Worker sacked due to stutter in UK

Yes, Gorav! In India, everyone including the corner shop wala would have said- I told you so; you should have fixed your speech long time back..
:-(

This is why TISA should go to schools, talk to employers, write in papers, go to court, shout on roads, put on T shirts with slogans (Haklao magar pyar se) etc. etc.
