Importance of Verbal Communication in Group Interaction Verbal communication is the most effective way to give instruction, correction or direction to a group. Without it there can be misunderstandings, frustration and lack of productivity. Verbal communication is essential to have a healthy and fruitful group or team. It helps set guidelines and boundaries in team dynamics that allow a group to achieve the goal it intends to accomplish. • Gives Instruction • Allows for Clarity
  2. 2. • Provides Direction • Power of Persuasion • Encourages Resolve Film “Ek Ruka Hua Faisla” shows us that impulsive decisions are not good and we have to be objective when important decisions have to be taken. A young boy has been charged for killing his father and court has appointed a jury of 12 members to decide whether man is guilty and hence deserves a capital punishment or not? Members of Jury are not lawyers but they belong to different sections of society. All the members of Jury are gathered in a closed room. As soon as meeting is started, few of them are eager to seal the fate of the man and 11 people decide that decision to give capital punishment to the accused is perfectly right. He killed his father and he deserves this and he should be hanged. 8th Juror, opposes this decision. Not that he says that accused is innocent; but he starts his arguments that it’s a very sensitive matter, as a person’s life is on stake and jurors should discuss all the factors associated with the case. He is interrupted by most of the jurors as some of them are in a hurry. Somebody has got cinema tickets(M.K Raina #7th juror) for the evening show and he has to reach at home at time to pick up his wife and staying in this meeting any longer is a waste of time for him. Another person also has some important meeting to attend. Almost everybody has some excuse or other for going home or else where. One juror is filled with aghast that how one can kill his own father? He is clear that such person should be killed immediately. 8th Juror tries again and says,” O.K, let’s say he did not kill his father and what is wrong if we discuss the case at least for a little time. I will put up my arguments in favor of the innocence of that accused person and you all may contradict me”.He starts his arguments and soon most of the jurors are in his trap depending on their resistive power. 8th Juror keeps giving his arguments and tries to re-consider all the facts related to the case and many jurors start taking interest in his
  3. 3. arguments. The juror, who has to go to cinema, is frustrated seeing meeting is going on and on. Soon meeting reaches at that interesting point where 8th Juror is supported by 4-5 other jurors. After a few more minutes and 8th juror is able to successfully convince more jurors in his favor and soon only two jurors are left there in his opposition. 8th Juror enacts the last scene of killing as defined in the police report. He analyses whole situation and proves that the person has not killed his father and police has trapped him in a false case. One elder member of Jury, who is still opposing any kind of argument in the favor of accused, breaks down and he cries and tells all the jurors that his own son insults him and does not take care for him, this man should also have been doing same with his old father and he is certain that he has killed his father. He sees the image of his cruel son in the accused person and thus wishes him to be hanged. Scene becomes emotional, the elder juror is crying and telling all other jurors, his own pathetic conditions he has to face at his own home. It’s decided now that accused has not killed his father and all the jurors praise now 8th juror that he and his rationale approach could save the life of an innocent man. What fascinated me about the movie is how the nature of each character is slowly revealed through the process of the discussions and how this is a reflection of their personal beliefs, convictions, notions, prejudices, and cultural & social backgrounds. And this is done without even identifying any of them as belonging to any race or religion, to the extent that they are just referred to as jury one, jury two and so on!! Another impressive aspect of the movie is its attention to detail, as each and every small and sometimes unimaginable nuance of the case is analyzed and debated upon. It's almost like you are a part of the jury, presented with a case, and discover for yourself what could be the reality. I drew from the movie was how bound we are by our prejudices and how impossible it is to be "completely rational". So interwoven are these prejudices with our personalities that they leave their impression on every single decision we ever make.
