is the new

What if all of the 3400 Rotary members of
District 3080 fosters one orphan, see how
much difference they can make? This is the
thought that was provoked by the newly installed
Governor of the area, T.K Ruby. A bussiness tycoon by
profession, this man shared his heart's content on what
all can be done by him in his new role in a media
interaction at Holiday Inn, Panchkula.

On the way to make some difference, Ruby, addressed
the media persons saying, "I need your suggestions and
advice on how can I further improve the area other than
working on the Internal theme. I am
determined to create a difference and strengthen the
clubs furthermore."

Sharing one of his idea that he intends to do, the
pharmaceutical company head said, "A lot of old age
homes have members whose children leave them due
to difficult circumstances. I want the rotarians to work
out on how to find the children of these old people as it
would be the greatest gift for them. I want families to
acknowledge the importance of their parents and not to
leave them alone at the times of need. So, I would want
to unite these families and see the smiles on those
wrinkled faces who have been waiting to see their kids
faces' since long."

Wishing him best wishes for the future endeavours!
