Having missed last year’s NC, I was very excited to meet fellow PWSs from across our country. I reached at 10.30 am ON 9TH OCT, almost 1.5 hrs late. Immediately I felt at home amongst so many people like me. I found that about 95% of the crowd was younger than me, and I realized of my ageing.Vishal Gupta and his Delhi SHG young team did a commendable job of organizing the NC so well. I also missed so many faces I came across in NC2012 and 2013. Where are those people now? Are they still in touch with TISA, or have they moved on? Fortunately I still stammer with full intensity, so I guess I have PLATINUM MEMBERSHIP of TISA.
Though all sessions were good , I liked Nitin Tomar’s and JP Sunda’s sessions the most.
My takeaway from Nitin’s speech-:” we can achieve success in our lives along with our stammering. We don’t have to get rid of stammering and then go after success.”
JP’s one statement (essence of it) : People watch him at his bank and are convinced that a PWS can become a bank manager and do his job well – breaking of myths and stereotypes about stammering in society.
PS: I skipped day 3, so couldn’t comment on activities on day 3.
