Historical topics: Keeping a fair knowledge of history of India can help. When you have historical knowledge and provide correct data, you can create a good impression in front of the admission panel.

Sports, arts and literature: When you keep yourself updated about the latest happenings in these three areas, you can take control of the situation, if topics related to these areas are given. Otherwise, you can use the details you have collected for gathering references.

As the final word, nothing can make the admission panel happy, other than the efforts you make to summarize the points that you put forth during GD. This will showcase how you structure your thoughts and your analytical skills as well.
