stewardship of President Jawaid Anwar, Muzammil Malik, Iftekhar Ahmed, Mohammed Manshauddin, Israr Ahmad, Khalid Damodar, AW Rumani, Syed Hanif, Rashid Mir, Mir Abrar, Shafaq Mumtaz, Nadeem Tirmizi and Convener Irfan Mohammad Khan assisted by Sumaiyya Parveen, Asma Manshauddin, Israa Naemuddin and Maryam Jawaid played their role by being a part of the total environment.

We continue to seek Allah’s blessings that more and more of us benefit from this programme with each passing year and we remain steadfast in our efforts.
