    • We make that difference... W hile we walk down the street, we find millions passing by, all busy in their own little world. From business man to beggar busy earning their bread, while some enjoying whatever little time left from their busy schedule either alone or with their near and dear ones and finally some standing leaning on a pole, either with their arms locked and idly tapping their feet with a look that they have nothing more to do in life. Mostly, to add to their own agony and others‟ with a cloud of cigarette smoke engulfing them or a can of coke slowly draining their lives out.TM Sameer Hassan Moosa ACS, ALB Have we ever thought how these rotting live pictures or idols onArea-18 Governor & every walk of our life are slowly taking the shape of a pool of stagnatedImmediate Past Asst. Div. E matter? A pool with nothing but frustration, loss, disgust and disrespectGovernor Education & Training for oneself or others A beggar on street could be given enough money for a day or a life time. But at the end, we will stillfind him back on the same street when the money gets over. We know how many educated and well quali-fied people commit suicide due to frustration of being unable to generate anything at all out of what theyhave learned. Spiritual desires changes in people on every new corner of the street. So if some think charity in kind and cash can change lives. Yes it can but could we say that is enough? If some say that a trimmed system of education can change lives. Yes that too is right, yet to which or what extend? Turn to spirituality and world will change… God alone knows if that is true? The truth remains that, we just pull on with our lives, without truly asking ourselves how we canmake a difference to our lives and others. Frankly speaking, have we ever thought of what could bring the actual light of hope, a drizzle offreshness and stream of respect in our life and around us? My answer would be that the only factor which changes our view towards ourselves and the world isour attitude. And Toastmasters could proudly claim that we make and mould attitudes. We make our members and those watching us with restrain feel that, the development of communi-cation skills on a regular basis, can improve a person‟s confidence and view towards life with a new per-spective every day. In parallel developing their leadership skills through a learn-by-doing pattern whichhas been well experimented and proved as guaranteed success, inflates their competitiveness and putsthem on top of the rest of the world. Thus they see that, for what they have been striving throughout their lives are met through beingpart of an esteemed body or fraternity, which has not only raised their self esteem, a ladder to climb uptheir dreams, a platform to talk out their hearts, but also an attitude to serve the community by becominga catalyst for change in oneself and others around them. Toastmasters have an incredible history of changing lives of around 250000 peo-ple in around 90 countries around the globe, who can now undoubtedly claim that“We make a difference”. Living is not mere surviving; but life becomes meaninglesswhen we are not able to lead life as better human beings. Same air we breath, same water we drink, same earth on which we walk, sameblood in veins and same matter in our skull,,,,, yet WE make that difference. A tallclaim indeed, yet not baseless. a little to think and a lot to do… join us to make the world a better placeCommuniqué | Issue 4 | September 2011 Page 14
