informed about it earlier to all members. But only Pradeep was there at the
decided venue. Pradeep is a student of Mtech.He is regular for shg’s.Our venue
was SGS MALL, M.G ROAD,PUNE.We both reached the mall by 11am.Pradeep asked
about my coorg trip.He asked what you learn from the get together.We both had a
talk about coorg till 11.30 am.But to my surprise no other member came. Then we
both decided that we are here to do some voluntary stammering ‘toh challo lets
do it’. Few months ago I had performed same kind of activity in some
mall. So i have little bit knowledge about voluntary stammering. I explained
pradeep what we did last time,how we talked with people,what questions to be
talk. We noticed that a young boy was sitting alone. We decided to target him
first. I started excuse me sir are you free? Can we talk for 2 minutes? He
replied i am waiting for someone, till that person comes we can talk. I and
pradeep sat on chairs in front of that person.
Then i asked him do you know what is stammering? .He said no.We have to
show some demos then he come to know what is stammering.We also gave
introduction of TISA to him.
person who stammers? His answer Ya one of my friends has a problem of
stammering. We then asked how you treat your friend who stammers. He said like
a normal person,I don’t have any problems with person who stammers it is just
the way how a person speaks I focus more on content. He also told that he never
makes fun of his friend who stammers. Then we started talking, the problem is
that some people cooperate with us but some not. At this he make a comment that
those persons who cannot cooperate with people like you are people with No
minds, you are having problem of stammering but you may be strong in some other
things.Finally we told him that if you come across any pws make them aware of
TISA. Then he asked our names. We also asked his name. His name was Zen. The
talk ended with firm handshakes. The talk lasted for around 15-20 minutes.
we started the activity without the presence of any senior members.
you free. Can we talk for some time?he said yes. Then i started do you know
what stammering is? He said no. I and pradeep were blocking while asking
questions. I simply replied the way by which we are talking is known as
stammering .Stammering is a kind of speech habit in which what happen is he/she
may get blocks while talking, he may repeat some words many times. Then we asked him do you know anyone
who stammers he said no. He was not aware of what stammering is and he doesn’t
even any person who stammers. Then we told him about TISA Also told him we are
just here to make people aware of stammering. We also told him that if you come
across any pws tell him/her to search TISA on google.Later we bid him thank you
and continue our search for next person.
.A old person was shopping. We directly go to him. Before we start he told that
I am not salesman here. Then we told we just want 2 minutes then he asked
regarding what. Then we told him stammering. He replied my son also stammers
and he is working in some bank in Bangalore. He also told that whenever his son
is in tension or depression he stammers more. Then we asked how you deal with him?
He told we only motivates him and boosts his confidence. Then we told him about
TISA .Then he asked for some contacts.
He took out some diary kind of thing then I wrote the websites of TISA
in that diary. Then we thanked him.
take 2 minutes of yours? One of the ladies replied yes. Pradeep asked do you
know what is stammering. She replied we are some medical fields we know what
stammering is. Then she asked what your intentions are. We told them that we
are here to make people aware of stammering. At this she said stammering is not
a big issue the pws makes it a big issue, she also said generally pws are more
conscious that may be reason for their stammering .She even said it’s a good
thing that such associations are there who makes people aware of this. We
thanked both of them.
