Greetings dear Rotarians.
What an Award. What an Awardee.
Washington Sundar captured our hearts and admiration last week as we presented this deserving sportsman with our Youth Icon Award. Rahul Dravid re-affirmed our devotion to him with his signature dignified manner. And the Zoom-room was full!
What a meeting!
This week has started with a heady feeling of accomplishment and happiness. Standing applause to the entire team under President Kapil Chitale’s aegis, who worked at getting the Covid vaccination camps going, in partnership with the Greater Chennai Corporation.
It has been an arduous year for all of us, but I am amazed at the ability of our members to stand together, keep adapting to circumstances and make something beautiful out of chaos and uncertainty. Over 1700 people vaccinated at our Camps (the first of many, it would seem!). Our support as Nodal Agency for state-wide vaccination and well-received and undertaken. And our own bonds and relationships: Strengthened and infused with renewed energy. I am proud and humbled, in equal parts, to be a part of this Club. Viva RCM!
