Abhishek, Umesh, Pinakin and Tijo Thomas. Tijo was a new member who was planning
to take speech therapy but on suggestion of mr. Nitin tomer, he joined our
group. He might surprise to see what weird things we do there. Tijo had mild stammering problem and I really appreciate
his good listening skills and positive approach to listen the severe
stammering. This meeting was after a long gap for me (after Tisa’s workshop on
22 oct). Today when I was preparing to go in meeting, a thought came in my mind
-“Theek se haklaye bhahut din ho gye, aaj haklane jana hai”. Actually this line
told by my one of mine friend in delhi workshop ( name dosn’t need to mention
otherwise he will be more happy). Ok, so what we did this time. After little
introduction of everyone, first we shared our experiences after workshop in our
daily life. What new challenges and changes we were feeling now? Then we did a
round of voluntary stuttering. After this, we made a group discussion on a
topic “Is stuttering should be declared a disability or not in India?” as we
know, it also ended without a good conclusion.
rate. Each of us read a book for a minute one bye one; and find our speaking
rate high or low. One last activity, that I can’t miss to mention here.
Sikander sir told us to go to a group of girls to educate them about
stuttering. Everyone step behind, I gave excuse that I can’t go because these
are beautiful girls ( mujh jaise handsome ladke ki tho bejajjati hi ho jayegi).
Parmendra took the initiative and approached them to speak. I was watching him
by nearby. Once he stuck badly on a word and one girl started to laugh but he
did not lose his courage. Spoke again and told them what they should do if they
talk to any other like him. Immediately girl shut up and feels sorry. I appreciate
his guts and gave a pet on his back. We missed Lalit and gaurav.
