||Dear fellow members,
November saw a spate of golfing events at our course.
Starting with an Inter School Tournament sponsored by ‘Lalit Group’ under the aegis of the JTP committee, we had a 3 day ‘Noida Ladies Open’ organized by the Ladies Section, followed by another three days of ‘The President's Cup’ and finally, an Invitational Corporate event on the last day of the month.
Though, most of the golf playing members participated in these various events, few who chose not to participate, missed their daily round. There was bound to be some grumbling on this account. Overall, majority of golfers enjoyed the events and more so, the pre and post event festivities.
December, again, is a busy month.
Starting December 10, we will get to see approx. 125 top professionals of India battle it out over four rounds for top rankings. This PGTI event will be a treat to watch and an opportunity to witness top class golf. Quite a few of our own club pros will also be participating.
On December 20, North Zone finals of ‘Toyota IGU Inter club championship’ will be held, where again, our club team also will be in action.
Christmas to New Year will witness festivities all around including the ‘New Year Cup’ .
I am already hearing grumps and grunts from certain quarters.
Members are eagerly wanting similar improvement in other club facilities as witnessed on the course and I along with other members of the board are accosted by them very frequently on this issue.
My answer to them lies in the following narrative:
Friends, lately, a literary bug bit me and I read two books, one English best seller ‘Da Vinci Code’ which leads the reader through a labyrinth of mysteries which if decoded could shake the foundations of a certain faith and another, a Hindi one ‘Raag Darbari’ a very accurate reflection of state of affairs in our society. Both these books depict the intricacies & statecraft of stonewalling any reforms.
For the Science Buffs, it is easier to comprehend Newton's laws that state:
1) An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object in motion continues in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
2) For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action.
My stint as Captain has reinforced my scientific temper which was getting jaded over the years.
