Session type
Lightning Talk

Technical level


The objective of the talk is to tell that it is OK to say "NO" at times. It is OK to be a little different from others.


We all have been in situations where the answer we wanted to give was a 'no', but we ended up saying 'yes'. It could be because of the following reasons,
1.) Peer-pressure
2.) To feel to be part of something
3.) Nobody wants to be 'forever-alone'
or may be something else.

Lets discuss this out as I tell you it is fine to say no even though the world wants to hear you say yes.
