SECURING SUCCESS 

Tanisha Jain and Akanksha Gupta

Day three of SMUN’16 proved to be an active and enthralling end to the three days of hectic debates and discussions in the Security Council.

The committee discussed resolutions on two separate agendas.

The first was regarding the crisis in Burundi. The resolution, though trying to help was very vaguely personified. The moderator of the Security Council took on the role of the delegate of Burundi and elocuted an impactful speech about how, ‘Burundi is perfectly fine and does not need help.’ The resolution, due to its ambiguity in stating the actions that the United Nations would take to help Burundi, failed. The author of the resolution, however, was recognized for his efforts.

The delegate of Argentina authored the second resolution. The delegate pronouncing his country as “Urgentina” presented his “urgent” resolution regarding the introduction of reforms to the Security Council. The clauses were discussed and amended to make the resolution as conclusive and loophole free as possible. Most of the clauses passed unanimously. The resolution being well worded and irrefutable in nature, passed.

The level of debate did not only make the Chairs feel like proud parents but also left the delegates with a sense of confidence for the next time.

MOSAIC OF DIFFERENT VIEWS

Shaivi Srivastava and Muneera Shabeer

The third day of SMUN’16 had already promised an eventful day from the very beginning. The much awaited plenary had finally commenced, which marked the fusion of all the committees of the General Assembly. Exhilaration filled the air as the committees eagerly anticipated the passing or failing of their respective resolutions.

The first to put forward their “Resolution 3.1,” was the DISEC delegate of India. The delegate put forward his reasons and justification of the various clauses as he desperately seeked the votes of his fellow delegates. The committee was very constructive in making several amendments, but unfortunately failed to get the support of the majority.

The peaceful atmosphere of the committee was disrupted when inappropriate chits were being passed between delegates, but with the help of the resourceful Executive Board the committee resumed it’s normal functioning right away.

All in all watching the delegates working as a team was truly extraordinary. It showcased a wide spectrum of opinions, coming together to find solutions to the different agendas at hand.

To Each His Own

Farishta Anjirbag

The day of Plenary brought with it a merger of all the three committees of the General Assembly. SOCHUM and DISEC, after a brief lobbying period, were joined by the SPECPOL committee, and the commencement of Plenary, with DISEC’s delegate of India reading out his resolution for cyber safety, ensued. A SOCHUM delegate of France, in his attempt to express the futility of an amendment to India’s resolution, used the phrase, “It’s like asking ISIS to stop murdering” –a line that was most definitely heard on the second day of committee, coming from the mouth of SOCHUM’s Deputy President. France’s statement was then countered by DISEC’s delegate of USA, who didn’t hold back in calling anyone who didn’t understand the importance of the amendment (our very innovative delegate of France), “futile in their thoughts”.  Moreover, the Secretary General lost his cool completely, and resorted to yelling into the mic when the delegates refused to comply with his orders to return to their seats after a short break. The day of Plenary proved to be quite interesting, with active participation and involvement from the few countries who were paying attention. For the others, sleeping at their desks whilst important issues involving concepts such as the Deep Web, and cyber terrorism were being debated before them, was another good way to spend their day. 

THE FINALE

Eeshta Bhatt

The plenary as a whole was a mass of delegates from the committee of SOCHUM, SPECPOL and DISEC. The lobbying session begun with the DISEC delegate of India discussing his resolution. Although posed with a series of baffling questions, the delegate of India stood his ground and defended his resolution. The resolution was met with copious debate and was subjected to numerous amendments, as it took it place in the spotlight. The delegates of Pakistan, France and Estonia raised valid points to contradict the resolution. It came as no surprise that there was drama in committee. The SOCHUM delegate of Kuwait was tangled in controversy due to scandalous content in chits. At the end, the resolution was scrapped as majority of the plenary decided to vote against it. The delegates had finally shed their indecisiveness and opted to speak up in the very last session of SMUN16.

