Meet the New Core Team Member - Mr Manimaran PDF Print E-mail

Manimaran, one of the five children to his parents, was born in 1958 at Cheyyar, Tamilnadu, a small town about 100 kms west of Chennai. He is a stammerer from childhood. His father was a Civil Engineer in a Govt department and was also a stammerer, though a little milder than his son. Due to frequent transfers of his father to various places, Manimaran studied seven different schools before completing S.S.L.C in 1973. During his school days, after narrating successfully the all English alphabets correctly from A to Z, he was given double promotion from 1st to 3rd Std.

As Manimaran always stood 1st in his class, bullying from other students because of his stammering was totally absent. He was very fond of Mathematics and scored a centum in Mathematics both in S.S.L.C as well as P.U.C. His father also had scored a centum in S.S.L.C Mathematics in 1948. Perhaps, like stammering, liking for mathematics is also hereditary!

Hiten Vyas PDF Print E-mail

Sitting in a circle around the teacher, 10-year-old Hiten Vyas couldn't get the words out to ask questions. He struggled, but his speech was blocked. He went home confused, but soon he knew. He had a stammer. In fear and anxiety, he sealed his lips. Ashamed, he hid his stammer even from his family. He remembers how at fifteen, every morning he would list situations he would have to speak in and avoid them. He wouldn't pick up the phone, wouldn't attend parties. He believed no girl would accept him. He was labelled shy. When he had to speak, he resorted to long pauses, chose words he could speak without a struggle, or finished the sentence quickly. At the hint of stammering, he took a breath and forced the words out. But his anxiety stayed. Stammering wrecked his confidence, plunged him in low self-esteem.

Hiten Vyas, PhD, is now a Life Coach and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Master Practitioner. And he definitely takes phone calls. His metamorphosis is a life lesson for all... Read more of this Hindu article..
