INSTALLATION OF 96TH PRESIDENT DR ASHOKE KUMAR BASU

MESSAGE
I thank the members of the Rotary Club of Calcutta for electing me President of Rotary Year 2015-16. It will be very difficult to follow in the footsteps of my predecessor, Rtn. Ritwik Gupta, under whose leadership the club has won 28 district awards. However, keeping in mind the history and heritage of the "old number one," I will do rny best to uphold tradition and live up to your expectations. A club works through its committees and I am lucky to have dynamic and resourceful directors and experienced committee chairpersons on board with me.
In addition to the regular activities and programs undertaken by our club, we envisage to activate four matching grants. Two matching grants, one for 150 sanitary toilets and the other for 100 paediatric heart surgeries have already been sanctioned and we are working on grants for immunization and family planning in slum areas of howrah and generation and supply of solar power in a remote village of Sunderbans. The other major project we intend to undertake is starting a school in the name of Rotary Club of Calcutta,
We are in synergy with the District and intend to take active part in all the District activities. I request District Governor Rtn. Jhulan Basu to guide, help and support us in our endeavor. I ask for the blessings of ail our past Presidents and PDGs and look forward to active participation from the members to make this year a smashing success.

Rtn Dr. Ashoke Kumar Basu President 2015-16

RI PRESIDENT K. R. RAVINDRAN
SAN DIEGO MESSAGE FOR GOVERNORS 2015-16

My friends, my world-class governors:

It is not only a joy but perhaps the most significant moment of my life to be with you here this evening as we prepare together to take on the leadership of our great organization. There are certain moments in one's life that are so pivotal, so transformative, that they become the temporal milestones by which all of our subsequent experiences are measured,

When we look back at the events that form our lives, we divide them all into "before" and "after." We can point at one moment and say: That is when everything changed. I believe that for all of us here tonight, this is that moment.

Outside, the world carries on: our homes, our businesses, our families, our clubs. But here in San Diego, our worlds are shifting. Our vision is sharpening. Our understanding, our ambition, our drive — all of these are expanding.

During this week, you and I will begin to understand the breadth and depth of this organization and the complexities and complications that surround it. Perhaps in the past we may even have spoken about things we saw as being wrong with Rotary; now, we have both the privilege, arid the awesome responsibility, of trying to make those things right. Yet as our horizons stretch out before us, we know that they are not without limit, for we have but one year to lead. Three hundred and sixty-six days — each one of them numbered, without price, and never to return.

Time is finite
When we know that our time is limited, it becomes so much more precious. The drive to achieve, to create, to leave behind something that says, "I was here; I mattered," becomes so much stronger. And that is why so many see their year in Rotary office as the chance of a lifetime to make their mark. But what I say to you is, if you really want to make a difference, then use your year not so much to make your mark on Rotary, but to bring the work of Rotary forward —to make its mark on the world.

We are all mortal. Our time on this earth is finite. And yet, we forget. We spend our days, as the poet Rabindranath Tagore wrote, in stringing and unstringing our guitars, while the song we came to sing remains unsung.

What will it take for us to see every hour, every day, every year that we have been given, as a gift — one that is precious, fleeting, and irreplaceable?

From the moment we are born, we receive gifts. The first gift is life itself. And then we receive gifts of love, of caring, and the nurture of our families; of education; of health; of every talent and ability that we learn and acquire. As we move through our lives - our parents, our friends, our spouses, and our children, our livelihoods and our material wealth — all are gifts to us.

Sometimes, a gift is so tremendous that we are overwhelmed with gratitude — as I felt a few months ago when we were blessed with our first grandchild — and as I feel tonight as I stand here, with all of you. I know that you are thinking now of how many gifts you all have to be grateful for. And I ask myself and I ask you: What do we do in return? Will we come to the end of our lives and realize that we have wasted our gifts, achieving nothing that will outlive us? Or will we look back and know that when we pass from this world, the good that we have done will remain?

We have only one chance at our lives. And we will have only one chance at the 2015-16 Rotary year. The time is so short, and there is so much to be done.

Poliomyelitis
Our first challenge, our greatest challenge, is the eradication of polio. When we made the promise to eradicate polio, more than a quarter of a century ago, we had 125 endemic countries. More than a thousand children we re being paralyzed every single day.

