He Dared to Speak Up.

He Dared to Speak Up.

I recently wrote a press release called "Don't Wait for Someone to Speak Up on your Behalf". And as the title suggests, the article highlighted the importance of using your voice to speak up in situations where change is needed, whether for your personal benefit or for the benefit of others.


Today, I was very inspired to read a story in the Telegraph (UK Newspaper) about a young man by the name of Ketan Aggarwal, who spoke up after being subjected to unacceptable verbal abuse. Ketan, who is an avid gym goer, found himself on the receiving end of abuse from his gym instructor because he dared to question the suitability of music used during the exercise class.


This bully of an instructor who was aware of Mr Aggarwal being Autistic and therefore intimidated by direct confrontation, felt emboldened enough to repeatedly shout derogatory comments at Mt Aggarwal in front of the whole class. This was obviously a ploy to deter anyone else from speaking up in future.

Did anyone speak up and challenge the instructor on Mr Aggarwal’s behalf? No, they did not, even though they shared the same opinion on the music issue.


But this is where the story gets interesting, in contrast to the shouting abusive instructor; Ketan Aggarwal knew that he also had a voice that would eventually be heard. After making a formal complaint Mr Aggarwal was offered a refund but this was not a satisfactory outcome and so, in the following weeks he went to work on learning his legal rights, spending hours at the public library pouring over law books and reading papers on similar cases taken to court. Ketan knew he was up against a well-established and respected health club, so he needed to have a tight case of which he intended to represent himself.


He Won

Not only did Ketan comfortably win the case outright and receive compensation, he also managed to keep his dignity throughout. He found the inner strength to say “NO, this is unjust, unfair and unacceptable”, and his voice was heard. You can read the detailed story about Ketan Aggarwal here.

What would you have done in Mr Aggarwal’s place, would you have used your voice to affect change?

As you may have guessed, the instructor was removed from his job as a consequence of using his voice in the wrong way to hurt and intimidate others. Ketan Aggarwal on the other hand was rewarded for using his voice in the right way, to achieve postive change and justice.
Let’s be inspired by Mr Aggarwal and use our voices wisely to change the world for the better.
