Yes, we have named them 'Polio Warriors'. Two adventurous Rotaractors from Rotaract Club of Chandigarh, Gaurav and Deepak, were flagged from Hans Raj Public School, Sector 6, Panchkula, where the District RYLA also culminated today.
Past Rotary International President Raja Saboo along with Rtn Shubh Karn Gupta, past district governor and national committee member of the Rotary International's India National PolioPlus Society, flagged of the two young 'warriors' on motorbikes, to spread the message, that it is now that we must put our best efforts to end polio from our country.
Both Rotaractors would be traversing a distance of 8000kms in 25 days, touching Kolkata and Vishakhapatnam on the eastern coast to Kanyakumari down below, and Goa in the West where they would also be the main attraction at the three-day Rotaract conference, ROTASIA. The team would return around 21st January 2011 back home, which also happens to be the birthday of PolioWarrior Gaurav Gupta.
Gaurav is a final engineering student at UIET, PU, Chandigarh, pursuing BioTechnology, while Deepak is a first year BA student at DAV College Chandigarh.
