Dear all

Today is June 21st, the 3rd Sunday of June. And we celebrate FATHERS' DAY today. It is the celebration and facilitation of our dear dad. And we tell him that "Dad, you mean the world to us". Fathers' Day is a day honoring fathers, It complements Mothers' Day, the celebration honoring mothers.But....

What really makes a dad?

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
And then there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it - Dad.

On this note, we say aloud.... HAPPY FATHERS' DAY. Click here to know more about Fathers' Day celebrations or here to ponder upon some Fathers' Day trivia.

June 14, World Blood Donor Day

Dear all

Millions of people around the world owe their lives to individuals they will never meet – people who donate their blood to help others. But millions more still can’t get safe blood when they need it. World Blood Donor Day, celebrated on June 14 every year, provides a unique opportunity to thank those very special people that help and to raise awareness about the need for more support.

Established by the World Health Assembly, this day marks the birthday of Karl Landsteiner, the Nobel laureate who discovered the ABO blood group system. There is broad international support to raise awareness of the need for safe blood around the world and encourage eligible individuals to donate blood regularly so that blood is readily available for all who need it when required.

World's Environment Day 2009

Dear all

Today, on June 5, The world sets out to celebrate Environment Day. Let us share something about it.

World Environment Day (WED) was established by the UN General Assembly in 1972 to mark the opening of the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment.Commemorated yearly on 5 June, WED is one of the principal vehicles through which the United Nations stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment and enhances political attention and action.

The theme for WED 2009 is 'Your Planet Needs You-UNite to Combat Climate Change'. It reflects the urgency for nations to agree on a new deal at the crucial climate convention meeting in Copenhagen some 180 days later in the year, and the links with overcoming poverty and improved management of forests.Click here or here to know more about it.

On this occasion, the E-club urges all to become active and true earthlings and not to remain as passive witnesses of our environment's devastation. Let's at least try to save all kinds of energy and resources that we so unconsciously tend to waste. Let's plant more and more trees and switch off the lights when not in use...Such small acts of ours can really prove to be a boon for our ailing environment. Share with us your ideas, on how can we, as individuals contribute towards making this environment live-able for ourselves and for the generations to come as well.
