The batch consisted of 21 participants, who had come from across the State and representing different professional backgrounds.
While handing over the certificates to the participants, D Bal Reddy, Director, Hyderabad Media House asked the participants to practice the tips they have been given every day, if they were seriously interested in becoming Vakthas. He said that a good orator kept the mood of the audience in consideration at all times.
On the first day of the training programme, Y Rajasekhar, MD, Hyderabad Media House, emphasised on the need to develop communication skills. This, he said, would help in removing all barriers while speaking. Describing communication as an attitude, he noted that people misunderstood this to be a language.
Rajasekhar underlined the importance of communication skills recalling some of the instances that had taken place during his career. He said that on the professional front, clear communication helps a person to build relationship with colleagues and clients. On the personal front, it would also help building good relationship with family members.
The Chief Guest of the Vaktha, Ravulapati Seetharama Rao, retired DIG and TDP leader asked the participants to turn the disadvantages into their own advantage. According to him, the attire of the orator puts impression upon the audience who are generally influenced by the ‘get up’. While giving the feedback, the participants observed a lot of change in their attitude. S Ganapathi, who was inspired by the Vaktha vowed to keep the pace and momentum, which he gained during the two days. Mallika, another participant explained as to how she conquered the stage fear during the training.
