Myriad Colours of Life experienced – One Theme at a time..

(Write-up by Nishil)


This Week SHG session in Bangalore set the
stage for yet another new milestone. Lots of action items on the table for the
members to choose and deliver. Here are the details of this epic meet. 

The session was coordinated by Sairam, this
is a new process wherein people can volunteer to coordinate a meetup, so that
they will get a hands on experience on people management.

The people in the meetup were


Emotional intelligence – The reading has
become a means to realize the potential of our voice, as week after week we can
see, the nervousness disappear in us, replaced with a strong sense confidence
in reading ,and command on the language. This has helped us grow out the
shackles of fear. This week we learnt about the emotional intelleigence……
atleast a part of it. The vocabulary used in the book was of high quality and
reading them was fun.

2:How to overcome fear:
The second part of the
meetup was were, we shared our opinion of fear and how do we plan to overcome
it. After hearing everyone’s thoughts sairam summarized  “Fear is something which all of us have to
face ,therefore we should not avoid anything we are afraid to do, we need to
take small steps to mitigate our fears rather than take a huge leap and maybe
fail and lose the courage to stand up again”. This fits the way we eat a hot
bowl of rice, we start eating the rice from one corner and take the center as
the final portion, otherwise we may end up burning our hand . 

3:Prepared Speeches:

Positioning System):- Thennarasu (Thenna) started off the prepared speeches
with his beautiful speech on GPS. The tracking device which we use in defense,
research, automobiles, mobile phones was an area of interest for all the
audience. The advantages and disadvantages is easily a topic of debate. Nishil
evaluated the speech.

Reminiscence: Navdeep keeps exceeding herself week after week with wonderful
speeches , this week it was about  childhood
days. The audience connected with her all along.Thanks to Navdeep  as it reminded each of us our childhood days
of glory were everything was possible. Special thanks to Subodh for evaluating
the speech.

Jokes: Anbu picked up a challenging and unique topic to present in this meetup
, It was jokes of rajnikant. It was  a
brilliant show by anbu as most stutterers refrain from telling jokes as we miss
the punch-lines quite easily J. Anbu portrayed the confidence of a stand up comedian as set the
stage for future stand up performances. Anbu sir got everyone grinning and
laughing, by the  time he was done. Credits
to Dinesh for evaluating the speech.

(Selecting a topic for a Speech is most difficult, to ease this we have decided to set a Theme for each meeting. Members can pick topics related to the theme)

In this innovative meetup we decided that
each meetup we will set a theme such that people can choose their speech topics, the way they introduce, experiences, related to the theme. Next week 10th
August we will kick off this new approach. The themes will be announced couples
of weeks in advance so that people can prepare and come J.

meetings: The Theme for next meetup is SPORTS (10-8-2013)


Bangalore SHG will be on Holiday on 18 th August.
