Specttrum News (KS Kalsi): Rotary transcends all religion, respects every conviction and unites people across borders without any discrimination, which lends it the power to bring about positive change for a better world, said Rotary International President K R Ravindran, while addressing over 400 Rotarians in the jampacked auditorium of Chandigarh Judicial Academy.
Ravindran called upon the working professionals and business houses to give back to the society and make a difference in the lives of people in their own community by joining hands with Rotary.
The big corporates who want to do good in the society have immense opportunity to partner with Rotary and get a global footprint to spread their message across and really contribute in bringing about the change through their corporate social responsibility projects.
Ravindran recognised the two Rotary Peace Scholars from the city, namely C S R Reddy, IPS, Additional Director General of Police Punjab and The Tribune's Associate Editor Dinesh Kumar for having continued to contribute to the society in their own rspective ways.
On this occasion, Simardeep Kaur, student of Bhavan Vidyalaya Chandigarh, received a plaque for winning the interzonal declamation contest on the current year's Rotary theme, "Be a Gift to the World", in which many schools had participated and out of the 20 contestants she was adjudged the best.
