January 20, 2015 divider image



Meeting was called to order at 6.30 PM by the 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 to various members.

Two new members were inducted in this meeting – Vijay Prakash Singhania & Aditya Saraf – taking club membership to 370.

Highlight of today’s meeting was the felicitation of Rtn. Smita Dhote Shiralkar a member herself of Rotary Club of Nagpur Fort. She belongs to Nagpur and is the daughter of a retired Air Force Officer. She was in news  recently for her journey, of about 1,400 KM by bicycle, traversing five states and reaching her destination, Puduchery, and spreading awareness on ‘Swachch Bharat Abhiyan’ on her way.

The following project announcements were made:

  • ‘Disha’ – career guidance camp dtd. 17/1/2015 by Manju Shahani
  • PR Seminar of 18th January, by President of Rotary Club of Nagpur Elite
  • NID Pulse Polio campaign dtd. 18th Jan. by Jehangir Doongaji
  • Smiling Faces (Scholarship committee) programme dtd. 22nd Rajiv Behal
  • President Bharat on Mentoring programme of 8th Feb. announcing absence of registration charges and appealing all members to attend it.
  • Next week’s programme by Shivkumar Rao

The evening programme titled ‘Achche Din Aayenge’ was a unique one, which was a presentation (individually) by five experts on their respective fields of expertise – Mahendra Kamath on Insurance, Pritesh Tank on Stock Market psychology, Gaurav Agarwala on Real Estate scenario in Nagpur, Khushi Pillai, Area Manager – TanishQ, on investment in gold jewellery. The speakers had very little time at their disposal to talk but they did justice to their topics. Jehangir Doongaji moderated the programme and also introduced the speakers, most of whom were our club members. His witty and humorous style made everybody regale in laughter……… certainly an evening to remember.

Vote of thanks was followed by announcement of Sunshine box collection. The meeting was adjourned with singing of the National Anthem.
