Report on FREE Session on Anger Management, other Life Skills

Held on 15 Sep at Banjara Academy, RT Nagar
As a part of Introduction to Life Skills, Banjara Academy conducted a session on Anger Management and other Life Skills. Dr. Ali took up the first session on Anger Management. The hall was over flowing to capacity and Ali was joking around that perhaps we should have a HOUSEFULL Board prepared. Current students, past students and many others coming to Banjara for the first time filled up the hall. Ali talked about what anger is, when we need to deal with it and how to deal with it. He also distributed a small booklet giving tips on managing our anger.
This was followed up with a session on Creative Thinking by Eshwar Sunderasan, a faculty at Banjara. He introduced the concepts of Creative Thinking and he made the participants do a very interesting activity to drive home the concept of Creative Thinking. Asha Sidd came last to take a short session on Self-Awareness. She made the participants realize that self-awareness was the key to managing their emotions. She connected it to the topic Dr. Ali had taken earlier and showed the participants how self-awareness helps to deal with anger.
Sreedhar, Director (Programs) at the Academy, coordinated the sessions. He invited the audience to be present on 20th September for the session on Stress Management and other Life Skills. He also spoke about the upcoming course on Life Skills, a six-month program which trains students to become Life Skills Coaches. The program is starting by the end of this month and is available as weekday and weekend batches; the details are available on the Academy's website here:

Leading Banjara Academy's online email counselling team of volunteer-counsellors, I realize it is not an easy task reaching out to a person one has never met, never seen, without the added advantage of gestures, eye contact, a gentle reassuring touch, tone of voice and yet providing empathy, positive strokes, making the person feel heard and understood.

With the aid of only written words, it is quite a task building trust, making people open up and share and helping them cope and feel better. So when in many instances they write back saying thank you and that they feel so much better, the feeling one gets is priceless and incomparable - knowing one has done something right, something good!

Hats off to all the volunteeer-counsellors of Banjara Academy who have been carrying on this work silently, anonymously for the last couple of years. Truly commendable! - Ali Khwaja
