Rtn.Tejinder Singh, District Chairperson RBB Committee, welcomed the audience and charmed everyone with her zeal and enthusiasm.

  8. 8. Page 8 EDITORIAL Just Jotting “Get your motor running, Head out on the highway… Looking for adventure, And whatever comes your way…” And so we have begun with another new and much- awaited Rotaract year. A young and enthusiastic DAC team led by Rtr. Manik Gupta who believes in “Learning through Fellowship”. As all of us settle into our new roles, let us take a moment to ponder on the year past. The thoughts and ideas that transformed into actions. The ones that couldn’t and require still more efforts to materialize. Let Rtr.Jyoti Bhatt District Editor 2010-11 us delve into a Rotaractor’s reverie and visualize Rotaract as we wish it to be, at the epitome , better than the best. “Service Before Self” is our motto and that is what is required from all of us to take Rotaract District 3010 to newer heights. Comic Corner Any mountain can be conquered if we work together. Nothing is impossible if we unite our efforts to achieve it. We ought to believe that we are one of the leaves of a tree that is District 3010. We cannot live without the others, the tree. Rotaract year 2010-11 is the year of fellowship. It is a time to make to go out and make friends. We at the DAC hope to see a host of inter-club and inter-district events this time round. Why confine the good work ! The Installation ceremony and the Rotary Blood Bank visit were brilliant kickstarts. I’m overwhelmed to see the participation from all of you. Hope we can continue with the same enthusiasm all year long. Here’s to spreading the “MADness”. Afterall we’re Making A Difference! Rtr.Jyoti Bhatt District Editor 2010-11 The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible.
