Morning is very cool as it was raining whole night. Cool breezes, fog and clouds are once again ready for wishing us Good Morning !
The hot water bath from wood fired pots are awesome. Nice experience to bath with that water. Spa kinda feeling ! Few people left for trekking up the hill and few people went down the hill and they came back with leaches in their shoes.
After all got freshed up we assembled in Kitchen and had an awesome breakfast with homemade bread-jam of Honey Valley’s. Breakfast includes Fruit salad, coffee, tea and milk.
The day’s activity started with JP Bros’ Nani-Pani activity. In this activity we all made a big round. The instruction for the game is when he says Nani we must jump backward where we are and if he says Pani we shall jump forward. He will confuse us with continues instructions like Nani-Pani-Pani-Nani in different patterns.So everyone shall jump accordingly if anyone fails he shall go out of circle and rest of the people will continue. Mr.Ravi stood till last so he won in that activity.
After this Ms.Aruna has played her flute.She played it so well that we were mesmerized in the melodious sound from here flute and stayed still in the drizzling sky.
We played another activity called Nai Bole coordinated by JP Bro.
After that we had speeches from our friends they shared their life changing stories,confidence is once again flowed with limitless boundaries.
We headed for lunch, good food ! We ate to the fullest 🙂
Post lunch we again started with members’ speeches, many people spoke about their stories. Everyone has inspired everyone in the group. We filled bucket full of confidence day by day from every member’s speech.
Dr.Sachin ji has come on skype live, he has given beautiful speech. He solved doubts of many people in the group. He told about acceptance and how it helps us in facing Stammering.
Among them SLPs like Mr.Satya Mahapatra , Mr.Vijay and Ms.Jayasurya spoke about Stammering and different approaches to deal with it.
We had great dinner after that, we cracked jokes and at same time we were unhappy too as some people are leaving after dinner. Slowly emotions were seen. We finally bid bye to few members.
After that we created souvenirs for ourselfs 🙂 Every member is given a white paper and asked to write his name on top. We left our papers on tables and now every member comes to every others papers and writes a testimony/ comment on everyone’s paper. Its a great thing to cherish with us. Really it will remain as the greatest gift for years from all members.
We thought to end the day with beautiful camp fire but rain was at its peak so we had a meeting in our cottages till 1AM. Discussions went on and on as we know next day we have to check out from Honey Valley. We spent much time in talking about acceptance in Stammering.
We went to beds late night.
Next day we got up early in morning and packed our things. We were headed down the hill using the jeeps of Honey Valley. In the jeep no one talked much to anyone. Everybody were so silent. We know we were missing the place and people too. As the jeep is sloping down our mouths turned too much silent. Just the sweet moments are rolling making us feel the missing moments.
We came to Virajpet bus station after taking a local bus. From there we headed to Mysore and from there we headed to Banglore in another bus. From there everyone wished and hugged each other for final Bye.
Finally after taking my bus to Hyderabad i have been thinking of many things. What i got from this National GetTogether is that a new angle of Acceptance. What we all did in the 3 days is we stammered at ease, we accepted Stammering and shared confidence and isn’t it all required in our Life. Very productive days we spent there. Today few members talked to me and even they were missing everyone a lot.
Miss you all 🙁
Together We Step Up Together We Succeed !
