TISA thanks everyone..

We wish to thank everyone- those who participated, those who helped, those who could not participate but were with us in spirit and prayers, those who read the posts and spread the word..in fact EVERYONE on the globe.
Our special thanks to Dr Mahapatra for making himself so freely available- his story of Bhringaraj and the bamboo sapling, will remain with us for many many years to come; We thank his wife and family for sharing him with us so readily for the five days.. Many thanks to his team and staff at IHS, for making us feel at home..( jangal me mangal: it was like a picnic at Chandaka forest) and helping us in so many ways. Our immense gratitude to Hotel Bari International team as well..
We also would like to thank NSA (for the buttons, bands, brochures etc. received thru Elaine) and Elaine for her time, counsel, sharing of wisdom and knowledge..
We also thank Judith Kuster and Keith for all the help and best wishes.. Pam for excellent video message..Tanveer, Hiten and Danielle Rossi for promotions and sharing the event with their audience.
We wish to thank the FAMILIES which took the trouble of participating together: Mrs & Mr Manimaran, Rajesri and Raja, Gaurav and his pa (Deepak), Sumit and his parents..
Thanks to all the participants who prepared well and shared their thoughts: Pawas, Harish, Dhruva, Vivek and others..
Thanks to the young gang which volunteered many tasks BEFORE and during the NC with GREAT enthusiasm..
We also thank our families who stayed behind and phoned regularly to get updated..
May the new year bring all of us peace, awareness and creativity which we may need to realize our hidden potential..

I had such a wonderful time. I would like to thank you Sachin and JP for all the hard work that you put in to pull off a very successful conference. I loved being a part of TISA. What a great group of guys. Hopefully we can encourage the women who stutter of India as well. If you are a woman who stutters please feel free to contact me. Haklao, Magar Pyar Se. :-)
I miss you guys already!!!

It was great to know that you all guys had a great time at National Conference. Genrally, we used to get depressed sitting in isolation thinking about stammering. Now, stammering is getting us together to enjoy our life. In TISA, we are learning to enjoy our life and it proves stammering does not come in our way to happiness. I deeply congratulate all the members for successful event and having a great new year party at NC.

with regards
