R.C.H.R. Words From The Wise
“Relationship” is just another word in the English Dictionary but to put it into words and define it is truly impossible. It is just one word but has meanings galore. There are so many relationships that we all experience, not only the ones with our parents, loved ones, siblings, friends, peers, etc. but also, a phone (to be more specific our Blackberry), a special song that you just can't stop hearing, your favorite Television series or movie, your favorite hangout place, etc. It is the bond that we share with any of these things or people that make a relationship what it is. The best relationship that I have ever been into is MY Relationship with R.C.H.R.- A bond which is beyond words and can only be experienced. It just gets more special with every passing day and has in turn, given me so many more relationships that I treasure- my relationship with MY General Body, MY Board of Directors, friends for a lifetime an so many more. It's indeed a wonderful that the editorial team is doing this bulletin. The articles make one go through joy, nostalgia and a special feeling. It's now time for me to concentrate on the most important relationship in my life currently my relationship with “my books”. They have missed me as much as I am missing you guys right now. Love you all!!! -Rtr. Romeeta Sukhtankar, President 2010-2011, Rotaract Club of H.R. College.
From the Editors’ Desk
If there's one feeling, one phenomenon, one thought and one word that defines us as a club, it would have to be LOVE. A small four letter word, that has the power to overshadow a hundred misdoing, a thousand words of hatred and a million sentences of hate. Amidst all the laughter with every Breaching Out and amidst all the case taking, at the end of it, we're all one big family, full of love and care. Through thick and through thin, we stand by each other, and that, according to us, is our greatest strength- to LOVE. Just like a closely knit family, we've seen ups and downs, but we've ensured that at the end of every tunnel, there is bright sunshine. As Editors, we had planned this bulletin right at the start of our term, and are proud to see our coordinators bring you even closer this Valentine's Day!
Spread love. Spread smiles. Spread joy.

Co-ordinators’ Insight .
A Relationship is like a roller-coaster, it has its ups and down, but at the same time it teaches you the true meaning and importance of life. A relationship that cannot be defined, feelings that cannot be expressed in words, moments that leave you feeling special… summing all this is indeed tough but we are sure that the articles will make you drift into memories and special moments, which make life worth living. This bulletin is our attempt to highlight all the relationships that are bound by this one special feeling of love. We hope we can bring the club closer, this Valentine's Day! -Rtr. Meenakshi Dhanani and Rtr. Purvi Parikh, Editorial Co-ordinators 2010-2011, Rotaract Club of H.R. College.

R.C.H.R. When I actually started writing this article, I had nothing to write about. It's because I did not have any matter or I could not put a few words of English together to phrase sentences and gradually an article. I may have written a few articles here and there but this one was the most difficult. It's only because summing one such relationship between a brother and a sister, is absolutely and undeniably impossible. But an effort to describe a relationship as beautiful as this one is an opportunity hard to let go. It is very rightly said that "A friend may not be a brother, but a brother will always be a friend." Every brother and every sister may quarrel each day but very rarely people realize that it's out of the sheer love that they have for each other. We have always seen the arguing and the insulting in public without any inhibitions or any worries about the consequences. Very rarely it is realized that they know the consequences and are mentally prepared to face them together. The bond between a brother and sister is God-sent and extremely sacred. Unlike every other relation, there is very less need to nurture it too. A brother is somebody who informs you that you don't have to bother when we are together and at the very same time, the sister believes it. On the other hand a sister is somebody who bothers the others around just to make the brother happy and content. There is a lot of give and take in this relationship, giving of petty warnings and grins, and taking of all the non-sense and indirect love. It is definitely the most important relationship of all kind. No matter if the brother is from another mother or the sister is from another mister, the bond is always the same. The best part is that you can make any boy or girl around who you share a regular and normal bond with, your brother\sister respectively, and then things just change for the good. All these things that I have written about are with a magnifying amount of personal experience. I have a brother who is four years older to me but when we are together, age does not become a barrier. I am as matured as him and at the same time, he is as kiddish as I am. I know him more than nobody else does and after all, what good is a secret when there isn't a sister to share it with... Similarly, he has constantly been guiding me regarding a few necessary decisions and appreciating the right ones I make on my own. The biggest benefit of having an older brother is that his experience counts and you are permitted for all those things that the "you-are-a-girl" fact restricts you from. I have had a few mind-boggling experiences with my brother and I'm genuinely thankful for these most beautiful memories of my life. You can't go on for long when you have joyful tears streaming down your eyes while you're reading an article with such a topic. I'm very sure you too have been thinking of your own brother\sister while reading this article. That is the charm of having a sibling. The best part being, you know he is all yours. Indeed a beautiful relationship that need not be described further. -Rtr. Rhea Kotak

