Who would have thought that a falling apple would have led Sir Isaac Newton to discover gravity? How could a boycott movement end a two-hundred-year British rule in India? How did a few hundred apolitical youth, demonstrating at Chennai's Marina Beach, spark off the historic Pro-Jallikattu protests?
Throughout history, a single thought has often been the spark that drives a seemingly insignificant act, which has the potential to become a revolution. This year, TEDxNapierBridge focuses its spotlight on the atomic sparks that spawn the incredible changes that our community is witnessing and their origins. We aim to showcase how cause leads to an effect, how thought transforms into action via TEDxNapierBridge2019's theme: Think, become.
Welcome to TEDxNapierBridge 2019 where we will seek to challenge and reshape our core beliefs about today's reality through thinkers, dreamers, and mavericks who offer bold new perspectives.
We believe that ideas get traction only when communities and families are personally involved and ideas are made real and accessible. That is why we invite you to the famous Egmore Museum Theatre on August 11 to access the people and ideas that make Chennai so dynamic. You are inviTED!
