Theme: Pearl in the Ocean

This event occurred on
February 3, 2023
Pune, Maharashtra

Have you ever seen an aurora? The shimmering light danced around in the air, illuminating the sky with magic. It is actually a result of the collision of ions and atoms, causing a ring of light in the air like gently blowing curtains. The change in color of these auroras occurs due to small changes in the process. You see how these small changes result in the staggering array of colors blue, green, yellow, and red shape-shifting halos.

You can tutor yourself to pay attention to tiny details and that is when you consciously see every little thing required to build something. This is how you stand out from everyone. You become the “pearl in the ocean”. Unlike precious rocks and millions of other things embedded in the ocean, the pearl emerges from just an oyster, yet leaves its impression in the raging sea. If you stick to your beliefs, your cause, and embody your vision, people who believe what you believe will gravitate to you. You become more diligent and persistent.

The smallest experiences of our insightful speakers have touched thousands/millions of lives! Our distinguished speakers come from a clan of zealous and bright-eyed personalities. In a world of superficiality, we aim to inspire by being granular and dialling in to do the best work, because there’s always more to it than it meets the eyes.
