The one aspect I love the most about winters is- morning sunshine. Wait, it’s not over yet. All the PWS from Dehradun SHG along with Dr Sachin, lush green lawns of Gandhi park, lots of food and drinks, and the mesmerizing weather of Dehradun! A perfect get together!

Delhi SHG Report | 23rd October Meeting, ISAD 2016

TISA Delhi SHG Weekly Meeting Report written by Sunoy Garai

23 October, 2016, Sunday


Full album link is here :

The meeting was held at India Gate this time. The host Mr. Dinesh Kumar Ola suggested a different

venue this time as he thought that there would be a variety of strangers at India Gate and we

stammerers could build some confidence by talking to the strangers, especially foreigners.

The meeting started at 11 a.m. and was attended by eight Delhi SHG members, Dinesh Kumar Ola

(Host), Vikas Ranga (Co-host), Sunoy Garai, Madhav, Anurag, Anurag Mishra, Vivek Maurya and

Prajwal. The meeting started with a brief introduction of every member, especially focussing on the

positives and negatives of one’s personality. Mr. Ola, the host, suggested that this meeting would be

one of a kind where members could talk freely without any fear and sharing any funny or

adventurous incidents with other members. Unlike other meetings, this meeting was kind of

unplanned, but ironically that turned out to be a very good thing as the rounds were decided on the

spot with everyone’s views and the meeting turned out to be one of the best meetings.
