The Pandits and Sadhus of every religion used to hold discussions and debates in the King’s courts to prove the facts of their religions. The one who used to loose used to get punishment and had to leave the kingdom. To maintain the prestige of their religion one had to be an expert in debating. It is mentioed in Kalpasutra that 600 disciples of Lord Mahavira were expert debaters. The acharyas expert in debating had received a position in top 8 effective people. Examples are Mallavadi Surishvarji, Vadidevsuri etc. In a debate different strategies and ideas have to be used. The Acharya bhagwants have created few granths which include the counter strategies to be used durig a debate. These debates remain unpublished as a single Prat has 22-25 debates and only a single debate is known. The index of these granths have no information about such petagranth. 42 years ago a scholar named Shri Naginbhai Shah had published books based on 10 debate topics on behalf of Sanskrutik Vidyamandir. The 2nd part of it is being published after 42 years under the supervision of Upadhyaya shri Bhuvanchandra maharajsaheb of Paychand Gachcha.
