    The Vignette section was a great read. I found the initiative on Sri Lanka truly fantastic. This shows how subtly Rotary can impact the lives of people. Great to know about PDG Krishnan Chari’s recognition. Rotary News is a respectable and extremely responsible assignment. Managing this for so many years only talks about one’s commitment to excellence.