All good things come to an end, and such was the fate of the SMUN’16. It was an experiencing filled with intellectual conjecture, passionate debate, fierce exchange of words and hilarious chits. It was an experience worth remembering and I’m sure it will be embedded in our hearts forever.

THE FINAL COUNTDOWN 

Lisha Noronha and Aditi Shah

The resolution authored by Spain and China was carried over to the next day, but was tabled due to the plenary.

During the plenary, the delegate of India belonging to the DISEC committee authored the first resolution based on cyber terrorism. After prolonged discussion and critical amendments it was not favoured upon by the majority and “failed.” This unsuccessful resolution was followed by another one based on the Syrian refugees by the delegate of Pakistan, SOCHUM.

A few of the delegates broke concentration from the debates and decided to play online card games and pass inappropriate chits.

The past three days, filled with intellectual discussions, fierce verbal duals and puns gave wonderful opportunities to the delegates to show their skills and to create wonderful memories.

Someone lied, someone died.

Things got interesting when ISIS came into the picture. Updates came pouring in about controversial issues such as Syria aligning with the Islamic state, Syria bombing the house of commons in the UK and statue of liberty being covered in a burqa, along with a ISIS flag. The 3rd day began with a collaboration of both the committees where former allegiances and foreign policies were forgotten, the Assad and Rebel committees forgone and the new cabinets formed – Pro ISIS and Anti-ISIS.

We encountered something never seen before, an alliance between the USA and Russia. They were brought together by their raging sentiments against the ISIS. There was not only increased but also fruitful debate in the committee today. As a punishment for wrongly accusing Abu Bakr, the delegate of the Syrian Resistance was made to write an apology in the form of a sonnet, which consisted of at least 4 lines in Arabic.

Just when we thought that things were slowing down, the Deputy President of JCC-2 became the leader of the ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and spiced things up. For every good argument put up by Abu Bakr, the delegates of the Republic of China and USA put up better ones. With one crisis being solved, another one cropped up. We received information that the delegate of Qatar had secretly been siding with the ISIS and travelled all the way to China and bombed the Chinese Parliament where Chinese President Xi Jinping was killed.


PRESS TEAM

Head of Press – Tisha Virani

Head of Journalism – Malavika Nerurkar

Head of Photography – Shreela Agarwal

As the Plenary came around, the press team were back at it again. Manoeuvring around the three General Assemblies present, taking extreme measures to take pictures. The Journalists had an exciting and challenging time trying to keep up with the chatter and debate spanning across more than their own committee. The Security Council and the joint session of both the JCCs also provided an extremely entrancing platform for the Press Team.


DESIGN TEAM

Head of Design – Raksha Saraf

Deputy Head of Design – Neil Kanakia

Consulting Head of Design – Karan Sankhla

The Design Team has played a major role in handling the creative aspects of the MUN. Every delegate who waved a placard in the air, every member of the OC or EB with an ID card around their neck, every person involved who would tirelessly check the website over and over, must give them a round of applause. They not only covered the aesthetic aspect, but also managed to ensure the effortless functioning of the MUN by organising it in a way that exuded brilliance.


ADMINISTRATION TEAM

Heads of Administration –  Agneya Gopinath, Udyaaksh Khera.

Deputy Heads of Administration: Vikrant Dere, Angarika Balakrishnan, Sumedha Madhivanan, Sanjana Gupta.

The Administration Team are the pillars that hold up the entire Conference. They are the ones that pass the chits, print resolutions, organise the food, and do just about every odd job imaginable, solely for the purpose that the delegates get the best conference

Candy Council
Tanisha Jain
Day 1 for the delegates of the Security Council was rather confusing, as they were still not well acquainted with THIMUN procedure. However, day 2 started on a much better note.
The alert and well -informed delegate of Argentina called out the delegation of the USA in their speech earning the deserved applause as well as candy from the president. The deputy president was impressed by the committee that he ended up throwing candy at the ceiling rather than to the delegate of Brazil. To wrap up the streak of delegates who received candies for raising excellent points of information was the delegate of France. The delegate received not one but three candies and a roaring applause from the council.

