Theme: Unlearn The Familiar

November 24th, 2012

About this event

The illiterate of the 21st century are not those who can’t read and write but those who can’t learn, unlearn and re-learn.
-Alvin Toffler
An idea is not exclusive. It occurs to many musing minds at the same instant. But, it needs much more than an occurrence to make a difference. It needs a unique manifestation that breaks the shackles of familiarity that the very same idea brings with it. The difficulty lies, not in the idea but in escaping from the notions of it which ramify into the corners of our minds.
While thinking and learning lead to ideation, Unlearning the Familiar leads to innovation which forms the very backbone of sustenance.
TEDxMSRIT is an event in time and space, exposing you to many an inspiration which will force you to push the boundaries, explore the unexplored and pursue them to a successful culmination.
