Atomic Talk Title: You’re On Mute

You are on Mute has been the theme for 2020 and 2021. I gave a thought to this on how metaphorical it is to our lives. You see people talk but you can’t hear the people talking because they are muted. In your life do you want to be seen or you want to be heard? How do you want your voice to be heard, most importantly what is that y ou are doing to be heard? In this talk I will share my story around you are mute!


  1. Retrospect on what is that you are doing to be heard!
  2. Look at what you really want to do and make time for personal growth!
  3. Three things that you have control to change are – you, those around you and the world!
  4. Together we can make a difference!
