It was the time for dinner which everyone had while standing near the alavs. The
delicious dinner made the party more remarkable. As the members were enjoying
the dinner, announcement for the games
was made which proved out to be the blast
of the party.
Mimicries and enacting an advertisement
brought the creative part out of everyone. Superb
performances were given by the members who made
the night even more memorable. Spelling of words and name
puzzle tested the intelligence of the members. Organizers never
miss the chance to allow members for taking more selfies as Best
Selfie was one of the tasks given to them & could see the excitement &
enthusiasm in them while taking. After the games got over, organizers gave
away the prizes to winners.It was time to depart and go back home with lovely
and wonderful memories of the party. Those who came enjoyed and those who didnt
would have surely regret but club always give them a second chance.

MY CORNER

BY LEO VISHESH KASLIWAL

Philately is the study of stamps. Stamp collection is one of the areas of Philately and a person who collects stamps is called a
Philatelist.
Numismatics is the study or collection of currency, including coins, tokens, paper money, and related objects. Numismatists
are often characterized as students or collectors of coins.

REPORTED BY LEO NAMAN NEMA | 3RD JANUARY 2015 | SATURDAY

The practice and preparations started a month


prior to execute better than the benchmark set
in past few years.
Unfortunately due to bad weather and no season
rains the tournament execution was not possible
on the ground booked by us. The board looked
into the matter and it was decided to cancel
the tournament but with the cancellation the
excitement and enthusiasm amongst the players
turned into disappointment, who had come
travelling a long distance to play the matches...

disease at there age. We


are sharing this thought
in this report because
we can really think hard
on it. As today in India,
usually we need to replace
a blood unit of any group
in exchange of a blood
unit. But this scenario is
almost over in Jaipur with
the efforts of Lion Govind
Sharma and his club. Our
club should also take a
note of this.

Lot of issues
and budgets
were discussed
and passed
among all the
dignitaries
and council
members . All
the post holders
of the micro group including Multiple Joint Secretory
Leo Mohit Nagori presented there reports and plans.

Leo multiple cricket tournament - Hosted by leo club of indore main


The legacy cricket tournament of Leo club of
Indore was to be hosted with second council
meet on 3rd January. This time the clash was
between the multiple districts and as being the
host club Leo club of Indore had to put our nose
in keeping everything perfect.

Small opportunities are often the beginning of great achievements.

impossible for west guys to cover up.


Result: Leo club of Indore main won by 30 runs.

With this the knockout matches ended and


1. Leo club of Indore main
2. Leo club of Bhiwandi
3. Leo club of Ahmedabad
4. Leo club of Bombay uptown (won by net run rate)
Managed to enter the semi-finals.

Post lunch, the first match of semi-final was:


Leo club of Indore main vs Leo club of Bhiwandi.
The match was tough
from both the
sides.
Batting
first
Leo club of
Bhiwandi made 28 runs
in 5 overs
And the host club lost
by mere 1 run.
Result: Leo club of
Bhiwandi won
by 1 run and entered
the finals.
2nd semi-final was
played between
JASHN and Leo club of
Leo club of Ahmedabad
Bombay uptown :
This time keeping the uptown guys on a lower side Leo club
of Ahmedabad showed their determination over cricket as a
religion and won the match.

After all the breath-taking matches it was time for finals now :

LEO CLUB OF AHMEDABAD VS LEO CLUB OF BHIWANDI


Bhiwandi won the toss and elected to bat first and their
decision went correct as after first innings Ahmedabad boys
needed 42 runs to win in just 5 overs which was a tough target
to achieve.
Ahmedabad showed great batting and gave team a hope to
win. Gradually in the mid overs the bowling team bucked up
and wickets started to fall and one by one added more to the
list. As a result Leo club of Bhiwandi won the finals by 10 runs
and became the champions.
First time in the Leo district cricket tournament history Leo
club of Ahmedabad lost and this trend was changed by Leo
club of Bhiwandi -the winners of Hit n Run 2014-15 hosted by
Leo club of Indore main.

