  3. 3. Sakhyã – a friendship meet Sakhya a friendship meet for ISO s of 40 Inner Wheel clubs was hosted by IW Midtown. An excellent idea, brain child of Dist. ISO Anuradha Nandakumar brought out all our hidden strengths in organizing the event. Meticulous planning, attention paid to detail in planning by Anoo and thorough execution by our members was a good combination to take the event forward. The flavour was ALL MYSORE, Mysore silk saree , Mysore Mallige to yummy Mysorepak and not to forget Mysore hurigalu in the goody bag for the guests. Lively voices of MCs Lavanya and Prabha ably supported back stage by Sudha and Vimala and Savitha's group ran the event like clock work. Great Menu planned and supervised by Vyjayanthi was the toast of the event. Sincere thanks to Rtn.D.Srinivasan for all his designing. -Anoo & Anu This is how Dist. ISO narrates the eventOn January 10th, 2014, Inner Wheel Mysore Midtown organized Inter District ISO Meet at Dhwanya Loka, Mysore. Presidents/acting Presidents and ISOs/acting ISOs from 14 Inner Wheel Clubs (IWCs) of our District 318 gathered there alongwith District Officers, Past District Chairmen and host Club members. IWC Mysore Midtown had decided to host ISO meet almost 8 months ago, when District ISO was chosen from Mysore Midtown, after the conference in 2012. The preparations were going on since almost a month after the date was decided. It was a much anticipated day, as for the first time after 10 years, a District event was being hosted by Mysore Midtown. Being the 90th International Inner Wheel Day, members were all excited to meet and exchange goodwill & friendship. Various competitions and a pageant were held. Firstly, District ISO studied 40 IWCs and gave merits for their participation in various competitions and in events such as Assembly, Rally, Conference held by the District, since 6 months since their term began. On the day, there were 13 participants who displayed their club flag, club bulletin, club roster and also a hand-made New Year Card, of which the best in each category was adjudged by 3 Past District Chairmen, playing judges who observed every detail.] The pageant started with Round 1- 'Me&My Club', when every participant had to introduce oneself and one's IWC in most creative way. Eleven participants were chosen for Round 2- 'Rapid Fire', when each one was asked to pick a quiz chit and answer the general knowledge question immediately. Five were selected for next rounds. Round 3-'Mummy Magic', they were given the task of preparing their daughter to go to school by tying hair, donning the uniform, packing lunch, packing books into the satchel handing over everything and rushing the daughter to school. For daughter's role, thanks to Rotary Midtown Academy, students were brought from their school. Finally Round 4-'Pick-Write-Speak', the five finalists were made to sit, pick an Inner Wheel Theme chit and write for 2 minutes about the theme. Three judges for the pageant were invited from VLCC, who adjudged winner, 1st runner-up, 2nd runnerup, best designer wear, best designer footwear, best designer jewellery and best hair-style. Trophies and Prizes were given away by District Chairman, PDCs and district officers. The hosts were in the traditional attire of Mysore-Mysore Silk sari & jasmine. The invitees were welcomed with hot coffee/tea and snacks. After the event, each one was served with Bale-yeleoota, the traditional lunch of Mysore; the taste still lingers on. The audience enjoyed the random play during the pageant winning lot of surprise gifts. On the whole, the event brought lot of mirth and zeal in the members, bothparticipating invitees and hosting members of IWC Mysore Midtown. An official touch outlined with fun and creativity was SAKHYA!

A new 3D printer concept uses quick-drying cement to print a two-story, 2500 square foot home in less than 24 hours. The printer, designed by Professor Behrokh Khoshnevis, is equipped with two crane-shaped arms supporting the crossbeam that contains the printhead. The huge device is sent atop a set of tracks and would be able to work on all areas of the house at the same time. The process would be mostly automated, although the foundation, window head jams and a metal ceiling between floors would need to be completed by construction crews.
