Ed R. Johnson, Rotary Club of Roanoke, Virginia, USA 25th President of Rotary International, 1935-36 “One of the most inspiring Rotary experiences that I have had. . . was the participation in a regional conference in Venice. . . . More than 1,500 Rotarians and members of their families, coming from 29 countries, gathered to meet at a time when Europe and the world were torn by dissension..They wanted to explore every possibility to help in the development of mutual understanding and thus preserve international peace." Issue: 31, 6th Feb, 2014 Business Meeting Last Thursday, it was the time for some serious discussions as part of a business meeting among the club members. The District Conference Chairman PDG Lakshminarayan and Conference Secretary PP S.K.Sanjay were felicitated for the grand success of the Conference. Rotary Mysore contributed Rs. 5,000/= towards the medical expenses of a deserving recipient Mr. Jayanna towards his medical expenses. A 100 YEARS BACK – a vocational trip to a reel ranch On the occasion of the 109th Birthday of our beloved Rotary, it is worth turning back the pages of history. Here is a pictorial description of one of the first Rotary Vo c a t i o n a l V i s i t s b y members of the Rotary Club of Los Angeles to the Universal Film City, upon the invitation of Rtn. I. Bernstein of the Universal Film Manufacturing Company, somewhere in Jan 1914. The visit was scheduled in place of the weekly luncheon. The visit was closely restricted to the members of the club and their families. An invitation was sent out to the members and a reservation card was enclosed in order to “count noses.” In those days, even the affluent Los Angeles Rotarians did not all have cars. The ones with cars were requested to pick up the ones without cars. The entire membership of the club fell into step in the most harmonious way and it was an excellent idea for getting members acquainted to one another. So it was that nearly 400 Rotarians with family were enlisted and only ONE Rotarian could not make it! The Universal was one of the dozen film factories in Los Angeles. At this time there were 45 films being shot, 14 of them in this one studio.(New York city had 8). About 24,000 ft of film were shot in this company every week. A saw mill, a lumber yard, and a complete papier-mache plant were some of the sets here on that day. Mountains, desert, ocean, foothills, plains, cities and farms were all shot here. Universal had the largest moving picture stage in the world, 60'x400'. There were 500 regulars working on the factory involving a cash payroll of $17,000 per week. The President's car and the pilot car led the motorcade of nearly 100 cars to the 1,800 acre ranch. They were greeted by Bull – an Indian elephant along with camels, lions, tigers, monkeys and snakes. On that day, 4 other films were being made at the same time - a Civil war story, a circus play, a penal camp scene and a cattle ranch setting – all within a radius of a furlong. A temple
CHAMUNDI scene of Samson and Delilah was under shoot for our Rotarian visitors, this one setting costing $2,000 for shooting only 70ft of film. A fine lunch was served in a unique manner by the employees of the company. It was a lifetime experience to be waited on by Mutt and Jeff, Sitting Bull, Alkali Ike, General Grant and Julius Caesar! As a grand finale, the audience itself posed as the “mob” to watch the hanging of the hero of the film; at the last minute when the trap was about to be sprung, the heroine rushes in to the rescue with the real(reel) guilty man. With everybody happy, the hero released and the guilty man caught, the Rotarians gave three mighty cheers for the host of the day and left for home.

This was inaugurated by PDC Swarna Chittaranjan. Rotar y Information It was 109 years ago this month that Paul Harris and three of his friends founded the first Rotary club. His goal was simple: to create an oasis of friendship amid a city of strangers, with those who shared his values. Over time, the philosophy of Rotary developed and matured, and Rotarian ideals expanded to include service, vocational ethics, and international understanding. As Rotary grew and spread, Paul Harris envisioned a world in which conflict would ultimately melt away – a world where personal connections and acceptance of differences would relegate war to history. If people could only come together in a spirit of friendship and tolerance, he felt, they would soon realize how much they had in common. Paul Harris was fortunate in his lifetime to see the Rotary idea take hold and establish itself in Rotary Mysore sponsored a State level Chess Competition in association with Mysore Professional Chess Academy on the 18th and 19th Jan 2014, at Ideal Jawa Rotary High School premises. RI President's Message – February 2014 dozens of countries around the world. Every week, in 34,000 communities, his vision lives on in every Rotary club meeting. But nowhere in the world does Paul Harris' vision take life as vividly as it does at our annual Rotary International convention. At a convention, for a few short days, we see the world as Paul Harris imagined it: a world where men and women from every corner of the globe come together, to build peace, to serve others, and simply to enjoy one another's company. Differences of background, politics, culture, and religion are woven together, all part of one bright tapestry. It is an unforgettable experience, one that Jetta and I look forward to every year. Every convention is different, and every one becomes a memory that we cherish. This year, I will have the tremendous privilege of presiding over the 105th Rotary International Convention in Sydney, 1-4 June. Sydney is a vibrant international hub, a gateway between East and West, and a wonderfully appropriate city to host a Rotary convention. It is tremendously diverse, rich in culture and history, and one of my favorite cities to visit; at once exciting and relaxed, it is a place where I know I will always feel at home – and always find something new to see and do. In 2014, Rotary members will gather to say G'day from Sydney. We will come together as friends and Rotarians, to reach out to the world and to one another, in an environment where all are welcome. I hope you will join us as we celebrate our successes, look to the future, and discover new ways to Engage Rotary, Change Lives.

