TEDxMICA 2017: Panorama
TEDxMICA was the first ever independently organized TEDx event by any business school in the country. In line with the spirit of constant innovation, we are proud to announce TEDxMICA 2017. This year's theme is Panorama. As humans we have the gift to capture each and every detail around us on an unlimited expanse. However, this doesn't fascinate us any further. We are blind to the reality that is not discernible through our eyes. Thus, the enthusiasm to explore this unknown is bound by certainty. What are we if we not know who we are? To question one's biases, to understand the other, to give in to the vast panorama that we seek to view. This year at TEDxMICA 2017, we give you the lenses that let you into the vision of those who sought to behold the 'Panorama.'
