What could be a better platform than a TEDx talk to discuss ideas, innovations and inspire the world? Everyone has a story to share, an anecdote to reckon upon and a wide range of emotions to express. What more, every ounce of detail in an ordinary humans’ life could bring war-footing changes in someone else’s. We learn from our own self but we choose to be taught by others, by the great heights of success they’ve achieved, by the mistakes they had committed. It’s all a game of quid pro quo.

Here’s what awaits you at TEDxAIIMSBhubaneswar. Seize this opportunity to attend one of the most celebrated events of the world and indulge yourself in the magic of life. With speakers from different social, cultural and economic backgrounds, there are oodles of stories to hear, plenty of standpoints to give a thought to and a mammoth of ardor to experience.
