கற்றது கைமண் அளவு, கல்லாதது உலகளவு!!("Katrathu Kai Mann Alavu, Kallathathu Ulagalavu") meaning "What you have learned is a mere handful; What you haven't learned is the size of the world". We believe we know a concept and are doyen at it, but rather we are a mere dot in the wide Earth which is evolving and she has many Depths which are yet to be explored. The event has many depth explorers who would be sharing their extent of exploration in their own territories.
