Because, we just decided to

Sounds like an impulsive name but to the very opposite, this theme was decided upon after numerous hours of debating, deliberating, arguing, and researching.


It was a result of rejecting every fancy, pretentious, and trending theme that there could be. Looking for that one relatable idea that tempts the audience to your stage comes with a lot of pressure for your first year of TEDx and when it leaves you exasperated is exactly when “because, we just decided to” strikes out. Burned and bummed out, these fellow students landed up in a conversation about Aaron Sorkin's celebrated and criminally underrated TV show "The Newsroom". It sees two veteran TV reporters talking about how they wanted to create a news program that did what news programs were supposed to do; keep the public informed, unbiased and unapologetic. And it is in that, the older reporter says these words, "In the old days of about 10 minutes ago, we did the news well. You know how? We just decided to".