The rest is history. Number of Polio endemic countries has decreased from 120 in 1988 to just 3 in 2013! In India, the number of polio cases has come down to nil from a whopping 50,000 cases per year spread all over the country before 1988. Rotary International's contribution to the Global Polio Eradication Initiative since 1988 accounts for nearly 14% of all contributions to the global budget and represents approximately 66% of private sector contributions to the Initiative. Rotary has so far spent US $ 1.2 billion [Rs.7,200 crores @ Rs.60/=] for the program, which includes US $ 175 million spent in India alone. Rotary's contribution would be more than 1.5 billion US$ by the end of the program. The value of each and every Rotarian's personal involvement to the program is incalculable. Rotarians have delivered vaccines by camels, helicopters, trucks and motorbikes. They have managed to reach children living in some of the most remote and inaccessible areas. Rotarians across the globe have worked (on occasion risking their lives) endlessly in this battle against Polio. The result: Polio is nearly gone; with only 3 countries left. – Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nigeria. INDIA POLIO FREE The last Polio case detected in India was Rukhsar Khatoom from Howrah in West Bengal on 13th January 2011. India having completed 3 polio-free years, the World Health Organization will declare the disease officially eradicated from its Southeast Asia zone, which includes 11 countries. Way back in 1985, Rotary International had promised the future generations a Polio free world. It was in 1985 that Rotary embarked on its most ambitious humanitarian program ever in history to immunize the children of the world against Polio. The PolioPlus program envisaged working with International organizations, [World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations International C h i l d r e n ' s Emergency fund (UNICEF), US Centre

(ISO Chairperson Ann Anuradha Nandakumar and I, had prepared a series of articles on the occasion of the District Conference. Here is one of them…Your Editor) Mahatma Gandhiji's message of nonviolence, ethics, peace, and service are well known and these are some of the issues that are so close to our heart in Rotary. Gandhiji knew Rotary, and had met many Rotarians and also spoken at some of the th Rotary programs. In 1925, on 18 August, he spoke on “Ethics and Economics of Charkha” in Rotary Club of Calcutta. Gandhiji wrote an article, "My 7 points for a new world order", which appeared in the February 1942 issue of The Rotarian magazine. That article was also included in The Rotarian Reader, published in 1986, which contains the most precious articles published in Rotarian magazines during the first 75 years of its publication Rotary and our Leaders… Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru had participated during Asia Regional Conference held in Delhi. Since 1965, Smt. Indira Gandhi frequently participated in Rotary activities. A Past President of Rotary became Prime Minister of India - Mr. I.K.Gujral of Rotary Club of Delhi (1960). In 1999, Sri Atal Bihari Vajpayee became Honorary Rotarian and Paul Harris Fellow. Nearer home, our last Maharaja of Mysore Sri Jayachamaraja Wadeyar was close to Rotary thanks to our PDG Mr. Farrokh Irani's association with him (his company Jawa was named after the king), and Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadeyar was an Honorary Rotarian and Paul Harris Fellow. Rotary and the Mahatma (1911-1986). Gandhiji's picture adorned the cover page. And there is a remarkable similarity in the ways that Rotary's 4 Way Test and Gandhiji's Satyagraha were conceived and applied; as well as between Rotary's Motto of Service Above Self and Gandhiji's Mission in life of Helping the Helpless. Let's continue to 'Make Dreams Real' for the humanity at large, for the world we live in, and for our children...in true Gandhian way...in true Rotary way. RI's India National PolioPlus Society Dear Leaders of leaders engaged in Rotary to change lives, ThreeYears of Freedom from Polio! Congratulations! Congratulations!! Congratulations!!! January 19, First NID in a Polio Free India is over. From the reports I have, the performance seems to be satisfactory if not perfect. Not many District Conferences clashed with NIDs this year and Rotarians were free to participate. I am afraid a large number of children did not receive the Polio drops on the Polio Sunday. Rotary's promise of reaching polio vaccine to every child in the world continues to be a myth and the dream of a 'Polio free world' continues to be a mirage. The truth unfortunately is “same children are chronically missed every time.” Remember - Polio is now a Global Health Emergency: • If any child in the world is permanently paralysed by Polio it is now a Global Emergency. • If any child in the world is not reached by Oral Polio Vaccine it is now an emergency In this emergency we must be faster; more focused and be fully accountable. This is the emergency: if we don't successfully eradicate polio now, the consequences will be catastrophic. And the only way to prevent that is to ensure we get the vaccine into the mouths of every child, everywhere. - Dr. P. Narayana, Vice-Chairman
