Amitabh does it..

Friends- watch this episode of KBC:

A pws plays the game and shares his story. Beautiful.
Amitabh tries to complete his words at couple of occasions- but on the whole, the entire program was conducted very well- in a very genuine fashion. Amitabh too, is very supportive through out. The question of high fees for speech therapy comes up. When Mahendra uses “phone a friend” option- Amitabh very politely offers to do it for him. Why? was it because of tight time frame? Did Amitabh fear that there may be mis-communication? Going by the program, Mahendra could have asked the question himself..IMHO.
Letting a stammerer do his own talking, his own act, his own thing- for media to offer them such a space- is still a distant dream in India, where stereotypes rule supreme- but even this is a HUGE progress and TISA sincerely thanks Sri Amitabh Bachchan and KBC..
I think media should show more such people in such positive/ natural/ unbiased light..

    I just watched the episodes… very well done… Amitabh was supportive…. And I personally dont feel it wrong that Amitabh helped him in Phone A Friend. There is no problem taking help in such particular occasions…. Thanks Sachin Sir for sharing this..

    Wow!! Things are surely changing slowly slowly! I think as more pws start talking about stammering, society will automatically become more aware, and who knows may be in 100th episode, if there is a PWS, the host may give him 2 minutes for phone a friend 🙂

    I watched this KBC episode with my friends and tell them how a stammerer suffers when real life? Very nice support by Amitabh bacchan and good thing is that society accepting us.

    One good thing of Mr. Mehendra I watched that he also accepted his stammering and stutter openly on a big stage.
    second thing.. He says he want to work for young pws with this KBC earning.
