Mumbai MUN 2018

About Us

Mumbai MUN

A debonair personification of international diplomacy, Mumbai MUN has been a conduit, transcending academia into pertinent leadership. An assorted collection of UN committees to pursue, it proffers an engaging opportunity for delegates vying for meaningful deliberation. Mumbai MUN is back again, with its seventh installment in 2018 as a three day conference on the 23rd, 24th and 25th of February.

The theme of this year's edition is Paradox of Progress. While we see abundant progress in various starata of society around the world, we also are witness to some of the negative side effects of this ambitious climb in status. As diplomats, one must recognise the balance between progress and mitigating some of it's deterring aftermath, or else, the whole point of progress can get marred. So join us at Mumbai MUN 2018, analyse the paradoxical nature of progess as we see today, and contribute to breaking this viscous cycle!

Since its inception in 2012, it took dedicated planning, research and hard work to make the very first edition of Mumbai MUN in 2012 a colossal success. The conference is an expedient platform to debate pressing global issues; to take on new perspectives; and build strong networks; turning passion into outcome. There lies an opportunity of interacting with hundreds of highly motivated students from diverse backgrounds for the 3-day summit along with its alluring features. Mumbai MUN, the unique and culturally stimulating conference, promises to etch an unparalleled memory in your mind, daring you to come back for more!

Mumbai

An imbued air, a nomadic delight, seven islands for seven chakras; one destination- Mumbai. For some their muse, the rest, a ruse! A pearl in the bosom of the sea, this jewel of a city warrants spiritual contemplation at the mere sight of the paradox which Mumbai harbours. From the masses that throng the famous local trains, to the hush that blankets its quaint bylanes, it is no surprise that one is splashed by a tidal wave of primal desires that Mumbai elicits.

Continuing the bipolarity, and the people's appetite for it, Mumbai has displayed flawless character and integrity, which is evident from the illustrious personas who have resided in it. The Mahatma found solace in its idiosyncrasy while Jamshedji Tata chose to redefine it with the Taj. These stalwarts and their memories were immortalised when Mumbai and its people refused to bend to the will of nefariousness, time and again. The serenity from its spiritual enclaves as well as the thrill from its trade, Mumbai offers something in every walk of life. The innumerable temples and festivals representing India's culture and traditions constitute the soul of this city. Preaching pragmatism, Mumbai houses the oldest stock exchange in Asia and is residence to some of the richest personalities in the world.

From the unassuming vada pav to seven course gourmet meals, Mumbai has it all. Restaurants, clubs, theatres, cinemas, shacks and stalls; this city caters to every taste and pocket and sports a happy-go- lucky candour. Take a journey of meaning, of beauty and surrender yourself to this enigma that basks in culture, in technology, a blend of modern conception and Victorian sensibilities, the ambition of the few and the complacence of the many and rest in the culmination that the sun casts with its dusky hue on the city and its waters; in the Bay of Bombay!
