Fellowship with Festivals continued here on Durga Puja
I remember in the previous board meeting – our President Rtn Vidhya Subramanian brought an immense passion for all of us to collectively be together on this auspicious occasion to enjoy the Durga Puja family Bhog in the afternoon. It was nothing less than a great family bonding and a different kind of fellowship.
Our members enjoyed the Navratri fellowship gathering with the Durga Pooja Association at Chembur. A special Pushpanjali and Aarthi were performed by the participating members alongwith their families.
Our President also went ahead and sponsored a Pooja for the well-being of our Club
Rtn Kavita Kulkarni said about the event:
Today we had excellent fellowship along with Durga mata darshan.We attended Aarti and had prasad as lunch. Thanks Vidhya for organizing it.We got special treatment for Darshan as well as lunch, thanks to Vidhya.
Meeting with Rotary Spouses
A meeting was held along with spouses to understand the perspective of a Rotary spouse. It was an interesting meeting wherein the Rotary Anns described how the Rotary activities have affected their lives.
- PP Shobha Iyer taking views of the Rotary Ann Radhika Krishnaswamy
- The Apt audience listening to the experiences of the spouses
- Kavita Kulkarni‘s husband introduced himself as “Mr Kavita Kulkarni”. He had the audience laughing while narrating his experiences as the Rotary Husband
The event was ably conducted by PP Rtn Shobha Iyer and was presided by President-Elect Rtn Sangeeta Shahani. The contribution of games came in from Rotary Ann Anu Iyer.
Club Meeting with a Difference with Speaker PP Rtn Jhankar Gadkari
The Topic of the day was “ The Shield…the less known 27 years of Maratha History”. He went on to narrate the incident of the period of Marathas just after the death of Shivaji.
Club members and invited guests were in awe after listening and had many questions and things to learn from his deep knowledge of our cultural history.
Club Roster by Rtn Monica Gupta
Keeping the club together is never easy and one of the key enablers is to have the compiled details of all the members in the form of a Roster.
Rtn Monica took this on herself and tirelessly worked jointly with Club officials led by President Rtn Vidhya Subramanian.
Speaker Meeting with Dr Ashish Doshi on Diabetic Retinopathy
He gave a talk related to Diabetes eye care to ensure that anyone could maintain their eyes in a better manner and the precautions one could take to delay this process.
Dr Doshi also urged the members to become active eye donors as it was the need of the hour.
Club Meeting with Speaker Mr Sandeep Nerlekar
Our club meeting at our usual Bombay Presidency Golf Course became special with the presence of Mr Sandeep Nerlekar from Terentia who spoke at length about the importance of making a will and estate planning.
The idea came from the thought that in today’s environment …this cannot be written off the in any manner.
It was also a great opportunity for President Vidhya to release the club roster by Joint Secretary Rtn Monica Gupta, alongwith newly inducted member Rtn Prakash Gadgil
It was a great gesture by Rtn Sanjay Mehta to have invited our Guest Speaker and his good friend to come and share his knowledge as an expert on the subject.
Whether you have a simple set of assets and a plan for leaving it in your will, or a complex structure of owned assets, family members etc, he was able to give clarity and guidance on what’s required to be done to have an appropriate estate planning.
Installation of Interactors
The bond that our club Rotarians have with the Interactors and Rotaractors is very deep and in sync with the Rotary values. It also gets exhibited in the no of joint projects that our club keeps doing.
Our members actively participated in the Installation of Interactors from Gregarious School to encourage young minds on the path to serve and learn
Impact at Vijay Army Military School in Panvel
RC Deonar distributed Sports Uniforms and a milk drink to 400 students of Vijay Army Military School in Panvel.

Club President Rtn Vidhya also shared that our large-hearted Treasurer – Rtn Vishal Dassani gave 10 inverter bulbs with 3 hours back up each to Vijay Army School in Panvel.
Festival of Lights – Diwali Happiness Kit Distribution
The idea for this project came in from previous years and the core objective is to reach out to underprivileged children and elderly people and spread happiness and sweetness on Diwali.
The kits consisted of ghee besan laddoos, ghee Mysore pak, bhanjani chakli, shankarpale, karanji and a box of sparklers. It was heartening to see the smiles on their face and their eyes light up like small diyas when they see that they are not lonely on this earth, especially on the day of Diwali!
This project impacted the lives of over 500 people in and around the Mankhurd and Govandi areas.
Rtn Shivani Bansal actively contributed her energy and passion towards the development of this project.
President-Elect Rtn Sangeeta Shahani said:
Super work Shivani. A great feeling of giving. A big shout out to Vidusha (PP Rtn Padma’s grand daughter) who is always enthusiastic about their giving
Ops Restore Global Grant Audit
Rotary International (RI) is known for its continuity and sustainability and as part of that mission – every Global Grant project above USD 1 lac is reviewed at a deeper level.
RI appoints a cadre to visit the clubs and audit the project for which the grant is sanctioned.
PDG Dr Ravi Appaji from RC Madikeri is appointed as Cadre for our Ops Restore Global Grant Project.
We had the honour of Rtn Ravi Appaji visiting NBC after the initial due diligence was done over video connects.