Essence of Life
Love is Patient, Love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, and it is not easily angered, It keeps no records of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves. Love might be only a four letter word to some, to few a meaningless feeling and a waste of time, but the people who have actually experienced love, it means the world to them. It is the greatest emotion of all. Love isn't blind or deaf or dumb. In fact it helps one see things he has never seen and love makes him say stuff he will never say. When a person loves someone, he/she mean the world to him. He cares about that person more than he cares about himself. One should love someone for who they really are and not what they pretend to be. The person should also love you for “just the way you are”. Love can never be demanding. Love means that you trust that person, you will do anything for that person, you know that person will be there for you and you will be there for him/her too. If you love someone then you should never be afraid to tell him/her because sometimes it can get too late. Never be afraid of telling someone that you love him. Love can tear people apart but love can also make them live happily ever after. Never give up on someone without trying because love can do wonders. It is valentine's day, the day to express your love for that particular person, go ahead, do not be afraid. There are so many examples of true love: Romeo and Juliet, Nathan and Haley Scott, Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf but the most awesome example is of Edward and Bella. Twilight showed us love between a Vampire and Human, this proves that love isn't impossible and it can happen between the two weirdest people also. This was said by one famous person: “Hatred paralyzes Life; Love releases it. Hatred confuses Life; Love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens Life; Love illuminates it.” LOVE HAS NO OTHER MEANING OTHER THEN THE MEANING 'WE' GIVE IT! -Rtr. Sanchi Khetan

When we say that the relationship between a child and his mother is the one with maximum emotions-it is a very truthful statement. It is the most special relation in the life of any individual. he mother is the one who gives birth and life to the child, but the child gives the mother a new life with his birth. A woman's maximum emotions are attached with her child. She can really fight the world for him. It is just the same with the child. No matter what is seen on the outside, the child feels immense love and has a lot of respect for his mother. It is indeed a very unique relationship. A mother may not be physically present with her child but she knows exactly what her child is up-to and the best part is that the child is aware of this. This is about adolescence. When we still talk about the child being an infant, the child has the most connection and attachment with his mother. Any new accomplishment or achievement is still incomplete until the mother knows of it and this feeling continues even after the child is old enough to be a father/ mother himself. All these things that I have written in a formal manner are with a lot of personal experience. Any individual who reads this article will agree and have similar thoughts and will say the same things when given such an emotional and non- contradicting topic to write about. -Aditya Pourana
It s A Way Of Life As every year passes on, the Rotaract Club of H.R. College sees new people entering this magnanimous club. And with each passing year the bond between the members and directors have just gotten closer. From stories that I've also heard, 5-6 years back, directors would come do their projects and leave and there would be this huge void between them and the members. And then as years passed, we realize that's it's not the 20-22 of us that can lead a legendary club like ours every year but it's the 100-12.0 of you'll sitting in the room that make the club the No.1 club in the city. And after all underlined motto of the club is that to have fun, while learning a lot more. And that's possible only with you'll around. We just want have fun while teaching you'll of what we've learnt through the years. Coming to this year, trust me we've probably had more fun that ever probably more that what we had last year. And I speak on behalf of the entire board this year that we are privileged to have you all here with us this year. Individually we know a few of you'll. And for the remaining, we just want to get to know better. We've had your support, we wish for your support and in case you'll need any support, we're always there. Thank you for being there! Cheers. -Rtr. Aniket Jotwani

