  • Committee Report: Little Things…!! We all have them; those small moments or things that often go unnoticed or unappreciated because we think they’re either insignificant or we take them for granted because we live in a culture that celebrates big accomplishments. Real life is happening all around us while we’re waiting for the big thing, we hope is going to give us some sort of inner peace, contentment or joy. The truth is that often the things that matter most are the small ones. An enduring voyage to haunt the little things that matter…TM Yashashree glided the 360th meeting beautifully by holding the little things of life. The Meeting declared as opened by President TM Namrata Pandey at 7.30P.m. She addressed the members by explaining the importance of the great deed of Volunteering.

The General Evaluation was done by TM Shruthi Shetty in detail. TM Shruthi appreciated all the role players and congratulated TME for her elegant style of meeting.  She has given some suggestion such as, a) A spoke person can be assigned as a representative for all virtual responses instead of taking whole floor reactions to elude distractions. b) All elements of the meeting including Table Topic segment can be added, if the evaluation is in written format during Speakathon Challenge sessions.
