Yes,it is possible only for Arman, new member of Kolkata,SHG. We were five members there, Pratimda, Suvodipda,Santu,Arman& me(Soma).After a few confusions about statue or photo of Victoria(Arman said that he was in front of photo of Victoria along with Santu,but it was statue of Victoria!!!!),we met together atlast& we started the meeting with brief introductions of us.
Arman & Santu are new members in TISA. They explained their experiences regarding stuttering. Arman has done a 2 month cource of speech therapy in Kolkata & he said that he is improving day by day.He practices breathing exercises, yoga daily for 1 to 2 hours (kudos to Arman!!!).Santu has come from Tarakeshwar(2-3 hrs train distance away from Kolkata) only for this SHG(that’s great Santu& it will motivate many newbie members to join us).He told that his speech problem arised since class 7 standard & it is due to overspeed of his speaking style.Then, Suvodipda & Pratimda explained about the concept of acceptance that the more we accept our stuttering,the more we become relaxed & also stuttering reduces to some extent.Pratimda well-defined stuttering as psycho-physiological disorder & explained very nicely the reason of it.He has also told about his motivational talkings to TarakGodaria& the flash of Delhi NC which he heard from Kushalda.Then I told them about slow speaking& prolongation style(which I usually try to implement).After such discussions,we said good-bye to each other & we promised that we will organise SHG atleast once in month.We spent a great Diwali evening(we missed Kushalda too) & yes Kolkata SHG is growing up day by day….
