As we step into the new Rotary Year, as is the norm every year, the teams across all tiers of the Rotary Organisation change hands.
With this change, what naturally follows is a change in styles of working and new ideas coming up – but what doesn’t change and is universally constant is the fact that every Rotarian, everywhere, has committed themselves to make this world a better place to live in.
My IPP (Immediate Past President), Rtn. Mamata Asthana has handed over to me her shoes to fill, and even though I wear a Size 13, dare I say they are pretty large to fill. But then, that seems to be a norm in our club. My promise to her is to continue in the same vein and continue with all the good work she started in the R.Y. 2017-18. Continuity is the key to fruition and continuity is what I assure.
Right from its inception in 2009, every president has taken our club from strength to strength. Be it our projects, our fundraisers or our fellowships – each one of them has been in a league of its own. I sincerely hope I can enhance the legacy and take it one notch further, before I hand over the reigns in a years time.
The theme or tag line, that I wish to adopt for this year is #BringBackTheLove. I genuinely believe that there is no bigger religion than Humanity and no bigger God than Love. The intent is to spread the message of Peace and Love through our various community driven projects.
On the personal front – I look forward to this year as a year of Learning for me. Getting to lead an illustrious club like the Lakers and hoping to get the BEST OUT OF THE BEST will surely help me grow as a person and will help me in all walks of life.
THANK YOU TEAM BoD – I am blessed to have a rock solid Board of Directors – adept and focused. Most of them have their plans laid out for the entire year. That’s such a load off my back.
THANK YOU TEAM LAKERS or more aptly put LAKER FAMILY – The team that Works together and Plays together. The team that Works Hard and Parties Harder. Its you who makes RCML amongst the top clubs in the District 3141. Lets live it Up #LakersStyle !
THANK YOU DISTRICT 3141 – DG Shashikumar Sharma, Our AG Dr. Paresh Thakkar and Our Dist. Secy. Rtn. Ganesh Vishwanathan – a huge thank you to you 3. In the year that has just started, you have not only laid down goals but also provided the paths to get there. You give the adage “Just a call away” a whole new meaning.
THANK YOU FAMILY – Thank you Dad and Mom for imbibing Service to others as our learning in our formative years, Thank You Vidhi, Dia and Jia for allowing me spend time on helping others, when anyways our Family time is scarce due to professional commitments.
LOOKING FORWARD TO A MIRACLE YEAR !
A PROUD LAKER – Rtn. Deepak H. Daryanani
