Very soon I’ll fall in love with Bangalore…for the awesome SHG group: Post by Soma Roy
From Siliguri…to Kolkata & now Bangalore…It has been a great journey of my life.The shy girl in Siliguri has changed to some extent in Kolkata SHG & now, Bangalore SHG has given her a new platform to improve herself to her level best.
Myself Soma Roy, from IISc Bangalore, persuing Ph.D in the subject of Anti-Cancer drug. This was my second SHG in Bangalore. I’m truly inspired to see the constancy of attendance here. People do change or postpone their program to attend the SHG. This really proved their seriousness towards Self Help Group.
The members of the SHG meet attended on 03.05.15 are: Dinesh, Rohit, Siddarth, Pramod, Mansi, Tapan, Anandbabu, Thomas, Anshuman, Saicharan, Suryakant, Naman, Ajay, Avinash, Harikrishna, Sharath and myself Soma.
At first, we did the reading practice in relaxed way from the book “Apna Hath Jagannath”. Then, we introduced ourselves one by one. Everyone gave their intro very clearly. Thomas was very much happy to get a new job & we are also happy for you dude! (You cann’t escape from giving treat to us.)
Then, it was the time for prepared speech. Rohit delivered a nice story named ‘Merchant of Venice’ on the topic of how a lady can save her best friend’s life by intelligency. Then, Pramod gave a nice talk about ‘Handshaking’ i.e. how we can judge people by the way of their handshake. Naman gave a speech about his company. Mansi told nicely about her 5 years Ph.D work & we all salute her for her contribution to the research of Tuberculosis. Siddarth (right now, he is married!) has also gave a nice speech about the impact of wrong decision taken by the Government. Dinesh Sir talked about an incident of how they went upon to win a cricket match. He showed a motivational video to all of us of the song of “Say what you need to say… Say what you need to say… Say what you need to say…”. Anshuman told about the story of the cinema “Dam Lagake Haisha” and the lesson he got from the cinema that if we can only accept our good natures then there will be hardly any problem in our life. Then, it was my turn. I shared about my life story that how I came across of one of my difficult situations in my life with the help of my father. Avinash told about his performance in college fest that how one professor appreciated him for participating the show of Mr. & Ms. Performer of his college. Lastly, Anandbabu gave a very interesting and motivational speech about his stammering life in school.
It was really a great experience for me. I will try my level best to attend the SHG in every Sunday. I am also requesting to join SHG to those who have not yet attended it as you cann’t get a better platform than this. From now onwards, I think I will never feel alone in Bangalore…
