The event had now grown to be one of the biggest events in the university, stimulating ideas and spurring conversation that travels far beyond the walls that surround it.
We create the reality in which we live. With every choice and every decision, we design it. Our choices and our decisions are largely influenced by our outlook on life and what we expect out of it. This varies tremendously among the multitudes inhabiting the world.
Each one of us has a unique pair of lenses through which we see the world. We see what we look for and so everything we see is a perspective. Billions of people, billions of shades which contribute to a grand mosaic of ideas and perspectives. However, this means that there is a huge diversity of thought and ideas yet to be explored and tried. Maybe if we looked at life itself from a different angle or another perspective, we may discover something enthralling. When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

Welcome to the Flipside!
