Mr Kishore Mandhyan addressed the Club on “Transition from Diplomacy to Politics : UN to AAP”. He was nostalgic of coming to Rotary. He started his career on a full paid Scholarship for Peace Fellowship at Harvards - Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. How do we use our knowledge to bring about a change in society. He spoke about the notion of doing good in whatever form and doing something for our country. You dreamt, you dared and it happened.

Role of UN is peacekeeping and prevention of outbreak. If conflict breaks out then there is a need to bring about peace through negotiations, agreement, etc. UN sends army with contribution and establishes the rule of law. Develop human rights issues setting up interim parliament, elections, constitution and then elections.

The AAM Admi Party has the desire to bring about change in society by bringing people together from all segments of society. Mr Mandhyan believes in “Swaraj” self rule and empowerment and also decentralization power to the individuals, decentralization from the centre, to the state to the panchayat level. Today, decisions made by the ruling party need to be dependable and reliable in the eyes of the foreigners. “We will make mistakes and move forward”.

Mr Kishore Mandhyan was reluctant to join the Congress or BJP but gladly joined the AAP. A pedigree diplomat he retired as the Political Director in the Executive Office of the Secretary General of the United Nations. He returned to Mumbai 10 months ago & has joined the AAP.

Someone who has the experience of heading the peace keeping forces of the UN in Kuwait, Czechoslovakia, Iraq etc he is one powerhouse of knowledge. A batch mate of the likes of Shashi Tharoor & someone who rubbed shoulders with Obama, Clinton, Bush and Carter.

Padma Shri Mrs Anu Aga, Former Chairperson, Thermax spoke on “Managing Difficult Times”. She walks the talk and paves the path for others to follow in her stead. Heading the HR division in the family held, Thermax, she was forced to take over the reins as Chairperson on the untimely death of her husband. This loss was further aggravated deeply when in the same year she lost her 25 year old son and her mother in law. Life shattering and a most daunting task to resurrect a company which was already facing troubled times and when you have lost your dearest. Most had started to write them off. Probably the first company in history to replace its entire board. Mrs Aga took the company to a new high and Thermax is, today, a Billion dollar enterprise.

Swami Sukhabodhananda, Spiritual Leader and Corporate Guru addressed the Club on “Shakti : The Power of Women”.

He believes that the 'giving' role of a woman is tremendous. The virtues of a woman include her ability to learn, she is personified as Goddess of Wealth and inner strength. In his many self development programs he taught people to “respond” and not to “react”. We should recognize and validate what we have. A woman is compassionate and has a soft heart which is truly wise. We should mean what we say and not just react mechanically. When autopilot takes over we lose control of ourselves. Most of us try to minimize our experiences with the result we do not “experience” the experienced. The past experiences dominate the current experience with the result the purity of the experience is lost. We also do not optimize on an experience. Our past is polluting the present when actually we can take joy out of nothing.

Joy is in what is. We should not demand happiness. Many a times we do not get fulfillment even after success. In every family there is conflict and dissatisfaction. Time is present. We should be happy in this very moment. He requested Rotary to focus on “psychological and good mental health” of people to become successful and fulfilled.
