Sun couldn’t stop us …and neither will stutter
SHG meeting on last Sunday 24th April was like watching your
favorite movie for 10th time. Familiar waves of 
emotions and nostalgia. In spite of knowing everything
  you realize that
there were many things you have completely missed time and again. That there is
always more to it than meets the eye and that the human struggle and effort knows no boundaries for survival and excellence.
This one was conducted under able leadership (read
supervision) of Shobit . Structured and coordinated it was but a meeting is not
complete without surprises.
Prepared Speeches
We began by prepared speeches. First to go was Amarnath( It
was his second speech in SHG). He beautifully explained 10 Tips for Stutters in
calm and cool manner.
Next was Shiva , he spoke about caution one should exercise in
forwarding unsolicited emails. He subtly drove home his point, to which we all
unanimously agreed.
Third speech was of Shobit. He brought up the reading as a
hobby so well that we all felt that we should really think seriously about it.
He was successful in luring us in 
the speech using story telling approach and bringing alive
the topic by adding so many examples.

We moved to next round of introduction.
Table Topic
 Followed by
introduction we had Table topic session where people spoke very well about
variety of topics.
Question Answer round
People asked questions to the one sitting next to them.
Questions where largely based on one’s interest, work and education.
We started with a casual line and took it forward by each
one of us adding one more line to it. We, the bollywood types ensured that the
story reached its conclusion with a positive ending.
School Collaboration
Shiva has brought an idea of SHG visiting schools for
awareness generation among children. We have asked Shiva to drop an email to
the group regarding this. Lets take it forward it future meetings.
Next meeting
Next meeting will be coordinated by Shiva and table Topics
will be provided  by Rajesh

    Great meeting!
    That point about reading books is very valid..
    I just finished "Suspect" by Michael Robotham. It was a very "rich" experience..
    Now, I have picked an author who may get a Nobel soon, if he hasn't received it already: Orhan Pamuk..(book: My name is Red)

    Going to school too is a wonderful idea. Play your TISA card well. Tell them that as adult pws, in different responsible positions in life, you are the right person to tell CWS as to what they can expect, hope and work for, in their own lives..Sharing your true stories.. This will have a lot more impact on them than teaching them some "technique"..

    Nice to see Dinesh in the group!
    Thank you Shobhit and everyone out there in the group..
    Yes, nothing should hold you back!
