THE 13TH EDITION OF
BHAVAN VIDYALAYA CHANDIGARH MODEL UNITED NATIONS
Our social fabric has many burnt patches. This rough cloth is testimony to our turmoil. Huge heaps of plastic in the middle of oceans sit quietly like kraken, portending our doom. Pools of blood gather dust on haphazard streets, lynched bodies, and skinned cows adorning the pavement. Boats full of refugees capsize and dreams are washed away into the waves like ashes. Bombs are dropped and cities are ravaged. Voices are silenced and dissent is termed as seditious. And, the glass ceiling waits patiently, to be shattered.
Many would consider it wrong to portray our world in such crude words, but euphemism hasn’t done this world of ours much good. We continue to turn a blind eye to the burning issues of the century, continue to comfort ourselves in our air-conditioned cocoons, too wrapped up in our materialistic pursuits to acknowledge the fact that our lives are on the verge of extinction. What is left is a gnawing feeling of helplessness, as we sit in front of our idiot boxes and listen to world leaders promising a better world. Earth seems to be impaired beyond repair, too fragmented to be salvaged. But, there is some good in this world, and it’s worth fighting for.
All that is needed is a platform for truth and discussion. A place where we can express ourselves, search for solutions, and rise together in solidarity; a medium away from cynicism and apathy, a platform for debate and dialogue; a constructive measure towards restoring our world. BVCMUN is that passage of progress, an earnest attempt to dismantle the status quo and shatter our cocoons. It is a collection of numerous voices; a deafening sound that can’t be hushed suppressed or silenced. It speaks for the oppressed and gives them a stand in the international arena. It reiterates the thought that happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, only when one remembers to turn on the light.
This MUN transcends barriers and shouts for human rights, cooperation, and peace. Through a multitude of agendas throwing light on the problems plaguing our society and a conducive environment for striving towards truth, it fulfills the innate need of humans for justice and freedom. It gives one an opportunity to unfetter the shackles of fear, hatred, and reluctance. It hands you a mike-an instrument to amplify your ideals, principles, and opinions manifold and make the world listen to you.
After all, it’s the very people who no one imagines anything of who do the things no one can imagine. We are the trailblazers of tomorrow. We must work towards a better future. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. And in those moments, we will become infinite.
OUR PREVIOUS EDITIONS
In a world swayed by deluded perceptions, treacherous conscience, and resentful intentions, one clings to this silver lining of hope straying past these dark clouds, steadying their quivering hearts. Unity is strength; and when this human cluster joins hands and musters the dynamism of their faiths, there is no big-small hurdle they cannot break. BVCMUN 2018 saw this amass of potential, obstinate delegation that gave us a glimpse of the brilliant new world we were entering into, where faith in each other and faith in our own selves, were strengths unparalleled to any anticipating war ahead of us.
The perennial force behind all histories ever made and all revolutions ever witnessed has been an ardent conviction, a conviction of going beyond the demarcations of racism, nationality and gender. Truth, the eternal conviction shapes from the decay of ruin and catastrophe, a hope for brighter tomorrow. BVCMUN 2017 was not just a stellar success but an inspiration for young MUNers which left them with an experience of a lifetime, and a belief that the way to salvation, comes from the path of truth.
The splendor, success, and grandeur of BVCMUN 2016 became the talk of the town. The various committees went along the theme ‘from Darkness to Light’ and touched on core issues corrupting the world like the challenges to nuclear disarmament, the question of scope, applicability, and enforcement of the right to self-determination, and the like. BVCMUN 2016 proved to be an event like no other by raising the unconventional quotient and by paving for great successes to follow.
