  2. 2. 4 WAY TEST - Unique Midtown way!!! In my two years of Rotary , I have seen Rotarians emphasizing of 4 way testanditsimportance,but@EHACK-Rtn.Raghu&ChandrikaMamitried to co-relate 4 WAY TEST with every aspect / every situation of our life . The examples of advertisement of Fair & Lovely , Situation in Uttarakhand and many other real life situation . These questions made all the participants in Ehack to get involved and interact, as these situations were real and they would have to deal with them on daily basis. The students were given a new angle to think about, Raghu Mama and Chandrika Mami have really given the due respects and made people think of 4 way test in every situation . As we have joined Rotary believing it's ideals, the 4 Way Test is “THE MANTRA” which we as Rotarians need to imbibe and spread the same to everyone we are in touch with. Thanks Raghu mam and Chandrika mami for shaking us upandremindingthatweneedtobebetter“HUMANBEINGS”. -Rtn.RajuBaliga th RMA students participated in the Yoga and Chess competitions conducted on 24&25 August 2013 by the Educationdepartmentandhavewonthefollowingprizes.

  3. 3. After a flurry of installations Midtowners gathered at RCL for the first time in the current Rotary year. The first official meeting of “Hogirana” was slated to share information on the ambitious project of Midtown. After the meeting was called to order by Vice-President Rtn.Harish, Rtn.Narendra N took charge of the proceedings. He recognized the contributions of many Midtowners before displaying a series of videos inspiring members to contribute. He informed the members the series of these heart touching videos will continue. He then shared the details of Midtowns mega project “Hongirana”,aprojectwhichwouldenablesight.He explained the background of the conceptwhich was radical and is catching up fast. The pioneer of the concept Dr.Humayun has come out with a new way of enabling vision to millions. Rtn.Narendra who is a member of USC Vitterbi (University of Southern California) is working in getting Dr.Humayun to visit Mysore. The core committee headed by Rtn.Sulaiman would include Rtn.Dr.Ravindranath, Rtn.Dr.Prahlad,Rtn.Bhanuchandran,Rtn.Ramkiand Rtn.Narendra. Birthday boys Rtn.Narendra Babu & Rtn. Dr. Raghu got a birthday song from the delighted Midtowners and had to cut the cake sans candles. Rtn.Narendra Babu hosted the evenings tea which includeddelectable'bennedosa'withdamroot. Two “tall” personalities of Midtown Rtn.Harish and Rtn.Dr.Prahlad chaired the meeting, Rtn.Harish gave a glimpse of how he would appear when he would lead the club. (@Rtn.Raghavendra – During Charter night , you had visualized Rtn.Harish as President, your wish seems to have come true too soon, keep wishing and we could have Harish as “Fulltime”Presidentsoon.Amen) Meeting on Hongirana There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the fence. The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily, gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper thantodrivethosenailsintothefence. Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper. Thedayspassedandtheyoungboywasfinallyabletotellhisfatherthatallthenailsweregone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said “you have done well, my son, butlookattheholesinthefence.Thefencewillneverbethesame.Whenyousaythingsinanger,they leave a scar just like this one.” You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound is still there. Make sure you control your temper the next time you aretemptedtosaysomethingyouwillregretlater. - Author Unknown The Fence

The device, which has already far surpassed its funding goal on Indiegogo, is a disposable square only 1.5 inches on each side and is meant to be worn on the clothing. The patch is embedded with a proprietary blend of non-toxic, FDA approved compounds that disrupt the mosquitoes' ability to track humans through exhaled carbon dioxide. Each patch provides 48 hours of protection once it has been exposed to the air. The team developed the patch with the intention of helping stop the spread of mosquito-borne diseases in remote areas, and pledge money is being used to sendthepatchestofamiliesinUganda.