Confusion in Committee?
Akanksha Gupta
Even though the delegate of Poland was still unfamiliar with committee procedures, the chairs continued to lend a helping hand explaining procedure. Poland received applause for speaking up despite putting forward an invalid question. Just before break, the committee was failing to function as they were looking forward to the break after an intense session of debate. While voting, it seemed like only one delegate was “for” the amendment but 25 seconds later, 8 delegates raised their placards in support. This led to the chairs asking the delegates to focus for just a while more.

Heads You Win, Tails You Lose
Muneera Shabbeer and Shaivi Srivastava
Without much ado, the committee began its second day with the discussion concerning the resolution. The air was buzzing with excessive excitement and the room was blatantly eager to get through the agenda.
The meagre amount of two votes could lead to the elimination of the United States of America’s resolution entirely, and so the discussion was already getting heated when the chair decided that a little more spice to the dish, wouldn’t pose harm to anyone. To do so, the supposed delegate of Djibouti was introduced, impersonated by our loving President of the General Assembly, followed by the moderator of the JCC-2. Within the span of mere thirty seconds, the moderator picked out three faults in the resolution and would have probably picked out more if it wasn’t for the time lapse.
The day was then followed by the unfortunate scrapping of not only one but two resolutions of the delegates of The United States of America and Syria respectively. A quick recovery was made with the introduction of two new resolutions based on the problems concerning cyber terrorism. Clearly everybody seemed to be on an adrenaline rush during the session which caused a few loses but more importantly many gains.

Ukrainian Delegation Crisis
Farishta Anjirbag
The second day brought with it renewed hope. Lobbying time started off with enthusiasm and some adherence to the rules, on the part of the delegates, as they planned to rush through the remainder of the agenda of the first day, and continue with that of the second, for the better part of the day. The committee jumped into session, dealing with Ukraine’s well thought-out resolution for the Syrian Refugee Crisis, with relatively more participation from the delegates of several countries, but not much from those of the Middle-Eastern ones, ironically enough. The delegates of Ukraine confidently answered any questions posed to them, and showing no signs of uneasiness on account of a disturbing threat they received from certain infuriated delegates of Pakistan, who did not hold back in their chit – promising to declare war on Ukraine, and blow up their land and “posteriors”, should they refuse to retract or amend a clause in their resolution. Ukraine’s resolution took up more than half the session time, leaving less for the actual agenda of the day.

IMG_0219

Positive Turn Around
Eeshta Bhatt
Although it started off a little shaky the second day was definitely a step up from the mundane series of events that took place on the first day. The lobbying time was transient and quickly morphed into Ukraine tabling their former resolution. But the delegation of Syria chose to remain mum and be mere onlookers as the rest engaged in speculative debate. At some point, the chairs threw up their hands in defeat, when the delegate of Ukraine passed on a virus infiltrated drive to them, and made them question whether their delegates bore them ill-feeling. During the latter part of the session however they broke their silence and finally spoke up to support a clause. All in all the delegates took on a more heuristic approach.

UNITY IN DIVERSITY!

The first half of the day was just calm before the storm, well a storm of debate that is. The second half was filled with intellectual decisions, informative points and heated discussions, he issue on everybody’s mind being the resolution submitted by the delegates of Germany and China. Despite this, the detailed resolution was only discussed for a miniscule part of the day. Points of information raised by the moderator on behalf of the delegate of Sweden, received unsynchronized drumming on the table. After extensive debate and rhetorical responses, the resolution was passed. As a celebration, a motion for entertainment was passed, much to the delight of the delegates, press members and members of administration alike.

