The meeting was attended by four warriors of Dehradun- Dayal Dhapola, Ashish, Parvez and Mohit. Parvez is a new member of Dehradun SHG and we welcome him in the prestigious family of TISA.
So Mohit was the first one to reach ON TIME at the venue. 😛 Then Parvez arrived well on time. Dayal and Ashish were late for the meeting but they were humble enough to admit their fault. So they are excused. 😀
We started with the introduction round. Each PWS introduced himself quite nicely. Then, as we had a new member, we decided to elaborate on some techniques like Acceptance, Bouncing, Prolongation, Breathing and Pausing with pppppractical e-e-e-examples. This was done by the “pro” members of Dehradun SHG. Parvez was attentive enough to recollect the facts and present them.
Then we decided to speak about our favorite actors from Bollywood and sing a song to finish it in a melodious way (not so melodious though 😛 ). Emraan Hashmi was on top of the list of Parvez (well I have no objections 😀 ). Ashish was too much attached to SSSShah Rukh Khan. Dayal is too socially responsible so he chose Amir Khan, Mohit was all in awe of Hrithik Roshan (Hamara Bhai 😀 ).
Then we had a debate on- Yakub Memon Death Penalty. Ashish and Parvez took a FOR stand while Dayal and Mohit chose AGAINST. The main motive was to emphasize on our facts and examples rather than fluency. And we were quite successful I guess.
Then we decided to have a strangers talk. It was a first for Parvez. He was excited and nervous at the same time. But he did good. He talked about stammering, TISA, persons views and suggestions. Dayal is always amazing on Strangers talk and thats why its his favorite activity. It proved well enough as he was talking to 10 strangers at a time ! So kudos to Dayal !
Lastly, we had a group picture as a proof of our meeting 😛 . We vowed to work hard for the expansion of Dehradun SHG and reach out to all the stammerers of Dehradun. Till then, Goodbye and Haklao Magar Pyaar Se…..
