From the Editor’s Desk

The very fact that we have joined Rotary movement means we
are willing to share our time, talent and treasure with the less
privileged people of the society.This indicates that we are few
fortunate of those whose basic needs are met and wish to move
up to satisfy our higher hierarchical needs.Way forward is to
emotionally connect with a specific need. And Rotary provides
an excellent path. Just follow the path and discover the joy en
route to self-realization and discover the purpose for which the
GodAlmighty has created us!

Happy Reading!!!
