We started with the first activity on our agenda

 – Introduction with a surprise common question.

               The common question was to tell at least five good qualities about oneself, the reason being as PWS we tend to spend a lot of time counting our flaws and focus on things we don’t like about ourselves, and often forget to give credit to ourselves for the things we are good at and should be proud of. I kicked off this activity and then we all took time to praise ourselves for once, and appreciate each other as well for the things we didn’t know.

Two things that were notable:-
       First we ourselves struggled to remember the good about us while the people around us at the meeting could point out many qualities that they appreciated in the speaker, and 

       second thing was that we’ve discovered a lot about us from attending SHG meetings, like we made friends easily, we are funny too, leadership qualities etc. We went on to tell what we liked about each other and discussed how important it is to appreciate ourselves and to be very positive.

Then we had a five minute meditation session. We all set comfortably on benches, relaxing all body parts, closed our eyes and focused on breathing in and out in the calm and serene environment of the park. It was very relaxing and refreshing afterwards as some of the members pointed out and we all felt that too.

Since Gagan is a new member, we discussed various techniques like bouncing, prolongation etc.. 
He also shared a story about a stammerer in Gujarat who went on from being extremely suicidal to helping other stammerers for free. We also discussed student life and how to go about it. Group Discussion was later in the agenda, but the discussion that happened before couldn’t be more engaging.

Next in the agenda was Role-Play

                     Each of us had to play a character decided by the group members. 

First was Uzair who played the character of a guy in a train trying to get a girl’s phone number. Girl in this scenario was palyed by Gagan and rest of us played other passengers.

 In the next scenario Vijendra wanted to play the boy’s character and Uzair palyed the girl’s character. 

Next was Sumit, he did a character speech which he was used to do in public buses pretending to a security personnel giving safety instructions.

 Next was Jasmeet who was given the role of a Bus Conductor in Haryana Roadways, he went up to every member in his character and palyed many jokes. 

Next was my turn, I imitated the character of Baburao from the movie Hera Pheri, I also went to other members and played jokes with them. It was very entertaining and all of us realized that we hardly stammered while we were in those characters. We decided to always pretend to be a character of ourselves who is more confident, strong and speaks very well.

It was getting late, so we decided to call it a day. We exchanged our greetings and went away with a smile on our faces and loads of confidence up our sleeves.

Special shout out to Vineet who last week got placed at a job in Delhi. We couldn’t be happier for him. We all wish him Best of Luck for his future.

                                                                                                  LOVE FROM CHANDIGARH....

Wah wah!
Congrats to everyone, Mukul, Jassi, Paramjeet Sir, Vaibhav & Vijender, Sumit, Shashank, Gagan, Vineet and Abhishek..
Every activity was very meaningful. And I am sure will benefit everyone, though the effect will be visible after some time.
Mukul, if you are taking videos, ever thought of putting them up on youtube and sharing a link here..? Of course with the permission of the group. It might help many other SHGs which are running out of ideas - and inspiration sometime.
I am also very happy that your group is keeping a count of SHG meetings. A management saying goes like this: You get what you count!

Vineet, I hope that you will conduct some sessions in Delhi SHG too - to serve and inspire others. It is a great group. And yes, congrats from all of us in Dehradun!
