TEDxYouth@OIS is an initiative that was started by the students of Oberoi International School in Mumbai, India. We decided on the theme of "Cosmos", because it was an apt description of the kind of speakers we hoped to showcase: people who pushed the limits and went above and beyond the limits that were set on them. Space might have been called the "final frontier" to explore by many, but to a person with ideas, there is no limit to what what they can achieve: there is no final frontier.
