  NATIONAL MEDICAL AWARENESS SEMINAR – 1, held on 19 th July 2022     ON ZOOM IT WAS WATCHED BY 500 MEMBERS + 180 WATCHED ON YouTube   Pandemic has brought about many lifestyle changes in our way of living. The main change required was emphasis on physical health. It was noted that the silent killers like diabetes, hypertension, heart attacks, were not so silent and affected younger people. Mental issues of health were rampant, particularly amongst the younger generation. The profile of various diseases had changed. District Chairman Mrs. Mita Sheth envisaged medical seminars to address and inform the change in medical dynamics after Covid.   “Inner Wheel is a service organization.

Inner Wheel Forest

    Inner Wheel Forest – The Holy Initiation in Inner Wheel Presidentship The alarm rang at 3 am. It rang so many times for so many reasons at various points in time in my life, like everyone. For catching a flight or a train. For waking up the children for their school and examinations. For medical purposes. For getting up to go to the office. But this was for a different occasion.   It was the first day of my Presidentship at the Inner Wheel Club of Navi Mumbai Sunrise. I would have to get ready to go to the Inner Wheel Forest in the Kandivali area in Mumbai. I looked out of the window. It was still dark outside. I was relieved to see that the rain that had been lashing the city for the last few days had stopped. There was almost absolute silence and stillness all around. It was the perfect time to feel the same stillness and calm within you.   While getting ready, I thought, what could be a better time to start this day in my association with Inner Wheel? It was a little

Stree Shakti - A poem by Zainab Lokhandwala

    Stree Shakti Nursing her child, writhing in pain so deep From dawn to next dawn, there’s no time to sleep Check out the universe, you’ll find no other The ‘endower’ of life, she is a MOTHER .   He is our martyr, TV news blared aloud “Jai Hind” she says, showing she’s proud Hiding her grief, worries and sorrow Knowing they will fill up all her morrows… She was the ‘pillar’ of man’s life This valiant woman was his WIFE .   Washing clothes, cooking, mopping floors Wait, that’s not all, there’s even more Collecting harvest, putting grain in stores “Beti, fetch bhaiya, he’s playing outdoors” Sometimes by some, sadly considered a bother Little do they know… ‘Blessed is a home, if it has a DAUGHTER .   She knows when he’s happy, and also when there’s something wrong “My best friend is by my side”, he declares with aplomb Joyous times, fun times, or in times sinister Always by your side, yes she’s a SISTER .   All her varied roles, clos

  IN THE WAKE OF THE AFGHAN CRISIS- My take on peace. Fly Little peace dove Fly high I see you have dropped your olive branch And also your feathers That are floating by! How morbidly the shackles Of a regime Are affecting you The war zone The innocent victims The distraught children and women The futility of bloodshed The angst of hatred Destruction at its fore In a region that cannot call Its own their very own! Fly little peace dove Break away And fly high All eyes are upon you All hearts can hear your cry Fly little peace dove Break away And fly high! CA Nayana Karnik Das Treasurer IWC of Deonar

Hearty congratulations to the winners of ISO Mehndi Competition
