From the Secretary General's Desk
Dear Delegates, Faculty Advisors, Alumni, and Friends of GLCMUN,
On behalf of the Secretariat, with utmost pleasure, I welcome you to the 9th edition of the Government Law College Model United Nations Conference, 2017 scheduled to be conducted from 16th – 18th February, 2017 in Mumbai, India.
This address, as fancy as the idea of it may be, is generally the most difficult aspect of this role, for it is a rather testing task to sum up everything about an event of this stature in a little few lines; but as a matter of duty and as a matter of a long-time wish to express myself in this capacity;
I, Khushboo Jhunjhunwala, your Secretary General for GLCMUN ’17, take immense pride in writing to you for the ninth edition of India’s most awaited MUN conference!
As we set out to write a fresh chapter in GLCMUN’s vibrant and storied history, it is important for us to honor the real spirit of this conference, a spirit that has guided us since 2008. At the heart of this lies the delegate experience, whether this is the enriching debate and diplomacy inside committee or the unique opportunity of sharing one’s background and interests with passionate peers from across the globe. With a commitment to the experience of our participants in mind, the team this year is looking forward to providing the substantive excellence and social interactions that sets GLCMUN apart.
Here, we discuss, we debate and we deliberate on critical issues of global importance not just because we are morally obligated to, but because we believe that diplomacy and tact & sensitivity and awareness are truly essential qualities that the youth today must possess for them to be able to do justice to their very existence.
It is my sincere endeavour to provide you with a platform to step forth and hone your judgment and expression on a global scale and more importantly, encourage you to escape the shackles of public opinion and break free with an independent mind of your own that guides your rationale and appeals to your thoughts; for I personally believe in a fresh perspective, an audacious approach and a fearless expression of thoughts when it comes to a Model United Nations Conference or any other debate for that matter.
On this note, I assure you an experience #LikeNeverBefore, as promised, at this year’s conference and this confidence of mine stems from the presence of my exceptionally dedicated and efficient Secretariat team that forms the backbone of GLCMUN ’17!
Renowned for its unmatched hospitality, unparalleled cuisine, and a consummate level of debate in the heart of the City of Dreams;
I welcome you all to Government Law College, Mumbai for a three day chronicle that we lovingly call, GLCMUN.
Discuss. Debate. Deliberate; #LikeNeverBefore!