It was held for the parents/relatives of the children of the KKM Centre in Bandra East. Spectacles were sponsored for the people who required
The response from the camp was highly encouraging with over 80 beneficiaries.
Fellowship Meet post Diwali Celebrations
Fellowship is always an integral part of our day-to-day life.
Rodeos have always been scaling up the manner in which member engagements have been happening and this one was yet another example
A fellowship meeting with spouses was arranged at Bombay Presidency Golf club where all the members present enjoyed the games and a well-planned musical night.
Members dressed up in the party theme colours of Blue, green
Kudos to Rtn Rohini Ravindran who planned everything in a seamless manner
Of course, President Rtn Vidhya Subramanian as always was the backbone to ensure that this was an evening worth remembering. She arranged a variety of gifts to ensure that every participant has an evening to remember and rejoice upon
Ann Ankita, Ann Anuradha and many others gave their best foot forward to have an evening of fun and joy – the credit goes to each Rodeo because they exhibited a great spirit to participate in every planned event.
Feedback from Ann Archana Parab about the event
It was a unique event or idea by Rohini where we backseater spouses were brought to the forefront to speak out our views. It was a fun-filled evening. I got to know how many entered the rotary family, how it changed their lives, and how much spouses support their Rotarian partners and try to be part of it. The main crux of most talks was fellowships and human connections and emotional attachments with each other. How once kids grow up and leave the family nest, this extended family will be a major support system in our old age.
The icing on the cake was the spouse game arranged by Anuradha. It was really an amazing evening
Feedback from Rtn Rohini about the event
What do I say- But A BIG BIG thank you.. for all that u and Ankita did last night.
Both of you truly carried the show on ur shoulders..
Wow.. some very strong shoulders and spirits..
Kudos to both of you..
Guru Dakshina in full!! [Btw, am waiting for this ;)]
Feedback from Ann Sudhir Kulkarni about the event
A very novice idea initiated by Rtn Rohini, that too with remote handling from Bengaluru, when implemented on 20 Oct 2022, at the regular Thursday meeting of Rotary Club of Deonar in the Bombay Presidency Golf Club Chembur, was indeed an insight into the work being done by the Rotarians in general and RODEOS in particular.
A few points as I recollect during the meeting are:
1) The spouses feel that their counterparts are doing great service to Society. Some of them were proud that she/ he is in the Rotary Club.
2) Another aspect of fellowship (in Rotary Club) was of great importance to some of them for twin reasons
- A) A helping hand when they were in distress.
- B) It was a means of filling the ‘emptiness’ in an advanced stage of life when own children will be away. (Much as I do not subscribe to this view. In my life when I joined the like-minded NGO, Lions Club, I was in prime youth myself, so also when Kavita joined the Rotary club, she was in prime youth too.)
3) The membership per se and taking responsibility for Presidentship, for all, gives a visible sense of confidence in the person.
4) For some, I included, it was a very private & personal view to express love ❤️ for their partner.
5) The view that Rotary clubs hold is international rather than local. A classic example is its Exchange Program. It has a wider horizon yet is grounded in its roots.
What I narrated hitherto may appear all prose, but on the whole, the meeting (we exceeded it by a full 1 hour) was hilarious courtesy of Shobha and active participation by both Spouses & Rotarians. I mention Ram, Arundhati, Vishnu.
RCC – Our continued success story with Shudh Jal, E-education, Medical equipment support
What started from just one village with RCC Shelu, our club RCD has come a long way in transforming villages and the numbers now stand at 5 RCCs and 63 adopted villages, to date.

Diwali Kit Distribution at Bal Kalyan Nagari and many other places
Rtn Shivani Bansal was apt in commenting on how our unstoppable veteran Rtn Vishnu Kamat has been busy distributing happiness kits on Diwali at multiple centres. Many members have been a pillar of support in this initiative as always
The kits consisted of sweets, savouries and a box of sparklers. It is very heartening to see the smiles on their faces and their eyes light up with joy. Places covered – Garib Nagar, Siddhartha Colony, Beggars Home, Chembur Children Home, Bal Kalyan Nagari, Grace Foundation, Gadkari Khan Centre

RIDE Rtn T.N.Subramanian (Raju) and Vidhya were at RI Headquarters in Chicago.
These images say it all however I would still like to mention that the act of contribution is never like a silver bullet and one has to keep doing it consistently.
Rising in the hierarchy of Rotary by their commitment and also equally contributing through monetary angle makes this couple one of the most sought after not just in our District but across the globe.
Ashwita follows the footsteps of Parents
The donation of Rs.6 lacs by Annette Ashwita Venkatesh – daughter of RIDE Rtn T.N.Subramanian (Raju) and President Vidhya speaks volumes of her commitment to uplifting the lives of others.

Sanjay Mehta in Action
Just thought of sharing the words of Rtn Sanjay Mehta…
I have never participated in any kind of marathon ever before. So, looking to challenge myself for the first time, with a 10K walk at the forthcoming Tata Mumbai Marathon 2023.
Also using the opportunity to raise awareness and funds for Madat Charitable Trust, run by a dear friend of mine, Dr Anand Parihar.
The trust focuses on two key causes, viz Cope with Cancer (financial, medical and counselling help for cancer patients and their families) and Female Empowerment Through Education (FETE). I have set an initial modest target of INR 1,00,000/-, but hope to exceed that, and raise more funds, with help of friends and other outreach.
Wish me luck for the marathon and help me raise awareness and funds for this cause.
