    Dear Rotarians,Our club bulletin and web site are a source of motivation for members, to better your involvement when you see the kind of services being done during the month in print. Credits

    given to achievers should be a further inspiration for the others who are yet to be fully involved in our clubs activities. We are doing well, but as in all matters we need to seek constant and never-ending improvement.Attendance in meetings though not sacrosanct should certainly be taken seriously. Change and improvement should be in how you as a member perceive your role in this club. Change in timings at this point of time is certainly not under consideration, changes in the meeting format will be set in so as to appeal to a larger section of members. Rotary is all about interaction, fellowship, and commitment and stretching yourself just a little bit to find the time, find the interest in being truly involved. Do not take your membership in this glorious club for granted. To be serious about your membership you have to respect the Rotary movement. If you are not serious but just play to be with the winning side others will perceive this intrinsic quiddity of you almost by instinct.At this point of time practices for the charter night celebrations are going on at full steam. Almost 60 + members, spouses and children are involved. The practices span over three weeks and this is another opportunity to have a lot of fun and more importantly to get to know each other better. All the daily practices will culminate to a perfect show. But that's not the point; the real reward is that each participant is integrated more with the Rotary spirit. There are many of you who have not experienced this joy, I urge you to come forward and participate in our future events.Projects for the month continued unabated. The Slum Soccer and the Mobile Computer Bus projects were hugely successful, well executed and a much enjoyed event. The committee specially the ladies were truly involved and struck an emotional bond with the slum children. RYLA camp provided valuable training for the youth. Senior citizens from the slums were taken for a picnic at Dragon Palace temple. These were amongst the many projects executed to near perfection by the respective committees. Service is measured not by the amount of money you have spent or the efforts put in by you. It should be measured by the satisfaction you have gained, relief provided and burden eased. I trust you are enjoying your Rotary experience as much as I have been,Season's Greetings, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.Yours in Rotary,

    Tauby Bhagwagar

    I may not know all 320 members, but at least, I have the opportunity of knowing 320. This was the answer one of our members gave when asked as to how many he knew in the Club.

    We are a 321 member Club, the second largest in the subcontinent and still growing. Are we moving in the right direction? Or are we in an endless number game? These are questions which have no answers. Or maybe many answers, and all of them different. But one thing is for sure, our Club is what it is today because of its members. Quality as well as numbers.

    Quality is subjective. You can do very little to measure a prospective member on that scale. But more often than not, the quality of members is as good as the organization (club) that they are a part of. Akin to the fact that the same person will litter on the streets of Mumbai, but not on the streets of Singapore. And it is here that our Club has all the right credentials discipline, culture, protocol, work ethics etc. So every member, old or new finds himself aligning to the Club's ways.

    The numbers give us working hands, thinking and planning minds, financial muscle, viability (when it comes to many functions and events), contacts, reach and vibrancy. Because you are good, you attract more. Addition of members makes you better. And the idea IS to keep getting better.

    In pursuit of getting to be the best!!!!!
