  1. Awesome opening with good use of body language. I see you’ve maintained good eye contact, good use of hand gestures preferably when you say ‘that was the first time I wanted become a ugly goonda’.

    You picked few examples from your personal life / experience and narrated the incidents very well with simple words which helped us to visualize it.

    I think there was no need to say I’m in humorous speech contest and giving you the serious advice.

    Transition from speech body to conclusion was kind of abrupt.

    Conclusion has a good message to the audience and loved the way you justified ‘Be a Buffalo’.







    Voice modulation is good preferably when he raises his voice against you to hold his bag and uniform. You've sprinkled laughter through out the speech. The way you explained meeting old classmates after 2 decades was simply superb.

    Try to avoid the words like guy / guys and colloquial words like goonda, gabbar singh, etc. Even if you use it, use it wisely based on the target audience as some of them may not be familiar with those words.
