The 10th session of Domina Angels was held on 5th April, 2014, at ‘Samudra Restaurant-Party Hall’ a (temporary) new venue identified, i.e. continued at the moment, until we find a more convenient one.

Other than the absentees (3 gavs) who were on leave (away in India on vacation) rest of the Gaveliers were present at the session, reporting on time. Well done Gaveliers… an essential personality value, being a qualitative learning through punctuality. All the gaveliers reported, being well prepared for their roles as advised by their mentors.

The session felt the missing of vibrant office bearer Sergeant at Arms Gav Adventina who is away in India. However, as a wise man said… ‘the show must go on’, accordingly a replacement was mentored to perform the duty of Sergeant at Arms. Gav Sharon Tiyana Menezes who stepped in, meticulously handled the task and called the meeting to order. Laudable role play Gav Sharon, Keep up the good work.

Upon the opening of the day’s session by the acting SAA formally through professing vision of the club, & the meeting regularities… the platform was handed over to the club President Gav Omari Prince.

President Gav Omari Prince presented the theme of the day ‘April’s fools’… in her usual creativenature and opened the session, transforming the serious formal atmosphere into a humour filled ambiance, as the theme called for…! Well inspired Gav Omari..

Upon the formal welcome note, she introduced the Gavelier of the Day Gav Steve Lobo, who took on the podium and furthered with the session.

The Gav. of the Day Gav Steve, though his outlook portrays as a reserved and serious person, he is an intelligent humourous and jovial self by nature. He presented the theme ‘April Fools’ with the facts. It was a bundle of information, he shared throughout the session. Practice makes Man Perfect… is simply not an adage to be referred…! but we need to inculcate in our activities… thereby we become confident and good presenters… So…, Gav Steve, you are a good presenter, but practice will develop you as a superlative confident speaker… This tip is for all the gaveliers. Every session is a learning experience to improve from what we are to what we are supposed to become!, but ‘Practice Makes Man Perfect’.

As, we have been practicing to inculcate the quality of mentoring and sharing in the Gaveliers, the assigned mentors and the role players performed their job scrupulously. Great going gaveliers… but always there is more space to improvement.

New comers are performing remarkably well, so are the regular Domina Angels.

At the reporting schedule of the Agenda, the General Evaluator Gav Phiyola took control of the session and called for the reports.

All the role players, including the General Evaluator presented their reports flawlessly, which were worth appreciating for their meticulous job. This establishes that the Gaveliers come well prepared and are persevering in their assigned roles. Great job gaveliers for performing your role aptly and kudos to the role mentors helping them to do a good presentation.

Session after session is proving the eagerness to learn. The innovative ideas introduced at every session so as to make it distinctively different for creating interest in learning, which is the objective of the mentors. Full attendance on record proves their earnest interest not want to miss even a single session, which connects them to this prestigious organization enhancing healthy networking abilities and spend some quality time for themselves. Great job is being done by the Counsilors taking their time out for these youngsters. An applaudable pat on their back for this selfless time and service.

The VP Education Rohit Kishore, took over the podium to set up the schedule and agenda for the next session. However, since few more gavelirs have to complete their P1-Ice Breakers, the Councilor TM Prescilla mentioned that the forth coming session will be yet another speech marathon session… and the evaluators / role players will be picked up instantly… therefore all the gaveliers are prepared to pop up from the hot seat to perform their impromptu role.
