Happy New Year, and Best wishes for the coming year.
Kolkata had an SHG meet (actually two) yesterday, on January the 4th. Attendance was healthy taking into account the discontinuity in between.
Total of 10 people were split into two groups, following a clash of ideologies(!) So damn unfortunate. Our group stuck to TISA’s core principles of freedom to speak in any manner one wants, not adhering to any one specific technique and the SHG meet acting as a platform to shed ones emotional baggage.
No fixed agenda was followed, as this meet was being held after quite a while. General discussions took place on stammering, what problems each of the members face in general and solutions to the same.
One new member Rupak, has done extensive research on Stammering as a Disability, and wants to pursue this matter further. Stammering is actually recognized as a disability in many countries. Can any other member get in touch with him regarding the same?
Let us hope in the coming new year, Kolkata SHG at least builds a base.
Ps: On a personal note, One of my New Year Resolution is to be able to give a Toastmaster talk by the end of year. Wish me luck people!!