A COMPLETE TURN AROUND!
Rishima Shetty
By the end of the first day, the Assad committee started living up to its reputation by bombing a city. The delegates were finally being pro-active.
The second day began with an update from the rebels. The previously passive delegates began speaking up. The delegate of Syria was utterly confused about his stance and spoke “for” as well as “against” the same amendment within a span of five minutes. Things mellowed down, but a threat from USA spiced things up. The delegates began to draft a plan of action. While the committee was busy planning, the President of the People’s Republic of China was kidnapped. Enraged by this action, David Cameron switched loyalties to the Assads. This was actually just a deception by the rebels as the delegate of UK had been leaking information to them.
The second day was a definite improvement as the silence was replaced by debates. Two directives were passed by unanimous votes too.

YaminiJcc2,

A Big Boom in the JCC room!
Zara Humranwala
Things were extremely interesting in committee today, the Prince of Saudi Arabia was kidnapped and then forced to commit suicide in a suicide bombing in America. The shocking part was that neither the committee nor his father- King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud took any measures to save him. Instead, they sat debating on how they would kidnap the sister of Bashar Al Assad which was pretty much pointless. To get the committee to understand the gravity of the situation and take effective action, the Deputy President had to sit in committee as the Delegate of Mossad and he gave the others a witty idea to attack territories of the Assad Cabinet using e-bombs to technologically paralyze them.
All of a sudden, things took a huge turn. A man with a black plastic bag over his head entered the room, which made everyone laugh at first but were then shocked when his identity was revealed. The delegate of the Republic of China staged a plan to get himself kidnapped and became one of the most active members of the Rebel Cabinet. We still can’t figure out whose side he is on but it looks like the only solution is to trust him! Agitated by his presence in committee, the Delegate of UK decided to leave this committee and join the Assad Cabinet.
We then received news that due to previous action taken by President Barrack Obama, to use biological weapons to capture Al-Safira, the Congress impeached their President and held elections where Donald Trump was elected as the new President of USA. This is when we’re thankful that this is just “Model” United Nations!
I think we could clearly say that today the Rebel cabinet constantly had pointless discussions about just attacking places but did not take any effective action. Instead they waited for crisis’ to come in from the other cabinet. For all we know, at this point the other cabinet could be bombing areas of our cabinet but the delegates haven’t taken any measures to protect or defend themselves.

A Way With Words
The Assad Cabinet fired a nuke on the United States of America, delegates battled for candy and anonymous threats were made via chits and who better to inform the rest of the conference about these events than the Journalism Team. All the journalists seated in the various committees couldn’t help but listen with rapt attention as debate and discussion picked up on the second day.
They scribbled along their rough pages, in notes that only they could decipher, until they scurried off to finally compile their notes into an impeccably worded article. Joining forces with the Photography Team, they relayed the contents of their articles until they found the picture that fit in with the words they’d written.
IMG_0165

A Myriad of Colour
As the second day of the Scottish Model United commenced, our Photography Team were greeted with a myriad of colour. The dress code for Day 2 happened to be Indian formals and while the usual Western formals tend to become a little monotonous because the multitude were in shades of blue, black and grey, the vibrancy of the saris and kurtas were a treat for our photographers. The downside to this was nothing other than, due to the captivating beauty of all the pictures we receive, the selection process so much harder. Short listing the pictures became a Herculean task, taken on by our Head of Photography, until she finally managed to come up with the few that best encompass the day.

SMUN 16 is the fourth Model United Nations hosted by Bombay Scottish School, Mahim. Our participants range from first time Munners to expert delegates who have participated in various MUNs.

Who runs the MUN?

The MUN is run by a number of teams, each of whom have their own duties, and without even one of them, SMUN 16 wouldn’t be the conference it is today.

The head executive body, the Secretariat, which comprises of:

  • Rushabh Kapasi – The Secretary General.
  • Esha Sridhar – The Deputy Secretary General.
  • Vickram Peter- The President of the General Assembly.
  • Siddhant Bapat – The Charge de Affairs.
  • Aditi Batra – The Deputy Charge de Affairs.

