Bangalore SHG Meeting Minutes 04/19/15

When I entered into the Cubbon park(Bangalore SHG meeting venue). I shocked “how come there are so many pws in the meeting”. I was questioning to myself “Is that the Sun rising from west”.

First of all I would like to thanks Dinesh who put really great effort to organize this SHG meeting. He convinced many of the PWS to join this meeting. Secondly thanks to Tarak Sir who take out some time from his busy schedule and join us. At last thanks to all the Bangalore SHG members who joined this meeting. From long time I saw this huge crowd in our Bangalore SHG we were 22 members, their names below who didn’t miss this event.

Kishan, Reuben, Pramod, Mukul, Venkatesh, Rohit Kumar, Upasana, Siddharth, Karthik, Nishil, Rohit Mishra, Dinesh K.K, Aruna, Soma, Mansi, Hari, Thomas, Tarak Sir, Karpagavalli, Dinesh, Sairam and Akash(me).

Our meeting started something like this,

·         Introduction
·         Chain name game
·         Motivational speech by Tarak Sir
·         Prepared speech
·         Telephonic round
·         Group snap

A small overview of all the activities,

·         Introduction: In this round, who all are the old members of this group have to say some words about their experience of SHG meetup. What they learnt from this group. And for new members who join first time they only have to introduce. All did very well and it takes almost an hour to complete this round.

·         Chain name game: After we played a game in this, one person has to add some prefix to his/her name which starts from first letter of his/her name (for instance Karthik is KILLER Karthik). Then next person repeat his/her name and add prefix to his own name, and so on. There was a purpose to play this game, because most of the people were new. And we are here not just practicing our techniques but also make new friends.

·         Motivational speech by Tarak Sir: He explained that how can we motivate ourselves on certain situations where we stuck and not able to speak well. He told that he used prolongation technique and overall summary is “if you want to communicate and to make other person understand what you want to tell. Then you have to speak well. And this all comes from practice”.

·         Prepared speech: I gave prepared speech from longtime. I come up with small motivational story. Story name was “Everyone has a story in life”. I’m pasting below so it can also motivates you,

A 24 year old boy seeing out from the train’s window shouted…
“Dad, look the trees are going behind!”
Dad smiled and a young couple sitting nearby, looked at the 24 year old’s childish behavior with pity,
suddenly he again exclaimed…
“Dad, look the clouds are running with us!”
The couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man…
“Why don’t you take your son to a good doctor?”
The old man smiled and said…
“I did and we are just coming from the hospital, my son was blind from birth, he just got his eyes today.

Every single person on the planet has a story. Don’t judge people before you truly know them. The truth might surprise you.

·         Telephonic round: As per we were 21 members this time so we split in two groups. In this activity 2pws stand in a manner that they were not seen their faces but listen what the other guy is telling. Purpose of this activity was that we most of the PWS has phone phobia and from this activity we can come out from this, if we do again and again.

·         Group snap

The meeting was nicely wrapped up. I hope that next time also will be the same crowd or more than that because this was the real face of SHG. At last I would like to thanks one more time to all members of SHG Bangalore who joined this meeting and made it successful. Who missed this meeting please join next time and learn more skills and meet with more people. I’m closing this report by small motivational words,

Don’t sit back and think that someday God will come and give you a magic wand. If you want to cure really then come out from your comfort zone and see the world from open eyes. No one can stop you, if others can do it (Like Hrithik Roshan) you can also do it.
