EDITORIAL An eventful Service to the New Generation Month has completed in Style. After an arduous and successful gamut of the youth activities in the all important service to the new generation month with every activity being prudently maneuvered, the director PP Rtn. Biswaranjan P deserves to be complemented for leading all the way but more than that Chairman Rtn. Mihir is worthy of a special accolade for showing conscientiousness in fulfilling every activity in great style and strength. His apt choosing of the vibrant chairmen for every activity is laudable. Rtn. Gopi A for the drawing competition, Rtn.Partha T for the youth merit award, Rtn. Ajay V for the Young Singer competition, Rtn. Srinivas P for the Young Musician competition, Rtn.Anil A for the debate competition, Rtn. Vijay B for the Spell bee, Rtn. Balkrishna S, Rtn. Mihir himself keeping the portfolio for the Marathon, and our Hony. Secy. Rtn. Murli for the varied completions at the Red Cross School of Blinds led by the Prez. Rtn. Bablu E needs to be acknowledged for their whole hearted effort and support for organizing all the events in great splendor and fashion. Our own members too should be admired for extending all possible help specially the judges and sponsors for their acumen and generosity. The member through Chilka put their hands together for a promising and spine chilling youth activity month. Keeping that momentum on we should now focus our attention on the vocational service month. The Director Rtn. Rajesh C has an important role to play through his committee chairmen in order to stay at par or even excel better than the preceding youth events. Rtn. Rajesh is equally competent and assiduous as well. Let’s hope he displays his best rendition. Now it’s about to impress you on the Vocational Service. Editor : Rtn.

AN INTRODUCTIO TO VOCATIONAL SERVICE All of us actively practiced vocational service before we became Rotarians, or else we would not be in Rotary. We were selected because our club friends were convinced that we are competent, trustworthy, fair and honest people. All we need to do is to maintain the faith our fellow Rotarians have placed in us by precept. We all know that Membership in Rotary is based on a member’s vocation, with each club striving to create a microcosm of its community’s business and professional world. This unique feature provides the source for Rotary’s historic commitment to vocational service, the second of Rotary’s four Avenues of Service. Through vocational service, Rotarians are expected to adhere to and promote high ethical standards in all their business dealings, recognize the worthiness of all useful occupations, and contribute their professional expertise and skills to addressing societal problems and needs. The club and its members share responsibility for promoting vocational service. Each club should develop projects that allow members to use their business and professional skills. Members are expected to contribute to these projects and to conduct their own business dealings in accordance with Rotary principles.

R I P RO G R A M S include The practice of Four-Way Test Of the things we think, say or do: 1) Is it the TRUTH? 2) Is it FAIR to all concerned? 3) Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? 4) Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned? And the Declaration of Rotarians in Businesses and Professions — provide a road map for practicing ethical behavior in the workplace and other areas of life.

One Rotary Center Vocational Service focuses on: • Adhering to and promoting the highest ethical standards in all occupations • Recognizing the value of all useful occupations, not just those that are pursued by Rotarians • Contributing one’s vocational talents to meeting the needs of the community During October, Our club has a tradition of laying focus on this important avenue of Rotary service. We will consider dedicating at least one meeting to discussing Vocational Service and plan a project or other activity to carry out through the year. Some more suggested activities for our club to consider: • Devote the first meeting in October to examining Vocational Service, including The Four-Way Test and the Rotary Code of Conduct. After expanding members’ awareness, solicit their input in planning projects for the remainder of the year. • Introduce a “classification talk” series in which each member gives a five-minute talk on his or her vocation. These presentations give members the chance to learn the inner workings of jobs other than their own, including the various problems that arise and the solutions used to address them. • Present a vocational award to someone in the community who has exemplified outstanding professional achievement and high ethical standards. Promote the presentation in the community, and consider making it an annual event each October. • Help young people prepare for their careers by sponsoring a character building project, career day, job shadowing day, or mentorship program. Support professional development in the community by sponsoring a professional networking event or workshop, or start a career counseling program to help unemployed or underemployed adults compete in the job market. • Have club members volunteer their vocational skills on a community or international service project. Many volunteer opportunities can be found on ProjectLINK, an online database that allows Rotary clubs to publicize projects in need of assistance. (……………Many more details to be followed next week)

October 2 International Day of Non-Violence The International Day of Non-Violence is observed on 2 October, the birthday of Mohandas Gandhi. This day is referred to in India as Gandhi Jayanti. In January 2004, Iranian Nobel laureate Shirin Ebadi had taken a proposal for an International Day of Non-Violence from a Hindi teacher in Paris teaching international

students to the World Social Forum in Bombay. The idea gradually attracted the interest of some leaders of India's Congress Party ("Ahimsa Finds Teen Voice", The Telegraph, Calcutta) until a Satyagraha Conference resolution in New Delhi in January 2007 initiated by Sonia Gandhi and Archbishop Desmond Tutu called upon the U n i t e d Nations to adopt the idea. On 15 June 2007 the United Nations General Assembly voted to establish 2 October as the International Day of Non-Violence.The resolution by the General Assembly asks all members of the UN system to commemorate 2 October in "an appropriate manner and disseminate the message of non-violence, including through education and public awareness." The United Nations Postal Administration in New York City prepared a special cachet to commemorate this event, following a request from the Indian Ambassador at the Permanent Mission of India to the UN. The boxed pictorial cachet design was prepared by the UNPA and was limited to cancellation at UNPA's NY location (not Geneva and Vienna). The UNPA has indicated that all outgoing UNPA mail between October 2 and 31 carried the cachet. Information on various philatelic material carrying this cachet is summarized at a website dedicated to Gandhi philately and can be accessed here. Gandhi’s legacy lives on From Rabindranath Tagore to Mohandas Gandhi to Amartya Sen, great Indian minds have addressed the necessity of holistic education for peace and personal development. This century-long legacy is reflected in the goals of a new UNESCO Institute.

CASE STUDY ---Rtn.PP.V.V.R.N.Rao You are a senior level officer in a company. A former employee of your company, who was fired due to poor quality work, absences, and lateness related to his drinking problem, informs you that he has applied for a position at another company and has already given your name as a reference. He desperately needs a job (he is the only person, capable of earning in the family.), and he asks you to give him a good recommendation and not mention his drinking, which he assures you is now under control. He also asks you to say that he voluntarily

left the company to address a family medical crisis, and that the company was pleased with his work. You like this person and believe he is a good worker when he is not drinking. You doubt that he really has overcome his drinking problem, however, and you would not recommend your own company hire him back.
