People, all kinds of people, of different religions, caste, and other backgrounds have numerous kinds of problems. I, also, like every other normal
person have some difficulties, problems which I need to face daily. One of those problems, or in other words, we can say, a kind of illness with
me is stammering, or stuttering. Well, to be honest, this thing is incurable. People generally have wrong perceptions about stammering. They
think it is a habit, or people stammer only when they are nervous, anxious,etc. But this is not the truth. It can definitely be managed and
controlled with speech therapy, which I took and a lot of practice. Due to my stammering I wasted half my life trying to save my life from
challenging and tricky situations almost everyday. Then, I happened to attend this workshop in Herbertpur, and I met some wonderful
people(students) who also stammer just like me. We learned some very useful techniques(bouncing, prolongation, pull-out, cancellation to name a few)
and we also applied these in the outside world talking with strangers and so on. One lesson that I learned from this 3 day workshop is that no
matter what happens, whatever challenges come through, we must learn to accept it and always keep a positve mindset towards life. As they
say- "Life is precious, don't waste it". Well personally, for me, this workshop has benefited a lot, and I look forward to attending more such
workshops and SHG meetings in the near future.
Well, its goodbye for now, will come back soon.
