Earlier this month we had a workshop on Total Quality of Life at Dharwad. The workshop was organized for Degree and Post Graduate Students in association with NGO CONNECT, Dharwad.
The workshop as divided into four sessions:
First Session was on importance of concentration and how it helps to improve the process of thinking. Also, a small film was shown which gave a message of sharing happiness; caring for others without any expectations.
The second session included importance of Values and ethics in life. They also specified on attitude of students towards education and how it has helped to improve life of students and their families.
The third session was of group activity, where three students were paired in a group and were given a game to play. One student had to decide his where he/she wants to reach in the specified area and his/her eyes were closed with a handkerchief. The other two had to distract the first person so that he/she shouldn’t reach the desired goal. This game helped them to understand that no matter how many obstacles come in life you have to be very focused in order to achieve your goals. The game seemed to be simple initially but as it progressed it became interesting and students enjoyed playing it.
The fourth and final session was about importance of listening. Again the students were paired in group and one of them had to tell happy moment of his/her life. The others were asked to make noise. Due to this the first student got annoyed, then the Workshop in-charged explained we all do the same thing. When someone is trying to tell you something listen carefully as at a times it cause misunderstanding and people feel bad.
Lastly, we all had fun dancing on the song from 3 Idiots Give me some sun shine, give me some rain…. It was indeed a very funfilled workshop with very clear message about how to live life, maintain relations, respect others,focus on goals. The stuents enjoyed workshop and we hope to have similar workshop for our other students a well.