Today, we have three countries that are endemic, And in all of last year, we had only 333 cases of polio. Almost all of them were in one country: Pakistan. There, our fight is not only against the polio virus but against the forces of ignorance, brutality, and oppression. Our challenges lie not only in getting the vaccine into the mouths of children but in getting the health workers safely past those who want to kill them. The government and people of Pakistan are striving, along with Rotary, to reach a polio free future —while the Taliban on motorcycles shoot the women who are on their way to immunize babies, and now have resorted to killing innocent children in their classrooms.

No one could have envisioned 25 years ago that it would come to this. But the work of 25 years, the faith and dedication and trust of millions, will not be brought low by so lowly an opponent. We will battle on. We will prevail. Because a future without polio is a gift that we have promised to the children of the world. And indeed, it is a gift that we will give. We know that Rotary has tremendous potential. But we also know that in so many clubs and districts, the reality of Rotary is not the way it ought to be.

Classification
I believe that we have to find a way to bring back the fundamentals that built our organization: the emphasis on high ethical standards in all aspects of our lives, and the classification system that encourages a diversity of expertise in each club. Too often, these ideas are viewed as little more than inconvenient obstacles to increasing our membership rolls. But they have been essential to Rotary's success, and we ignore them at our own peril. For when you have a club formed of people whose honesty is unimpeachable and whose breadth of expertise allows them to do anything they set their minds to, then you have the kind of club that is truly a gift.

But we are all too aware that we cannot talk about Rotary today the way we did a century ago and still expect it to grow. We live in a new reality now. The new focus on branding is indeed necessary. We need to reposition our image, which we recognize.

We want to raise more money for our Foundation to do even more good, but we know that if we ask too insistently, or for too much, we will drive away members.

Membership
We want to attract younger members, but we do not want to alienate the older members who now form our backbone, or lose sight of the recently retired who still have so much to give.

We want to encourage club members to participate in activities beyond the club level, to become more involved in the network of Rotary, but we do not want membership to become a burden that demands too much in the way of time and resources.

There are no easy answers to any of these questions. And yet somehow, these answers must be found — and we are the ones who must find them. You are the eyes and ears of the Rotary world. You know what your clubs need, and what they have to offer. You are the ones who can bring together what Rotary is and what it could be — and help us to chart a course forward, together.

Be a gift yourself
I will ask all of you to give a great deal in the days and months ahead. I will ask you to give your faith, I will ask you to give your dedication, I will ask you to give your commitment and your compassion. I will ask you for all these gifts. And I will ask you for more, even more than that. For I will ask you, Rotary year, not merely to give these gifts — but to be a gift yourself.

We in Rotary aspire to great deeds. We look up to and admire the towering figures of history who gave such great gifts to humanity: Abraham Lincoln, who gave the gift of human dignity to so many; Mother Teresa, who gave the gift of compassion to the forgotten, Mahatma Gandhi, who gave the gift of peaceful change to the oppressed.
All of them gave their lives to others, and their very lives became gifts to the world.

We know that we are not like them, and we do not aspire to live the lives they led, but we can be inspired by their example. We can be inspired to say, "How can I, in the life that I live — and without neglecting the responsibilities that are so dear to me — how can I, too, become a gift to the world? We can. And we will.

All of you have been given so many gifts. And you have now been given this great gift of one year to take all your talents, all your gifts, everything that you are and can become — and Be a Gift to the World.

You have one year to take that potential and turn it into reality. You have one year to lead the clubs of your district and transform the lives of others. You have one year to build monuments that will endure forever — carved not in granite or marble but in the lives and hearts of generations to come.

This is our time. It will not come again. Let us grasp it.
Let us Be a Gift to the World.

Thank you.
K R Ravindran
President Rotary International 2015-16

HUANG BIDS FAREWELL

Immediate Past Rl President Gary C. K. Huang joined Ravindran on stage to exchange club banners, a convention tradition that unofficially marks the changing of the guard.
Huang talked about the projects he visited all over the world during his term, and how much they inspired him.

"Rotary has shaped and changed my life," he added. "I want to use my story to urge Rotarians to continue to welcome promising young people in your communities and to take care of those who need a little push from us. Someday, those we have helped might become a future president of Rotary International, or a successful businessperson, a mayor, or the president of a country. Within Rotary, anything is possible."
