All of the most glorious achievement in the history of mankind are simply started by a mind that think beyond what others don't. Just like what Columbus thought about the other side of Atlantic, or what Steve Jobs think about personal computers. They think far ahead , they free their minds. Bandung has inspiring personas that think as ingenious as Columbus and Jobs in their own right. The ones that imagine the extent possibilities of the future. The ones that believe in their dreams. And they started it with an "Expanded Mind".
