Success Stories

  It is better to debate a question without settling it than to settle a question without debating it. For Not For provides a platform which truly embodies this statement. The format of the competition leaves no stone unturned in exploring one's capabilities. Healthy debating is the answer to most of the problems in the free world and For Not For recognises that.
