A contagious virus that is spreading!!!-- TED Talk by Kiran Bir Sethi

Sponsored Links

What flashes across your mind when you hear a word like "contagious"?
Yes, Common cold, fever, etc that comes on to our mind but have you ever observed that laugh is contagious, inspiration is contagious, passion is so often contagious.

Here Kiran BirSethi discovered that "I can" is also contagious... Yes, I found its so true by the time everyone raised up and gave round of applause for her presentation. Men and women with this "I can" turned out to be great men and women. Gandhi who is a great leader is contagious to "We can".

Here in this video Kiran BirSethi starts her presentation by saying why not billion or more people in India are not contagious to "I can"? Then she shares her story by saying that she got this "I can" when she was 17 and after experiencing it, she wished to have it when she were seven.

She found if at all some one can ignite the children around with this contagious "I can" the whole Indian can change and see a new revelation. She did by taking her school children to make in scent sticks for 8 hour such that the children understood about child labour, then they gone out distributing them in public by saying prevent "child labour". The children not only proved to be good citizens but also proved themselves in academics by obtaining marks greater than those other top ten schools.

This contagious did not stop here, all children walked up to police station, municipal cooperation by saying realize the children in society.
The results of this are outstanding and amazing which never happened in the history of India. In Ahmadabad the traffic was closed down and roads were turned out to be play grounds saying to children "You can". On 15th Aug 2009, she launched another program empowering 100,000 children across India saying to children take one problem take one week to change a billion lives. The results were out standing again; the children were finding solution for diversified problems like...loneness, filling of pot holes on roads, alcoholism and 32 children stopped 16 child marriages in Rajasthan.

Yes, "I can" is truly contagious it started in River side school with 200 children and spread across Ahmadabad, Rajasthan, Hyderabad and many other cities and states.

I love the last statement that she made,

"If not we, who? If not now, when?"

Finally, I am now infected!
I hope you all catch this spreading virus....

Kranthi Wonderful! You could get hold of a wonderful TED talk and then you could understand the spirit of it properly. Yes, we all can do many things. We must be able to ignore the trivialities in life; then we can look at it in a macroscopic way and we can help in eradicating social evils. Well done! Vijaya Ratna

Hi Kranthi, She in a very innovative way explained the children about the child labour and I think it is the best way to make everyone aware of the global issues and take measures to eradicate them just by chanting the mantra,"WE CAN" ! Lets contaminate others with this!!:)
