which had a rock flavor, the ever so sweet X’mas Party, the ‘masti bhara’ New Years’ eve Gala, the musically eclectic Club Annual Day, the multi enthralling Annual MNC Gala Dinner, the screening of the humorous and very ‘real’ movie 3 Idiots, the serene ladies trip to Abu Dhabi…all of these were so enthusiastically received by you. It gives us immense satisfaction when our efforts are appreciated by one and all. Entire families were kept on their toes at the sports meet. Well, a little pain but plenty to gain. We promise that the momentum won’t go down. On the anvil, we have a picnic to Oman for the adventurous, the Valentine’s Ball for the quintessential lovebirds, Holi celebrations for the colorfully inclined, two plays and Cheti Chand all lined up in the coming weeks. 2010 will be another year to remember at the IC… Cheers.

ew year’s greetings to all of you. 2009 ended on a real high with a visit by the Executive Committee to meet the President of India, Smt. Pratibha Devisingh Patil at the Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi. I briefed the first lady of India about the history, activities and the initiatives taken by India Club in contributing to the social togetherness and harmony amongst the populace here. It was a proud moment for all of us at the Club that the year 2009 started off with the Club winning the DQAP at the hands of H.E. Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Prime Minister and Vice President of the UAE and ruler of Dubai. The same year concluded with a meeting with Smt. Pratibha Patil, the President of India. The details of the visit will be found within the pages of this magazine. We have been having an amazing array of events this past quarter with, practically one major event every week and all of them have been met with a huge response from all of you. The Biker’s Ball

ANNUAL DAY

s the sun slowly set and the lights came on, the stage was set for the the tough men and women in their finest leather and polished chrome to come together once again to celebrate the India club's bikers ball. Around 40 bikes roared into the specially prepared enclosure within the club and leading the pack was Jai Mansukhani. With an enthusiastic crowd cheering on, the sound of thunder filled the arena. On display were some of the finest machines from the fastest Hayabusa's, BMW's, Honda's to a lot of Harley's. Harley riders were seen trying the Royal Enfield which had a specially prepared display. A throw back to their younger days and thier first love one must presume. The evening started with a band performance from the 'Puckers' who had some technical problems with their guitar but nevertheless put up some sound music. Next time they could invite the bikers for an Informal Karaoke rock session, 'Bikers Rock'. Prizes were awarded for the best three bikes and there was even a 'noisiest machine' contest which the Harleys won hands down. With some lovely 70's music by DJ Fini, drinks, dancing and a lavish spread for dinner a good time was had by all Till next year........ Ride Safe.

ad a great time at the 46th Club Annual Day celebrations. The party was organized very well as usual. The food was great. Unfortunately, Neeraj Shridhar lost his voice which was a bit disappointing and unfortunate. However, the back-up band was excellent. All the same, we enjoyed the party.

MNC GALA DINNER t is with great pleasure that I

Iam writing to you. The

recently held MNC function was a great event and a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The programme conducted by the club was magnificent and, true to tradition of MNC the annual dinner was very glamorous. The violinist welcoming guests at the entrance, scintillating dancers performing on an international dance theme...magicians doing amazing tricks. The highlight of the day of course were the pole dancers who danced right in the midst of the crowd very gracefully. Needless to say the food as always was the very best jalebis, kebabs and awesome food resulting in the foodcourts and the bar counters being swamped with happy revellers portraying the sentiments of the event. All in all it was a totally memorable

evening and we wish that we get to witness more of such events in the future as well... Shalini Bhatnagar Membership No.4626

NEW YEAR’S BASH e had attended the New

WYear party with our family and friends. It was a good party,and we had a lot of fun. There were more than 1000 people having a time of their lives. I just wish that the party had gone on and on into the wee hours as 3am was just too early to wrap up that night. The music, ambience had really set the mood right to keep on partying till sunrise. Hope there will be more such parties in the future. Ram Sadhvani Membership No. 3038

Ienough to write about this

cultura, nostalgic trip organised for ladies by our India Super Club. We had a breakfree journey, from home and daily routine. The best part was that on our way we were playing Antakshari which we have not played in many years after school. Our first destination was the Sheikh Zayed Mosque. It is a must visit place. The architecture is awesome, very

well made with marble, mosaic, pearls, semi precious stones, and pure gold. The outside floor is made with the marble that absorbs heat and keeps it cool. From the exteriors to the carpeting to the interiors to carvings everything is just Lajawab. The building material has been imported from 53 different countries and people from 28 different countries all over the world have participated to make this incredible monument. Our next stop was the royal Emirates Palace. After this we moved to Abu Dhabi corniche although we did not spend time there as it was a bright sunny day. The last stop was Abu Dhabi Marina Mall where we stopped for lunch and some nice shopping. We were pepped up and charged to face our daily grind with a fresh view. We encourage the club management to organise more such trips. It was not only a fun trip but an informative one and after living for so many years in the UAE, so many places are unexplored and unseen. India Club rocks and so do we! Keep Rocking!

