Nehru's Cabinet


Background Guide Coming in Jan. 2020


Rudraveer Reddy

Welcome to UCBMUN XXIV! My name is Rudra Reddy and it is a great privilege to co-chair the specialized body this year. The Partition of India involved the splitting of a nation along crude, religious lines, leading to widespread massacres and the severely hostile relations between India and Pakistan that persist even until today. Therefore, as ministers in the cabinet of the first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, delegates will be expected to formulate substantive solutions to issues pertaining to domestic conflict, foreign policy, institutional crises, mass famine, and so on. As for me, I am studying Political Economy at UC Berkeley with a concentration in the United States. I was born and brought up in Mumbai, India and am currently a senior at Cal. My hobbies include engaging in long political debates, reading Roman classics, eating copious amounts of Indian snacks, writing lengthy, polemical essays and taking naps for prolonged periods of time. Look forward to seeing you guys in committee!

Yours,
Rudraveer Reddy
Chair, Nehru's Cabinet



Manisha Sahoo

Hello! My name is Manisha Sahoo, and I am honored to be your co-chair on the specialized body at the UCBMUN XXIV conference. This year’s committee takes place during the tenuous times following the Partition of India, in which the budding country was wracked with conflict and difficult decisions. As the cabinet of the first Prime Minister of India, you will have the responsibility of addressing the countless domestic and international crises that strike the region. We look forward to seeing your many creative ideas! Now, a bit about me: I am a sophomore here at Cal majoring in Public Health, with a passion for epidemiology. My hobbies include reading, oil painting, learning about evolutionary history and dinosaurs, and just generally laying around. I can’t wait to meet you all!

Yours,
Manisha Sahoo
