This event occurred on

(UTC +5.5hrs)
Jalandhar, Punjab

This event is about who you are. It is about igniting the masses with your individuality, because one spark can create a wildfire.

There’re no skylines that you cannot measure, and no boundaries that you cannot go beyond.
Our theme ‘Kaleidoscope of Perspective’, shows the varied mindsets an avid thinker of today holds. Perspective cannot be defined, because everyone builds their own. The theme of our event not only brings in and gathers all the perspectives on a single platform, but also gives them an opportunity to bloom and prosper.

The theme of our event reflects the ideals of TED itself, multi-disciplinary, and open to ideas and contribution. Because we believe that each one of us is unique, and stands out with their own individuality, their own perception.
