Vizag Round Table 77 hosts unique GUJJU Fellowship

A Sunday afternoon house social . It was simple yet a bit elaborate as well . The best part about home  socials is that the bonding is at its peak and the warmth and love with which we are received gives a personal touch and is the best feeling ever and like every home social Samir and Jayti’s social had all these elements . A home social with a theme makes it innovative and unique as well .

We 77ers along with 41ers of 169 and twinklers  were invited for a G.U.J.J. U themed social to relish the aroma and taste of authentic G.U.J.J .U food . The dress code being a touch of Bandhani or a combination of red and white .

There was a lot of chatter going on and lot of leg pulling . There was so much noise that it was at times difficult to talk (haha) That’s how  loud we are and how much of a riot we are as a bunch. The atmosphere was pretty chilled out and as usual we were always joking around .  The twinklers had their own fun too .

With 77ers past and present around , it was the perfect opportunity to catch up after a long time . It was also an opportunity for our recently inducted tablers , their ladies and prospects to get to know the 41ers of 169 a whole lot better . The newbies and prospects were heavily grilled with questions and interviewed .

We had a solid turn out too which made it a whole lot more fun . It looks like Sunday afternoons are a good time to get together.  Many of us were dressed in our colourful best . Quite a few of us came in Red and white while a few took the effort to come dressed in our best version of the ethnic G.U.J.J.U style .

A prize was given out for the best couple which was won by Tr. Shashank and Vanditha . There were  a couple of other highlights and funny moments that afternoon . The major highlight being the food . It was like a Gujju food fiesta   , a gastronomical delight with mouth watering dishes .

Let us take you through the menu shall we ?  Are you ready for this?

Well as soon as we reached the venue for the social , we got to savour the taste of puchka (paani puri) and Khal Muri for starters and Aam Panna for a welcome drink . Then there was Handva and Dhokla which is made from the batter of urad dal and rice . There was thepla which is like roti made from normal wheat flour adding spices to it. There was Undya ka sabji which is quite a lot like a mix veg curry but its speciality is its spices and round bhaji sort of muthdi made up of besan and methi leaves. There was Pakoda khadi made from besan and pakoda made from spinach. For desert there was Shrikhand and gulab jamun . Shrikhand is made up of hung curd and adding sugar ,cardamom and saffron to it …. Is your mouth watering while reading this…. (haha)

Phew ! It was quite a feast as you can see from the elaborate menu and by the end of it everyone was completely stuffed and some of us may have skipped dinner that day. All in all a big thank you to Samir and Jayti for hosting such an awesome social . It was a Sunday afternoon well spent .

Fellowship event by Vizag Round Table 77

Tr .Sandeep’s 40th Birthday Bash

Our very own Tr . Sandeep Chowdary achieved a milestone in tabling terms . It was his 40th birthdayon the 26th March 2019 and needless to say we had to celebrate . He’s had quite a storied career in tabling so far with many feathers in his cap . Those who have seen him in tabling from the very beginning are well aware of his accomplishments .   We happened to have our business meeting on that day and being his special day , he generously came forward to host it .

  This was by far one of those meetings where we had the most fun . It was fun because it was a house meeting and we also had a good turn out . House meetings have always been fun because the atmosphere is quite relaxed and chilled out and also because of warmth that you feel in the presence of a fellow tabler’s home .  We had the presence of our 41ers from club 169 also at this meeting .

 The meeting had many highlights apart from discussions on the regular agenda .  There was a LAPD session conducted by Sq.Leg Aanand Khara which mainly focused on games and  activities . The session opened with a number game wherein tablers would call out numbers at random and if any of the tablers call out the same number at the same time , then the game would restart . This game was mainly about clarity , leadership and direction …. We had to restart the game quite often . The next game was a commonality test where tablers were asked to write down a list of all their favourites and the objective of the game was to guess the name of the tabler based on the list of his favourite things (drink ,food , music , TV Show , relative , colour , pastime , hobby etc )  alternatively tablers would be asked what is so and so’s favourite drink , food , music , TV show etc and we would have to guess what was written on the paper it is based on how well we know the tabler

This was an eye opener for us as many of us would think we know friends well but when we play games like this we realize that we need to know them better and in turn we learn something new about them

After this fun game we had  41er Aanand  and 41er Deepak  conduct a team  building activity called JOIN .  We were divided into teams  where we would be given instructions like “8 ARMS , 7 knees , 1 Rs.5 coin , 1 credit card , one doctor”and as a team we had to be quick  and alert in putting all this together and when we were done . We had to say JOIN . The fun part is to see everyone trying to be the team to finish first and the chaos that ensues (haha) . These three LAPD activities were a major highlight and it was so much fun and we look forward to more such activities during our meetings in the future .

