Mangaluru: The opening ceremony of the fifth edition of Muller Model United Nations (MUN) was held on 31 August at the Decennial Memorial Hall, Knowledge Centre.
MUN gives students the opportunity to learn about pressing matters that haunt our world today. It puts into perspective how much we have when compared to those who survive on barely anything.
Fr Ajit B Menezes, administrator of Father Muller Medical College, presided over the programme. At the outset, he congratulated the student committee for organizing the Muller Model United Nations. "MMUN is a unique feature of the Mullerian family. The spotlight news of the violation of human rights which we read in newspapers will be discussed on this platform. Cases of human trafficking are highly alarming. As future doctors, the need for addressing such issues is exceedingly important. We are bestowed with wisdom. We need to utilize this astuteness at the right moment for the right activity and on the right occasion."
Chairperson, Tanya Mohan Raj said Muller Model United Nations is a platform where social issues are brought to the knowledge of students and discussed. These sessions will also help the students in building up oratory as well as public speaking skills.
Of the two-day programme, day 1 will highlight violations in the Gaza strip and day 2 will include discussion on the status of workers and evaluation of the existing labour rights. These discussions will enable the delegates to research on the topic and to form an opinion that is based on the country provided. It is how they can convince the committee that what their country thinks is right and is indeed true.
Dr JayaPrakash Alva, dean, Dr Padmaja UdayKumar, vice dean, Dr Sanjay J Fernandes, incharge of Student Development Committee and Associate Professor of Anatomy, faculty members and student delegates representing various countries were present on this occasion.
