Indore (Madhya Pradesh): The eighth edition of DCMUN, 2022, concluded on Sunday. Salman Khurshid Alam Khan, ex-Cabinet minister in the ministry of external affairs, a renowned Indian politician, a designated senior advocate, and an eminent author were the chief guests of this prestigious occasion.
The closing ceremony of Yuemanzekui, Daly College Model United Nations Conference, 2022, was a blend of action, appreciations of, and adorations for, the delegates who enthusiastically participated in the event and made it a stupendous success. As the last day set in motion, the delegates were thoughtful and ready to solve the crisis situation at hand. The committees researched painstakingly and articulated their views aptly to pass resolutions as the outcome of these three days of intense churning would reach the ministry of external affairs.
The students of DC choir rolled the pitch with the divine invocation followed by a scintillating dance-drama by Dalians, who set the stage on fire and fascinated the audience.
In his address, Khan praised the efforts of the delegates and the entire organising committee in making this conference a grand success. He also praised the delegates for showing their immense skills in weaving their way through the challenges posed by certain critical topics related to the diplomatic ties and tensions between India and China. He said the topic of the conference was farsighted, studded with contemporary relevance and wide open to pondering upon. He approved the fact that, at a time when India’s relationship with China is under a cloud, both the economic giants of Asia have to consider their roles in a holistic manner for the next century on the continent.
The chief guest congratulated the delegates who won awards and recognitions and motivated the rest, metaphorically alluding to the fact that “all flowers don’t bloom together and those that bloom even after spring are better noticed and recognised as they keep the essence of spring eternally alive”. The DC auditorium reverberated with laughter when he narrated a humorous story of Mulla Nasiruddin embedded with the moral that the essence of tackling a serious crisis is often through the witty sense of humour. In his concluding statement, he expressed his gratitude that India was in the safe hands of budding young diplomats honing their talents in different schools across the country.
Principal Gunmeet Bindra presented the college memento to the chief guest as a token of reverence.
The executive board members of DCMUN committees, The Council for Industry Management and Forecasting, Committee for Territory Disputes and Order, The Council for Refugee Relief and Humanitarian Assistance, The Economic and Financial Committee, The Council for Energy and Development, and The United States Emergency Council announced the names of delegates who won special mentions, commendations, high commendations and the coveted ‘Best Delegate’ awards.
Lastly, Under-Secretary-General Ayan Maheswari proposed the vote of thanks and Pragun Gupta, Secretary-General declared the closure of DCMUN, 2022.
