Kolkata SHG meet writeup... after ages!! :)

Hello Everybody,

                 Writing about a meet after quite some time. (A discontinuity worth taking I guess).
Kolkata SHG meets have taken a consistent shape under the constant endeavours of a young gun named Amrit. Meets are now being held regularly on Sundays, and have health attendances ranging from 5-10 people.

Amrit & Co have even bought a microphone to aid in Public Speaking. Next in the lineup in to locate a room to enable more vibrant practices, under similar lines of Mumbai SHG.

Last Sunday, 29th March, a similar SHG meet was held. I attended the same after a gap of more than 2 months, and was pleasantly surprised at how much it had matured. Sincerely hope this growth carries on.
There were a total of 8 attendees. The activity done was individual public speaking using the microphone at a serene corner of Nandan. (More than once passerby’s gave curious glances trying to fathom what was going on….).

Special mention and thanks to Mr Shyman Sunder  Singh (motivational speaker and coach), who gave a scintillating talk at the end.


Attendees -  Amrit, Shyam Sunderji, Mr Santanu, Shashikant, Samnan, Samrat, Anirrudh and Kushal.

Wonderful!
Mic is a definite plus for a shg. To listen to one's own voice booming out is a great positive feedback and instant inspiration...
Amrit - u r inspiration stuff! Share your story someday...

I would like to thank Kushal for sharing this beautiful post on Kolkata SHG meet at Nandan. In fact, for the first time I attended this splendid meet and public speaking with micro. Really, a fantastic experience to share different issues of life with the group members present there. I shall very much like this SHG meet continue and grow in size (more stammering personalities joining in), gather momentum and develop a long way in the years to come.
