Paul Harris the Founder of Rotary said: "Friendship was the foundation rock on which Rotary was built and tolerance is the element which holds it together."

Our Pride & Honor
Professor Yunus recieves US Congressional Gold Medal of Honor
CONGRATULATIONS NOBEL LAUREATE PROF. YUNUS. US Congressional Gold Medal of Honor is an Act of Congress, and a unique medal is designed thereafter. The Honor is considered in committee on the nomination by 2/3 of the Senators and Congressmen, then The Act is usually unanimous. Replica are cast for public sale in bronze. Perhaps this is a more difficult award than even Nobel Prize because of the number of persons that need to sign off on the award.

I am the 25th President of the Club in its 28th year. I am a Charter Member of this club. My name is D. D. Ghosal and my classification is Business Integration. I am Head of Marketing at Bombay Sweets Ltd., who introduced the first Potato Crackers in Bangladesh.
I attended the Rotary International Convention in Bangkok with my wife. We enjoyed the fellowship and loved the presentations. You can read about our experiences and see some pictures here.
Rotary has inspired me from the beginning. For a while, I was away from Rotary with business and other organizational commitments. But Rotary was with me as the methods and techniques I learned in Rotary helped me to guide both businesses and organizations to greater success and stability.
In business and profession we exercise power. We have the authority to hire and fire, command and control. In Rotary and through Rotary I learned the skills to earn influence to motivate and inspire. Exercise of power can be corrosive and develop resistance. Influence and motivation creates harmony, respect, dedication and even love from those influenced!
Rotary takes time to grow in one. It needs to ferment or mature over time. In these rushed times, often, we miss the bigger picture and get lost in many small details. Rotarians are getting older around the world and we have decided to keep the organization young by inviting promising young members. My goal is to induct enough members to grow the club membership to 50 this year.
The history of our Club is rich. We act and respond boldly to catastrophe and crisis in our nation and sometimes internationally. In the Dhaka flood of 1988 - we ran a camp for 3000 families for 60 days. Every Rotarian and many spouses went out on boat expedition to carry cooked food to families stranded in the flood in the outskirts of Dhaka. Lately, we are helping 4 rural girls with all their expenses towards school and other incidental expenses. We also finance the complete treatment of a cataract patient every month including surgery and post-surgical stabilisation. Our Projects are boastable, read about them here including the ones we are planning. Visit us regularly, perhaps join us as a member or just participate in them.
Thank you and tell us what you think and tell your friends about us and our work.
The ROTARY THEME for 2013-14
" Every one of us in Rotary is here because we were invited, and because we made a choice to accept that invitation. Every day since then, we’ve been faced with another choice: whether to just be a member of a Rotary club, or to truly be a Rotarian."
"All of us came to Rotary to get involved, and to make a difference. And in Rotary service, as in just about everything else in life, the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. If you only put in a token effort, you won’t accomplish very much, and you won’t find much satisfaction in what you do accomplish. But when you make the decision to truly Engage Rotary – to bring Rotary service and Rotary values into every day of your life – that is when you start to see the incredible impact that you can have. That’s when you find the inspiration, the excitement, and the power to truly change lives. And no one’s life will be changed more than your own."
"Rotary is based, as it’s always been, on our core values: service, fellowship, diversity, integrity, and leadership. These are the values that define us as Rotarians: they’re the values we live by, and the values we strive to bring to the communities we serve."
Find a Rotarian and ask to be invited to this wonderful transformative experience and global fellowship.
