Inspiring young minds

Students of CMR National PU College organised ‘TEDxYouth@Brookefield’ on December 10 at Ekya School, ITPL Road Campus. Six speakers from different walks of life spoke at the independently organized TED event on the theme of ‘Infinite Ideation’.

The event exposed young minds to distinguished personalities in their chosen fields, who coaxed the audience to make their own artwork and their very own idea.

At the event, TED Talk videos and live speakers sparked a deep discussion and connection in a small group. The speakers showed that there were absolutely no limits to the potential, ideas, achievements and ultimately world change that can be brought about by our youth.

The speakers were Abhay Rangan (CEO at Veganarke, an engineering student and animal rights activist), Dr K Varadarangan (music connoisseur, RF Design specialist), Narendra Ratnakaram (Director of Cloud Operations at SAP Ariba), Dr Vivek Sanghi (freelance consultant), Dilip Adiga (Director, Luculent Technologies and Medici Tech) and Saravanan G (Founder, TechSparx).

The team organizing the event said, “Here at TEDxYouth@Brookefield, we wish to empower peers and enable them to ideate on their own.

The learning was that ideas form bigger ideas and that errors are inevitable, but are only a part of the journey of ideation. And the knowledge that ideas, when thought for good, can make a big difference. Our event also provides a platform for people to interact with those who have made a difference in the lives of others, to get motivated and to also get a rich experience.”
