dayajasmine

Pro

india is a very rich and good country
innomen

Con

I will contend that India, although a fine country in its own right, is not better than any other country.

By better we will mean that it is a better place to live for the most number of people, and will be using conventional measurements of what constitutes a "better" country in which a person would live.

Any other country meaning every other country, and the BOP will be on my opponent to prove that it is better than every other country for a populace to live.
Debate Round No. 1
dayajasmine

Pro

dayajasmine forfeited this round.
innomen

Con

Although I will not contend that India is the worst place to live it certainly isn't the best. It has considerable corruption that it must deal with when compared to other democratic nations.[1] As standard of living it ranks 122. [2] India also ranks fairly high in poverty where 77% of the population live on less than .50 a day. [3] In the area of infant mortality India ranks 152. [4] The literacy rate ranks pretty terribly too at 105, and seems to be slipping. [5]

I could continue to look up the stats, but they are pretty much as anyone would expect of an over crowded third world country.

My opponent who challenged me on this debate abandoned her challenge, and did not spend a moment in supporting her resolution. The resolution does not stand, and it is quite clear that India is not better than any other country.

The conduct point goes to Innomen because Pro forfeited. The arguments go to Imabench because he proved through statistics and facts that India is not the best place in the world in the universe to live. Pro did not meet her Burden of Proof or done anything to prove that India is indeed the best place to live in the world. Pro's claims were unwarranted, while Imabench's arguments had facts and statistics to back them up. Spelling and grammar go to Imabench because Pro did not capitalize the first letter of each sentence or proper nouns or use correct punctuation. Pro also spelled better as "beeter" and I would suggest Pro to take some online grammar lessons before he/she starts more debates. Imabench gets sources because Pro had no sources and Imabench had 5 sources. Overall, very close debate, Imabench won by a hair. This was an interesting debate. Thank you very much for listening to my extra long RFD that I did because I was bored and because I can.

That's not 'obviously' false. It depends on your definition of richness. We aren't talking about equity.

India is a rich county? what?! Even though that's obviously false, innomen totally crushed her side.

I know. Though I'm pretty patriotic and all that, even I can't follow this one through. I'll have to depend on semantics.

She challenged me, i have no idea who she is. There's only two rounds, and one hour between them, so i can knock this out easily enough. Poorly done resolution.

Awww... Too many subjective terms in the debate. Could be a good debate, but the area to be covered is quite large. Still, will keep a tab on this.
