Twinklers of Ahmedabad RT 40 and LC 64 Celebrate Rakshabandhan

ART-40 and ALC-64 had planned Twinklers Rakhi Event wherein they would be one of the source to bring smile and happiness to the under privileged kids.

The Twinkler boy would get a Rakhi tied from an under privileged girl (may be Sweepers, maids’ or Cleaners’ daughter or sister) and a Twinkler girl would tie Rakhi to the under privileged boy in the same fashion.

We had also decided to distribute Sweets and Gifts to the under privileged kids. It will bring smile on their faces and even an understanding to our Twinklers “Joy of Giving”.

Our Table would felicitate the Twinklers who have done this activity by giving them some gift as a token of appreciation from our end.

With such activities we can make them understand the importance of Good Living and a social responsibility towards the society.

Thank You Twinkler Mahir, Miraya, Kashui and Dhriti for helping us in celebrating this Rakhi event better.

CSRT 17 funds Abhijit Saha’s Dream of Higher Education

Every day we dream. And every day is a relentless struggle as we pursue these dreams from moment to moment, caught in the whirlpool of our daily existence, oblivious of people or events around us except those that concern ourselves. However man is a social animal and everyone has or should have some social responsibility to bear.

For instance how many of us really think twice about young people who have dreams too but not the means to get anywhere near them! Identified by Anant Education, Abhijit Saha from remote Dinhata in Coochbehar district is a fine example. The young boy passed his intermediate board exams with 75% plus but had nowhere to go. Reason – sheer poverty that had struck his family. Just when all hope seemed lost, a ray of hope promised the much needed opportunity to fulfil his dream.

It was when Inspiria Knowledge Campus stepped in when no one really cared. Inspiria’s WINGS Scholarship programme (in association with Calcutta South Round Table 17 a part of Round Table India), was on the lookout for disadvantaged young students who needed support and encouragement. Abhijit truly deserved the full merit scholarship and Inspiria Knowledge Campus admitted him to the BCA course this academic session. A happy Abhijit had no words to thank Inspiria for the scholarship which couldn’t have come at a better time.The cost of this community service is Rs 2.5 Lacs

It is our hope that Abhijit will make the best use of this opportunity and emerge as a successful computer science professional, an outcome Inspiria looks sincerely forward too.

In fact this is what our WINGS Scholarship is all about! After all its is Inspiria’s aim (and responsibility too) to ensure that everyone, including those whose fate may be a triple unlucky than most of us, get a complete all round education that makes our graduates employable!

Providing education to all is not just a social responsibility. At Inspiria it is our DREAM and to complete the dream into reality the support is from  Calcutta South Round Table 17.

Happenings @ CSRT 106 / Charter Day, I-Day, Fellowships

The fag end of summer and the prime of summer showers brings about many a reasons for celebrations. The Calcutta Sterling Round Table 106 (CSRT-106) too had many such reasons to come together and celebrate them. The first Sunday of August brings about the spirit of camaraderie, and it was just the fitting occasion for all the Tablers to get together. We met at the Bengal Rowing Club for breakfast which proved to be the perfect way to begin Friendship Day. In a week or so, a hundred and twenty eight odd crore Indians celebrated Her 70th Independence Day from the British crown. We, at CSRT-106, basked in the patriotism and enhanced it a notch by watching ‘Rustom’ followed by a fellowship at the much famed Cafe Mezzuna. A very, rather the most, important day for us at Table was our Charter Day which falls on the 17th day of August every year. We took it upon us to positively affect the lives of 65 elderly people who spend their days at an aged care centre, St. Catherine’s Old Age Home. Eighteen volunteers came together to distribute adult diapers, Horlicks, room fresheners, cleaning materials and biscuits. This event was attended by our Area Chairman Tr. Sandeep Harbhajanka, and Tr. Harmeet Singh Sethi (IPC). The Table then let their hair down on the night of the 26th Charter Day by a fellowship event at Desi Lane. It’s been an exceptional August so far for all of us here at CSRT-106, and we hope that this continues on just as the Fall begins.
