Dear Members of Inner Wheel District 319,

The clock has ticked by, the wheel has turned a complete circle and we are at the helm of yet another new Inner Wheel year, 2021-22. I extend a warm welcome to each one of you through this Mythri, the District Directory. Mythri, being the first publication of the year for Inner Wheel District 319, it gives you the theme, goals, aims and objectives and the direction to work in the year.

I am greatly humbled for being elevated to the post of District Chairman this year 2021-22, and for being given the opportunity to head this prestigious District 319. I extend my congratulations to the Sparkling Stars, the Presidents and all Club office bearers for the year 2021-22. Let’s move together , hand in hand in absolute harmony, making use of the opportunities we come across and keeping the flag of our District flying high.

International Inner Wheel President, Ebe Panitteri Martines has given us the theme “PINK FIRST” – Women helping Women is the orientation. Pink is the colour of universal love, friendship, affection and togetherness. The Social project from 2021-24 is ”STRONG WOMEN, STRONGER WORLD”. Association President Mrs. Saroj Katiyar has given us goals for this year aptly called “SHEREOS”, bringing out the Hero in every woman. Keeping in mind the International theme as well as the goals given by Association President, the overall emphasis this year would be on increasing opportunities for women, enabling and supporting women entrepreneurs, as we continue to focus on need-of-the-hour service areas such as Health, Environment, Orphanage and Old age, E-learning. With this we shall spread the wings of Inner Wheel to reach far and wide. Let’s be the Women in action to change lives and make a meaningful impact to make the world a better place.

This year, we also look forward to the Triennial Conference – ENVISION (Think- Implement- Achieve) to be held from 11th to 13th February 2022 at Varanasi, the abode of Lord Shiva. This is an occasion where inner Wheel members from all over India and few other countries meet in the presence of IIW President and Association President, to express and exchange views and amend the Association By-laws. Let’s register and participate in this important event.

I am extremely fortunate to have a wonderful star-studded team, the District Executive Committee members, and the guidance of our Galaxy of Past District Chairmen as we march ahead into the new year.
My heartfelt gratitude goes to the members of my home club, Inner Wheel Club of Bangalore South West, for their unstinted support.

I am thankful to Past District Chairman Vinaya Joshi for her unconditional support and guidance to improve this edition of the Mythri.

I take this opportunity to thank District Editor Ishita Seth for meticulously compiling this edition of Mythri.
As we pray for a healthier world, I am sure that you, as an Inner Wheel member, will strive to make “THAT” difference and “Leave a trail of sparkle wherever you go”.

Your friend in Inner Wheel,

Veena Niranjan
District Chairman 2021-22
