Governor’s Monthly Letter Dear Rotary Leaders, Ann. Srimathi and I wish all of you a happy Dasara 2010. The month of September saw the successful conduct of ICGF on New Generations Sashakta. Thanks to the efforts of Dist. Director Col. V. Subramanyam, and Rotary Bangalore City Centre. The Vocational service month started off very well. We had a well thought out and successfully organized ICGF on vocational services. The catalog and product exhibition done for the first time, at district level was a grand success and it amply met the objectives of coming to know of their fellow Rotarians' vocations and furthering networking through their products and services. I am happy to note that we have succeeded in providing fundamental inputs to the youth on self employment opportunities in the Awareness Program organized concurrently with ICGF, again a first. Very truly, WE ARE BUILDING COMMUNITIES.

Rtn. Geetha Sukumaran, President # 56, 1st Main, 1st Cross, Vasanta Vallabha Nagar, Subramayapur PP, Bangalore-61.

I wish all of you the best. The process of selecting the RUSI Award for the best innovative SME was done in a professional manner and my special appreciation to Rotary Udyog and all concerned. I am happy that this event has taken off this year and could be a recurring event henceforth.

My official visits to the clubs as Governor have given me the satisfaction that every club is putting its best efforts towards fulfilling the goals and objectives of Rotary and I am pleased with the plans and performances. I am also thankful to the clubs for the hospitality showered on me during my official visits. Our efforts to BRIDGE CONTINENTS goes on unabated. Our GSE Committee has finalized the selection of team leaders for the two outgoing GSE team to USA. The Belgium nite was a grand success and it has strengthened our efforts to bridge Belgium with District 3190. As you are all aware the rotary foundation seminar and the ICGF on International Service “SAMASHTI” will be held on 13th November 2010. The program will be interesting and will open new vistas for BRIDGING CONTINENTS. So, friends, I request you to attend in large numbers. Before I conclude, Srimathi and I wish a happy and prospersous Deepavali to all Rotarians and their family! MN Suresh

First Lady Speak Dear Friends in Rotary, I had a very interesting and pleasant experience of Rotary in action. The useful and interesting programs which I saw in clubs have impressed me very much. I am really amazed at the untiring efforts of Rotary families in doing service to the needy. May your tribe increase! The ICGF on youth service and vocational services have been excellently organized and the outcomes of each of these events have surpassed my expectations. Congratulations to the organizing clubs and the District Committees. During the Governors Official visits to clubs outside Bangalore, I have had the opportunity of visiting several places of religious and cultural significance, which have an informative and thoroughly enjoyable experience. This is the festive season and the cheer and happiness in all families is not only apparent but spills over to Rotary too. I wish all of you a happy, prosperous and safe Deepavali Yours in Rotary Thank you Friends

Dist. to have an E-Club:

ICGF- New Generation “SASHAKTHA” a memorable event

The district is the process of forming “Rotary E-Club RID 3190Bengaluru”. An E-club by its unique nature is a Rotary Club in cyberspace with Rotarians from all over the world. All meetings are held via the internet. It will be 3190 based for operational & participation purposes. An E-club will have the same rules and regulations as the any other Rotary club and will follow the Standard Club Constitution of RI and the recommended Bylaws. Recently the Council on Legislation approved the formation of such Rotary Clubs.

Sunday 5th September, 2010

SASHAKTHA, the ICGF on New Generation was conducted by Rotary

excellent performance by Vasundhara Das. All present - the youth, the elderly, & the kids, grooved to the songs sung by Vasundhara and later learnt the art of drumming in a short span of 20 minutes.

An E-Club is a good option for those who find it difficult to attend Rotary meetings physically, but yet wish to be linked to the world of Rotary in Spirit of Fellowship and Service. A person cannot be a member of two Rotary clubs at the same time. Annual dues will be Rs. 8000.00 p. a. The E-club formation committee chaired by Rtn.M.N.Prasad, along with Club Service Director Rtn. H.R.Ananth, with the initiative of PDG.Rtn.Dr.Prithvi and inputs from Rtn.Ashis Dutta, are working out the modalities. If you are aware of any persons in your community who fit the qualifications of joining a Rotary club and are interested to join the district Rotary E Club, you may contact: PDG. Rtn. Dr. Prithvi Raval, District Counselor, Club Service email : dr_prithviraval@yahoo.com

Bangalore City Centre on 5th September 2010. It brought together, young minds and inspiring leaders onto one platform for empowering the youth into building a better nation. ICGF was a grand success with over 250 Rotaractors who actively attended the event and made it a very memorable experience. 7 clubs participated in the collage competition too which was held at the venue with the Rotafest Theme of “We are the world”. It all started with a quick introduction of the ICGF by the ICGF Chairman. PDG Rtn Darius Marshall took the centre stage and inspired the youth with his never-say-die spirit! He also touched upon the subject of delivering effective speeches that certainly helped several Interactors and Rotaractors present that day. The captivated audience was then treated to another riveting speech by Mr. Shafi Mather who stressed upon the

Governor’s Monthly Letter Dear Rotary Leaders, Ann. Srimathi and I wish all of you a happy Dasara 2010. The month of September saw the successful conduct of ICGF on New Generations Sashakta. Thanks to the efforts of Dist. Director Col. V. Subramanyam, and Rotary Bangalore City Centre. The Vocational service month started off very well. We had a well thought out and successfully organized ICGF on vocational services. The catalog and product exhibition done for the first time, at district level was a grand success and it amply met the objectives of coming to know of their fellow Rotarians' vocations and furthering networking through their products and services. I am happy to note that we have succeeded in providing fundamental inputs to the youth on self employment opportunities in the Awareness Program organized concurrently with ICGF, again a first. Very truly, WE ARE BUILDING COMMUNITIES.

Rtn. Geetha Sukumaran, President # 56, 1st Main, 1st Cross, Vasanta Vallabha Nagar, Subramayapur PP, Bangalore-61.

I wish all of you the best. The process of selecting the RUSI Award for the best innovative SME was done in a professional manner and my special appreciation to Rotary Udyog and all concerned. I am happy that this event has taken off this year and could be a recurring event henceforth.

APPOINTED ASST. GOVERNOR

a n d

My official visits to the clubs as Governor have given me the satisfaction that every club is putting its best efforts towards fulfilling the goals and objectives of Rotary and I am pleased with the plans and performances. I am also thankful to the clubs for the hospitality showered on me during my official visits. Our efforts to BRIDGE CONTINENTS goes on unabated. Our GSE Committee has finalized the selection of team leaders for the two outgoing GSE team to USA. The Belgium nite was a grand success and it has strengthened our efforts to bridge Belgium with District 3190. As you are all aware the rotary foundation seminar and the ICGF on International Service “SAMASHTI” will be held on 13th November 2010. The program will be interesting and will open new vistas for BRIDGING CONTINENTS. So, friends, I request you to attend in large numbers. Before I conclude, Srimathi and I wish a happy and prospersous Deepavali to all Rotarians and their family! MN Suresh
