This is decided meeting not official meeting just Mr. Arun Kumar old TISA member when he came from duty we do meeting in North Delhi. He is working in Indo Tibetan border force as Sub Inspector. He has good command in his acceptance. So when he came in holiday for few days then we do meeting except holidays to challenge our weaknesses. So Arun Kumar announced meeting on 10-Nov-2018 morning that we do meeting today just to practice stranger talk only. So I accept his offer and I reached to the venue around 05:45 as official time was 05:30. I called Arun and he said he not expecting me so he also not came but he assure he definitely come. I wait for him for 20-25 minutes and he came. Then we started our meeting.
First we start casual discussion as we both are available in the meeting and we did so many times this type of meeting here. So we start with casual discussion related to stammering what sort of difficulties we are facing in work place with stammering and how we manage this and also Arun kumar shared that he also work in remote area in Indo Tibet Border Force and many times he alone go for stranger talk as many times due to posting in remote area he unable to attend any meeting for months. So he many time go to market place from his posting to do stranger talk. So once upon a time he was going to a park around 10km far from his posting. So he inform his colleagues for this as he is going to stranger talk then his colleagues replied him that Arun these stranger talk never ever help I inform you so many times but you not able to understand forget these TISA and stranger talk and join and speech therapy. As he explain to all his colleagues about stranger talk and TISA but nobody is understanding this that this is not curable and all his colleagues think that this stranger talk is waste of time.
