Sandeep Chauhan from Paonta was very frank: he gave up his LLB training because of his stammer! Sahil, a young child of about 12 was very shy, today, his first day. Surendra and Pawan and Nishu were also there in the meeting today. Surendra and Pawan helped by sharing their stories with Sandeep – and Nishu helped by working with Sahil.
Later, Nishu spoke to Zeshan (Lahore) on skype while I counseled Prahlad from a village in Haryana in the same room. It was a little confusing but we got it alright eventually! Zishan is full of initiative and spirit of Self-help. I wish there were more like him. He is just about 15-16, but he searched the web and came across a TISA video on youtube and sent an email to sachin. Since then, he has been very punctual and proactive in these online sessions. He is working hard and God willing, he will improve his communication soon, come out of the mindset imposed by society and do well in life.
Pawan and Surendra are inching their way closer to Vipassana, it seems.
Yesterday, Kishore spoke to both sachin and Zeshan on skype. See the pic above. This is certainly the friendly face of IT. Not to forget, it was Anuj who kept reminding me (sachin) that skype can help us with online counseling. Thank you Anuj!
