Meeting started with quick introduction round (Name, place, occupation and hobbies)
Nikhil explains Iceberg model to newcomers and we had the small questionnaire.

We introduced TISA to newcomers and make them aware of basic rules about TISA like

  • Acceptance
  • stammer freely
  • avoid giving advice to anyone
  • be a good listener, never interrupt anybody while he/she is talking
  • TISA don’t support or promote anyone who claims to cure stammering

Calling justdial /customer care:
We created the group of 3 or 4 for this activity.
Nightmare isn’t it?? To call customer care or to call justdial to inquire about something. We did this today …yayyyyyyy
we irritate customer care or justdial without hesitating and we were not in hurry to end call really.. 😛 till the time, Nikhil reminds us about time.LOL. Today even I realized if you stammer confidently without hesitating, the person next to you will surely listen to you.
