Embracing the stage of TEDxIITKanpur, Supriya led a voyage of words which structured around the role of stories in impacting our mindsets, and them being a measure to interact with the world and understand it better. Sharing her own journey, interestingly, in the form of a story, to the audience as to how she explored multiple aspects of life in terms of career prospects, only to find out that she couldn’t find her inner self and passion in whatever she had been doing. Then, reminded of the habit of her grandmother of telling her bedtime stories instilled the thought of storytelling as an effective way of expressing leading to entrepreneurial build-up of mind. Following her passion, ‘Josh Talks’, is now delivering at a national level, in various cities and various stratas of the society, recollecting and improving this somewhat lost art of storytelling.
