Everybody has a soft yet silent melody constantly playing within them. Few are able to hear it in the very beginning, while others might hear it a little later. That is the silent noise. It is never too late to do things which might have been done a long time ago.
This theme persuades one to dream big, discover and innovate. World’s most renowned entrepreneurs, artists, inventors, teachers- the list is endless, wouldn't have been successful if they had given up way too easily. It is that noise which made them explore new ideas, without any fear of criticism or failure. Advancements in the field of technology, entertainment or design is possible only if people jeopardize to do something which distinguishes them from the ordinary; and this prosperity will hence, make us eligible enough to find the solutions to the complications of our time and in turn will help us build a rational society where we lead a better life in peace,and with improved health conditions.

Just keep your mind calm and listen to that noise. Dare to take a step forward and let the world hear it too, and dance to your beats.

Keeping in accordance with the organization guidelines of the event, our theme 'Silent Noise', is as abstract and diverse as it gets. There are multitudes of ways in which it can be interpreted and will thus, be open to the speakers', and attendees' varying perspectives of it.
