Many thanks to ALL of you..

At successful completion of this big collaborative event- fourth national conference, we in TISA want to thank sincerely ALL of you, who made it possible: the parents, the friends - who expressed their solidarity and participated; women who stammer (WWS) who took courage to come and meet us; many young (and not so young!) pws who rose above scepticism and decided to give it a try; who immersed themselves in a new approach, a radical philosophy without holding back; Zahra Resort staff which played along and served us so well; friends from USA, Ukraine, Nigeria who took courage, came out and shared their stories and wisdom; our senior colleagues who facilitated session with joy, fun and creativity; all the SHGs and their members who participated; Rahul and Reena ji- for sharing their time and thoughts with us; and above all, ALL the members of Pune SHG, who not only organized but participated in every activity- and Virendra Shirse, who brought in a mature vision, implementation and oversight.

We are sure that we all understand that the real adventure begins now, as we return to our homes, work and college etc. In our experience, no NC has ever gone totally according to plans, but in final analysis, gains have always outweighed all the confusions and inconveniences. Never the less, we offer heartfelt apologies for any discomfort, caused to any participant. We are mulling over "lessons learned" and will share it ASAP.

We did miss some colleagues like JP, Mani, Raja and others.
Best wishes and Season's greetings!

Though I was not part of the NC,I congratulate you for the successful event that just went through in Khandala.
In your presence and with the praiseworthy support from Pune SHG,I hope this conference was like a booster for PWS across India and US in their quest for becoming a well informed,humble,and eloquent communicator in the society and serving them to the fullest.
