Bevy is happy to partner in the 3rd edition of TEDxFMS, hosting inspiring speaker sessions and their stories which is to be held on 27th August, 2017, Sunday at University of Delhi, North Campus. The theme for this year’s TEDxFMS is Let’s Rise. They made a beautiful depiction of their theme in form of poetry:
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still we rise!
To us it signifies the current scenario of India and motivates us to strive for success. If we compare current opportunities at hand with our past, we see that in early 90s path of liberalization in Indian economy resulted in doubling of middle class, as over 500 million people moved out of poverty in less than two decades. Today we can rightly say that history is repeating itself as every household is presented with hopes and opportunity, as the youth of the country rises with the possibilities to be the change they want to see with the help of science, technology and creativity.
Today, there is room for each and every one to make his mark on the world with right talent and ability. There are no more geographical limitations for innovations. People get appreciated from all over the world if they present the potential to lead the change. Therefore the time has come when youth of nation decides to rise and the spark is being initiated by Delhi University’s Lets Rise – TEDxFMS.
