The Perfect Stutter

In seventies England, a young man who stammered and dropped out of university for that reason, writes a manuscript and posts it to his father. He just wanted to explain his strange decisions to his ‘uncomprehending’ father. Years later, he returns home on his father’s death, having earned university degrees in Psycholinguistics, Speech Therapy and […]

Blessed Mistakes

If mistakes are the essential part of normal process of learning and growth, let us acknowledge them and give them their due. Right? I am beginning to see that they have taught me a lot- but mostly at the subconscious level. Let me talk of some such events consciously. One incident comes easily to my […]

Reflections

An old TISA friend recently shared some deep thoughts with us: I wanted to share some of my experiences, where I had moments of realisation of how a changed attitude (which I acquired due to TISA) can make a huge difference in one’s life. To cut the long story short- I have joined as a Partner […]

Life beyond the stammering

After joining The Indian Stammering Association (TISA) I met many people who stammer in different parts of the country.

Truths in the Mirror

Solitude: Reflections

My first reaction was- Oh My God! Then, in a few days time, I became used to the comfortable pace of my life under the lockdown.  Initially I tried to learn this, practice that, listen to this or watch that – because I thought I have so much time and I must put it to […]

Loss and Gain

“माई री मैं कासे कहूँ पीर अपने जिया की … मदनमोहन का ये पुराना गीत, विभावरी आप्टे की आवाज़ में सुन कर मेरी आँखें भर आई, सुबह सुबह ! कई दिनों से ऐसा ही कुछ हो रहा है | कोई दो महीने बीते हैं, मैरियन को गुजरे |  जैसे मैंने दूसरी बातों को स्वीकार करना […]
