DEHRADUN SHG MEET 23rd AUGUST, 2015
So on 23rd August, 2015 we had two new members added to Dehradun SHG (I’m very happy !!). Mr Dinesh Kumar Soni, our macho man of Allahabad and Mr Shubham Khanduri, a 3rd year B Tech student from Dehradun. Other than these two, Ashish, Parvez and Mohit were present.
As usual, we started with the introductions. Dinesh told us about his education, work, family, stammering experiences. Similar was the case with Shubham. Both were pretty much excited and this was true as they were present in the next meet as well !!
Then we had an activity which I hope everyone enjoyed, This was a 2 people role play activity. Here, two people performed an act on a given situation. Shubham and Ashish did a fantastic job of playing the characters of a customer and a vegetable vendor respectively. Parvez and Dinesh pulled the act perfectly of a driving license seeker and a corrupt government employee. The way Dinesh did the act, it seemed as if he is certainly a corrupt officer !! (Sadly, this is not true !!) Mohit had to go solo as there was no partner in crime ! He scolded the students for not performing upto the expectations of their Kathak teacher.
Then everyone was asked to voluntarily stutter on their name, address and phone numbers. The facial expressions, undoubtedly, were the best I have ever seen !!
Then we had and intellectual discussion on the topic of SMART CITIES. And I must admit that the points put up by all the participants were really good. Some of the points were –
- Cleanliness of the city
- Cleaner fuels for Public transport. Upgrading the public transport.
- Inclusion of Metros and Mono Rails.
- Setting up of Technological parks, wi fi connections, making paper work digital.
- Setting up of ITI for training youths in various skills.
- Proper layout of city roads, drainage pattern.
- Curb on the enroachment of lands and forests.
