The Butterfly Effect

The Butterfly Effect

THEME

 "A butterfly flaps its wings in the Amazonian jungle, and subsequently a storm ravages half of Europe" 

"If we could rerun life from the beginning, would it turn out to be the same?"
Little insignificant events can lead to significant results over time. Small even imperceptible changes can have large consequences down the causal chain.
A single pebble thrown in the water can disrupt still water, and create chronicles of ripples. Every single action of ours and every happening in this universe has an impact on something else. 
Everything that you do matters, every move you make, every action you take matters, not just for you but for everybody else too.

Speakers

SPITFIRE/NITIN MISHRA

Rapper & Songwriter

Swaddled in his grandmother’s frosting coated love since childhood, Nitin Mishra was not taught to stand up to hood bullies violently, which is probably why he took to the might of the word so easily. Inspired by the likes of rapper-poets like Bohemia, who deftly spoke to the world in a language comfortable to them, Spitfire overcame his self-consciousness about his English and started working on rhymes for all the Hindi and Urdu poems he had scribbled over years in his notebooks. Thus began Spitfire’s journey into underground hip-hop in India.

His lyrical fluency and way with words became apparent with his contribution to Gully Boy, for which he wrote most of the protagonist, Murad’s rap battles. His single for the feature, ‘Asli Hip-Hop’ was used to introduce a Bollywood dependent audience to the real value of Spitfire’s beloved genre.

His debut EP ‘Paathshala’ is a testament to this vision and creative dexterity. An EP with a profound lyrical quality of poetry that is timeless, is why Spitfire is fondly known to those around him as Little Ghalib: a poet whose words penetrate through you, surpassing time and trend.
