Testimony

एक साल पहले चंडीगढ मे TISA की 1 day WORKSHOP हुई थी, It was nearby my city but मै उसमे नही गया, सोचा- एक दिन की workshop attend करने से कौनसा चमत्कार हो जायेगा जब साल भर में ही कुछ नहीं हुआ ।
(1998 में मैने india speech therapy centre आमेर,जयपुर से speech therapy ली. एक साल बाद 2000 में जयपुर मे ही graduation के लिये admission मिल गया । पर नया माहोल,नया college,नये students के बीच stammering बढ गयी । मै jaipur speech therapy centre के doctor को फ़िर से मिला । वो बोले- तुम जयपुर मे ही पढ़ रहे हो हर रविवार को यहाँ आ जाया करो its free। सो मै हर रविवार जाता था, कई stammerer के साथ group meeting होती थी । मै नये stammerers को सलाह देता था as I was senior to new stammerers. पर Bus मे टिकट college से एक station आगे का लेता था जिसको बोलना आसान था । साल भर यही सिलसिला चला । result nil.)
But after attending 2 days TISA workshop at delhi, I had to change my prejudices(opinions) - TISA workshop can do miracle on stammerer's mindset -fear, hatred, shame, avoidance, guilt.ये stammerers की डर, शरम, अपराधबोध की मानसिकता को बदलने में चमत्कारिक रूप से कारगर है ।Most effective part of this workshop was to go to metro station and purchase token & going in public and asking questions about stammering with volunteer stammering. By these activities, stammerers can bring up iceberg (of stammering) on surface and able to blast.as Stammering is like an iceberg "The part above the surface, what people see and hear, is really the smaller part. By far the larger part is the part underneath, the shame, the fear, the guilt, all those otherfeelings that we have when we try and speak a simple sentence and can't.

Dear Hemant- Thanks a lot! Let me add one thing- if a PWS can attend 3-4 TISA events, their ICEBERG will just melt away. They will be able to look at life and Communication in a very NEW way. Also, in the bargain, they will make life long friendships. And a day will come, when they will sincerely THANK their stammering.. I have seen this happening with my own eyes.  (Editor)

Thank you very much for sharing Hemant!
Yes just attending TISA events can change our attitude towards stammering to such extent. I am one of the many people who have been benefited from it.
