Celebration of Order at TEDxJakarta 12: Niyata

Join me to celebrate unbelievable order at the most awaited event in our city, TEDxJakarta 12: Niyata! TEDxJakarta finally host their 12th event in Saturday, June 10th, 2017 at Jakarta Art Building.
“Niyata in Sanskrit is the root of nyata in Bahasa Indonesia, carries the meaning of being real, distinct, or true. TEDxJakarta 12: Niyata evolves around the celebration of order, abides to the notion that even nature most often works in alluring patterns, precipitated by the sum of many tiny-yet-meaningful and methodical inflections.”
