Hi all .
I am M K harsh from bhopal madhya pradesh .
First of all , i will take you all to bengaluru NC ,because the story of organizing bhopal NC is connected to bengaluru NC .
Amit kushwaha sir ,on the last day of the bengaluru NC told me in the morning that “harsh we are going to host the next NC ,so please be ready for that .
I in my mind thought that ,how on earth we will host the NC,we have a very small team back in bhopal,but till then amit sir had already finalzed all the things .
Now the search for hotels began.
I personally had called 15-17 hotel managers , and had sended them our requirements on the mail .
Negotiating with the hotel managers , and calling them, explaining them our requirements was such a difficult task in the beginning but with the guidance of amit sir ,everything went well.
Around march end ,the venue was finalized .
I was just awestruck with the commitment of amit sir, that he had paid 20 thousand rupees from his own pocket ,for booking the venue .
That day i thought that if amit sir can pay 20 thousand from his own pocket ,then i have to only work hard for making it a sucesss .
Then we had opened the registration link on april 1st .
Here , i would like to thank our calling team , who had called each and every memeber of TISA and had told them about the NC.
Now ,i will tell you about the activities that were performed on all the three days of the NC .
1st day of NC -27/09/2019
The first day of the NC was started by meditation session .
Then the NC officially started from 9:30 AM with the welcome note by the bhopal SHG members .
Sachin sir inspired us with his short speech of 15-20 mins .
Our first guest speaker was Mr. Rampal Singh .
Rampal singh sir despite his one leg doesn’t function well , he is running his buisness brilliantly .
He told about his challenges , that how he was denied from a job because of his problem but he never chose never to give up.
In front of rampal sir’s problem ,our stammering is nothing.
Rampal’s sir session ended at 12 PM .
After the tea break , we restarted our session from 12:15 pm.
Next session was of open mic for those participants who had came for the NC for the first time .
Many participants had given their introductions,some had sang thier favourite song ,some showcased their dance talents.
Moreover,it was like an ice breaker session ,so that no participant should feel nervous,for the next three days of the NC .
We ended the open mic session at 1:30 PM ,from 1:30 to 2 PM there was lunch .
After the lunch there were parallel sessions .

parallel sessions were ended at 4 PM .
After the tea break , we had the prepared presentation session .

My learnings from the NC –
I was not having any idea of organizing such an event on such a large scale 12 months back
My biggest learning would be , that i had learned that how to organize such a large event under the guidance of amit sir .
We started from the very scratch and we succesfully organized the NC .
My second biggest learning was that , first time in my life i did the anchoring on the stage .
I stammered heavily but all the members listened to me patiently .
At last , i would like to thank all the senior members of TISA for the constant support and guidance .
Thanks for reading the long post pateintly .
