Theme: Backstage - Drawing The Curtains

This event occurred on
April 7, 2019
Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh

The theme we’re tendering is: ‘Backstage: Drawing The Curtains’. It personifies the spirit of the TED community in the most thought-invoking abstract sense bringing forth the intrigue and diversity of the talks. We’d bring forward the true change-makers in our social landscape. Women and men who have for long sacrificed their own personal endeavours of financial and social stability in a bid to help society without the prejudiced distinction or cast or economic status (two factors that are still prevalent in our country as hurdles to development) Perhaps, through the success of this talk we’d show people that the pursuit for the betterment of our society isn't an unattainable notion, but rather a meaningful pursuit.
