I will not define TED all over again as many has already done that. I am more concerned to the E of TED, here it represents “entertainment” and it is one regular feature of TED or TEDx events. Entertainment is not just about fun only; it can be helpful in elaborating tough subjects with ease and less time. The best example can be Junoon and Shehzad Roy trying to redefined Poetry of Iqbal in late 90s.
TEDx is coming to Lahore again; where team of TEDxLahore is busy in designing the third edition of the event and the work is underway TEDxAnarkali is coming to add music to the TEDx legacy of the city. Music is the feature of this event to celebrate the E of TEDx.
Normally I avoid writing such posts that mention the certain number of best and worst things. The reason might be the facts that I do not consider anyone not even me to determine some really best or worst things about something that yet has to happen. However, I will justify this post of mine with the human psychology of doing something other than the usual things either because of excitement or because of pride. I have both the reasons for this post so out of the blend created by the excitement and the pride towards TEDxBristol. TEDxBristol is indeed the next big thing happening in Bristol or i batter say West of England tomorrow in Mshed Bristol at 10am. So, here are few things that I am looking forward tomorrow.
During the days I was busy with my studies and exams I have been absent from this blog, I planned to redesign the way this blog has been going on since last two years. Just to make it bit more active I made some decisions and one of them is to start some series. Therefore, this post is the first edition of the series that I planned. This series is about the TED Talks from Pakistan. I will be sharing the best of TED talks from TEDx events that took place in Pakistan just to do my part in spreading and praising some of the ideas. Below is the talk by my childhood hero Imran Khan, who is telling the advantages of never giving up the dreams. The best part I found in it was the list of DOs and DONTs in the time of failure. Have a look and take a listen:
Ideas are something powerful enough to bring change. Another fact is that the current era is an era where a war is going on – The war of ideas. Therefore, the victory in this war is not going to happen because of military might and technology for defense. The war of ideas can only be won by more ideas. Ted is a platform to spread the ideas that deserves to be shared with the mass audience.
