When you are in a room with ten achievers speaking about their lives and ideas that build their lives, you are stuck with one thought – that they think with their hearts and not their brains. I have just come back from a wonderful brainstorming session from Kumbalgarh where Cerebrate 2009 was held.Organised by Club Mahindra, the event is an unconference . The achievers included Cmdr. Satyabrate Dam who has scaled the two poles besides being an acclaimed mountaineer, best selling author Tim Murari, IIT-ian turned agriculturist Madhavan who is a pioneer in creating entrepreneurship among farmers, wildlife photographer, filmmaker and naturalist Kalyan Varma, singer and actor Andreah Jeremia, social activist , Rashmi Dhanvani , designer Abhijit Bansod, RJ Anjaan and entrepreneurs Sriram Bharatam and Suresh Sambandam .
It was a celebration of passions – thats what I call it .Inspired, overwhelmed and humbled after meeting so many interesting people, Im now charged to do something on my own as well.And one of my best moments – spotting a falling star at 4 am in the morning under a jewelled sky..
