An impressive motor cycle rally was jointly organised in Mumbai by the Rotary Clubs of Mulund and Mumbai Bhandup to mark the World Polio Day, and raise awareness on the need to continue to keep India polio-free. There was both colour and glitter and of course young energy pulsating at the rally where some 200-odd Rotaractors from both the clubs turned up.
The rally began from the Fire Brigade station in Mulund West and went around the area, before ending at the Vaze College in Mulund East. “Indian Rotarians have worked so hard to make India polio-free, and we have to continue to raise awareness on the fact that the world, particularly our neighbours Pakistan and Afghanistan, are not yet polio-free and if we are not vigilant polio can return to India,” said PRID Ashok Mahajan, a member of RC Mulund.
RI District 3141 DG Prafull Sharma and some 40 to 50 Rotarians from both the clubs and Inner Wheel members joined the rally in cars.
