“Oh, same Intro round?!”
“Is it Vol. Stam. or Bouncing? Aren’t they same?”
Well, facilitating a session and leading a SHG can be as difficult as being Academic In charge for a Post-graduate course in Mathematics! We need to constantly LEARN, be creative and be good at HELPING others learn (not just “lecture” them!). Not just tell them “what it is like” – but coaching them to explore it on their own. At times, it might as well be like taking unwilling horses to..!! (you know rest of it :). But this art is not “Black Magic”. One CAN learn it by applying oneself. Mohit Dwivedi has been applying himself consistently for last two years or so – beside doing theater and many other interesting things in his young life! We decided to make a documentary highlighting various “skills” which make up core competency for a good SHG Coordinator (Fluency is NOT in this list of competencies..!!):

I wish to thank everyone in Dehradun SHG, especially Adarsh, Ravindra, Dayal and Mohit.. Can we encourage other SHGs too, to share such videos?
