That Wannabe Good Boy

I was merely 5/6 years old and the first time I got to know that I may have pronounced something incorrectly when our milkman asked me where I would go that day because I was all dressed up. I don’t remember what I said exactly but strangely after that day he used to ask me […]

A bunch of Ducks!

The pandemic has taught us a lot of lessons. One big lesson is, we can make things happen virtually. This year, TISA took that challenge and planned our most awaited event- the National Conference entirely virtual. After a lot of planning, discussions and rehearsals- we pulled it out very well. The 5 days of NC […]

शिकायत किसलिए?

मैं शिक्षा विभाग में काम करता हूं और दिव्यांग बच्चों को पढ़ाना मेरे काम का हिस्सा है। कोरोना महामारी के प्रकोप के चलते सभी स्कूल पिछले 6 महीने से बंद हैं। इसलिए सरकार ने ‘‘मेरा घर, मेरा विद्यालय अभियान’’ चलाया है। इसके तहत शिक्षक बच्चों के घर पर जाकर पढ़ाते हैं। मैं भी दिव्यांग बच्चों […]

What have we learned? – (हमने क्या सीखा?)

What have we learned? Experts on Change management in Industry believe that only “learning” organizations survive the rapid technological developments in the world today. Organizations which quickly read the signs (“on the wall”), spot the opportunity (“in the challenge”), and are comfortable with uncertainty, do the best in these times. TISA in its own small […]

Stammering in front of a 10 year old

Yesterday I went to a friend’s place where I met a 10-year-old kid. We started talking and he told me his name and school and which book he is currently reading. It was Harry Potter and the philosopher’s stone. I now experience that when I was talking to him, I was trying not to stammer. […]

NC 2020 : मिथक को तोड़ते स्वयं सहायता के प्रयोग

मैं हर साल तीसा द्वारा आयोजित होने वाली नेशनल कान्फ्रेन्स का बड़ी ही बेसब्री से इंतजार करता हूं। इस बार 2020 में भी मुझे उम्मीद थी कि किसी नए शहर में जाने का, नए लोगों से मिलने और हकलाहट के कुछ अनछुए पहलुओं को समझने का मौका मिलेगा। मार्च 2020 में कोरोना महामारी के कारण […]

Another Diversity…

Left is Right! By Amit Singh Kushwaha “Yes, I am left-handed!”. My unconscious mind prefers to do any work with the left hand. Sometimes, people wonder when I write or sign with my left hand. I recall in my childhood; grandmother taught me to eat with the right hand. At that time, I realized, there […]

ह्रदय चीर के राम सिया का

( हास्य ) जब मै बच्चा था , तब अक्सर भजन की ये पंक्ति सुन कर मुझे बहुत दुःख होता : हनुमान जी ने आखिर ऐसा क्यों किया? मै  इलाहबाद में बड़ा हो रहा था।  भजन सुनने के  मौके अक्सर मिलते रहते थे।  आज कल बच्चे सुपरमैन के करतब देख कर बड़े होते हैं और हम […]

My Story – Naveen Deshmukh
