Hi! My name is Harihara Subramanian.V. I am 51 years old and live in Madras, India.

I am very fond of Limericks.

Most of the Limericks which I enjoyed were too raunchy to share with children and other family members. So I thought why not write some myself.

I was a Rotarian between 1986 and 1998 with the Rotary Club of Madras East (RI Dist 3230). I also had the honour of leading this club as its President during the year 1990-91. For a brief period, when I was working in Bombay, I was a member of Rotary Club of Mulund. (RI Dist. 3140).

Writing Limericks for Rotary was a challenge as it had to cater to various tastes without offending any one.

The following collection will give you you some idea.

Most of these were published in 'Eastern Bridge', the weekly bulletin of the Rotary Club of Madras East.

If you are a Rotarian, I will welcome your original Rotary Limericks. Even if you are not a rotarian, and love writing Limericks on general subjects please send me so that I can share them with my friends.

A Sampler



This is just a sample. More in following pages.

There was a Rotarian from a certain town,

Who went around in his dressing gown.

When asked, "why so dressed?"

He replied, only when pressed.

"This way I'll never be caught with my pants down!"
