I am the box | Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra | TEDxYouth@JPIS

   TEDx Talks
   Published: 1 week ago


Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, who engaged, empowered, and enthralled the youth in every sense of those words, with his talk titled: “I am the Box.” He has inspired and broken convention with each one of his movie masterpieces, and did the same on the stage of TEDxYouth@JPIS, encouraging each of the audience to not think out of the box, but instead look within, be the box oneself. Seeing the world from his side of the lens let us witness the unleashing of genius.

A director. A writer. A producer and also the man who made a difference, Mr. Rakesh Omprakash Mehra does not fail to abide by the rods that his own movie Rang De Basanti unleashed. While he won four National Awards and was India’s official entry to the Oscars 206-2007, his work is not just confined to the realms of theatre, but goes far beyond that. Sir is currently on a mission to give slum dwellers their basic sanitary rights. He has helped build over 200 toilets in the last four years and continues to do so. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
