The Rotary Club Of Cochin
In the 1930’s, people, particularly of the West, when they thought of
India, they thought of the North, India of the mutiny; Kipling’s
India, of sacred rivers and splendid tombs, of hardy pathans and the
mysterious yogi. They landed in Bombay and travelled across to
Calcutta and the more adventurous to Delhi, seeing much, but missing
something too – The fertile hills and villages of Kerala fragrant and
warm and languorously prolific. The story of Rotary in Kerala is
almost synonymous with the history of Rotary Club of Cochin. It came
to Cochin on 26th September 1936 when the first interest meeting of 16
individuals was held at the Malabar Hotel. The landscape of Rotary
since then has become so vast, prolific and penetrating. On this
website, you will get glimpse of the rich history of the Rotary Club
of Cochin, the current activities of the club and our future plans.
