What makes great people great? Is it the stardust? Is it their luck? As fascinating as the creation of something majestic, the innovation becomes tenfold more charismatic when one realizes the struggles that went behind it. With adept skills, one can always figure out ways to cross the fences of limitations to create productions considered to be extraordinary.
Paucity can't always be fought with. Scarcity can't always be left to be dealt with time. But what we can do is develop ourselves and our minds to nurture our skills to survive limitations proudly. Thus, as is rightly said, storms make trees take much deeper roots.
With this, the team of TEDx GGSIPU 2020, brings forth ideas worth spreading of people who had nothing if not determination and willpower packed in their bags, yet they hustled hard tirelessly. Join us in the most talked-about event to meet the people who were not gifted, they worked hard and succeeded on purpose. They bounced higher when they hit the bottom.
