The Shift 2014, I experienced a range of emotions after listening to some of the speakers and meeting them thereafter.
From the seventeen-year-old Aisha Chaudhary who overcame a predicted life expectancy of only one year to have become an accomplished artist today.
Vineeth Vincent, who rocked and taught the crowd with his beat-boxing! This was clearly the favourite session of the day!  I got to learn so much from his talk and yes I can beat-box a bit now 🙂
Sindhu V. the standup comedian from the UK, who was also the anchor of the day, had all of us rolling on the floor laughing! Her “Mojo-Jojo” act….had us in splits. Watch out for her video everybody.
It was nice to meet and listen to Suniti Mathur from Test Rockers who has taught over 1200 globally in SAT. Her story from Mom to an Internet entrepreneur was quite exciting!
Maya Krishna Rao walked and danced for Nirbhaya. The powerful walk stirred everyone’s soul in the audience.
Moitra brought us his shift journey of “I don’t know” from Delhi boy to
superstar music composer of 3 Idiots and the classic Coke ad and now on
to saving India’s folk music traditions.
Khemka mentored us through the crisis facing mankind and the need for
new leaders to emerge.
And then Ani and Vineeth gave us an ex-tempo
concert fusing melodious Buddhist chanting with beatboxing.
It was my pleasure sharing the stage with so many inspirational speakers.
or not to make the Shift to Vedic Maths is a choice open for everybody.
That was the summary of my talk on Vedic Mathematics.
“Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck” – Dalai Lama
( This quote printed on the stage made my day! I could so much relate to it!)
I would like to congratulate and thank the entire team of Shift for a such an amazing and a high voltage conference.
Best Wishes,
