Theme: Trigger - the path towards unknown

This event occurred on
March 18, 2017
Salem, Tamil Nadu

We all have a passion to follow, things we love to do. The world has much to offer. But, how do we find the things that brings warmth to our heart?
Obviously, by exploring things we haven't done yet.
Through this event, We hope to trigger the urge to explore the unknown, by breaking two arch-enemies of passion "fear and hesitation", which we think is the most crucial act to do in finding our passion.
