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.

Inter area Fellowship organised by Area 12 of Round Table India

Jaffa Trials & Unending Fellowship

To prepare for the upcoming biggest national fellowship event of RTI ~ Jaffa 2019, Area 12 decided to have trials so that cricket enthusiasts can audition their skills for selection in the team.

Hence, a plan was envisaged to combine this with the annual “Friendship Cup” with Area 11 at Udaipur, wherein both Area’s play friendly matches in the loving memory of our beloved “Utkarsh Jani” & also henceforth our inspiration “Vasu Devan Harsh”.

It started with Jaipur blokes ~ Suri, Jaipuria, Himmatramka, Seth ji, IPAC AW & Jaffa Convener JB (names as they are better known) undertaking a road-trip to Udaipur on Friday 21st with highway-lunch fellowship at Ajmer where PB also joined in.

One Team One Dream of Udaipur (Tilak, Pratul, Deepesh, GK, AFC Shashank 1, Rahul bhai etc.) hosted the visiting tablers to wine & dine, which was followed by poker session till wee hours.

Friends from Jodhpur (Mridul, Deepak, AFC Shashank 2, Vipul, Sumit, Rishabh & Saurabh) and AC VJ along with Sumit also drove in from Kota on 22nd Saturday morning and everyone assembled (also joined by Deepak S, DBsa, Hussy, Ankit S, Bitsa etc.) for net sessions at Shikar Bagh Cricket Ground.

Meanwhile our friends from Area 11 had also reached, which was followed by cricket matches, with both sides pulling out fun banters upon each other with their commentary.

All said & done, this was meant to be a big fellowship get-together & as it turned out, everyone gathered at Hari Pratap Retreat for amazing fellowship with yum food, chilly winds & bonfire.

Jaipur blokes almost managed to miss their overnight train as they were allowed to leave the venue with only 10 mins to spare. Meanwhile more poker sessions continued till early morning at Udaipur, after which Jodhpur guys drove back on Sunday 23rd.

It turned out be a huge inter & intra-area fellowship event & one that shall be cherished.

This year we plan to take with *Love from Poona RT 15 International. Our plan is to visit 4-6 International tabling centers close to India.

Fellowship Party: Best practice for bonding

Members of Vizag Round Table 77 celebrate Festival of Lights.

Diwali , the festival of lights not necessarily the festival of crackers was around the corner . A time of togetherness where family and friends who are like family meet up to celebrate and rejoice over some fun and frolic .

The 77ers along with ladies and kids got into the festive mood to celebrate Diwali at White house on the  5th of November . It was a pre Diwali celebration where almost everyone were dressed in ethnic wear in true festive spirit . The fellowship team had planned a memorable evening for us all with which included something for everyone .  The hall of white house had mattresses and rollers laid out  so that we could just unwind and chillout while we waited for everyone to arrive . There was already some music playing to make the atmosphere lively . `

There were  snacks , desserts, ice cream  and some fun games planned for everyone .  The evening started with some chatting and everyone greeting each other and taking pictures as everyone were dressed in their colourful best . Then , we   wasted little time attacking all munchies laid out on the table . As more people started coming in , we played a couple of rounds of tambola . It was very entertaining. Some of us were extremely lucky , others maybe not so much but I’m sure they still had fun . The winners won a hefty cash prize at the end of all the games . After tambola there were some familiar Diwali associated games played  while the rest of us who didn’t play were quite content just chit chatting and watching the game .

We cut a cake to bring in some more Diwali festive cheer . It was a fun night with a lot of shenanigans , laughter and masti which lasted until post midnight. Kudos to the fellowship team for this wonderful fellowship and special thanks to Tr . Adsarsh for giving us white house and big shout out to all those who came and made it a fellowship to remember .
