Hum Saath Saath Hai (Goa SHG Report)

Left to Right: Siddharth, Prajyot, Rajesh, Harish, Dnyanesh, Manoj & Vikas
Yes, we were together again, and we were seven of us J.
Everyone was excited, because we were meeting after a
gap. Manoj, who was in touch with our group on Whatsapp, was coming for the
meeting, and we were getting to meet him for the first time.

We had a planned and structured agenda as always. Rajesh and I had decided to spend some time to discuss on a format and
structure for our upcoming meetings. We also decided to have a timed meeting
this time, so that we have enough time for all the planned activities.

We started with positive sharing. Everybody in the group
shared one recent incident in their lives that was positive. Each sharing was
followed by claps and celebrating the achievements.
After that, it was the education session. Rajesh shared
his approach on how he deals with stammer- challenging himself to join clubs /
organizations which would result into more speaking opportunity- like Toastmasters
and BNI (Business Networking International). He shared how (and what) he
practices every hour a day, early in the morning. The message that Rajesh gave
to all of us is- Discipline is a key factor in our path to recovery.
Manoj, who was attending the meeting for first time shared
a few of his experiences, some funny and some motivating. Manoj works in Coast
Guard (Navy) and is currently posted in Goa.
Vikas talked about his experience of talking part in
Toastmaster contest, and how he went on to win it and how he felt before and
after each feat.
I (Harish) then shared my experiences of the first two
National Conferences- the experience of travelling alone for first time (Goa –
Orissa), meeting many other PWS, the adventure in Coorg and listening to other’s
stories. I also shared a couple of stories from fellow participants I had heard
during the National Conferences.
Then, it was time for a round-robin discussion. The topic
for today was- “How to come out of those moments when one feels down?” Everyone
shared their opinions. Again, this was timed.
Finally, to end with, each one of us took a resolution.
Some of the resolutions were-
Disciplined daily practice of comprehensive
breather and speech techniques.
Eagerly taking up speaking situations like
telling a joke to a group, introductions, etc.
Join organizations/clubs where you get regular
speaking opportunities.
Sharing on whatsapp about daily speaking
successes or challenges.
