Aurora : The Atom of Ambition


The atom of ambition is the smallest, indivisible essence of one’s journey towards the greater good. These atoms of aspiration and faith could represent an idea or a thought that has the potential of pushing us towards achieving a blissful future and guiding us to a utopia. It is perhaps a similar feeling that one feels when the night first breaks into the dawn, that shines with the golden rays of light shattering the night’s blindness and illuminating its very being. This is what Aurora stands for: the night’s atom of ambition, that leads it towards a promising dawn. Aurora promotes the idea of hope, the beginning of a new day, a new chance for happiness and advancement. During the ongoing pandemic, when the entire human race has been put to the test of tolerance and when this perpetual struggle feels like the never-ending night, the whole world is sustaining itself on the sole plank of hope; the hope that aurora will denounce the darkness and give us the strength to start over and come out even stronger. Aurora is not only a symbol for optimism but also reminiscent of the Aurora Borealis, a phenomenon also known as ‘Northern Lights’. Hope is an amalgamation of people's beliefs and faiths and in the same way Aurora Borealis is a wholesome fusion of delicate ripples of green, blue, pink and purple light which float through the night sky highlighting the overlapping of different colours and themes that results in a nature’s wonder that is the beacon of hope and happiness for all humankind. We at TEDxKIITUniversity, believe that a vast dawn of ideas is the peculiarity of our century, and that in that aurora our world will, once again, find magnificent radiance. With the help of the ideas that flow through our speakers TEDxKIITUniversity aims at inspiring our audience to have and believe in their own ideas and introduce their atom of ambition. We believe that for as long as the atom of ambition is alive, no shadow of the night shall be without a dawn of hope.
