report of 4th
meetup of year 2013.
– Chandan, Sairam, Kishore, Arun, Nayeem, Nishil, Couple Rahul and Pooja (new members)
started at sharp 10:30 am. This week meet was facilitated by Sairam.
Today we had the wonderful couple Rahul and Pooja joining us. They
are not PWS. They joined us to improve overall communication skills. We started with introduction where seasoned members
introduced themselves. This time the introduction had rules which
should contain the following
thought as these are the common things we need to always talk in our
day to day life.The
members did share a lot of things about passion and experiences.Nayeem used the
introduction session itself as the icebreaker where he discussed many
experiences with stammering and showed like how stammering has
enabled him to give the best at other things in life. He showed
through life experiences where stammer led to creativity and
punctuality in his work.
was a speech by Sairam talking about how acceptance plays a crucial
role in the life of a person who stammers. This speech basically
focused on how people without acceptance face fear which later turns
into frustration and leading to depression in life.Then there were table topics where all the
members got opportunity to speak for 2 minutes and it was fun filling
session where members added a bit of humour in their topics.
closed the day with a video which shows Earth from space as a tiny
was thought provoking video which made us realize if Earth is a dot,
then what about the human beings, what about the problems we face in
this world driving to the point that problems are nothing in this
world and we need to motivate ourselves in reaching our goals thereby
ensuring a happy life.
