Delving more on the theme, the TEDxMICA team said, "Through the theme 'Map the Gap,' we wanted to let the world know that no gap is uncrossable and no destination is unreachable. Map the Gap is a tale that speaks to each one of us because it touches upon our stories, ideas, and journeys."
Speaking about stories and news, Mr. Chandra said, "The current problem with digital video news is that you start getting information only from an ideological echo chamber. Digital video news and information today is like cassettes and CDs, you can find the story that you want, but you got to go looking for it."
Ms. Palki Sharma Upadhyay said, "Think of the story you want to tell a few decades from now and start writing it from today because the world today is a grand storytelling competition."
