As Henry Ford once said, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” When the TEDx OC got together to plan TEDxIIFTDelhi this year, little did they know that it would turn out to be such a massively successful event! Their endless meetings, late-night brainstorming sessions and the hours spent slogging over the on-stage decorations were all worth it in the end!
Visions are intangible and non-existent, in the sense that they exist only in the mind. And yet, they are the most powerful things in the world. Acting as catalysts and stimulants, they have turned the tides many a time. This year’s theme ‘Envisage Evoke Enlighten’ aimed to get in one place all the pace-setters and future-limbers, icons and non-conformists who have envisaged something that spurred them on and evoked their spirits and took them on an uncharted territory where they went ahead to enlighten the path for others. This edition of TEDxIIFTDelhi 2017 aimed at bringing together an eclectic bunch of crusaders who sought to change something, turned their visions into reality and made the world a better place by their deeds.
With an extremely diverse set of speakers ranging from Javed Akhthar and Suhasini Haider to Somdev Devvarman, Shiv Khera and Karishma Mehta (of ‘Humans of Bombay’ fame), this edition of TEDx definitely set the bar high!