I am both a philatelist and a numismatist. I have been pursuing these hobbies since I was around 9 years old. I was
inspired by my grandfather, who had a huge collection and
had been carrying on this activity since his own childhood
days. I was always curious to know about the meaning
behind each stamp and coin and the country from which it
came. Both these hobby have taught me a lot about the history and culture of various countries around the world.
Stamps are of various shapes and sizes. Most are printed
on paper while in some instances they have been printed
on khadi, silk, cotton etc. Some stamps have fragrances of
different flowers. Some are 3D. Some have precious stones
on them.
I have over 1 lakh postal stamps, belonging to approximately 120 different countries. The oldest stamp is from the
late 19th century. Being a member of the Philately Bureau,
I regularly receive the latest stamps, first day covers and
miniature sheets that are released in India.
My coin collection has ancient coins belonging to the 13th
century, coins released by the East India Company, coins
belonging to the erstwhile princely states of Gwalior,
Udaipur etc. The major collection has Indian coins but there
are other coins from around 60 countries. These coins are
systematically arranged both on the basis of their value (1
paisa, 5 paisa, Re.1, Rs. 2) and also on the basis of the year
in which they were issued (1972, 1995, 2012 and so on).
Commemorative coins are ones which are issued on some
special events. They also form a big part of my collection.
With the advent of newer technologies like e-mails and
e-commerce, stamps and coins are becoming rare by the
passing day. Naturally, these hobbies are also fading
away. But I feel that this is the time when we need to hold
on to these objects because touching them alone transports
us to that time and teaches us more than books can.

Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become


a man of value.

MYTH

Frequent trims make your hair grow faster.

MYTH

FACT
Youve probably heard that rigorous
brushing will distribute the natural oils
from your scalp to add shine to your hair or that it
will stimulate blood flow to your scalp and boost hair
growth. Neither is true. In fact, brushing causes friction
on hair, leading to cuticle damage and breakage, which
makes hair lusterless and frizzy. Brush your hair
minimally & use the right toolsa wide-toothed comb
or a paddle brush with ball-tipped, plastic bristles.

FACT
You dont need to practice shampoo

FACT
Hairstylists love to spread this myth.The icy water will
make the cuticle of your hair close so its flat (and
light-reflective), not ruffled (and dull-looking).
Your hair, however, contains no living cells, it
doesnt react to cold or hot water

MYTH

Samvaad se Samadhaan Tak

A cold-water rinse makes your hair shinier.

FACT
Cutting the ends of your hair doesnt affect the follicles
in your scalp, which determine how fast and how
much your hair grows. Hair grows an average of
a quarter-inch every monthwhether or not
you cut it.

APNI BAAT

eena Rao, who has been teaching slum children for free in Surat, Gujarat, has benefited over 5,000 students
so far, working with 34 volunteers across the city. The curriculum lays emphasis on a holistic education by
including discipline, yoga, mannerisms, and other aspects which are often neglected by the government
schools. And all of this is free of cost for the children. We admire her dedication and love towards education.

She introduced Prayas, a free coaching institute for slum children, with the
help of her husband in 2006. Initially having started with teaching 2-3 children
herself, she now has a team of 34 volunteers who teach around 1,200 students
at eight different coaching centers across Surat, Gujarat. Rao, with the help of
various volunteers, conducts coaching for the students of classes 3rd to 8th at
various locations for free. She pays Rs.1,000-1,500 to the volunteers out of her
own pocket or some donations that Prayas receives.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT YOUR INITIATIVE?
RAO: A batch has 30 students and classes are conducted in the evening from 6 pm to 8 pm. Apart from teaching basic
subjects, she also imparts moral education, and encourages students to engage in various art and craft activities.The
curriculum lays an emphasis on holistic education by including discipline, yoga, mannerisms, and other aspects which
are often neglected by the government schools.
WHAT WAS THE IMPACT OF YOUR EFFORTS?

RAO: A couple of months of training brought radical changes in the students. They stopped using abusive language
and slang, mellowed down a bit and learnt a few basic courtesies. They became more disciplined and started showing
better results in academics.
WHAT WERE THE MAJOR CHALLENGES YOU FACED?

RAO: Convincing the children and their families was a challenge, Rao says.
It took a lot of time to build trust and get the children and families interested. Also, getting dedicated volunteers
with the right spirit is important. And, because we dont pay them much, we have to convince them to strike the right
chord, Rao says.

