VoW College Debates

VoW College Debates


VoW partners with the Mantrana Debating Society of the DAV college Dehradun to organize bilingual (Hindi and English) a national debate for college and university.


Poetry Rendevouz @ VoW


The urge to write has come often,
To spread the joy and to lament,
but I did not pick up my pen
for there was no encouragement!

Valley of Words (VoW) is delighted to encourage and recognize the latent muse in all of us. The Poetry Rendezvous is for authors and poets (and anyone with verses bubbling in their hearts) who love to write but feel a sense of inhibition and haven’t been published yet. It’s time to check old leaves, retrieve the ‘notes’ on your pads, or just sit down for a coffee and put down your thoughts.
