MY RBJBN – MY VISION - By Rtn. Ravindranath
The term "autism" comes from the Greek term "self admiration." A look at the history of the disease indicates that it was the Swiss psychiatrist Eugen Bleuler, who first coined the term in 1911. He noticed how people with the disorder retreated into their own mental world, a symptom that he also observed in schizophrenic patients. Autistic disorders are characterized by profound impairment of the whole development, begin in early childhood and are centered on social interaction and communication disorders. Autism is difficult to diagnose and the causes of the disease are to this day still unclear. Treatment of autistic disorders are not aimed at a cure, something which according to current knowledge is not possible. Autistic people have a live-long disablement and are therefore particularly limited in their social life. There are, however some therapeutic approaches that improve various abnormalities which can thus help with what can otherwise be a difficult social life. My vision for my RBJBN is setting up of world class Autism School to treat Autism children, disseminate information on Autism in Pre-Schools and educate the parents about Autism and how to deal with them.

Sign board at CV Raman Nagar

Rotary Autism Centre should be established on a 5 acres of land within about 30 KMs from Bangalore city. The infrastructure on this land should consist of various treatment Blocks, a Community/Conference Hall, Kitchen and Dining Hall, Play Ground and greenery all around. The eight Blocks will consist of Medical Evaluation Block, Psychological Services Block, Speech Therapy Block, Physical Therapy Block, Parent Counseling and Training Block, Assistant Block, Specialized Services Block, Admin and Registration Block. All the Blocks should be in a circular fashion so as to get a unified sense of action. While all the Blocks are for the treatment of residential and non-residential participants. A separate residential complex in the form of one bedroom arrangement should be located nearby for the facilities of people who come from outside Bangalore. The Faculty Block should be a separate Block that has rooms for Centre Head, Visiting Faculty, Discussion Hall, Pantry and Toilets. It is seen that the Faculty members for the treatment of Autism are mostly women and therefore transport facility should be made available for them to come to Centre and go back to the residence. The parent that generally accompany the child is usually the mother and a Recreation room for them should be provided separately. This Centre should be headed by the qualified person who should be given the responsibility to bring in Faculty members in the other related fields.

RBJBN meets at Rotary TTK Blood Bank, next to Thippasandra Post Office every Saturday at 4:30 pm.

Team JBN Celebrated 10 golden years of Service
Charter Night celebrated along with Governor Visit on 9th of October 2012 . Thanks to DG. Rtn Badriprsad , District Secretary Rtn Asha, AG Rtn. M J Mathews for gracing the occasion.

From President’s Desk
Donation of Time- the supreme charity Rotary is a mission of service to humanity. Service is the heart beat of Rotary. Service is the key that opens the door to Divinity. There is no dearth of pecuniary donations. Money, while it enables the implementation of Projects, it cannot elevate the level of human consciousness. This daunting task calls for noble Rotarians donating their time with emotional commitment. It is possible to donate money to a cause with stinginess and reluctance, especially if it is for reasons of ego, prestige and social pressure. Donation of our precious time, however, often comes from a place of devotion and faith in the cause. The new era needs this supreme charity, let us hope our Rotarians will not hold anything back and donate their time in abundance. The creation of the new era of ‘Peace through Service’ needs time, faith, devotion and enthusiasm, and not just money. The true and supreme charity is one of time donation. It is for every Rotarian to take up challenges that would translate Service opportunity for the welfare of the community.
