The most vital Vitamin => Vitamin-M

Today’s session was graced by 3 ladies: Upasana(head of TISA women’s wing!), Jaita, and Hema.
The gentlemen who attended were: Sairam, Jitu, Rohit, Chandan, Dinesh Kadam, Chadrashekar, Pramod, Abhinav, Pravin and Myself.

Today we decided to talk about most vital “VITAMIN – M”!!
Today’s discussion was all about Vitamin M (Money) => Savings, investments, insurance etc.

We began the session by singing our National Anthem “Jana gana mana”.
After this, we discussed about  Savings Vs Investment, Term Plan Vs LIC, PF Vs PPF Vs VPF, Mutual Funds, real estate, shares, Risky  Vs Non-Risky investment etc.

We discussed how important  it is to avoid spending recklessly and start doing some investments – earlier the better.
After very interesting discussion on investments we had few patriotic songs from Rohit, Dinesh Kadam, Pravin and Pramod. Rohit sang “Saare Jahan se accha”, Dinesh sang “Jaha daal daal pe Sone ki” Pravin sang “Dil diya hai jaan bhi deenge” and Pramod sang a melodious Sanskrit song.

Later we had sharing’s by everyone which was very hilarious.  Amidst all this we had a fantastic, thought proving speech by Pramod on Human behaviour.
We wound the day intimating everyone that Vishal Shah from Coimbatore has organised a “Land Mark Education” introduction session next Sunday – Aug 26 at Bangalore SHG. We are thankful for that. Volunteers from Land mark education would come and give the introduction about  the program. This is not about Stammering Cure but about living life in a “Powerful” and “Fulfilling” manner.  This is what had turned Vishal Shah from being a “victim” to becoming an Entrepreneur. Mind you, he still stammers like every one of us, but he is an altogether different person from inside.

It is high time that we go beyond speech therapies and gain wider experience from OTHER programs like Vipassana, Landmark etc. Ultimately, this wider experience will help us deal the problem at hand effectively.

It is true that life is not all about stammering only.. there are many other things by which we can manage our LIFE as well as stammering effectively....
Well scripted.... :):)

Congratulations Upasana, Hema, Jaita and all of you in B'lore SHG!
I am very happy about the developments..
No social change is complete, till women participate in it on EQUAL footing, this is my deepest conviction.
Girls, Dont just grace the meeting- take it over!

Vishal- I am impressed! Carry on your mission..

Three ladies in a SHG meeting. This is a new record as per my knowledge. Can you also write a post about - "Savings Vs Investment, Term Plan Vs LIC, PF Vs PPF Vs VPF, Mutual Funds, real estate, shares, Risky Vs Non-Risky investment etc.". Many of us would be benefited by the knowledge :-)
