the hustle and bustle of the festive season, when tourist inflow in Goa is at
peak, seven PWS met at the Bhagwan Mahavir Park at Campal, Panaji. Zubin, a PWS from
Goa but presently working in Chennai, was scheduled to attend his first meeting
with us. He was in touch with us on WhatsApp group.
agenda for the meeting was set planned as follows:
Impromptu speaking sessions
Speech by Zubin
Speech by Harish
A story narration by Rajesh
Resolutions and Goals for the next year.
all started with our regular ritual of talking about self. Even if we all know
each other, we do make it a point to start with introductions- but today we had
Zubin, about whom we wanted to know, and vice versa.
then hosted a very interesting and fun-filled impromptu speaking sessions.
Vikas threw funny and hilarious topics and gave challenging but fun situations
for role plays. I (Harish) played the carefree employee who doesn’t complete
his work, while Dnyanesh played my strict boss, Prajyot and Nagnath played a
humourous scene where the shop-keeper gives ‘toffees’ instead of change, Rajesh
played a forest officer trying to explain girls not to litter waste on the
ground, and Zubin played a PWS attending an SHG, but getting distracted by the
girls, and trying to excuse himself… thankfully Zubin chose to end the scene by
choosing to be in the SHG.
came the speeches. Zubin started with his amazing speech of how he accomplished
some goals- of travelling to a new place and trying an adventure, and then
explained how he went about accomplishing it- that is, how he went to USA and
actually did sky-diving. Phew! Zubin is one adventure-freak!
then delivered a speech titled – “Yeh Hai Mumbai Meri Jaan”, which was about
the nervous incident he experienced in Mumbai, while travelling from
Bhubaneshwar to Goa, and how he almost missed the flight..! Another adventure J
then had all of us inspired. He narrated a story from the chapters of History,
about the brave Shivaji Maharaj. His expressions, sound effects (horses
running, cannons blasting) and the narration really re-created the entire
incident right in front of our eyes!!
we all made resolutions with regards to our recovery, communication and doing
something about our stuttering mindset. Nagnath, Prajyot and Dnyanesh had some interesting sharing too along with the resolutions.
that was the end of the adventure for the year, and we all look forward to the
adventure in store for the New Year!!
one and all, a very happy new year in advance!!
