Jasbirji is presently in Goa, and I had an opportunity to meet him today at the lodge where he is staying. The evening spent with Jasbirji today is a lasting memory I will cherish for my life time. Jasbirji’s smiling face welcomed me, and within no time, I was very much comfortable talking to him, even though it was our first meeting. We exchanged a lot of things, and there were a number of things to learn from him.
About communication, Jasbirji says- “Your speech is like your baby. Love it, take care of it, adore it, play with it. It is a great feeling”. For me, this was a completely new perspective of looking at one’s speech. He further added that whenever there is an opportunity of communication; grab it simply because of the joy of exchange of knowledge. When two people communicate, you give something and you take something. That in itself is a prized experience. Step into a talking situation because it will benefit others.
Jasbir also talked about the significance of working with other stammerers. Get in touch of stammerers around you, may be in your SHG, and work with him, help him get over his fears, his problems. In this process, you will also work on your problems.
Indeed, it was an evening to remember. I will be meeting Jasbir ji for the next few days. On Saturday, we have organized a talk open to public in Panaji City, followed by an outing with him with Goa SHG. Looking forward and waiting eagerly for all the learning moments to come with Jasbir ji, and everybody in Goa SHG.
