This event will showcase luminaries, fighters and believers who never gave up in the face of adversity and rose to the pinnacle of success, fame and recognition purely on the basis of their talent, hard work and perseverance. Handpicked among the many success stories of our country, these personalities will motivate, engage and influence young minds to be a contributor and a giver to the society by making a difference. The event will also present our very own homegrown young students who have been groomed through the year to be a TED ed student speaker. The explorations planned by the TED ed community took them step by step through the process of self discovery and infused confidence in them to speak their mind and their ideas to the world at large. We are extremely thrilled and proud to host them on our very own stage.
