Mid Town Musings: May 2018
As the Rotary year is coming towards its end, we are trying to take stock of what we set out to achieve and where we are at this point. As is always the case, there is a lot more that can be done. With just two months to go, I hope to finish the pending tasks at hand. I am glad to see that Pres. Elect. Dr. Deepak Garg is getting into the groove. Together, we attended the DTA 2018 where we helped prepare Rotary teams from across the district take on the year ahead.
As usual, we welcomed the month with a boisterous celebration in the form of a Fellowship on 4th April. The event, which soon turned into a live music venue, was such a success that many of us stayed back late into the evening. On 18th April, Rajan Jayakar took us on a journey tracing back the history of judiciary in Bombay. The interesting talk not only revealed the evolution of judicial set-up in Bombay, but also took a glance at the growth of this thriving cosmopolitan. From this session emerged an opportunity to organise a guided tour of the High Court Museum which was lapped up immediately and fructified in May. On 25th April, Urvinder Madan, IAS Officer, Metropolitan Commissioner MMRDA, spoke to us about the transport scenario over the next decade in Mumbai and the areas around it. The talk gave us a further insight into the entire scope and scale of the plans, which will hopefully transform our city in the years to come.
Yours in Rotary,
Pres. Rtn Manoj Jalan
