हकलाहट का कारण शारीरिक?

हकलाहट का कारण अब तक मनोवैज्ञानिक ही समझा जाता था
अमरीकी शोधकर्तआओं ने कहा है कि हकलाने का कारण हो सकता है मानसिक न हो कर शारीरिक हो. इस खोज से आगे हो सकता है कि हकलाने की दवा निकाली जा सके. कैलिफोर्निया विश्वविद्यालय के प्रोफ़ेसर जेराल्ड मैग्वायर का मानना है कि हकलाना, मिर्गी या स्कित्ज़ोफ़्रेनिया जैसी ही एक समस्या है जो मस्तिष्क मे एक रासायनिक असंतुलन के कारण होता है. शोधकर्ताओं का कहना है कि उन्होंने मस्तिष्क की जांच के बाद पाया कि हकलाने का सम्बन्ध मस्तिष्क के अन्दर के एक गहरे भाग से हो सकता है जो हमारी बोलने की क्षमता को नियंत्रित करता है.

SHG Meeting Jaipur Chapter

On 14th Dec. we decided to meet after a long time. We were 4 members but only 1 (i.e. me) finally reached the destination. So I could not do a lot of activity alone and I decided to spread awareness about Stammering and TISA. Initially I was a bit unconfident but I gave it a try. I went to an uncle with my pamphlet in hand. Uncle was not interested and he refused to talk about stammering. It didn't discouraged me infact boosted me that I alone can do it. Then I went to 2 young boys and interacted with them and told them about stammering and TISA. Again I went to a group of three person and interacted them. While talking with them I noticed that my speed and fluency both improved.

Overall I enjoyed the meeting and that too alone!!!!

But what I learned is we need to be positive about our stammering and we should not run on speed and fluency: they would come by default.

Inspiring and True!

Add caption
"My incapacity for spontaneous speech led to a highly developed skill for improvisation. My adaptations were so successful that most of my peers and professors probably did not even know I stuttered.
Later, I would learn that hiding my stutter only perpetuated my anxiety and frustration with my speech. The skills I acquired by hiding it, though, never left me...."

Meditation is for everyone

Sam Harris, a prominent Atheist writer, writes the following about the Vipassana Meditation:

 For beginners, I always recommend a technique called vipassana (Pali, “insight”), which comes from the oldest tradition of Buddhism, the Theravada. The advantage of vipassana is that it can be taught in an entirely secular way. Experts in this practice generally acquire their training in a Buddhist context, of course—and most retreat centers in the U.S. and Europe still teach its associated Buddhist philosophy. Nevertheless, this method of introspection can be brought within any secular or scientific context without embarrassment. The same cannot be said for most other forms of “spiritual” instruction.
The quality of mind cultivated in vipassana is generally referred to as “mindfulness” (the Pali word is sati), and there is a quickly growing literature on its psychological benefits. Mindfulness is simply a state of open, nonjudgmental, and nondiscursive attention to the contents of consciousness, whether pleasant or unpleasant. Cultivating this quality of mind has been shown to modulate pain, mitigate anxiety and depression, improve cognitive function, and even producechanges in gray matter density in regions of the brain related to learning and memory, emotional regulation, and self awareness.
So, please give meditation a try, no matter what your faith is. You don't need to believe in Buddha, or for that matter, any God to practice and derive the benefits of meditation practice. It's all about being in the present moment.

The interview

Another true incident:
Hi guys!  I wanna share my experience. My technical interview started at 11 am. The interviewer was a kind man. First he asked me to introduce myself. I said my name fluently,  first time in my life I guess. Then I got stuck on my college name. The interviewer asked me are u nervous or u have some problem. Then I told him about my stammering like V.... sir told me. I told him I am a member of TISA. I am working on my stammering from 2 months. He said fine and asked me to drink water and be relaxed. Then he said to continue. Then I told everything in a prolonged way. Then he asked me about my project and some oops sql and C questions. I answered as well as explained with example. Then he said fine- I am done with interview and told me If I wanna ask some questions. I asked sir whether my stammering will be a hindrance to getting selected in the interview. He said no that's not the problem but you need to improve on it alot cz you will need to meet new persons and clients. I said ok sir I will. Then he asked some sql questions and said me.to.wait outside for result. I and my friend both thought we won't be selected. But then the representative told me that anshu you are through to the hr round. I was happy as anything. Me and my friend both went to hr round together with 2 girls. Hr was simple. We needed to speak on the essay we wrote i.e social media boom or bane. I spoke for 2 mins then he said ok and like wise all spoke for 1 to 2 min. Then hr said ok guys are you willing to relocate and join by 22 nd dec. We have 3 months training etc. Then he told us to leave and he will mail us within one week. Very lengthy message I guess equivalent to my essay ...

Acceptence : जीवन में चुनौतियां देने के लिए ईश्वर का शुक्रिया

अब 10 महीने हो गए मेरे पिताजी को एक्सीडेन्ट के कारण बेहोश हुए। अपने पिता को पल-पल जीवन के लिए संघर्ष करते हुए देखना बहुत ही दुःखद अहसास कराता है हर दिन। फिर भी जीवन की इस चुनौती को मैंने स्वीकार कर लिया है, आत्मसात कर लिया है। एक छोटे बच्चे की तरह मेरे पिताजी को देखभाल की जरूरत है, और मुझे यह करने में अब कोई असहजता महसूस नहीं होती।

कभी-कभार कुछ लोग घर पर आते हैं। कहते हैं कि किस्मत में लिखा था यह कष्ट सहना, भगवान ने आप लोगों के साथ बहुत अन्याय किया है! आदि-आदि। मैं इन सब बातों को अधिक महत्व नहीं देता। अरे! अगर किसी दूसरे की गलती से मेरे पिताजी का एक्सीडेन्ट हो गया तो, इसमें भगवान को दोष देना कतई ठीक नहीं है। सच तो यह है कि अधिकतर एक्सीडेन्ट या बीमारी के लिए मानवीय कारण ही जिम्मेदार होते हैं।
