Dr. Philly Karani, brother of Burlington Breakfast Rotary member Zareen Karani Araoz, has received the Rotary International Service Above Self Award for 2021-22, the highest recognition from Rotary International.
Dr. Karani dedicated much of his life to serving through Rotary.  He was the District Governor and also served on the RI Rotaract Committee, among others.  He was very loved by the members of the Club he founded in Pune, India.  He did and inspired hundreds of projects there, uplifting the condition of many and transforming lives, leading a long-term project to adopt a village and bring all amenities to it. 
He continues his good work in New Zealand, since the past 8-9 years.  He has attended one of our District Inauguration dinners during one of his visits here.  Dr. Karani would welcome meeting and helping any Rotarian from our District visiting New Zealand!  Congratulations Dr. Zarani!  You are a true inspiration!
