Third edition of Model United Nations at Canadian International School witnesses great participation from students across the country


 

November 13th, Bangalore: After the successful completion of two previous chapters, the 3rd  edition of the CISMUN held at the Canadian International School in Bangalore, witnessed a greater participation from students across the country. With the theme of “Empowering the silenced”, this year’s Model United Nations (MUN) saw a participation of 220 students from 16 schools with a majority of the delegates from Bangalore for the two-day event.

The objective of a Model United Nations is to bring about a UN type simulation, awareness and pro activity regarding pressing world issues while developing skills of advocacy, debating, diplomacy etc. amidst the students. The committees in place for the CISMUN include the UNSC (United Nations Security Council), DISEC (United Nations General Assembly First Committee), UNHRC (United Nations Human Rights Council), ESOSOC (Economic and Social Council), WHO (World Health Organization) and FAU (Future African Union). Many voices are simply not heard and this so often leads to apathy, injustice, neglect and merely moving ahead with the status quo, negating social and economic growth, and instilling a societal malaise.

Speaking on the theme for this year’s MUN, Shane Kells, Head of School at Canadian International mentioned “What better message to focus on than lending a voice to those who may not be in a situation to be effectively heard themselves”.

Pragmatism, perseverance and proactivity – 3 key words that will help us all work towards a better tomorrow. The world is changing and we are educating students for jobs and skills that probably don’t exist right now, so making sure that we are perseverant and proactive will reduce the need to solve problems that are of our own making”, said Robert King – High School Principal, speaking on the event that has seen two successful years.

  • Jewellery Industry on a decline during Apr to Sept: City’s wholesale and retail market for bullion, Zaveri Bazaar, witnessed lacklustre trade today as sale of gold jewellery slumped owing to scrapping of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes by government as part of its clamp down on black money and corruption. “After brisk buying at higher rates for gold till late night on Tuesday, the bullion market witnessed lacklustre trading activity today following ban on Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes. People are withholding their purchases of gold jewellery till higher denomination notes will come under circulation,” said Ajit Shah, a leading jeweller.
  • Demand overall moderate: The industry is already passing through bad phase due to lower demand despite ongoing wedding season. We hope things will improve in the near future, he said. The demand for gold during ‘Dhanteras’, the gold buying festival and Diwali, remained moderate compared to last year. Retailers in the city blame the slowdown in economy to global factors. After a muted Navratri and Dusshera, gold demand saw a slight pickup, but it was mostly on the back of discounts and festive offers.But perhaps, the biggest factor affecting domestic demand is the continued push towards regulation and accountability that the government is levelling in general, including the gold market.
