Only the fittest


shall survive
The battleground is set, the
warriors armed.
Try not to fret; to get away
unharmed.
Delegates get ready to fight,
and to contrive,
for only the fittest shall
survive.
The MUN we've all been
waiting for,
Ladies and gentlemen, it has
arrived.
Make alliances, or declare a
war,
diplomacy shall be revived.
Newcomers, prepare to be
treated to a delight,
in a new world of placards,
formals and points
MUNQS shall dominate with all
its might
Delegates, do not disappoint.
In times of hopelessness and
perplexity,
do not despair,
Come up with something
witty;
Do it with a flair.
With an EB that is as
charming as it wise,
the placards will have to rise.
While one charms with his
smile,
the other observes you all the
while.
Whether a slip or fall, colossal
or small.
Beware! Prevent things from
going askew,
For as it always has, the IP's
watching you.
-Tanya Dutta

EB
As delegates and the IP, we are aware what the
executive board wants from us :P
Excluding smart arguments, heated debating,
exclusive chits and presence of mind, the EB does
need a lot more to call a committee the best it has
ever done, because here at MUNQSMUN, when we
say its the battle of the best, we mean it.
Un-moderated Caucus: When two of the finest
MUNers of the school and the circuit chair, they
expect diplomacy to NOT die during the UN-mods but
they wish to see diplomacy accompanied by
exemplary leadership skills. So, delegates, perform
being decent.

IP
Unmoderated Caucus, you say? A few delegates
standing on the chairs, a few shouting derogatory
words, and add a few just loitering around waiting
to be invited. And there you go! Every IPs dream
come true.

The delegate with the nice tie, and the one with the
sea blue eyes...
The hyperactive delegate, sending chit after chit to
the EB, and the one nearly dozing off in the

CHITS: The delegates are expected to write legible


chits, relevant, concise, to-the point. The chits shoot
like arrows, when all other weapons die.

committee, dreaming of a land far away...


We notice, we pass a chit, we comment. The best
part? You wont even know it.
