First of all, I pay tribute to all the Past Presidents of this 33-year-old club where I am a member. I’ve been inducted into Lions Club in 2013-14 in the worthy hands of Past District Governor Lion Dr Hemant Duggad. I’ve grown up seeing the work of my parents who have been in service with this club for 29 years now hence I proudly say that I maybe a Lions Club member for just four years but I have been with Lions Club since I was ten years old.
Past Multiple Council Chairman Lion Santosh Shetty sir installed my father as President in 1997 & me exactly after 20 years later – this year. With God’s grace, we might get to see, my son Devraj installed as president of this club in another 20 years.
I am proud to be the first President of the second century of Lions Club International of which Lions Club of Link Road Malavani is a part. Primarily, we should strive hard to wipe the tears of the needy. 100% of this may not be physically possible, but let’s not shy away from setting that as our target. A good leader can just get the work done, but I’ll try my level best to harness my skills to the fullest so that we get more youngsters involved in our projects, as these young minds consist approx 78% of our population.
Vision, Hunger Relief, Environment, Diabetes Awareness & Vision Care are our International focus areas & so it would be ours too. With the help of the superb team, the board of directors have given me, veteran Lion Deepak Agnihotri as Secretary & Lion Dipali Salian as Treasurer. I have no doubts that I would reach the target to make our club reach to greater heights.
With the leadership training of GLT District Coordinator 2015-17 MJF Lion Jayu Singh Babla, innovative projects of Immediate Past District Governor MJF Lion Prashant Patil where I served last as District Chairman- Administration and the skills of current District Governor where I’m surely going to be the Game Changer with the expectations of the club before 30th June 2018
Hope you visit My Appeal for our Online Fund Raiser for making sure we go the extra mile & make sure your business does too. To the Lion members I say a big THANK YOU for electing me as President, & to my non-Lion friends & business clients, my appeal is you join our 2nd home in organising more camps & projects which would be shared on our Facebook page which I expect you to Like & Share too.
Lion Rajesh Bhoja Salian
1st President of the 2nd Century of Lionism
