The Literary and Debating Society (LDS) is the oldest student society of GIK, with an enviable name and rich tradition in the south Asian Literary circuit.

The LDS is one of the most prestigious student organizations of GIK, and it was formed soon after the inception of the institute. Since then it has grown significantly in terms of prestige and repute, and currently, it is the only society in GIK to have hosted and participated in international events.
Its main objective is to cater to the wide literary and debating taste of the populous at GIK. Its pool of events include Parliamentary (extempore) debating competitions, Open discussion forums (Showdown), literary evenings (Elocution), poetry recitals, literary publications, mushaira and more.

The society has successfully hosted 15 national and 4 international events to date, with active participation of the most prestigious institutes from all over the country as well as the rest of South Asia. Thus, LDS holds the honor of organizing the most number of international events at GIKI.

A family away from home, LDS has truly been the most inspiring and motivating group of people that I have ever been a part of. Juniors that will be respectful, peers that are friends forever and seniors that will always be the best mentors are some of the unbreakable ties that you will make at LDS.
Batch 18
"In the midst of all the fun at lds, we unknowingly became masters at managing teams effectively, handling pressure scenarios, adopting to budget constraints, and what not - today we do these at work daily. But most of all for me, LDS made me realize the true value of friendships. And from there on, debating became an added plus rather than the reason for my love of the society."
Printshop Head Batch 15
"LDS was the integral part of life at GIKI. The environment that the society provided still resonates in my personality and years later still helps me stand out professionally. LDS provided me the unforgettable times, memorable external tours and insane fun (yes, we get crazy from time to time). Somewhere in 2006, a freshman was exposed to Psudo Intellectual people, only to realize they are mostly restarted. Best times."
Sybtain Badami
Coordinator Batch 10
"LDS defined my stay at GIKI. Whether it was organizing All Paks at home (yes, we weren't truly international then!) or representing GIKI at externals (still remember the incredible experiences of lifting GCU and UET trophies for the first time!), I cherish every moment I spent with this family away from home (...and now I miss the good old days!)"

"LDS gave me opportunities that I would not have gotten otherwise. Of the four years I spent in GIK, my fondest memories are the ones I made with friends in LDS. Even now, the friends I am in touch with are the ones I worked and had fun with in LDS. For me, GIK was LDS.."
