International Press


The International Press is the observing body that shall take upon itself the task of shooting down the wicked and the mighty - the ones who shroud the truth. With no rules of procedure, the only rule that stands is that the words must be your own.

Shubhagata Choudhury

Head

Here's a name to remember – Shubhagata Choudhury. With an experience of 11 MUNs in the International Press (6 as a reporter), Gato knows of no award beneath a High Commendation. His press conferences have always left heads turning (read as: rolling). You may know him as the Deputy Secretary General of SRM-R MUN 2017. A voracious reader with nihilistic tendencies, he enjoys satire, especially when layered in pieces critiquing politics. He might seem like a bit of Sith Lord, as he deals in absolutes. There's no need for clarifications, but just for the record, his writing style is assertive of his well-founded opinions. With all the power of the syllables of his name combined, Shubhagata believes in the weight of the nib of a pen and the inevitable inkshed that awaits.

Harsha Sista

Co-EIC

An innate interest in anything related to literature and a lifelong love for writing have contributed in moulding Harsha Sista into the person he is today. Making the inevitable leap from writing to editing very early, he has become a seasoned traveller on this particular path. A voracious reader and a Tolkien fanatic, he puts out his persona into everything he does. A strong believer in the Freedom of the Press, here is one who chooses the pen over the sword to be his instrument of change.

Jash Kalyani

Co-EIC

Jash Kalyani is a student taking his advanced levels in English, Psychology, Business Studies and Economics at The Oxford School in Dubai. He feels that words are the humblest form of human expression and strongly believes that writing is his window to the world. Having participated in several Model UN conferences first as a delegate and then a reporter, Jash is now able to connect his classroom inspired strategies to make the IP's output for appealing, reader-friendly and unique. The Singapore Model United Nations was the turning point in his career where he picked up the finer details of journalism to combine them with his knowledge of diplomacy and the English language. Honoured with a bronze medal in essay writing by the Royal Commonwealth Society, Jash loves to convert thoughts to words in his own simplistic and yet creative manner.

Shruthi Subramanian

Co-EIC

Shruthi Subramanian, a 3rd year student of Information Technology from SRM University, is someone who has never wandered beyond the temple that is the International Press. Participating as a delegate was a one-time fling; there is no changing her now. She has an experience of 14 conferences as a part of the press. She enjoys the freedom that the International Press comes with, like the lack of rules of procedure. The one rule that stands is that the words must be your own. She strives to be a perfectionist, just to take a dig at the voice of anxiety. Her sense of humour happens to be top-notch. (Haters will say that it's Photoshopped.) Writing has always been a passion, but it was through the International Press that she learnt how to channel her words in a way that they could truly make a difference.
