  • 1. swatantra The Spirit of Independence 15th Aug 2011 Ductus Exemplo Independence is a way of life which involves the spirit of being able to make decisions for oneself. Independence has different connotations for different people. But, in our own small ways, we try to imbibe the spirit of independence in whatever we do.A JOINT NEWSLETTER OF ROTARACT CLUB OF India achieved its independence on 15th August 1947 from centuries of colonial LOYOLA COMMUNITY rule. Independence in India was achieved predominantly through non-violent Sponsored by struggle by Mahatma Gandhi. Then, independence meant freedom on non- Rotary Club of Chennai Sun City R.I. District 3230 dependence on external bodies/agencies. In Sanskrit it translated to ‘Swatantrata’. The theme of this joint bulletin is to imbibe the spirit of independent thoughts and ROTARACT CLUB OF convert them into concrete actions. COLOMBO WEST Sponsored by Rotary Club of Colombo West Rotary and Rotaract are organisations which are working day in and day out to help R.I. District 3220 us achieve fruits of our independence. Each of our countries has had a history of ROTARACT CLUB OF struggle until it has realised true emancipation of the masses. India got it 64 years HIMALAYA PATAN ago, a few nations got it later and many more are still at the verge of achieving Sponsored by Rotary Club of Himalaya Patan independence. The whole Indian Subcontinent has a long history of struggle for R.I. District 3292 independence. But, today we are able to reap the benefits of the struggles of our fore fathers. Rotary strives hard within countries to make sure that the countries ROTARACT CLUB OF benefit from the contribution and efforts of people within their nations, so that the LATUR Sponsored by true spirit of independence is achieved particularly through eradication of Polio. Rotary Club of Latur R.I. District 3132 In our own small ways, we observe that independence is a natural quality innate in ROTARACT CLUB OF human beings. Observe a toddler who has started learning to walk. If you go near METROPOLITAN DHAKA and try to provide assistance, the child pushes the helping hand away and tries to Sponsored byRotary Club of Metorpolitan Dhaka walk on its own. Our day-to-day lives are filled with such examples. We can thus R.I. District 3280 draw to a conclusion that the spirit of self-reliance and determination is a natural Rtr. Pres. Aditya Mohan attribute of mankind. RC Loyola Community Rtr. Pres.Neluni Karunaratne RC Colombo West We must thus ensure that we imbibe, preserve and encourage this spirit of Rtr. Pres. Suman Awale independent thought. Let us collectively reach within our countries and community RC Himalaya Patan and embrace humanity for the benefit of all. Rtr. Pres. Nilesh N. Jaju RC Latur Rtr.

District 3230 ‘Celebrating Differences’ I hope that this bulletin helps in enjoying the differences we share. Here’s hoping that initiatives like this continue and help us to improve Rotaraction across Rtr. Pres. Aditya Mohan borders. RC Loyola Community Yours in Rotaract!!!

As Rotaractors, let us make a conscious effort to carry Rotaract wherever we may go. Rotary is depending on us, theRotaractors, to continue flying the flag of Rotary high.