 Another major highlight was the Sargenting act . Tr .Vidhan was the sargent assisted by Sq. Leg Shrawan Somani and Tr. Adarsh Joshi / The act  centered around the birthday boy Tr . Sandeep Chowdary where tablers were asked questions by Sq. Leg Shrawan Somani  about Sandeep and his tabling career .   The act was well conducted . 

We had LMF recognitions handed out to Tr. Gurvansh by Sq. Leg Dharminder Singh Anand ( Novi Bhai ) , Tr. Pradyumna by Sq.leg Kiran cheruku , Tr Sritej by 41er Deepak Menda, Tr . Dr . Varun by 41er Aanand Khara  and Tr . Shaad by 41er Dr . Rakesh .  Tr . Shashank was recognized with a  Star Performer Pin by Chairman Tr . Inder and he was pinned by 41er Aanand khara . 

 

All in all , the meeting went off really well mainly due to active participation of all tablers  . It was meeting full of laughter and a lot of fun .  Twinklers Hardik and Dhruv also actively took part in the games and activities .

 After we closed the meeting we had the cake cutting for Sandeep followed by a sumptuous  meal with delicious dishes which were relished by everyone . A big Thank you to Tr . Sandeep and Sangeeta for hosting us . Looking forward to more fun filled meetings .

Unique Fellowship by Hubli Central Round Table 142

Being loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone gives you courage. “There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.” 😍“The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.”🤩
This is exactly what happened on the evening of Fellowship, the theme “DDLJ”, it was fantastic watching the alluring couple dance the ramp.
Dressed in their nuptial bonding, felt it was dreams coming true!!!!
Happy & blushing faces made the evening soaked in romance. The multicoloured moods of love spread it’s satin wings.
It was satisfying to see that everyone was enjoying the party.
The breathtaking moment of the evening was exchange of garlands, where the time took them back to their wedding memories.
Happy moments relieved!!!
The music played the Cupid & yummy dinner followed.
Let this love always stay!!

Lucknow Mavericks Round Table 255 celebrate Republic Day at there FTE School

Republic Day Fun – a day well spent

“How’s the JOSH”?

“High Sir!!”

Its true. LMRT 255 family is always charged up with JOSH. Be it for projects, community service or fellowship. The national initiative of Fellowship week gave us the chance and opportunity to work closer with each other and make the bonds of friendship stronger. In the end that is what you earn for life – Friends.

This Republic Day we decided to do something fresh and new. The weather being on our side our eventful day began with the flag hoisting ceremony at our FTE School in Sonari Gaon. The love, warmth and welcome received from the kids takes away your tiredness and stress. Those smiling faces looking forward to impress you, are the most honest expressions one has witnessed.

Post flag hoisting the children left no stone unturned to outperform each other in the races, theater performance and group choir. Their will and determination coupled perfectly with the republic day vibe.

After bidding good bye to the school staff and students it was time to catch up with the LMRT 255 family and twinklers for our picnic fellowship at Ansals Golf City – “Picnic on the Greens”. The openness gave the twinklers a chance to run around, play catch & Frisbee and most importantly enjoy to the fullest.

In my opinion the high point of the picnic was the tablers fighting with the twinklers for batting. The beauty of this fellowship was that we all became kids jumping & diving for the cricket ball and Frisbee alike.

With high spirits & rejuvenated energy we all decided to make it an annual feature of our table. The memories we make with our family are everything and that day we did take back many new ones.

Fellowships & Projects in Mangalore during visit of Round Table India President.

Started my Area 13 visit from the very beautiful city of Managalore. All the effort of going to any place becomes insignificant when you have friends welcoming you with a smile.

A wonderdul Joint fellowship by RT 115 & RT 190 at G (pub) was just a perfect way to start the visit. Chairman RT 115 Haron and Nandita thanks a lot for the very comfortable home hosting. It was a pleasure to know you both.

Next day it was the perfect way to start the day with school visits of RT 115 and 190.
Its only when you visit you know what beautiful work is happening.
The whole school painted like a train was such a beautiful sight.
A wonderful concept of having kitchen gardens in FTE schools is being done.
Putting up commercial signage’s at schools located at highways is again one unique initiative. It does get in very useful funds for FTE and Non FTE activities in a sustained manner.
The smart classrooms built are again top class. Very aptly called “Experience Education”.

And have to mention the amazing hospitality of all these guys. Can’t forget any manglorian dishes that i had in those 24 hours. Great being with all of you.
