I had heard a lot from my brother Tr. Nikhil, a very passionate tabler, of CSRT 17 about the beautiful world of tabling and had seen him enjoying Tabling. Going to be a part of Sitapur Round Table, I was looking forward to Tabling and witnessed a tremendous amount of positive energy in our Table during the first year. On behalf of my table, I would like to share the Facet which became our forte in the 1st year of Tabling.
SRT 318 was Chartered on 7th April, 2018 and before that we had already attended the Area 8 AGM of 2017 and participated in JAFFA, 2018.Fellowship was on in full swing. During fellowship we realized one of the most important facets of Tabling and one of its Aim and Objectives is EXTENSION.
Being in touch with the stalwarts of Tabling, we understood that more emphasis of RTI for the Extension facet is in a new Tabling Centre being created for the simple reason that a whole new demographic area will be touched.
Our passionate Charter Chairman, Tr. Ashish Kr. Singhania along with head board and our two dynamic and dedicated extension conveners, Tr. Dhruv Bhojwani and Tr. Kunal Anand started the planning of extension for 2018-19.
No one could even wildly guess what a Masterstroke it will be!
Unbelievable but its true that SRT 318 has been part of 4 extensions in 1 Tabling year.
Tables sponsored are Mirzapur Round Table 336, Rudrapur Round Table 335, Jhansi Round Table and the icing on the cake was Round Table Perth 4 which is an International Table.
MRT 336 was sponsored alone by SRT 318 while other extensions were done jointly with other tables. The International extension was done jointly by Round Table India(3 tables) and Round Table Nepal.

One of a Kind Experience
It was an amazing journey with so much of travelling and fellowship. In first year, we travelled for around 21 contact meets, 3 Super Inauguration’s and 2 Grand Charter’s across the length and breadth of Uttar Pradesh; all in different directions of Sitapur.
26 trips of around 700 km each totaling 18,200 km approximately was travelled with required quorum just for external extension of new tabling centres apart from attending every National and Area events.
Indeed, a unique achievement to add 4 new tabling centres in the very first year.
An amazing experience for all the passionate Tablers of SRT 318; which has also created a Bonding for Lifetime amongst them.
Thank you Round Table India.
