Born in the family of a post office clerk in a small village near Banaras, Premchand emerged as an invaluable gem to Indian Literature. Son of a boat-owner from a Tamil Muslim clan, APJ Abdul Kalam paved his way to become the ‘Missile Man’ of India and ultimately the President of our country. Sarojini Varadappan, daughter of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, abandoned a lavish life to devote seven decades of her life for the rehabilitation of calamity survivors and well-being of the cancer patients.
It is personalities like these, who are entitled as ‘The Outliers’, standing out from the crowd. TEDxIITKanpur’16 takes this opportunity to applaud the offbeat people in various fields. Their ideas and thoughts are eccentric but have the potential to bring about a noticeable ‘turn in the trendline’. With motivation, as strong as steel and actions, loud and clear, ‘The Outliers’ engrave an advantageously deep mark on mankind.
Come, share the space with the Outliers, as they spread their ideas, views and thoughts which shall mesmerize you. We welcome you to TEDxIITKanpur on April 3rd 2016.
