TEDx PICT 2017: Life in Technicolor is all set to bring colors to Pune on 30th Sept. Are you ready?

Stop. Close your eyes. Imagine you just discovered a brand new color. It’s never seen before, never heard of before and never even imagined before. But there it is! You see it, all vivid and beautiful. And now you can’t even unsee it, can you?

Life in Technicolor?


How would discovering a new color change your life? How would it change the way you see the world? How would it change who you are? Now, imagine you were still in the black-and-white era. Every image is just a fraction of grey. You wish you could see all the oranges in that sunset, don’t you? You wish you could see the blue in that sky, and all those quivering rainbows on that soap bubble. Now imagine those black and white pictures went Technicolor. The colors dance wildly before your eyes. It’s all so explosively real. Mind. Blown.