Along with the Secretariat, we have the Organising Committee, consisting of the Press, Design and the Administration Teams, who have been essential in setting up the conference.

And last, but most certainly not the least are our Executive Board, the Chairs, Deputy Chairs and the Moderators, who ensure smooth working of the committees.

The Rebels

Zara Humranwala

As most “first days” go, this one was not as eventful we’d hoped it would be. Just an hour into committee, you could already see the Chair Persons yawning due to lack of debate taking place. But this changed after the committee’s first plan of action made by Prime Minister David Cameron was passed and received by the Assad Cabinet.

There were constant updates coming in from the other Cabinet, which made the discussions even livelier. We could see colorful placards flying up in the air to introduce motions, give speeches and mainly question the other delegates. JCC 2 – the Rebel Cabinet was filled with mainly first time MUNers but the delegates really surprised the Chairs (and probably themselves) by raising some great questions and putting across a lot of valid points.

The committee as a whole was extremely united to the extent that no motion raised was failed and for that matter, they were all passed with a full majority, which is something I’ve never seen at any MUN before and is commendable. The first delegate to receive a sweet as a prize from the Chair was King Salman of Saudi Arabia and he gladly claimed it with a smile that reached his ears.

The stir silence of the committee was disrupted with the brief introduction of the panel. The chairperson gave a warm welcome to the delegates to make them feel more at ease. In the sea of many faces, some anxious ones could be spotted. The committee swiftly moved into the lobbying session.

The screeching of chairs being pushed back caused a ruckus as the delegates hurried towards each other, some of them were milling around aimlessly while others desperately looked for as many allies as possible. The agenda that overpowered the committee was concerning biological warfare. After one and a half hours of serious lobbying, The Delegate of United States of America was the only country to have submitted their resolution. There was a kaleidoscope of different opinions clashing against each other. The United Kingdom and Russian Federation suffered a major blow when many signatories backed out of their resolution as United States of America stole the limelight.

To ease out the tension of the rivalries, the delegate of Cuba, popularly known as the self-proclaimed ‘Great Flirter Dude,’ used his apparent charms on several  ‘lucky’ ladies. The committee then proceeded into formal discussion.

SOCHUM Boredom

Farishta Anjeerbag

At the start of committee, delegates started off by using their lobbying time wisely, selling resolutions to neighbouring countries, passing comments on each other’s outfits, and making amendments to their desktop backgrounds. More than an hour into the session, as the Chair was still allotting ten more minutes of lobbying every ten minutes, during which the delegates managed a brilliant demonstration of their competency by sending in resolutions with erroneous formats. The only exciting part of the session proved to be the banging of the tables, to acknowledge the presence of the Secretary General of MUN, and boredom occupied all the scope left for any action.

Different Ways to Channel Your MUN-spiration

Eeshta Bhatt

SOCHUM was rather eventful on the first day. The chairs spent a majority of their time formatting faulty resolutions, thus delaying formal debate.  But it proved to have little effect as first timers looked around in confusion. While some anxiously put together hastily made resolutions, others couldn’t resist the temptation of showing off their outfits in a selfie.  Even after the start of committee very few motions were raised, with the deputy president constantly picking out delegates to speak for/against resolutions. Most delegates were least interested and few even resorted to sending chits stating nothing more than “entertain me.”

VIETNAM: The ‘pulse’ of the IslandsIMG_3646

Tanisha Jain

At the end of the one-hour long, intensive lobbying session the People’s Republic of China was the first delegation to present their resolution to the Executive Board of the Security Council.

The delegation that hit the ‘bulls eye’ with their point of information was the delegation of Vietnam. They pointed out that Vietnam had claim over the Islands in the South China Sea and questioned the delegation of France as to why it had not been included in the resolution. This earned Vietnam a “pulse” candy from the President of the Security Council.

