It was a chilled ,breezy Sunday morning in Cubbon Park Bangalore. This time I was first to reach there before time and waited for 30 mins and slowly people started gathering.
Attendees: Pramod, Sharath,Aditya, Sid,Praveen(new member),Mansi,Nishil,Ruben,Kavish,Siddharth and Me(Rohit)
We did following activities
1 Introduction Round
Introduction round was the very first activty of the day's agenda. so each one on us gave introduction with applying techniques and as slow as possible.
Everyone introduced very effectively
2 Impromptu speeches
Now it was time to slowly increase our anxiety
and there and each one of us was given a time limit of 3 minutes to wind up our speeches.some of the topics were trees,half pant,theism,wine etc.
everybody talked their minds there in the limited time period and Impromptu speeches, again turn out to be and great practice.
after this round we directly went into prepared speeches round.
3 Prepared Speeches
This time we had 3 prepared speeches,I went first and spoke about my revered Vipasana teacher late Sri S.N.Goenka ji and I tried to to be as slow as possible.
next was Siddhartha ans then Pramod.
Now we went into toughest round where We see lot of anxiety and hurry we started debate on "Atheist vs Theist"
first every one from two teams was given chance to put his/her points and theareafter started hot arguments and we could see how stress level changes our smooth speech to hurried and blocked speech.
It was best round where we need to improve a lot and need more and more practice.
last round was the Confession round , where we can share our small small confession without the fear of being judged.
We concluded with delicious Khakra and Gulab Jamun brought by Mansi with Spirite from Ruben.
Thanks Mansi and Ruben for wonderful snacks.