A

kids seminar on developing a positive attitude was conducted by Ms. Sharon Monteiro on the 9th of January 2010. Sharon is a life coach, Motivational Speaker, Quiz Master and a budding author. Over forty kids attended the seminar. Every individual has their own conversation going on in their heads. This dialogue is commonly referred to as self talk. Sharon explained how positive self talk and the language you choose can shape the way you perceive reality. A very interactive seminar with fun and laughter, she asked the kids to flush down all negative self talk and beliefs. She made the kids aware of how they speak to themselves, to identify the neagtives and close them down, thus freeing them to focus their time and energy on more positive and productive approaches.

cultural trip was organized to Abu Dhabi, the capital of UAE, on Wednesday, 20th January 2010.

Forty ladies boarded the 10 am guided tour of the Sheikh Zayed mosque. After donning the abayas and hijabs they were guided around, to marvel at the architectural excellence of the third largest mosque (the 1st and 2nd largest being the holy mosques in Mecca and Medina) in the world. The ladies got an opportunity to enter the mosque which boasts of 82 domes, 4 tall minarets, the largest chandelier and largest carpet woven by ladies, in the world. The coolness of the Italian marble used in the wadhu khana, a place to wash before prayers and the inlaid semi precious stone in the interior of the mosque made everyone feel very proud to be part of the UAE. The Holy Quaran recital could be heard continuosly at the grave of Sheikh Zayed where prayers were offered for his departed soul. Then an hour of an educational tour gave a deep insight into the religion of Islam coupled with joy and happiness and a great sense of self fulfillment and achievement. The trip continued onward to the Corniche, the Emirates Palace Hotel and finally the Marina Mall with two hours of free time.

The spinal cord is one of the most amazingly designed structures in nature. It forms the center piece of the human body, providing strength and stability which allows man to walk up straight, while also offering a wide range of movement to the body in motion. Sedentary lifestyle, driving, travelling, stresses (both emotional and physical), over- stretched muscles, and postural mistakes are the main cause to the widespread problem of back pain. Body mechan-

ics is extremely important to heal back pain. Yoga is a safe and effective way to get rid of back problems and to prevent it from recurring. Stretching and twisting the spine increases blood circulation which helps in healing injured tissues. It also helps to maintain a natural curve of the spine which is important to avoid back pain. Stretching stimulates our internal organs and nervous system. It enhances flexibility which improves your physical performance and mental-well-being as well.

India Club

here are very few things in life, that leave you completely awestruck. Meeting the President of India at her office in the Rashtrapati Bhavan, definitely qualifies as one. Top that with a sumptuous meal and a tour of the Presidential Palace and we have an unforgettable event happening in our lives. The tour of the Rashtrapati Bhavan was like wading through our history. Memories of what we have studied in school, like the platform from where the Indian civilian awards are given, exotic lotus shaped fountains at the Mughal gardens, the president’s museum, the grand Ashoka room, the fountain sculptures of the cobras at the entrance, the majestic red sandstone jallis, the intricately designed gold murals on the ceiling corridors and, so much more came flooding back. It is difficult to enumerate all of them as they, just took one’s breath away with the sheer grandeur of the moment. Memories always nudge our delicate nostalgic underbelly. When we think of India’s history, the most endearing part is the tradition and culture that we inherit. This integral part of

our lives stays uncorrupted even as time wears on. We should learn to respect and nurture such enduring treasures for the forthcoming generations because that is the only thing which will preserve our national identity. At the Club, we try. The only thing I can add is that a trip like that only enriches ones’ life and is bestowed only on a lucky few. Chaat Chowk has elicited a great response and the brighter colors outside the Coolsportz and Ashoka Complex are giving the Club a fresher look. The pathway from the TT room to the Ashoka Complex entrance is due for refurbishment next and will follow the same pattern which is outside the Coolsportz complex. The list of affiliated Clubs to various cities in India continues to grow and Club members can avail of various facilities of upto 30 Clubs in major cities all over India. We welcome your com-

ments and suggestions and are always keen to know how we can better ourselves to offer you improved services…
