Herbertpur 22nd August 2010

Thanks to Hetal (Surat), I had something worthwhile to share with our group. It was a video clip: Vinod Thakur in India talent khoj.

Surendra, Pawan, Vineet, Nishu and myself were there. Mid way through, we paused, where one of the judges says to Vinod : You exude a positive energy..

We paused and asked ourselves: what kind of energy we, the PWS exude in a typical interaction, most of the time? Pawan was quick and honest: by and large negative! We go around with lot of negative energy and keep infecting others, without realizing. No wonder that we turn out to be rather lonely, un-social people. Uncomfortable with ourselves and making others too, uncomfortable in our presence. This is something deeper than just “fluency” or even “communication skills”. Wherever we go, we carry our portable “fish basket”.

How do we free ourselves form this “victim/ persecution” mentality?
By accepting it, talking and writing about it.. doing something -anything, about it, rather than sulk and wait for the world to make “compensation” to us..

    Dear Sujit and Manohar
    Thanks for reading my posts and leaving thoughtful comments. I have a hypothesis (untested yet) that many PWS will move towards recovery if they did just THAT MUCH: reading posts and leaving comments :-))

    Well, that was a "sachinish" kind of joke! Dont take it seriously. But yes, your comments have certainly encouraged me to go on sharing and writing..

    Your post reminds me of one of the responses, a TISA member got to the question – "How do you feel when you are talking to a PWS?". The lady had a reply full of insights – "I will feel comfortable if the person is comfortable with his stammer but if he is uncomfortable, I will too feel the same"..You are doing a tremendous job sir…BTW you may never get a chances to retire
