TEDxDharamshala: Partners

We are only 10 days away from the main conference and the mood here is electric. In the days that follow we’ll introduce to you, the remaining 5 speakers for TEDxDharamshala 2017, and give you an opportunity to go behind the scenes. This journey has been amazing and as the conclusion approaches near, it’s time we thank the awesome people who helped us get to this point. We’ve had a wonderful team working for the event, but there are many outside who contributed to this venture with the same zeal and enthusiasm. No amount of words can thank them enough for their contribution, but we will still try.

TEDxDharamshala: Experiential

The socially accepted norm is that humans begin learning when they start going to school. We have based our entire society, regardless of borders, on this very principle. So, intellect and ability are often judged based on the educational certifications that an individual has to show. But is that where it ends? If we look at all the great minds that have been recorded in history, no one fits perfectly into this pattern. All the revolutionaries and pioneers have all had one thing in common, which was learning from experience. Learning from observation, and application of theories, both original and existing.

We at TEDxDharamshala want to take our audience beyond these shackles that the society has bound us all in. the first step is to realize that it is an experience that counts far more than theoretical knowledge. We want you to change lanes and have a taste of all that is out there in whatever short span of time you have with us. While the mind-blowing talks by our speakers will help us achieve this aim, we are taking it a little further, with a space we call, The Experiential.

We all want to leave a mark on this world. While some do so by helping themselves, others reach out to those around them and change their lives. So, even though many of us dream and aspire to become Shah Rukh Khan or Madhuri Dixit when we grow up, the latter kind of people are the true heroes of this world. You won’t find these people on the cover of every magazine. But if you try and look for them, every town will have at least one human leaving an indelible mark on humanity.

The importance of an idea through its visualization goes back to the days of the early man. When the Homo sapien didn’t know how to put his thoughts to words, he drew. Over time, art has evolved as an expression of a higher understanding requiring a discipline of its own to fully appreciate the depth of a vision. Artists over the course of time have shaped societies with their art. So fundamental is an artist’s work in our lives that you won’t find a single household without some form of a painting hanging on the walls, whether it’s a replica or paintings of deities.

TEDxDharamshala Adventure: The Journey of a Beverage

One of the things that make TEDxDharamshala a conference to look forward to is the very city that we host this event in. The beauty of Dharamshala cannot be defined in words, no matter how eloquent you are in the art of writing. It’s an experience that one has to have to understand the emotions that cannot be conveyed otherwise. But the essence of Dharamshala lies as much in the culture of the people who live here, as it does in the geographic magnificence. So, when you visit Dharamshala for the most-awaited event of the year we want you to leave with a lot more than just the main conference. With that aim, we would like to introduce you to the TEDx Adventure that we have planned for our attendees.

The future lies in the hands of those who will follow. No matter how hard your struggle, how sweet the victory or how unifying the revolution had been, its fate will always depend on the next generation. The generation that has only heard of what you have done and not felt it. The generation that will reap what you have sowed. Thus, for any

nation, it is important that its youth is better than those who came before them, especially for a people in crisis. So, when the successors of a legacy of struggle are like Tenzin Dhardon Sharling, hope lives on.

Brave Enough to Die

 

Oft time when trying to assess our courage, one wonders, am I brave enough to die? We hear stories of those who gave their lives for what they believed in. Be these myths or real-life incident, we glorify embracing death as the testament of courage. What we often forget is that more than dying, it is important to live for a cause worth dying for. Even the chicken that gets picked from a lot, saves the lives of all the others over whom he was chosen. But the fate of all those he had saved remains the same.