A Disgruntled DelegatePIC 2

Akanksha Gupta

The delegate of Japan raised a point of personal privilege, requesting the President to scroll down to the first clause of the resolution. However, the President, who was attending to Vietnam’s point of information. Looking rather annoyed, they incorrectly put forward a point of parliamentary enquiry, asking why his previous point had been ignored. The President duly apologized, at the same time informed the delegate that he was supposed to raise a point of order.

Paradox of the Crisis Committee

Rishima Shetty

The joint crisis committee began with a lobbying session during which the delegates came up with a retaliatory declaration of war against the rebels. This declaration was backed by the entire committee.

An atmosphere of seriousness, which was expected by the crisis committee, was missing for most part of the session. The delegate of the national Syrian army and the Islamic state walked in to give the meek, defenceless delegates awake up call while other delegates were indulging in games. With lack of clarity and direction, delegates found naming their planes more amusing. All in all, the first session of the committee was unproductive and failed to meet its namesake as a crisis committee.

And The Day Commences

Lisha Noronha and Aditi Shah

The lobbying session took off with an enthused beginning. The likeminded delegates gathered inputs from each other in hopes of creating a resolution.

Majority of delegates concentrated on the Kashmir agenda and put in efforts to remedy the effects of the crisis.The delegates of UK, Japan and Sweden merged their resolutions over issues that did not involve the Kashmir conflict. The delegate of Germany was so passionate about the agenda that they were willing to leap over all obstacles whether physical or metaphorical. Contrary to the belief that the delegates would confide in India, the odds were in Pakistan’s favour. The delegates of Jordan and Nigeria saw eye to eye with those of the people’s republic of china who wanted Kashmir to be able to choose where they wanted to settle.

Shout out to the Deputy Chair for their expertise throughout the session. Regards to the special guest of the Specpol who managed to remain level headed and clear any confusion among all delegates. Here’s to a splendid first day.

SMUN

There are some things that grasp your attention, demand your imagination and force your thoughts to evolve. An election to the office of the Secretary General of the Bombay Scottish Model United Nations for the year 2016 qualifies as one. I’ve had the privilege of MUNing at Scottish since SMUN began in 2013. I was barely able to restrain myself from jumping with joy at my election as the SecGen of SMUN’16. As SecGen, I fully intend to revolutionise SMUN, and key to this change is Esha Sridhar, my Deputy Secretary General. Esha is a formidably brilliant organiser, thinker, MUNer and a deputy only in name, being as close to and equal to SecGen as possible. Vickram Peter, is one of the most capable controllers I have had the pleasure of knowing, and it is a relief to have know that I have someone of that caliber as the President of The General Assembly. Chargé D’affaire Siddhant Bapat and Deputy Chargé D’affaire Aditi Batra are immensely efficient and unbelievably hard working. I have the utmost confidence that they will organise a conference worth remembering. The Secretariat is ready, and we will make SMUN’16 phenomenal! Infinity is Now!

Cathedral MUN
Being a part one of India’s oldest and most prestigious ‘Model United Nations’ -Cathedral Mun –  has opened my eyes, introducing me to new aspects of the world and making way for ideations to solutions to many pressuring worldly affairs.
The best part of my experience was the chance to meet people from all over the country and be exposed to different cultures . I learnt to escape my shell and interact with people who shared their aspirations with me.
The MUN helped me grow and exceed all expectations, because, at the end of the day, your voice doesn’t matter unless you speak up.
At CMUN, I learnt that we must all strive to perfect our world to see a better future.

HFS MUN

Between 17th and 19th of July Model United Nations was organised by Hiranandani Foundation School with participation from  fifteen other schools from various parts of Mumbai. The event saw fierce debating coupled with good old-fashioned fun. The Students maintained professional decorum throughout the event. In deference to the MUN code of conduct students were seen calling each other ‘delegates’ even outside of committee. With over three hundred students participating, the competition was tough but that didn’t stop the BSS Mahim students from walking away with three ‘best delegate’ awards. Five other students of BSS, Mahim walked away with various other prizes.
