‘Only in the shattering can the rebuilding occur’. The essence of our TED event draws parallels to that of every other — ideas unfetter us to ‘shatter’ the glass ceiling that confines our yearning for erudition, to disintegrate the boundaries that impede the vigour and cogency of our voice and opinions and to fragment the pessimism and timorousness that engulfs us. Shattering the undesirable lays the path to achieving the desirable and to letting forth all the seminal, ingenious ideas that would steer the world towards boundless success. At TEDxYouth@JPIS 2018, we celebrate this ‘Shattering’ of our extremities where speakers from multifarious disciplines embrace the mic, invigorating, intriguing and inciting the youth through scintillating discussions to recognise their competency to unfurl and unleash the unprecedented might of their thoughts and ideas.
TEDxYouth@JPIS is an independently organised TED event hosted annually at Jayshree Periwal international School, Jaipur. TEDx, a subsidiary of TED, is a program of local, independently organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Two of the most-watched TEDx talks in India at the moment are from our previous events, in Due to the immense success of the previous editions of TEDxYouth@JPIS - which have featured people such as the acclaimed director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, cricket-phenomenon Suresh Raina, football legend Bhaichung Bhutia, transgender activist Laxmi Narayan Tripathi, India Today’s group editorial director Raj Chengappa, and media Moghul Tarun Chauhan - we felt it best to keep the flame alight and host an event this year, and to continue the tradition of innovation and excellence which has been established here at TEDxYouth@JPIS.
