It was pretty hot day today unlike north India:) and it was awesome to see good strength in very first meeting of new year.
We started with slow reading of self help manual “Apna haath Jagnaath” for 1 hour. Then we had short introduction. Today seven members delivered prepared speeches in Toastmasters format. At end of prepared speeches evaluators gave evaluation report for speakers. For 2013 we are having agenda of having Toastmasters format speeches for 6 months so that every member can deliver 10 speeches.
After that we had table topic session, 3 minutes per speaker.So that members who did not give prepared speeches will get chance to speak. Nishil shared his vipassana course experience at end of meeting. We will be having more prepared speeches next week. See you all next week.
