The Industry Interaction Cell (IIC) of IIM Indore organized the fifth edition of TEDx IIM Indore on July 08, 2018. The theme for the event was ‘Unfurl the Sails’—which symbolizes how one should learn to make use of opportunities coming their way to move forward, braving the mighty ocean of life with wind like challenges and problems.
The event saw participation of prolific speakers from diverse backgrounds like arts, journalism, social entrepreneurship among others coming together to spread and seed ideas that matter and the IIM Indore community as audience – a confluence of bright minds exploring the frontiers of ground breaking ideas.
The event hosted as speakers Mr. Ankit Gupta (Co-founder of Burma Burma), Mr. Sudeep Bhattacharya (One of India’s most sought-after wedding photographers), Ms. Ritika Singh (Actress of “Saala Khadoos” fame and also a kick-boxer), Mr. Chaitanya Lila Das (Former IT-engineer and IITian converted monk at ISKCON), Mr. Prem Panicker (Journalist and Editor with 30 years’ experience and co-founder of Rediff), Ms. Ronitaa Dhanu (Editor of GoodHomes and Home & Design TRENDS) and Ms. Supreet Dhiman (A social entrepreneur striving for a world free of incest abuse).
The audience were intrigued and went in to raptures every time the lights went down and the voices emerged- strong and hopeful. From how to tread on the unconventional paths for their very conventional roles, to ideas to spread awareness about incest abuse, to how to find design in every facet of life – every idea was worth spreading and creating an intellectual adrenaline rush.
The eminent speakers were able to share their ideas with unique power, drawn from their varied life experiences and aimed at igniting new thought and creativity among the audience thus creating ripples of change.
