Dear Thespians, The Performing Arts are art forms in which artists use their voices and/or the movements of their bodies, often in relation to other objects, to convey artistic expression—as opposed to, for example, purely visual arts, in which artists use paint/canvas or various materials to create physical or static art objects.

A poet finds what he or she is by touching what is out there, finding the real. Poetry is the language of the soul, the expression of passion, and the best way possible to explain ordinary situations in the most extraordinary way. Here, at Symbhav 2016, we offer you the opportunity, the chance to tell us who you are. To enrapture us with your story.

“A diplomat, who says yes, means maybe. A diplomat who says maybe, means no. A diplomat who says no, is no diplomat.”
Symbhav MUN is the coming together of people from across the globe who share their passion to debate, deliberate and decide on pertinent world issues. Symbhav MUN, a regular feature of the Symbiosis Law School Pune’s, annual fest Symbhav this year only gets bigger and better. With exciting committees and an excellent Executive Board, this promises to be a conference of a lifetime.
Remember Delegates, The Power is Yours.

Symbhav MUN shall be simulating two committees:
  • GA I: Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC) Agenda: Use of Drone Technology in Modern Warfare
  • United Nations Security Council
Agenda: Addressingthe Escalating Tensions in Burundi.

Rules of Procedure:

Model UN Preparation
Like real UN bodies, Model UN committees have lengthy agendas and many delegates who want to convey their country's positions. To help maintain order, Model UN conferences adopt rules of procedure to establish when a delegate may speak and what he or she may address. Some conferences adopt a few simple rules, while others use lengthy and complex rules of procedure. Because each conference is independent – there is no governing body for Model UN – rules of procedure vary. A few conferences adapt their rules of procedure directly from the United Nations rules while most use variations of the Roberts Rules of Order. It is essential to familiarize yourself with the rules of each specific conference you plan to attend.
Informally with one another and the committee staff to discuss and negotiate draft resolutions, amendments and other issues. At a Model UN conference, there is formal debate as well as informal debate, called caucusing.


Formal Debate:

During formal debate, the staff maintains a speakers list and delegates speak in the order they are listed. At this time, delegates have an opportunity to share their views with the entire committee. Delegates make speeches, answer questions, and introduce and debate resolutions and amendments. Formal debate is important to the committee's work. By not knowing the rules of procedure, delegates slow down the debate and hold back their committee's progress.


Moderated Caucus:

During a caucus, which is a temporary recess, the rules of procedure are suspended. To go to a moderated caucus, a delegate makes a motion to suspend debate and the committee votes. Caucusing helps to facilitate discussion, especially when there is a long speakers list. A moderated caucus is a mixture of both formal and informal debate. Anyone may speak if they raise their placard and are called on by the Chair.


Unmoderated Caucus:

In an unmoderated caucus, delegates meet informally with one another and the committee staff to discuss and negotiate draft resolutions, amendments and other issues.

Sun Tsu in the sixth century BCE identified the importance of being aware of and acting on strengths and weaknesses of both a manager's organization and a foe's. The art of war demands detailed analysis, precision of execution, manipulation and above all adaptability.
Though the battleground may be different, the principles remain the same.
This event is built on the art of business crisis management. Even the most well thought out plans can’t account for everything and thus can be turned to dust. Then things get worse, stocks crash, investors balk, people jump ship. Then things get worse. Debt piles up, revenues fall, lay-offs loom. Then things get worse. Be as innovative and cutthroat as you can to steer your company through another fiscal year. Bring you’re A-game or get shredded.