Aashirvachan
EXPERIENCE
IS THE BEST
TEACHER
Experiences can be good or bad, however what is important is, what we learn from them. As learning from experiences is the best, many a times it comes too late. I am very
happy for my children as Leo club of Indore has provided
them a platform to organize events, to enhance their creative and management skills & finally to learn from their
own experiences.
The activities conducted by Leo Club of Indore are at par
as compared to any other club or organization. The club
encourages its members to understand ones responsibilities, work as team and emerge out as a leader.
Though I am not a part of any Leo organization, the most
appreciable thing that I see in Leo Club of Indore is the
dedication towards Leoism and sincerity towards making
an event successful. I hope that all of you must be implementing these lessons learnt from Leo club to your profession too & must be excelling in that.
Keep Performing!

INDORE, JANUARY 2015

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

Leo Club of Indore is the perfect epitome of hospitality, dedication, innovation and hard work. It was only because of their efforts the rain affected
impossible cricket tournament became possible. Nakhrali dhani was another
wonderful experience of traditional dining and dancing. I personally had
a very memorable trip and I am sure every Leo had a same feeling. On behalf of multiple 323 and all the Leos, I thank leo club of indore for these
wistful memories and Congratulate them for successfully hosting 2nd
multiple council meet.
Leo Dipesh Doshi
Multiple District Secretary (323)

I wish to thank all the Members of Leo Club of Indore especially to our host club
president Leo Vaibhav khandewal for contributing to the success of the 2nd Leo
Multiple Council Meet for the Leoistic Year 2014-15. I have heard nothing but glowing responses from those who attended it. There would never have been such a positive
response without your generous support, whether as regards finances or as regards organizing the Dinner at Nakhrali Dhani.I would really like to appreciate Leo Club of Indore for
organizing wonderful tracking with the support of awesome weather and the selection of
perfect place to track. And Yes how could we forget the Indore Specialty, the Delicious food
especially Poha which actually served as the cherry on the top, that went into making this
a truly memorable Meeting. From the day I have joined Leoisim, I have always heard if
it is LEO CLUB OF INDORE then its always PERFECT and I am very glad that your
honest efforts has proved the same.Again, I really cannot begin to express my admiration and gratitude for all your hard work and generosity in hosting one of the best
Meeting, in which I have ever participated. Thank you!!!
One of the cornerstones of Leoism is the fellowship that comes with
Leo CA Rahul Jain - Multiple District Treasurer(323)
being a Leo. The
feeling of belongingness and camaraderie that one
experiences upon being
a part of the Leo family is unparalleled. And for me, that
very sentiment resonated throughout the Leo Multiple Council Meet held recently in Indore!
Integrity, knowledge and professionalism are the words that come to mind when I think of
Leos from Indore. The respect and care extended the Leo Clubs from District 323-G1 is overwhelming and profound, and especially that of the Leo Club of Indore. As hosts, the Leos of the
Leo Club of Indore have always played a flawless role and this Council Meet was no different
to that adage. Under the capable and brilliant leadership of Club President Leo Vaibhav
Khandelwal, team LCI was at the forefront in all aspects. The cricket tournament was an
exciting beginning of the trip, the fervour of which lasted way beyond the finale match. The
unforgettable visit to the cultural oasis of Nakhrali Dhani and its mouth-watering cuisine
were absolutely incomparable. The Council Meet, too, in the presence of Lion leaders from the
District and Multiple as well as Leo PMDPs was an enriching experience of exchanging ideas,
learning lessons, unveiling the Leo Directory and Leo App, and even performing skits to unveil
the Delhi convention! The true worth of an experience lies is how much one misses it, cherishes
it and reminisces about it... and Indores Council Meet certainly counts amongst one of them.
It was beyond endearing to meet the dear friends Ive made from Indore and to be gifted
with hospitality that feels like a family reunion, once again.As a fellow Leo who takes
pride in sharing my Multiple with such prolific Leo clubs, I extend my heartiest kudos to
all LCI members for being such gracious hosts and giving us visitors some wonderful
memories for a lifetime! With Leoistic Regards,
Lion-Leo Ojas Rawal - Vice Multiple District President(323)

We did it again!

Three cheers for all the


arrangements at the council meet
