Unravelling the Purpose of Being
A team of 40+ imaginative minds got together and decided to pursue the legacy of TEDxVIPS. Months of incessant hard work and diligence boiled down to curating the 2022 edition of TEDxVIPS to ‘Unravel the Purpose of Being’. The event unfurled on 25th March 2022, drawing its meaning from an assorted panel of prodigious individuals with a strong vision to help others by narrating their experiences. These included Piyush Mishra, Shree Amogh Lila Prabhu, and Shaheen Malik, among others sharing the meaning of life in their authentic way. Being able to feel every word spoken on stage, our delirious audience was nothing but speechless. The event could really ‘unravel’ its true potential with the support of its partners like Brew House Tea, Bunk Pages, Clearsip, My Choice Bakery and Cornitos. The eye-opening experience ended with tons of attendees asking the organisers if it would happen again the following year.
