Dodderi School Inauguration

Dear RCBians,


It was a most enjoyable inauguration function of the Happy School at Dodderi yesterday.


As you all know this is one of the clubs biggest school building project constructed in CSR partnership with UTC Aerospace at a cost of almost Rs 71.0 lakhs. The school premises also houses the 2nd Anganwadi of the year. It is a cute little place packed with all amenities required to look after about 20 tiny tots between the ages of 3-6 years supervised by the very maternal looking Smt Ratnakumari.


The event had a festive air about it with the children, UTC Managing Director Mr Chris Rao along with his key CSR personnel, MLA Mr Somashekar, Mr Sushant Bavsar, CFO Stopak, our CSR partner for another school, school head master & staff, village elders, parents, Panchayat & Zilla Parishad leaders and members of the vernacular press in full force.


We had a large contingent from RCB too, looking on in benign satisfaction at a job well done. Thank you for your support RCB & to all those who attended in person to see RCB history being created.


Rtn Shanti Baliga, Rtn Omana Mathews, Rtn Dr Gertrude D'Souza, Ann Shalini, IPP Rtn Zarir K.Batha, PP Rtn Ranga Rao, Secy Rtn Musten Jiruwala, VP Rtn Vincent P.Raj, Rtn Manjunath AN, Rtn Sanjay Udani, Rtn Dinesh MC, Rtn Arjun Menda, PP Rtn Dr Ghorpade, Rtn Ram Krishna Mudgal, Rtn Rajashekar BN, Rtn Anil Gupta and Rtn Nilesh Kapse.


Thanks also to Club Manager Mr Prakash & Project Co-ordinator Mr Shivakumar for taking care of the myriad small things that go into making an event successful.


A special note of thanks to Dr Manjunath Dodderi, the local resource person & contact introduced to RCB (by Rtn Anil Gupta) without whom this momentous effort would not have been possible. The fully modern school sent all the attendees & especially the MLA Mr Somashekar into raptures of delight. This is true magic of combined effort created by the seed of an idea sowed by PP Rtn Ranga, cultivated by Rtn Manjunath, nurtured by IPP Rtn Zarir & overseen by the new team.


The meaningful effort, the feeling of satisfaction & sense of fulfillment is all pervasive & complete.
