Aroehan, an NGO, invited me to join their Board of Trustees. It brought new experience and awareness of social issues.
Rotary brought many unforgettable moments. As the President of the Rotary Club of Thane Metro, I built two check dams, drilled two bore wells, and provided solar power to two schools. And a toilet block to a village school, and organised donation of one hundred bicycles to three village schools. Also distributed more than 1000 notebooks to village school students.
On the professional front, I was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by my alma mater MILS. Held two workshops for unions. Addressed many seminars including those organised by Baroda Management Association, Employers Federation of India.
And the unforgettable trip if the North-East and Japan during cherry blossom.
The annual visit to London. We celebrated Ganapati festival, Did three videos, wrote about Eagle House and speakers corner. And visited Tate Modern Museum. And discovered Monet.
And some more happy moments….
