Dear SMART President Sonal Jhaveri,
You are indeed blessed to be chosen to lead your Rotary Club in
RY 2019-20.While this is indeed a privilege and distinct honour,
it puts a lot of responsibility on your shoulders.
Our District is recognized as a premier district, not only in India,
but in the entire world - all eyes will be on us and this adds additional
responsibility to ensure the flag of District-3141 continues to
flutter high in the Rotary world. I believe that the grass root
Rotarian is the most important person in Rotary – he is the
Inspiration and strength of Rotary. If we can act SMART and make
concerted efforts to involve and inspire him, we will be enriching
Rotary and can do wonders in our service activities.
Our RIPE, MARK MALONEY , has given us a wonderful theme for the
year – ROTARY CONNECTS THE WORLD.
Rotary allows us to connect. It allows us to connect with each
other, in deep and meaningful ways, across our differences. It connects
us to people we would never otherwise have met, who are more like
us than we ever could have known. It connects us to our communities,
to professional opportunities, and to the people who need our help.
As we begin our SMART journey together, with optimism, courage,
and joy, we know that this journey, like every other, will be what
we make of it. Let us approach the year that lies ahead, with the
spirit of service and friendship that has inspired generations of
Rotarians before us.
Wherever we are from, whatever language we speak, whatever our
culture or tradition, we are here together for one purpose--
To build a stronger Rotary so that more Rotarians and Rotaractors
and all in our family of Rotary can serve our world better than
Having planned our year well, now is the time to execute our plans—time
to ACT --
Remember friends – Our strength lies in TEAM WORK -- Let
us together continue to spread SMILES in the community, through
meaningful projects and selfless service .
Together let us resolve to make the SMART RY 2019-20 Exciting, Enriching,
Eventful, Enjoyable and Rewarding for ALL.
The District Core team and I will be at your beck and call, for
any help you may need to realize your dreams for the smart year.
My best wishes for a Glorious year ahead – the best your club
has ever seen— “Dua hai Ki Kaamyabi ke har shikhar pe
aap ka naam hoga, Aapke har kadam par duniya ka salaam hoga, Himmat
se mushkilon ka saamana karna, Hamari dua hai Ki waqt bhi ek din
aapka gulam hoga.”
You are our true strength my friends --- We truly believe that
we are because of YOU --
JI HA DOSTO – AAP HAIN TO HUM HAIN !
Yours in Rotary,
