Bangalore SHG Sep 21, 2013 meeting report

Saturday is not weekend anymore
it is just the beginning for a exciting week ahead

The attendees were Akash, Sairam,
Navdeep, Dinesh, Anbu, Pramod, Abhinav, Naneshwer and myself
Nishil.This week’s coordinator: Akash

The meeting
started with reading , the topic was about fear.

  • Guess the Person – Next was the
    game of guessing the person whose qualities are described by someone
    else. This made us wonder if we are the persons what we think we are
    or the person which other people describe us to be . Time for some
    introspection !!!!
  • The next discussion turned on
    the way we react when people laugh when we stutter or make us
    uncomfortable when we speak. The plethora of experience among senior
    members and the new approaches to tackle this situation helped all
    of us present to look at the scenario objectively and choose the
    best way to handle the scenario.
  • Pictionary – Communication
    need not be necessarily oral, it can also be depicted by the things
    we depict using an as simple tool as an pen/pencil. This activity
    called upon the artistic skills buried deep within some PWS to
    showcase their talent of communication just with diagrams and rest
    describing the words he drew. Huff this was an herculean task after
    lots of charades to communicate with facial expression and hand
    signs, with the rival team using barrage of wild guesses to throw
    others off track the outcome was a satisfaction of guessing by hook
    or crook.
  • Group discussion – education
    should be by books or by practical experience
          1) On the practical experience side:
The practical experiences are the ones that can teach permanent
lessons, bookish knowledge hinders creative thinking, Everything we
learn has to be based on practical experience , without
internalization mugging up books has no sense.Truth heard from others may not be
for you , but the truth experienced by you is.
        2) On the books side: Books form the
base to perpetuate continued growth of knowledge. Whatever new that
arises has its base in the books. There is no point in reinventing
the wheel. The books are written by the experiences of leaned men
sharing their experience. Books are mines of information.
Kudos to Pramod who coordinated the
GD such that no person was left to find solace in silence.
Conclusion: The discussion brought
out the fact that just bookish knowledge would not help us get
in depth understanding of the mechanism in which any system works,
only hands on experience with proper background can help us to master
any field. Even practical experiences are limited by the amount of
time needed to assimilate information. Thus books help us to broaden
the horizons of our mind pushing the creative thoughts through new
bound and possibilities.
Thanks Akash for cooddinating such a
wonderful meet

    Thanks Nishil and Abhinav and everyone else for great meeting and write up..
    The title reminded me of another saying- may be it is relevant to our lives as well: There are no "sundays" in spiritual life..
