WEEKLY MEETING: 13th NOV. 2014

The meeting was called to order at 6.30 PM by President and half a minute silence was observed in memory of the departed. The Four-Way Test was read and birthday and anniversary Greetings were extended by Pres. Bharat Goenka to various members.

Two new members were inducted – Vinay Maheshwari, proposed by Mahendra Kamath and Rajkumar Agrawal, proposed by Nakul Malani.

The following project announcements were made:

Yogiraj Hospital ophthalmic camp was announced by Pres. Bharat on behalf of Dr. Rajesh Singhania, Mentoring Committee announcement was made by PP Shiraz Gimi, Youth Service and Blood Donation camps announcement by Rtn. Raj Shah, District Events by Pres. Bharat Goenka, Organ Donation by Dr. Ravi Wankhede, Scholarship announcement by Rtn. Rajiv Behal and next week’s programme by Rtn. Akash Agrawal.

Highlight of this meeting was the guest speaker for the day, Ms. Lopamudra Raut, finalist of the Miss India-2012 and Miss Diva-2013. She was introduced by Rtn. Akash Agrawal in a lucid way. A tall, charming, beautiful and smart girl in her early twenties, Lopamudra was born and brought up in Nagpur. After her schooling from ICSE, she went on to do her Engineering from Raisoni College. Till such time she had never considered contesting a pageant like ‘Miss India’; it was only when a friend of her suggested and encouraged her to give it a try, the idea took root in her mind and then there was no looking back. Lopamudra also narrated how her family, particularly her father, always wanted her to concentrate on studies and nothing else. Given this backdrop, her father was actually opposed to her preparing for and participating in any beauty contests. However, the severe urge in her to give it a try at least once helped her convince her family. Lopamudra also gave insights on the parameters, the contestants and how these competitions are conducted.

Vote of thanks was proposed by Rtn. Rakesh Awachat and Sunshine box collection was announced. The meeting was adjourned with singing of the National Anthem.
