The Chennai SHG meeting held on 8th September at Anna Nagar Tower park were attended by JP, Vishal, Mr.Mohan (Vishal’s friend and an Ex-Stammerer), Sirdhar, Karthikeyan, prabu Francin & myself. This was hurriedly arranged one for JP. The story of Mr.Mohan is really extraordinary. Here I briefly narrate it mentioning his name to give motivation to young pws.
Mr.Mohan was born in a small village along with 4 brothers and 2 sisters. He was a severe stammerer during teenage and experienced similar ordeals that other pws also experienced during school days. At the age of 27 he ran away from his house and came to Chennai. He worked as a coolee assisting Mason on daily wage basis. But at his inner mind, there was always a big urge to overcome this disability.
Mr.Mohan met one person and told about his stammering problem. That person advised Mr.Mohan to write whatever happened in his life and show it to him. Accordingly, Mr.Mohan has written whatever he remembered and showed it to him. After reading it, that person found out the root cause (very personal one). He decided to erase that memory and also erase the memory of himself as a stammerer.
When he ran away from his house, he has not disclosed to his parents where he was. He has decided to go back only after got rid of his stammering. Then Mr.Mohan entered into customs clearance agent like Vishal and slowly climbed up in the business and now he is become a very successful businessman. He joined many personality development course which requires speaking practice and spent many lakhs Rupees for joining such courses.
Mr.Mohan become a very respectable figure in the society. When he came to Chennai, his qualification is PUC (failed). Now he has acquired post graduate and speaking English fluently. He got 2 daughters and both were married and one of them settled in USA. He also told that there was a communal clash happened in his village. He went to his village and pacified both the communities. He is having that much respect in his village now.
In fact both Mr.Mohan and Vishal had won committee elections held on last Saturday. Vishal has also informed that his story is similar to one that of Mr.Mohan except he doesn’t ran away from his home.
Mr.Mohan firmly belies that it is possible to completely cure stammering by erasing stammering from our mind. But he is still agreeing that he is little bit hesitant to speak to strangers now also. But during 3 hours conversation with him, he never stammered even one time.
We had a lunch in a Restaurant at Anna nagar. During conversation with Mohan at lunch time, he disclosed that he was supposed to attend a friend’s birthday at this time, but Vishal telling me about TISA and SHG meetings and so I decided to skip that function and attend this meeting.
Hats off to both Mr.Mohan and Vishal for their tremendous achievement in their lives. I hope this post will motivate many pws.
