    Next project for Toastmasters is to tell Touchung Story, 5 to 7 minutes. That is name of project, The Touching Story.

    The only story that comes from my heart is Umrao Jaan.

    But it is so sad, and the end is heartbreaking. Of course I can say story is Universal, about the human condition, rather than saying it is from India.

    I want to tell story that is comical. But it is not coming from heart. Frog Price with late Robin Williams is comical. But I want to tell story that comes from heart.

    I'm in a dilemma. I want to be real and foreign instead of fake. Plus it is insult to late comedians memory if I tell story that is not heartfelt.

    Besides, I am mostly doing Presidental and leadership things ... perhaps members will be ok with me telling Umrao Jaan.
