An idea worth spreading

Ideas don’t strike when you think about it, it is a moment, a fraction of second, a flash of light, a ring of a bell and aha there is a brilliant idea. No matter how much one forces himself or herself and tries to jot down everything on the pen or paper, the ultimate idea come only at the most unusual places, whether it’s the Archimedes bathroom or sitting below an apple tree. The ideas that have the capability to change the world, that give meaning to a person’s life, the idea that you know in your heart is the best no matter what others say you just want to pursue it to completion. But the story doesn’t end there, what follows is the strength, the courage, the optimism and most importantly the belief to pursue the idea.

My TED story

I, while organizing a TEDx event, thus want to nurture the spark of Idea. Idea always has the capability of changing the world and creating meaning to someone’s life. The main objective of organizing this TEDx event is to gather illustrative speakers from all corners of living and to share their experiences about the wonderful journey called life. I believe that from all the discussion and sharing in the TEDx event, we will be able to rethink and reshape the happenings of tomorrow.
I would like to share such stories of ideas, dreams, aspirations and fulfilling dreams, stories of the moments when ideas strike and people madly pursue their passions to the end. The world will be a better place for those people who believe in ideas, ideas which are worth sharing and worth caring.
