GO GREEN PROJECT – INSTALLATION OF SOLAR PANEL SYSTEM AND PLANTATION OF SAPLINGS
Ahmedabad Round Table – 40 and Ahmedabad Ladies Circle – 64 had undertaken the Maiden Project of Suryajyoti under the leadership of National President Manpreet Raja and Prachi Agarwal for the year 2016-17 at Andh Apang Kalyan Kendra an FTE School adopted by Ahmedabad Round Table – 40 and Ahmedabad Ladies Circle – 64.
We have installed a 4 KVA Solar On Grid Panel System at the school. With this initiative, the school shall be saving on an Average 16 units per day which will give them an effective saving of Rs. 50,000/- per annum. Also, with solar installation on an average emission of Carbon-dioxide will be reduced to 6000 Kgs. per annum which will save close to 270 trees for the entire year. Even, 4000 Kgs. of Coal will be less used and save the atmosphere and eco-system ultimately helping Mother Earth.
Apart from the Go Green Advantage, we had the following 2 advantages for executing the project:
a) The First Advantage is that it was a small tribute to our dear friend and Fellow Tabler Utkarsh Jani who always believed in giving something back to the society in most eco-friendly manner.
b) The Second Advantage was that when I was taking over as a Chairman of Ahmedabad Round Table – 40, it was the message given to me by the National President Manpreet Raja that Ahmedabad Round Table – 40 is amongst one of the Top 20 Tables whom he wants to execute the Suryajyoti Project and we are happy to do it first in entire India for year 2016-17.
At the time of the Project, we had an advantage of listening the wonderful speech given by National President Manpreet Raja Prachi Agarwal, Area Chairman Sumit and Area Chairperson Smita. They were instrumental in cutting the Ribbon at the Project and inaugurating the Solar Panels for the school.
We also planted 100 Saplings which was the part of our Go Green Initiative. All in all a very satisfying project towards contributing something back to the Society.
Lastly, I am happy to share that the National President Manpreet Raja recognised me as the President Star for Quarter 1 of the Year 2016-17.
Proud to be a Tabler!!!
Thanks and Regards

Indians celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi with great fervor & delight. It was a unique experience for our little Twinklers as they were taught the making of Ganesha Idols from Clay & Mud, at the Awareness Event organised by HT Tr.Raghavendra at his residence on Sep 3rd, which was mastered by Artist Jayraj. All the assembled Twinklers were enthusiastic when they were given clay, toothpicks & water. Master Jayraj unlocked the hidden talent in kids by providing simplified solutions in making a clay idol. He emphasised upon not using the non degradable materials like POP, Chemical Paints & Colours. Kids were excited when they moulded the clay to form a Ganapathi. They adorned the idol with a necklace that too made up of clay, made intricate desings over it with a toothpick. Twinklers Joy was its peak when Eco Friendly Ganapathi Idols were ready.
Later all the Twinklers were served with delicious food & juice.
Such programs go a long way in promoting the sense of Caring the Nature. Twinklers gifted us the Idols that we would always love to receive. Their wish was taken as their command when they insisted upon that their idols should be worshipped.
Tablers & Circlers coordinated the program.
Special Thanks to all the Twinklers & to HT Tr.Raghavendra for organising the oriental program.

Hospet Round Table 231
II PRAKRUTHI DEVO BHAVA II
Hospet Round Table celebrated our Heritage through a Fund Raiser by promoting Eco Friendly Clay Ganapathi Idols – The Pot Bellied & Elephant Faced God, on the eve of Ganesha Festival, which was on Sep 5th. These idols were truly fit to be worshipped as these were prepared from the components of the Divine Nature – clay, mud, etc, without using non degradable materials like POP ( Plaster of Paris ) and chemical paints & colours. In addition to this, more stress was given to use of natural flowers or other organic materials for decoration, as these will be easily decomposed. As a part of Go Green Initiation, the buyers were given free vegetable seeds.
Prior to Ganesha Festival, these idols were placed at leading counters like M/S Prabhat General Stores, M/S Arya Super Market, M/S R.S.Department for sale & the price was fixed Rs.250 per idol. Promo regarding Eco Friendly Ganapathi were aired in all the local channels. Many Tables came forward to buy idols. HRT Team never stopped their effort till all the idols were liquidated.
AIM OF HRT : SAVE WATER FROM BEING POLLUTED
PURPOSE : REDUCE ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE
EFFECT : THE WHOLE OF HOSPET WERE INFLUENCED WITH THIS GO GREEN FUND INITIATION
IDOLS SOLD : 140 NOS
REVENUE : Rs.13740
PUBLICITY : ALL TIME HIGH
Special Thanks to the HRT Team!
HRT Team Rocks!

GO GREEN INITIATIVE
The Flagship initiative of Round Table India –Go Greenhas been taken up by the BVRT-152 in a unique way. It is led by none other than the Chairman himself Dr. Adarsh. N
Tr Dr.Adarsh N, inspite of being a professor, has set a practical example by going to the Dental College hospital on his bicycle every day. It literally translates to “Preach what you Do”
Looking at the statistics, he rides nearly 25km a day thereby saving atleast 2 litres of Diesel every day.
This amounts to saving – 60 litres a month & Atleast a couple of tonnes of CO2, NO & lead emissions.
Inspired by him, I have overcome the hesitation and started to ride my bicycle to work place.
This is definitely inspiring more members and elite of the Ballari City Cycling Club.
Yours In Tabling
