Some are for ever grumpy and some always sport a smile. Have you ever wondered what could be the secret of people who always smile? Well some people have a natural talent to keep themselves happy. Whatever may be the situation they are bright and positive and see the sunny side of things. Even though all of us are not born with such optimism it is definitely possible to keep yourselves happy if you make up your mind. To do so first of all we should shun all our complexes and stop being judgemental about people and circumstances .We should stop associating things i.e. now that this is happened this is going to follow [and usually we imagine the worst]. Let things and people around us not disturb our inner peace and happiness. This can only be possible if we make up our mind and take a firm decision to keep ourselves and people around us happy. On the occasion of GANESH CHATURTHI let us the Rotary family pray to lord GANESHA to bless us and our families unlimited happiness and we in turn buildabettersociety. –Ann.Vyjayanthi B e H a p p y ! ! !
  3. 3. 'Rotary Amaravani' Award 2013 The tradition of identifying excellence in academia continuedonWednesdayatRotary Midtown.The'Amaravani– 2013” was awarded to Prof.N.S.Taranath. The awarded was presented by veteran PDG Rtn.Vasudevamurthy in the presence of AG Rtn.M.N.Bheemesh and a large gathering including press & media. The award is instituted by Rtn.Bheemesh's family and has a legacy of presenting the award to eminent personalities. In his short & crisp address, Acharya Devo Bhava – Teachers' Day Celebrated At RMA It is indeed nostalgic for each one of us to remember the contributions of our dear teachers in shaping our lives and what better day can we think of to express our gratitude to all those teachers who have imparted the right values in our lives than observing Teachers' day. September 5th, this year too was a special day at RMA School as both Rotary and Innerwheel Midtown joined hands to celebrate Teachers' Day amidst students, Rotarians and IW members. The IW programme started with a fashion show by RMA teachers depicting the Costumes of India which was well received by the audience especially the students who cheered their teachers when they walked the ramp. Principal was in all sport with a Lambani dress and walked the ramp to the applause of her students. Teachers' enthusiasm and sportiveness was well appreciated by everyone. 3 teachers were adjudged winners by the jury comprising of Mrs. Sudha Vishwanath, Mrs. Sheela Urs and Mrs. Pushpa Gangesh. Background music to this was provided by our tech-savvy Mrs.Lavanya Srinivasan. Prizes were distributed to the winners. IW on this occasion also honoured Ms.Manasa, a teacher working at Nireekshe special school. IW president Mrs.Uma Vivek and Secretary Mrs.Geetha Krishna did the felicitation. Also Mrs. Kajal of RMA was the recipient of the cash award instituted by Mrs.Roopa Yadav. Mrs. AnupamaRavindranathdidthehonours. It was time now for Rotary Midtown to take over the proceedings. President Bhanuchandran welcomed the gathering. Invocation was sung by Mrs. Sharada. Mr.Niranjan Vanalli, professor in the Journalism department and Director CPDPS, Mysore University was the chief guest who was introduced by Secretary Dr.Prahlad. Mr.Niranjan addressed the teachers in style by giving a pep talk to his colleagues quoting from his own personal experiences. He raised a question to the audience as to how many of us would like our children to become teachers when we want our own children to be tutored by good teachers. He stressed the fact that a teacher who can bring a smile on their students' faces and who is more understanding would be considered a good teacher. Teaching should bring in more self satisfaction than the monetary benefit as they are the role models who are responsible for shaping the future citizens of a country. It was surely an inspiring talk which was well taken by everyone present. It was followed by cake cutting by the senior students of the school and honouring of the teachers by President Bhanu and Mr.Niranjan. Rotary midtown foundation also honored the teachers with a token gift of appreciation.VoteofThankswasbythePrincipalMrs. Dr. Vanitha Bhat. Sumptuous lunch for all was served at the end.

Prabha Prahlad Chief guest for the day Rtn.Vasudevamurthy lauded the achievements of Prof. Tarnath and recalled the yesteryears. Later Prof. Taranath shared his feelings with the audience, his speech was replete with humbleness & gratitude.
