"India and the US united on the silver screen - an Insight ! " Rotarian Dr. Uma Vangal, Visiting Professor of Film at Kenyon College
Dr. Uma Vangal Shivakumar is a filmmaker, critic, freelance journalist, media scholar and film teacher based in Chennai and has been a teacher of media/communication for nearly 20 years now. As Professor in the Direction Department and Head of the Media & Entertainment Department of LV Prasad Film & TV Academy, and a Visiting Professor of Film at the Department of Dance, Drama & Film, Kenyon College, Ohio, she considers herself fortunate to be teaching a subject that is her passion and profession.
India is the most prolific film-making nation while The United States is the biggest global film Industry in the world. While film going is on the decline In the US and stay at home audiences are on the rise, India continues to be a devoted film going nation. The two biggest democracies in the world with a common interest in visual narrative as our common interest, what makes us even more similar is the linguistic and cultural diversity of the two nations.
Join Leaders - Exchange Ideas - Take Action Join us Monday's at Noon at:
The Boat House at Confluence Park
President Tricia has talked to the membership since she took office about promoting the "swagger" of Columbus Rotary. Have you told anyone this week about the great things we do? Or invited someone to join you at lunch or at one of our events?
We have had 11 new members join us since July that were attracted by all we do and by who we are. (their pictures can be found on the new member board on Monday's). Welcome Stewart Gbenpelle, Mimi Tadesse, Lori Damron, Jon Mallory, Laura Weeks, Pablo Vegas, Renee Shumate, Clarence Mingo, Dennis Hetzel, Jim Duzan, and Halle Runion.
THANK YOU to the... 130 Rotarians who have PLEDGED $49,781.
Now is the the time to Get It Done for Rotary. More than half of our members have yet to donate to the Annual Services Campaign this year. Why is it important for us to have 100% participation in this campaign? 100% participation by the entire Club will help us to reach our $70,000 goal.
Each program, student, and individual that we serve needs our help. A successful campaign leads to continued support of our ongoing projects. Without this support, difficult decisions will need to me made regarding which programs to fund next year.
Columbus Rotary will assist the Salvation Army by ringing Red Kettle Bells at 2 Blue Jackets games again this year. Volunteers should arrive at the Nationwide Arena Tim Horton's at 5:15 pm the evening of the scheduled game and we will wrap up by 7:15 pm. We need 4-8+ volunteers per game! The dates to set aside are November 27 and December 4.
