A day to be remembered in the years to come. It was an ardent desire of the Principal, Ms. Deepa Kapoor, to provide a platform to the youth for a confluence of creative ideas and intellectual discussion and TedxYouth@Suchitra Academy was a realisation of that initiative. The theme ofthe event, PAUSE. Reset the way you THINK! Gave a perspective not only to the speakers but also to the audience.
