Chamundi #33 23Feb2014 Rotary Mysore Weekly Bulletin

Maurice Duperrey, Rotary Club of Paris, France 27th President of Rotary International, 1937-38 “Rotary is so simple that many people do not understand it, and some even misunderstand it. Rotary is not a philosophy. . . not an all-embracing world point of view which answers every question.. .and satisfies all the dictates of the heart and mind. Rotary is merely an association of business and professional men united in the ideal of service." Issue: 33, 23rd Feb, 2014 Events @ Rotary Mysore Thursday 20th Feb 2014 PFG Mike Forney & Dr. Krishna C. Murthy & team from RID 5440 addressed us on “Rotary in US”, Rotary Center, 6:30 pm. Sunday 23 Feb 2014 – Come one, come all! Celebrate W o r l d Rotary Day with Fellowship at KRS backwaters (Blue Lagoon). Cocktails (thanks to Sooper(B) boys of Rotary Mysore) and Lunch (sponsored by Rtn. Raghavan) hosted. Inner Wheel members will conduct some games. Kindly attend with Anns and Annettes. Don't forget this is a theme party - wear Ethnic dress with a local flavor! The Blue Lagoon Some of us old enough to have seen English films in the early 80's at Ganesha theatre for Rs. 1.60 would remember “The Blue Lagoon” starring Brooke Shields. Today we have our own local Blue Lagoon island at the KRS backwaters, about 4 km from KRS dam. It is in the middle of the waters and is a happening place for the youth to hang out. You can reach the spot wading through the shallow waters. It is a beautiful picnic spot and the atmosphere is soo… relaxing. During Dasara, water sports are organized here. It is but appropriate for us Rotarians to feel young all over again, and visit this hotspot for fellowship and let our hair down. Have a blast… Sunday 2 Mar 2014 – Taare' Zameen Par – Jaganmohan Palace 8 am. TZP is upon us! It's Stardust time! Sunday 2 Mar 2014 – The D-day is fast approaching! Rotary Mysore's flagship event TAARE ZAMEEN PAR is upon us! TZP is the annual Dr. Mahesh weds Rotary Mysore congratulates Dr. Mahesh and wishes the couple a happy married life. program conducted for special children by Rotary Mysore supported by a team of volunteers from Infosys. TZP brings out innate talents of differently-abled children from various institutions in and around Mysore and encourages them to showcase their skills. All this is possible thanks to generous contributions from a number of our Rotarians every year and this year. It all starts with the Drawing Competition at 8 am sharp at Jaganmohan Palace auditorium followed by Cultural Presentation from various groups and schools of Special Children. ALL Rotarians with Anns and Annettes are requested to involve wholeheartedly and participate as always! The formal invite will be sent across. Nearly 950 special children will participate with 800 of them from 20 schools presenting different cultural programs. It will be a touching experience to watch the children perform with enormous zeal and enthusiasm. The selfsatisfaction that one derives from TZP is enormous. Encourage them, as always…

CHAMUNDI The Myanmar tour - by Dr. K.P.Vedanthan When the narrator is skilful enough, you could be actually doing a virtual tour of a place without moving out of your seat! One such occasion was last Thursday when Dr.K.P.Vedanthan literally took us through Myanmar (earlier Burma) on a round trip. His NGO Global Chest Initiatives has a presence there and he and his wife had occasion to visit the country on a few occasions. He started by saying one could get by with only one word “Mingalaba” which is their traditional greeting. There are over a 60 million people and 90% of them are Buddhists. 2% are Hindus. The country's history dates back to 1000 AD. The country's capital has recently been changed from Rangoon to Naypyidaw. Dr. Vedanthan was visiting the country on an invitation from Friendship Force Intl. As per a WHO report, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Diseases (COPD) would be the 3rd major killer by 2020 in Burma. Betel nut chewing, air pollution due to biomass etc that are prevalent there do not help. Dr. Vedanthan's team provided free medical services. The ethnic population is highly spiritual and Pagodas ensure that nobody goes hungry in the country. They have huge respect for monks and a sense of volunteerism – they offer free service. There are some 6000 pagodas in Burma.Dr. KPV celebrated his birthday brooming the Golden Pagoda with the bells ringing! Thank you Dr. K.P.Vedanthan for such an interesting presentation… Thursday, 13th Feb was Rtn. K.N.Prashaanth's birthday. It was celebrated with gaiety by the Rotarians, complete with cutting the cake and the birthday chorus. KNP donated an artificial limb on the occasion. Congrats Manjesh! When it rains, it pours – as far as Rtn. Manjesh is concerned. Good news came in doubles when he was appointed as Authorized Hyundai spares retailer for Mysore, followed by his Raj Motors being awarded best stockist and star performer of the year by Advaith. Congrats Manjesh, and keep it up! Congrats PP Chittaranjan! PP Rtn. Chittaranjan is now the Treasurer of NIE. Congrats Sir!

Walk Talk Eat It was no lazy Sunday for some of us Rotarians on the 16th Feb. When the alarm clocks rang in our collective homes at around 5 am, our family members thought we had gone crazy, cursed us and turned back to sleep. But we the 25 Rotarians did not give up. We were promptly at the Kukkarahalli entrance at 6 am even as it was still dark. Wonder why we are not so prompt for our weekly meetings! Raghavan was adamant that it was the Mylareswara Eats at the end which was the key reason. We had some surprise guests as well. Dr. Balu (SVYM) and Dr. Satish Vishveshwara (surgeon) accompanied us. Then the half hour walk began promptly at 6:15. There were clearly 3 groups Outside Mylary Rotary Information INDIA POLIO FREE Ready to go in no time - the fit leading from the front, the not-so-fit following, and the hopelessly unfit huffing and puffing but still making it.

That done, we thanked the good organizerinstigator-sponsor-all-in-one Raghavan for his zeal and magnanimity. All that was left now was to go home to rest our aching limbs and savor the rest of the Sunday. won out against the deadly, crippling disease. Chan recalled how in the 1970s, India was home to as many as 200,000 polio cases annually.
