Charter Nite 2013

December 20, 2013 divider image

Come 13th December and our club gears up to welcome, receive and host the District Governor for its Charter Nite celebrations which traditionally is the most important evening in the Rotary calendar. This year, in a slight twist from tradition, the club hosted famed Hasya Kavi Padamshree Surender Sharma who regaled the audience with his special brand of tongue-in-cheek humour. The evening kicked off with another twist in the tale with the President recognising Past Presidents of the club in pageant form, where the Past Presidents along with their better halves took Centre stage and posed for a picture rarely seen by our members, that of all being on stage together. Even the Secretaries of the club who had not progressed to become President were honoured and recognised.

When Shri Surender Sharma took the stage, he touched on social and national issues, which not only had the audience in splits, but also got each one thinking. If a picture is worth a thousand words, this little giant proved that his words were worth a thousand pictures. This was also the first time that our charter night was outsourced, in the sense that members and their families were not involved in putting up a show for fellow members. Following Shri Sharma’s rendition, PP Yogesh Thaker and his orchestra took us back decades by performing yesteryear hits with soothing and haunting instrumental numbers. A few Past Presidents also sang to the accompaniment of our in-house musical genius. Needless to mention, the house of friendship and dinner which followed were enjoyed by all present and the nip in the air was perfectly matched with the high levels of enthusiasm and involvement of Rotarians and their families.

Chairperson Neeta Singh was ably supported by stalwarts PDG Satish Sule and Vilas Kale to present an unforgettable evening. Habib Khan also accompanied Neeta on the mic and the both of them ably conducted the evening.
