Ms. Silvy Maxi Mena took the initiative to organize an 'International Workshop on Importance of Indian Sign Language in Deaf Education' from March 1 to 3. From the 'Set go' minute, there was hardly 3 weeks for her to get everything together - the resource persons, the attendees and everything else from scratch. She did it with swiftness ad finesse. Within a period of few days she got the Govt. Order for the teachers from all deaf schools to attend, issued by all three Directors - DPI, DHSE, & DVHSE - a feat which is unattainable in normal course. She got resource persons from Dehradoon, Delhi, Vadodara, Mumbai - all deaf education experts - to fly down on short notice. Silvy got the support from her colleagues to run the conference smoothly end to end. On March 3, when it was all over, it was all positive comments for the content, the organization, the logistics and everything else. It was a wonderful three days of active discussions, presentations, and demos.
Silvy showed us that if you step forward and put your heart and soul into anything, we can do it. Thank you Silvy for going forward in full faith and pulling it through! You have set a marvellous example to follow... Way to go NISHians!
