Logo of DISEC at CBMUN 2013It was my honor and privilege to be the Assistant Committee Director of the First Committee of the General Assembly, DISEC, at CBMUN! Those three days were among the most treasured times of my life. I would like to thank all the members of the secretariat, the organizing committee and the LPSS for their hard work and efforts in bringing this fabulous event to life. It was a treasured memory to be with all the delegates. Here, I’d like to once again congratulate the delegates of Israel, Argentina and China on winning the best delegate awards and the delegates of Mauritania, Russia and Mexico on winning their honorary mentions; it was a well deserved victory for them! I’d like to give a special thanks to our Committee Director Hassaan Zafar, our Co Committee Director Zehra Qureshi and our ACD Sana Ameen Jan for making these three days really great for me!

On a final note, I wish all my delegates the very best of luck in any and every endurance of their lives, and success be theirs!

Belief and the Right to Believe

Did you know, that Belief and the Right to Believe are two separate things? A “Right to Believe” is something entirely different from a “Belief”. Understand the difference!

You, under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the constitution and/or law(s) of your country, have the Right to Believe in any/everything you may wish to believe in/about. I, sincerely respect your right.

However, your belief(s) might be quite different form mine, do I respect them? Well, that, my friend, is an entirely different question!

Evolution of the English language

The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5-year phase-in plan that would become known as “Euro-English”. In the first year, “s” will replace the soft “c”. Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard “c” will be dropped in favour of “k”. This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome “ph” will be replaced with “f”. This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.

In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent “e” in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.

By the 4th yer people wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing “th” with “z” and “w” with “v”. During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary “o” kan be dropd from vords kontaining “ou”.

After ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensi bl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru.

Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas.

If zis mad you smil, pleas pas on to oza pepl.

A Friend Unseen

It is strange to have a friend
that you have never hugged
lightly touched their arm
or looked into their eyes…

But you have
touched their soul
felt their heart
been embraced by
the warmth of their being…

A friend unseen
is not a friend untouched…
The eyes of the soul will gaze
the heart will embrace
the image will stand tall
but only in a dream…

-Patricia Walter

Dedicated to all my friends on the internet, whom I never met, yet they made me laugh! You guys are awesome! 🙂

Friends are connected heart to heart distance and time can't break them apart
