Participants of Beaconhouse Model United Nations (BMUN) were rewarded for their hard work and enthusiasm with a memorable performance by rock icon Ali Azmat on Saturday.
The delegates celebrated the night with youthful exuberance, head banging and dancing to their favourite Junoon and Ali Azmat songs. Besides the concert, there were other fun activities, which lightened the otherwise tense debating atmosphere.
“Activities like these are the reason why students are so enthusiastic about BMUN. It’s great how you get to interact and become friends with ‘Beaconites’ from other branches,” said Humayun, a delegate.
A haunted house was also set up, where the delegates’ lounge was transformed to a spine-chilling room with decorations. Students indulged in video games, keeping up the competitive yet friendly vibe.
In addition to that, a karaoke machine was also present, allowing delegates to make new emotional connections with personal song dedications.
Students actively participated in a scavenger hunt, Faiza, another delegate, commented with an evil smirk, saying, “It’s a fun way of getting even with opposing delegates for the points you lost debating.”
The highlight of the event was a futsal tournament, which will continue till the last day of the competition. For those unfamiliar with futsal, it is a variant of football from Portugal and is played indoors.
The global village from yesterday was also in full swing, with students showcasing the culture of countries ranging from Kuwait to Switzerland.
“The best thing about BMUN is that you learn about the history, culture, politics and social dynamics of different,” said Kinza, a delegate.
