This is a live recording of the speech, in English, [ with a sprinkling of Hindi / Telugu ] to a group of participants of a one week programme at Vivekananda Institute of Human Excellence, Ramakrishna Math, Hyderabad.
The Power Point presentation, which is generally used at the Vivekananda Institute was used this time also.
The importance of communication skills was explained, along with related aspects such as internal and external communication, errors in communication, and certain hints were provided, which if practiced, will certainly improve the quality of communication of the participants, and will certainly lead to an improvement in the quality of their life.
You would be better able to appreciate the beauty and the purpose of the presentation when both the audio version, uploaded to www.archive.org [please search for Prof. V. Viswanadham], and the relevant power point presentation that can be viewed at www.scribd.com [please search for Viswam.vangapally4581] and / or www.slideshare.net/viswanadham and taken together as a package.
Each time the presentation is made, as a teacher, I ensure that right from the introduction to the development of the theme, it is done differently, the examples are appropriate to the audience, the language style, and the mixture of local language, some times with local accent, – an attempt is made to create a unique blend. This is being mentioned, so as to make it clear that you may not feel bored or disinterested, and by listening to two or more lectures on the same topic, presented before different audiences, at various places, you may actually obtain a better insight into the scope of the topic.
It is humbly suggested that you may please use the power point presentations, freely. Please feel free to refer to these websites to your friends and motivate them to become better, continuously. Please help me to spread the motivating message to as many people as possible.