R.C.H.R. Teacher - An Angel In Disguise A student teacher relationship can have a significant influence on a child's development. These important relationships are often the building blocks in the early stages of a child's life, and can continue to influence the student's behavior into adulthood. Teachers often act as role models to their students, and children will commonly look to them for support or guidance. The relationship between student and teacher, if it is to be maximally productive, must reflect certain attitudes and commitments of each to the other. Specifically, three elements must exist in a student's relationship to a teacher: First, the student must respect his or her teacher and hold him in the highest esteem, for this is a necessary prerequisite to accepting his advice. Regarding someone who is only giving factual information, and not assuming the role of mentor, this condition becomes less critical. Secondly, the student must trust the teacher's concern. The student must believe that the teacher always has his or her best interests in mind. If the student would sense some ulterior motive, some self interest, or even carelessness in the teacher's instruction, he or she would not be able to surrender whole heartedly to the teacher's advice, and this would make the entire exchange meaningless. Finally, the student must commit himself or herself to following the instruction with utmost discipline, for only then can the intended effect be realized. Just as a doctor's orders must be followed precisely, since failure to do so could cause more harm than good, so a teacher's "prescription" must be obeyed with equal conscientiousness and deference to his superior knowledge and authority. The teacher also has three levels of responsibility to his students in relation to giving advice:

R.C.H.R. A Reason To Live Friendship! A word which is used by almost everyone but, very few actually mean it. It's a bond stronger than any other relationship in the world according to me. It gives us joy, it gives us freedom to share our sorrows, and it's a bond which makes our life better in all ways. Sometimes we make wrong friends too. Sometimes we make a wrong choice in selecting our friend circle. We would want to go to a group who is cooler or has more reputation as such but at the end of the day, we realize ourselves that we have very few true friends. Even after realizing we make the same mistake. I guess its human nature that even after making a mistake they will repeat it. Friendship is the most unique relationship that can be shared by two people or more people. It is a way of living life, because according to me life without friendship is a body without blood. -Rtr. Yash Ratanpal
When My Heart Skipped A Beat...
There is no feeling more comforting and consoling than knowing that you are right next to the one you love. This one person has never given me a chance to feel alone, has comforted me in times of need and stood as a staunch support whenever I saw no one around. It is absolutely not human for a person to not sleep in the night till I go to sleep, wake up way early so that I can get up and study, to never miss anything related to the club and still come and spend time with me, to think every time about me though his plans for himself are never set and keeping me totally unaware of his problems as he sits to solve mine. I feel extremely fortunate to have him in my life and to see ourselves grow in the relationship every day. We fight on the stupidest of the things, care for each other in the minutest and are certainly happy to the fullest and that's what makes it a relationship unique from others. I usually don't express myself that often but now that I have got a chance would just like to thank you for everything that you done and you seriously make life a lot special for me. -Rtr.

R.C.H.R. World Apart A life to share, A hand to hold, The love and care, A word untold. The warmth of their nearness, The brightness of it all, The feeling and its sheerness, The only lovely fall. Everything appears, More beautiful than they were, Lot of happiness, some tears, The best thing to occur. If we knew this is what We were waiting for, In destiny we were caught, Could not ask for any more. It is all just a world apart. It is unexplained. It is all in the heart. It isâ€Ś all just a world apart. -Asmita Pathak
IT SEEMS MOBILE PHONES ARE PROVING TO BE HANDY FOR COUPLES IN LOVE WHO CAN'T MUSTER ENOUGH COURAGE TO EXPRESS THEIR FEELINGS FACE TO FACE. ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY IN BRITAIN, THE MAJORITY OF COUPLES IN RELATIONSHIPS ARE MORE LIKELY TO TEXT THE WORDS 'I LOVE YOU' TO EACH OTHER THAN SAYING IT FACE TO FACE. A SURVEY IN U.K. FOUND OUT THAT 61% TEXTED 'I LOVE YOU' TO THEIR PARTNER ON A REGULAR BASIS COMPARED TO 22% WHO SAID THIS TO THEIR PARTNER FACE TO FACE.
