  1. 1. Vol. : 33 Special Issue 02 Date : 07-11-2013 Pages : 08 Hearty welcome to Mrs.Shameem Kunil District Chairman's visit to Innerwheel Midtown th Mrs.Shameem Kunil was born on 7 January into a very broadminded cosmopolitan and academically oriented family. Mrs.Shameem did her schooling at Baldwin Girl's High School and her college at VHD Home Science College in Bangalore. She is married to PHF Rotary Past President Abdulrehman Kunil, who has his business in Bombay and Mangalore. They are blessed with 3 children – 2 daughters and a son who are all well settled. Mrs.Shameem Kunil's love for social service made her join the Inner Wheel Club of Mangalore North in 1989. There was no looking back after that. Shameem became the club secretary in 1991-92, vice-president the following year, the club president in 1993-94 and did various club projects and filled the coffers of the club by holding two major fund raising programs. Influenced by a sports loving family, she was the games captain at both school and college. She bagged a lot of prizes at Rotary sports meets also. Her love for sports further came to the forefront when she, as president, took up a project and conducted sports and games for Inner Wheel club members in and around South Canara for three years. Naturally, recognizing the well-spring of talents within her, seniors in the club encouraged her to enter the district in 2007-08 when she was elected as district editor. She has taken up the posts of ESO twice, vice-chairman and now the chairman. Her interests are multifarious and her activities are numerous. She is the Chartered Director of the first 'Dakshina Kannada Mahila Co-operative Bank”, Mangalore ; Past President of “AGE-Mangalore”, an NGO for Senior citizens; trustee of “Preethi Nidhi Trust”, an NGO for Lepers in Mangalore. She is the director, partner and proprietor of various family businesses in Mangalore, Kasaragod and Bangalore. She is also running a Play-School and Nursery named 'Step By Step' in Mangalore. She co-authored a cookery book titled 'Coastal Fiesta' in 1999. Her hobbies are varied. She loves to read, has a keen ear for music and enjoys watching sports. Her life is dancing and hence she takes part in all the musical skits and dances however tight her schedule may be. She loves to travel and is good at making friends and believes in the phrase, “FRIENDS ARE FOREVER”. Her genial nature is so appealing that the term 'ajaathashatru'- the one with no enemies, suits her completely. The ship of Inner Wheel is having a smooth, yet eventful sail with Chairman Shameem Kunil as its captain. Inner Wheel Midtown extends a warm welcome to District Chairman Mrs.Shameem Kunil.
  2. 2. District Chairman's Message Dear President, It is my proud privilege to greet all my warm and cheerful Inner Wheel members. I extend my sincere congratulations to you the leader of the club for being elected to this position that I consider a special one, because it gives you the opportunity to guide all the members of your club and have a relationship with them which will last forever. I am sure that you feel proud to belong to this great International Organisation whose members are spread all over the world and I hope that you will be able to pass on such an enthusiastic feeling to all the Inner Wheel sisters because the pride of Inner Wheel Club membership is our strength. New members add new blood to the existing ideas of the club and therefore I request all members to identify and invite their friends and associates whom they think have a passion to serve society and enrich your club. The International Inner Wheel Theme for 2013-14 is 'We, for women' You have certainly realised how sad and worrying the women's situation is all over the world. We, the women of the district can do something concrete for the less fortunate if we really want to. Say yes! We want to!!!!!! Thank you. Please remember... Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts. May the sun shine, all day long! Everything goes right and nothing wrong. Let us together envision, enrich, empower and enjoy Inner Wheel. Yours in Inner Wheel Shameem Kunil IW District-318 Chairman President’s Message Dear Friends, After four months of being the president of the Inner wheel club of Mysore Midtown I have come to realize what an honour and a privilege for me to serve as your President. Much is asked and demanded of those who have been blessed with a lot. The hallmark of civilization is not the riches we accumulate but how we treat the fellow human beings. The need to serve the fellow human beings is never ending and very demanding. We at the Inner wheel club of Mysore Midtown have been fortunate in our ability to contribute to help alleviate the suffering and the struggle of the misfortunate in the society. Every journey starts with a small step and I can proudly state that the Inner Wheel club of Mysore Midtown are the shining example of what collectively we can do to help our neighbourhood. While we cannot solve all the problems of the world what we can collectively give is to help one at a time with conviction, courage and commitment. I want to thank each one of you from the bottom of my heart in achieving this. Uma Vivek
