We've gotten some respite from the heat recently, and despite the unpredictable rains, we managed to successfully host all the functions planned for July. We began with the Rain Dance, which was organized on an entirely different note this year. The Club was turned into a beach-like destination, with beach volleyball, lighthouse and a flute-playing mermaid being the prime attractions. The DJ was perfect for the evening and kept people on their feel throughout. I'd like to express my gratitude to Mrs. Ranoo Shrivastava and Shri Sanjay Pabuwal for organizing this event so well. Also, post our rain dance, the Weather Gods blessed us with continuous showers, thus making July an extremely pleasant month for Jaipur.
Another highlight for the month was Sooriley of JCL, whiich was an even bigger hit than the previous years. This year, it was much more meticulously planned and saw a record number of 46 participant who performed with a live band. The evening was such a success primarily because of the effort put in by participants, who rehearsed relentlessly. Shri Saket Mathur also patiently, trained them for hours on end, on seven different occasions, along with the musicians. JCL also discovered a new anchor in Dr. Kuldeep Sahai, who surprised the audience with his skills and showed us that he is as good an anchor as a doctor.
In the Jaipur Yoga League championship, organized by International Association of Yoga, at SMS indoor stadium on July 21, saw the participation of JCL's Yoga instructor, Riya Chaudhry and six other members. While Riya won the first prize in the 34-45 years (female) category, Mrs. Suman Sharma, wife of our member Shri Naresh Sharma, won the second prize in the 55+ (female) category and Shri Jitendra Singh also won second prize in 55+ (male) category.
The newly-constructed 'Cold Room' of size 6'x14'x8' is now fully functional, and it will help us eliminate wastage of raw and cooked materials, besides saving electricity. The swimming pool has also been cleaned.
It has been observed that members don't sign their bill before leaving, resulting in our income employees losing their salary. So, it is a humble request that you sign our bills either on the same day, or latest by the next day, to prevent this from happening.
