The fourth season of Deertalk 2013 ran from June 21 to July 24 and featured Prativa Dahal, Sulekha Bhandari, Suraj Pant, Sunil Manandhar, Neeraj Sharma, Rosina Shakya, Deependra Shrestha, and Biswas Lohani. The season included many informative and entertaining speeches and we saw everyone visibly trying to better themselves with each passing episode.
The debate topic was ‘Who are more complicated; men or women?’ and the discussion was quite interesting. Rosina won the episode by providing some hard hitting points on why women are more complicated than men. She was consistent in her performance throughout the season and won three of the four episodes.
Sulekha gave a presentation on hypocrisy and won the final presentation session. Her topic demanded a bit of soul searching on everyone’s part and made us realize that hypocrisy, as unbearable as it may be, is an unavoidable fact of life. Suraj’s presentation on ‘No internet’ was as interesting as it sounded. One could easily put themselves in his shoes as he talked about a day without internet.
Rosina won the season and Neeraj came second. The winner was awarded the book “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari” by Robin Sharma.
Rosina says: “It was quite an experience to participate in Deertalk. It helped in overcoming the anxiety of speaking in front of large groups and in learning the do’s and don’ts of speech delivery. I think every one of us in Deerwalk should participate in Deertalk to boost up our confidence.”
Neeraj says: “Initially, when my name appeared for Deertalk, I was very frightened by the thought of performing in front of other people. But, gradually as each episode went by, the fear within me disappeared and I got more confident. I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank all the PCC members for taking this initiative and conducting such wonderful sessions for everyone. Finally I can say “I have overcome my stage fright.”
