Its always pleasure to meet you all & to read your all inspiring thoughts on this wonderful devotional site.
Yesterday was one of my most joyful day.Since more than one month i came to my lovely mumbai,i occasionally called Rommy &Prakash for the SHG meetings.During talks though it was formal talks,we all made a point to talk formally & then using our skills. 🙂
Yesterday prior to meeting, I deliberately skipped one of my official meeting & went straight to the place.
It was in Wadala Five garden,the place where most of the evening & memories happened during my teenage.( I turned 35 today but I’m still young at heart!!!!!! :D)
First came Prakash from Wadala station . by the time I called Rommy who was still in his Lower Parel office waiting to come at the venue.We met Amey Sawant after words.Then came Ravindra , Gaurav. Then came Laukik very young Engineering scholar. After words Dabhang alias Ritesh Yadav & Sachin came. . Rommy also joined last.
Formal intro was over we talked about our self.We laughed , we shared a jokes. We sat right in the middle of the garden making circle. One thing i would like to share here. All the people are very smart &good looking.I keep on telling Prakash that they all are our PWS models.Busy city like mumbai where no one cares for nobody exept there own work,we came for the purpose.
Dabhang &Sachine came from Badlapur,Rommy from Lower Parel,Ravindra &Gaurav from Central, Laukik from Thane, Amey from Grant road. Since I’m continuously on field, that day i came from Mahape.
Meeting starts , formal introductions are over. Rommy took a charge & told me to introduced my self for which I happily obliged. Then I Keep on talking about myself,my family,my precious moments & also some of the moments i did not shared to any body regarding my not so happy moments ( Harish knew what i talking about) &one moment i was carried away . I made myself comfortable & suddenly my eyes starts flowing . could not controlled my self. it was the most embarrassing moment but some times flowing with the emotions are better that holding it back.
All of them was listening to my boring story but one thing i must admit. These mumbai group has something very unique. They know how to listen.Some times listening your story will make you comfortable.
Thanks Mumbai Tisa for listening me… 🙂
We talked about attitude, we talked about fear ,we talked about practice,about various things.
Not only about stammering but in general ( Prakash also goin g to share his though,i suppose). Rommy then told Gaurav to call his best friend & told to confess about his stammering & to ask whether he has any solution. Gaurav,Laukik,Sachin,Ravindra , Prakash &Ameya called there respective friends &asked them to rate their stammering. We all waited for the outcome. &to all of our surprise ” No one felt that stammering is a BIG problem”. Every body knew that their friends is having a problem but its no big deal. Prakash’s friend even told him to repeat ” ALL ISS WELL” .HAHAAHAHA.
It was the most fun filling exercise. We had a good laugh &alos we learned that only we are making stammering more that it actually are. Stammering is just part of me . Just less than 1%. We PWS concentrating only our 1 % disability (Sorry guys to write this word but i could nit find any), but we are ignoring 99%positive thing which is also part of ourselves. Forget 1%, concentrate on 99%.
At 3.30 everybody started to move with a smile on their face.It was one of the most lovable SHG ,i enrolled in. I missed my GOA SHG & Harish & other GOA friends. But things we should move on & starts working for ourselves &the people we care for so much.
Friends if I’m carried away, then its OK to carried away for some times & also ITS OK TO STAMMER SOMETIMES.
Till then Over & out from Santosh…
