TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
About TEDxAssiRd .
As a Banarasi slices through the quotidian routine, the centuries of history and legacy is but transparent to her. On the road to modernisation, the city is writing new stories every day, yet legacy is fading concomitantly. With every tick of the clock, brilliant minds are losing daylight to achieve, build and create something wonderful.
We await the next generation of thinkers, seekers and leaders. Not the crème de la crème, but the young commoners, driven by deep passion and an intimate relationship with the city. Talents lie latent within each individual, just as unique and just as potent. TEDxAssi is the thinking juice, the budding ground, and platform to spread their ideas across the nation and beyond.
We’ll carry the baton of arts, culture and traditions from yesterday, into the tomorrow of dreams, aspirations and innovation, and marry the two. Varanasi is set to become a global hub, and TEDxAssi is the stepping stone where the journey begins.
