Vizag RT 77: Chaat Pe Charcha Fellowship

Chaat pe charcha

At VRT 77 , over the years we have realized that simple fellowships increase the bonding among tablers and ladies more than any other fellowship . After chai pe charcha at Barista , its chaat pe charcha at Tr. Sandeep Chowdary’s residence Twinkler Dhruv , Tr. Sandeep Chowdary’s son donned the hat of a quizmaster and asked the tablers some very intriguing trick questions which left most of us stunned  (haha) . It was an all 4 tables fellowship so it gave us an opportunity to interact and mingle with tablers and ladies of other tables , It was a fellowship   where in we relished different kinds of snacky food like vaada pav , paani puri , bhel puri and various kinds of chaat . We just couldnt stop eating and the everyone were constantly chit chatting and keeping the mood alive . ,Tr . Vikrant from Singapore Round Table 1 was also with us and it happened to be his birthday so we had cut a cake in his honour . All in al a wonderful fellowship that will be remembered by all of us forever .

YIT,

Calcutta (Kolkata) RT 41: Independence Day Celebrations

Dear Friends,

As the rest of India celebrated its 68th Independence Day on 15th August 2014, CMRT 41 along with CMLC 65 and their twinklers celebrated this day with 450 kids at Shri Gandhi Vidyalaya on CIT Road.

It was a pleasure to watch them sing, dance and recite poetry on the underlying theme of patriotism.

The energy of the children was infectious and we soon found ourselves clapping to the beats of the dance and humming songs along with them.

After the program got over, our chairman Sandeep and LC 65 chairperson Adhishri spoke a few words of encouragement. This was followed by distribution of school bags and stationery. We also distributed packets of chips and drinks.

Following the program at the school, our twinklers planted a few saplings as part of a ‘Go Green’ initiative.

A perfect end to this rewarding project was a hearty brunch at the Bikers Café.

A few tablers went on to participate in the Freedom Drive across Kolkata as proud flag-bearers of RTI.

Varanasi RT 196: Indepedence Day Celebrations

Thou art the ruler of the minds of all people,

Dispenser of India’s destiny.

Thy name rouses the hearts of the Punjab,

Sind, Gujarat, and Maratha,

Of the Dravid, and Orissa and Bengal.

It echoes in the hills of Vindhyas and,

Himalayas, mingles in the music of the

Jamuna and the Ganges and is chanted by

the waves of the Indian sea.

The pray for the blessings,

and sing by the praise,

The saving of all people

waits in thy hand.

Thou dispenser of India’s destiny,

Victory, victory, victory to thee.

What a wonderful day it was. Just can’t forget that million dollar smile on the face of every child of Versatile School . It was a joint event by Varanasi Round Table 196 and Varanasi Ladies Circle 129 which is now memorable for all of us because it was our first project after charter and also it cherished memories of our school days.

The day started with flag hoisting by Twinkler Vivaan and Twinkler Revanth followed by National Anthem sung by the children.

It was now time for the drawing competition. We distributed crayons and drawing sheets to 300 students . The competition was divided according to their standards and levels. All the children were geared up and they shared their thoughts about Independence Day on their drawing sheets. Twinkler Aarna and Twinkler Vivaan were also part of this beautiful competition. It was amazing to see the thought process of the young talents. Some of them made flags, tricoloured kite, pigeons, flowers and lots of things.

Cr. tanu, Cr. Parul, Cr. Smita, Cr. Richa, Cr. Shweta Goenka , Cr. Rinki and Cr. Leena collected all the drawing sheets and started checking them. In the meanwhile, Tr. Vinamra, Tr. Siddharth, Tr. Sahil, Tr. Umang, Tr. Umang sah, NHT Anjan , Sql. Anurag distributed goodie bags to all the kids containing sweets, chocolates, biscuits etc.

 All the papers were checked and prizes were ready. There was excitement and curiosity in the eyes of kids. The excitement grew when we welcomed yaps (children of tablers or square legs) from Denmark and Germany.

Sql. Prashant Gupta , Piyush Agarwal, Anoop Agarwal and Cr. Preeti with twinkler Pranvi hosted them and then brought them to Versatile School to witness the beautiful morning of freedom.

IPC Tr. Vinamra and Chairperson Cr. Tanushree shared their kind words with the kids and distributed prizes to all the winners. Kids were asked to disperse after that.

We were all exhausted and tired.

Ek chai to banti hai yaar..

Circlers opened their boxes of home- made snacks . There were samosas , idlis, sandwiches, cakes , chips and some cool gup-shup over hot masala chai. That truly reminded us of our school days . Sandwiches were truly in demand and we learnt the recipe from Cr. Parul while sipping our hot cup of tea.

We thanked school management and staff for cooperating with us and left for the freedom drive. Our publicity convener Tr. Sahil and Chairman Tr. Harsh lead the bunch of cars And we drove around the city. The holy city of Varanasi witnessed the freedom drive on the day of Independence

Jai hind

Calcutta (Kolkata) RT 41: Janmashtmi Celebration

Dear Friends,

Following our theme for the year “Live It Up” we planned a Janmashtmi LAPD, Darshan and Fellowship at ISKCON Temple.

The team of 41, Ladies Circle 65 and Twinklers were present along with Prospect Pramod Pachisia and his family. We spent one of the defining moments at the temple with Darshan and Aarti followed by a personal knowledge sharing session by the President of ISKCON, Kolkata on religion, faith and life followed by meditation. He personally attended to the team and the discussions that followed created a special bond between our tablers and the ISKCON team. The sharing of experience by the President as to how and why an IIT graduate with a great corporate career joins ISKCON to serve the society made us understand that true happiness is a state of mind and can only come from loving something that you do.

We followed it up with a special fellowship Prasad at the temple premises wherein more discussions on life and teachings continued and engrossed tablers and circlers.

It was one of a kind LAPD that left us wanting more. The Prasad was sumptuous as the family of 41 enjoying together was bliss in itself.

Vizag RT 77: Independence Day activities

This year , like we do every year for independence day at VRT 77 . The tablers were divided into 3 different teams and we  visited the  3 schools for Independence Day celebrations. Independence Day celebrations are always special at VRT-77. The 68th independence day was no exception . The whole day of events was well planned in advance prior to the 15th of August.

All the three RTI schools of VRT-77 were covered, the VBV( Vasanth Balla Vidyodaya) school, the Karasa municipal school and the Marikvalasa School. A total of 600 students in the three schools and staff were greeted and the Independence Day messages were conveyed after formal flag hoisting at all the three schools. The children and staff at all three schools greeted us with warmth,march past, patriotic songs and dances.

All the 600 children were given sweets, stationery kits and crayons . A  special thanks to  Tr. Ramayya , Tr. Adarsh , Tr. Inder and Tr. Sandeep Reddy Tadi for their contributions  . The Chairman Tr. Rajesh addressed the school children with an inspiring speech that motivated them .

The smiles on the faces of the children were something to see…priceless!!!

By 10 AM all of us assembled at Hotel Daspalla for a lovely breakfast and some amazing bonding over a fellowship. Post breakfast , we visited the blind school at Rushikonda where we distributed sweet packets to the students there . Apart from the sweets distribution we also got to witness a demonstration of how to write in Braille on Braille slates . The teacher wrote out a word and called out a student and asked him to find out what he had written and he answered with precision . It was absolutely amazing to see how smart these kids are . All in all , we finished the service with feelings of immense joy and satisfaction .
