Preparations are ongoing for the 2nd World Universities Peace Invitational Debate (WUPID). Having been at the 1st tournament in December I'm really happy that Yunus, Saiful and all those involved in organising the tournament are holding it again this year.

Yunus from WUPID has posted the following on his blog http://mlysn.wordpress.com/

Having organized two debate events and numerous numbers of other debate unrelated events, I’ve grown to be more learned about the trick of the trade. This of course, is downright wrong.
Even when you spend hundreds of thousands for free accommodation, fun, quality adjudication core and etc, you would always be able to capture some unhappy, disappointed faces at the event – and as luck would have it, outside the event as well.
