Theme: Calm out of the Commotion

This event occurred on
September 9, 2021
New Delhi, Delhi

For years and decades, the human race has been hustling, be it, to live the dream or to just survive and have been viewing slow living as unproductive and meaningless. To make it big, we often wipe out the line that helps us differentiate between personal and professional life.
Looking back at 2020- perspectives, ethos and lives have changed. Isolated yet in the midst of chaos. The listeners would take away the importance of pausing to catch their breath, come up for air amidst the racing mob, know how the idea of love, physical intimacy, social interaction, work and life changed amidst the pandemic and how to cope with the unpredictable.

Recovering from the deadly pandemic, To step in back would be overwhelming for some and laid-back for others. We, at TEDxCVS believe any time is a great time for self-discovery and as we step ahead towards normalcy, let’s also come closer to ourselves and thus, I believe this would be the perfect time to introduce the theme “Calm out of the commotion” and strike the conversation.
