I basically started this course thinking that this would be related to psychology and give me deeper insight into that.

However, when it moved to counselling, I wasn’t sure what to expect but I decided to go with the flow. I didn’t know that the course could change me so much internally. There wasn’t too much personal sharing that I did but the topics that were dealt with made me introspect and change so much to become a better person. When I started the course.

I walked into Banjara alone and did not know if I would find friends here because the age group was quite vast. But today, as we come towards the end of the course, I can say that the friends I have made here are for real and we share a very good bond. I know I can speak my heart out with some people I met here. I always loved meeting new people and interacting with them and this course gave me a lot of opportunity to do that. Now, it has become second nature for me to ask people how they are feeling and be genuinely concerned about them. Initially, it felt a little artificial to ask people about them and show concern, especially with strangers. So I started with the ones close to me and slowly started feeling good when I could bring a smile on their face. I feel I’m stronger and more in control of myself. I feel confident and very honestly, my self esteem which had got hit in the past, has now become better.
Some class really gave me a lot of thoughts to take back, introspect and share with other batch mates. We would discuss so much on our way back home. This helped us to understand each other’s mindset better and end of the day, we would have bonded without even realising it. I still cannot believe how 8 months of class passed so quickly. I feel like I started yesterday and remember every minute of my Day One at Banjara so clearly. Those who were strangers back then are the ones really close to me today.
