The city that never sleeps…..The commercial capital of the country …..The city of Mumbai & an integral part of city's
“hulchul” –The Rotaract District 3140. It has been nearly 2 decades of Rotaract/Rotary journey for me and I can proudly say
that the district that laid my foundation to be the DRR is still going strong with its flag flying high.
What amazes me the most is that each year I see even more action & passion than ever before - I am truly proud and feel
very privileged to be associated with one of the biggest districts of Rotary International.
Success means different to different people – As I retrospect into the past, it is indeed difficult to write in few words for the
immense experience that I have seen being created out of this “Open Management School”. I strongly believe that
Rotaractors of R. I. District 3140 are like a team of Corporate Strategy Managers destined to set a trend of thoughts, ideas
and commitment. For someone who lived by the theme “Rotaract Movement – The Responsible Youth” nearly 20 years
back, successful initiatives like World Responsible Youth (WRY) make me feel very proud.
I would like to thank each and every Rotaractor of R. I. District 3140 for their fantabulous performance and commitment – To
me YOU are a symbol for the dignity of The Responsible Youth and a contributor to the destiny of Rotaract Movement.
As I retrospect, I endorse my favorite message to Rotaract movement that says “Standards are set by Norms - There is
always a better way to do it” - This is the ultimate “mindset” that I look forward from every “resource” of this great movement
and YOU have proved it time an again.
Last but not the least, always remember – Good, Better, Best – Never let it rest – Till Good turns Better and the Better
becomes THE BEST.

the best way, he said, 'Rotaract is a buffet, you go, see, pick-up and take back what you like' and I think nothing
explains Rotaract better than this line. We have various avenues, so many projects and plenty of Rotaractors, let's
make sure that we make the right choice and end up picking up and learning what we like. Remember, in the process
I am sure not only the coming six months, but also the coming many years, Rotaract is going to be much brighter and

DRR (N) Speaks
Warm Rotaract Greetings!!!
I have shared my thoughts in various capacities at different forums. But this has to be special, as I am writing
this as DRR 2013-14.
Rotaract entered my life in the year 2002. In my decade long journey as a rotaractor, I have witnessed an
amazing thing, anyone and everyone, associated with this tag, has grown in some way or the other and hence
I believe “Rotaract Personifies Growth”. Look at yourselves or your club and you will know what I mean.
Rotaract movement has pushed each one of us towards constant selfless actions which lend us to acquire a
great skill set. And that’s the reason why I stayed back in the movement because I still believe that this
incredible movement has great things to offer!!!!!
The Past District leaders have set the foundation for a unified District and we must continue to build upon this
foundation. To do so, let us first recognize that District 3140 is ours; a District comprises clubs which cannot
function without members such as you. Therefore I urge you to be the best you can be as a Rotaractor.
Lastly on behalf of Vinit & Naseem, I promise you that we are just about to begin a great journey.
