GREETINGS on the occassion of 62nd India Inpendence Day.

I have read in one of the Magazines: "India as a Nation full of enormous potential but it needs to fix some crucial problems. India could do well without the slogans such as India shining or Incredible India since problems exists in health care, child malnutrition and poor infrastructure in many parts of the country. Our work for growth and youth extends from the doorsteps of the independence handed over to us.

So is the case with Rotary movement. Today I participated on behalf of Rotary Club of Secunderabad west [ ] in the Celebrations in a school in the outskirts of Hyderabad. The school is run for economically backward students. We have provided a water bore-well in the premises. Stationary with sweet packets were presented to the tiny-tots who were delighted with the gifts. The cultural programme after the flag hoisting was a real visual treat.

I have also participated in Pratidhawni programme recorded on 13th August and telecast at 8-20 pm today by ETV2 -the popular private tv channel in telugu. The subject was Bharat- Bhavita [Future of India ] The discussion programme was with powerful speakers in the lead followed by the views of persons like me. My daughter has also taken part in this programme. I consider this as a great opportunity to me to listen to enlightened speakers and experience participating in a tv programme
