Metro Train Ka Sawaari - News @ Hyderabad SHG Meetup on 11th Nov

It was another great SHG MeetUp, its a Diwali Weekend so people are busy in stations to reach their destinations :)
We were only two members(Mahipal and myself) for the meetUp.

When we are able to manage how to communicate with others and get things done then no matter if we stammer or doesn't stammer. And this what TISA supports "communication rather than fluency" and this is all  we needed for life.
We decided that we shall never face or see a problem to do things in life as a PWS so we started trying to conquer every fear which we faced so far in Life so in that lines in November first week was Bus ka Sawaari week and this week it was Metro Train ka sawaari.



We started from Begumept metro train station, we both took tickets individually standing in a big line.
It was my 2nd time in life to stand in a line and take ticket for MMTS trains.
My turn came and i stammered and took my ticket, wow soooooooo good !
The ticket counter guy saw me and waited for me till i said station name and then gave me a ticket !
Wow same with Mahipal also, he also took ticket with stammering at ease !
We tried to stammer at ease by any means !!
With excitement we went to platform and waited for train to come, in course of time for train arrival we practiced slow speaking.
Train came and we stepped in, we even tried to talk in train in vol.stutt style. People looked at us but we didn't care as Stammering is Just another way of speaking.

From Begumpet we traveled to Hi-Tech city station and from there we went to Lingampally station and from there to Faluknama station and from there back to Begumpet station. So we stood 4 times in a line to take tickets on that day.
Final result was we can take tickets by our own in Life ! So satisfying day it was.
We cherished the tickets which we took in station as a token of achievement and conquering proof for ourselves :)
We finally said bye to each other and signed off the SHG MeetUp.


Together We Step Up :) Together We Succeed :)

Guys, you made my day! Yes, that is what the whole thing is about: Stammering with ease, comfort, confidence and purpose.. Gradually, we master this art and find that we can say anything, anywhere, to anyone. That brings lot of freedom.
I am very happy that you have turned SHG into practical day to day activity. Most pws need this kind of approach.. You guys can put together the next self help manual...

Wow Rajesh! You both have shown that a lot can be done, even if there are only 2 people in the SHG meet up. And yes, reading reports from Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chandigarh and others I can indeed see that SHGs are going to the 'Next' level...

Thanks for sharing. I learnt a new lesson with this...

@Sachin ji - Thank you so much, We are very happy and satisfied to share TISA motto with all our friends in our meetings.
A PWS life becomes more easy, goal oriented and satisfied with this approach "Stammer with Ease".

From the Self Help Manual we got a lot of good information and thanks for the great manual.

Regards.

@Harish Bro - Thank you so much.
Yeah even though it was diwali weekend we were present for SHG meetup as meetup is more priority one and SHG never stops because of low strength :)
Those few hours of meetup will make us learn 100 new things and good experiences which are holy lessons for a PWS's life.
The tasks which were impossible once in our life are so happened to be a simple tasks in meetups because in meetups power exists and carried back :)

Together We Step Up Together We Succeed !
This togetherness and success oriented steps comes only in TISA meetups.

Regards.
