“If a man is to survive, he will have learned to take a delight in the essential differences between men and between cultures. He will learn that differences in ideas and attitudes are a delight, part of life's exciting variety, not something to fear.”
― Gene Roddenberry

How alike we are, yet so different, under the big blue umbrella and the vast ocean spread across. Similarly, how likely it is possible to come alike with as one mind, thriving towards one goal, though with diverse thoughts, that one passion to make this world a better place with self-contribution. Innovations, developing, almost all the fronts possessed by humankind and other partakers of our biosphere. Starting from dealing with very issues of basic health and education or different types of pollution to discovering better approaches towards space missions or movements bringing communities together to save nature and the very humankind. It all takes ‘one idea’, ‘one thought’, ultimately joining a group of ‘think a like’s’ or shared approaches to be that ‘one mind’ breaking free of all barbarity, all superstition surrounding us.

Improvisation should be the ‘mool mantra’ (root reason) for the humankind. Our race should come together and venture towards decluttering the junk that has been piled up from ages, to provide the coming ages with enough resources, to build a sanitary living condition. We often say ‘integrity in diversity’ and attach it like a tag line while taking the name of our Nation. But, how sound and clear are we about the topic? How about diving into the depth of these words and present the world with clearer visions!
Thoughts are free to flow. It cannot be enslaved by any means. The better we know how to shape it, the clearer our vision is and the stronger our approach; diversity in thought process only opens new arenas for the populace, a novelty in lifestyle, opportunities to explore. It adds objectives towards our learning process and helps evaluate the outcomes non-biased. Hence, the more positive we are with our thought process, the brighter the result will be.

Therefore, we take this opportunity to bring the most united ones, presenting their distinct thought process, with their commitment towards a prosperous world, on one stage, the stage of TEDxPrahladnager presenting ‘Diverse Thoughts; One mind’
