My name is Aniroodh Shankar and I will be the chair for the UNSC (United Nations Security Council) at the second TISBMUN. I was born in Chennai where I lived for about a year before moving to Bangalore for 3 months and then Delhi for 2 years. After Delhi, I moved to Hong Kong for a year, then to Singapore where I remained for a full 11 years at one stretch and then finally back to Bangalore as of 3 months now so I am new here but I do have a rather large scope on international issues and relations as such.
Enough about me though, this is about you. MUN is a medium through which students as delegates can effectively and logically argue and debate, it has given me so many opportunities to express myself. It makes you grow as a person; the people you meet, the topics you debate and the mass debate skills that one can develop for life.
There is no argument that the UNSC is the most powerful committee in the United Nations today, it is what deals with keeping the peace and is established to promote peaceful coexistence among countries. You're in the big league now; the UNSC makes all of the major decisions: to declare wars, to end it and albeit diplomatic resolution.
TISBMUN is a result of our hard work and on behalf of the entire Dais party in the UNSC and every other committee I would personally like to welcome all of you to TISBMUN II. Warm congratulations on being a part of the UNSC and Good Luck!
