Message from Association President –
Sarita Lunani (2012-2013)
Dear Inner Wheel friends,
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom' – Marcel Proust
No organization can function without its Members knowing enough details about the organization, its objectives, aims, goals, duties and responsibilities. The District Directory serves this purpose and also acts as a bridge to get Members to know each other well through the information provided.
Friends, a new Inner Wheel year is unfoldling like a blossom with petals tightly concealing the beauty within. As we make our resolutions for the year ahead, let us, 'Pave the way…' by being innovatie, by doing something different and 'Blossom' with 'Synergy' to work together to realize our goals. 'Set your Goals high and don't stop till you get there…'. Every Member lubiricates the Wheel of Service. You are the hub. Let the wheel start rolling.
Our beloved IIW President, Carole Young from New Zeland, has this year given us a wonderful theme. She has asked us to, 'Be a Friend'. So simple, yet, so meaningful!! She wants to share our joys and our sorrows too. We al need a shoulder to cry on sometimes in life. I only hope that you have enough friends, that you will have a shoulder to cry on, when the time comes. People will forget what you said.. people will forget what you did....but people will never forgive how you make them feel.
We will work together so that we can smile together. I would like all Clubs and Members to join hands with me in working towards the, 'Goals & Visions for 2012-2013'.
- Expand & Grow Inner Wheel – Membership which is our greatest asset is declining the world over and we must strive hard to ensure the growth of IW.
- Working towards a Cleaner & Greener planet - We have inherited the Earth and it is our responsibility to hand it over to our future generations in the same shape, if not better.
- To Educate & Empower the Girl Child - Let us strength our resolve to educate the underprivileged Members of the society to bring in better future with peace and good health. Let us give them the key that throws open a wider range of career options to choose from and help shape their future.
- Publicize Inner Wheel - Inner Wheel has gained so much from your continuous involvement in service activities. But, we need to promote a more flattering image of our Organization. The image is not dependent on our sayings, it depends on our action.
I am confident that with your dedication and devotion, with your leadership and enthusiasm, with your ideas and your dreams, we will succeed in navigating our IW ship safely through every storm and reach the shores of success. I urge you my friends to re-dedicate yourself once again. I know, we cannot climb the mountain quickly, we must go slowly, but climb we must. I know it is a difficult task but certainly not impossible. We all know the journey of a thousand miles began with a single step and it is always better to light a candle than to curse darkness. We will go ahead, my friends…..as Winston Churchill has rightly said, “Never, Never, Never, Never Ever Give UP”.
“A Leader has the vision and conviction that a dream can be achieved. He inspires the power and energy to get it done”.
Wish you a successful, rewarding & inspiring year ahead.
