What is Community Building?

Community Building is developing authentic relationships between people. The word authentic is extremely important because people rarely communicate authentically. 

Why Community Building at Punjab?

Punjab is the state where there is less presence of OpenSource importance or Mozilla. This Community building ensures that it would add up the Tech culture. And a work-together and formation of an emotionally relating group of people. 

Why not an event at a college? Why Community building?

Well, conducting events is enough. We fly distances and conduct an event. We recruit 2-3 contributors among the 500 crowd which is actually useless and unworthy. Meeting metrics is an important metric infact. 


I have mentored remotely, few Techies from Punjab. They had been doing really great for the past 5-6 months. They were responsible for the Webmaker events which happened  in the Punjab. They have recruited 10-15 contributors and now Community building  adds up the spirits how to be a sustainable recruiter of people. 

What do we do at Community Building?

  1. Self transcending 
  2. Better results than the individual events on psychotherapeutic analysis.
  3. Permits the squashed, the hidden, inner person to emerge for the first time. Outspoken qualities. 
  4. This is a intimacy, spontaneity and a honest training.


I believe in Tuckman's process of CB:

  • Forming
  • Storming
  • Norming
  • Performing  


This is another unique aspect of community building. It is nothing but, 'make it easy'. Infact Community building is not a workshop, a session or an easy task. It's a struggle! 

  • Where is the group as a whole?
  • What is going on with each individual in the group?
  • What is going on with my co-facilitator?
  • Where am I and what is going on with me?
I am very much confidant and answerable to all these points. \o/
