We live in a world where ideas float even in thin air and with the fast emerging wireless and infrared technologies- they literally do. India is not exempted from this surge as we are coming up with indigenous versions of products, services and machines which are way more cost-effective.

The future is driven by innovation and sustainability which in turn is fueled by ideas and that is why events like TED are important because you get exposure to different fields and myriad of ideas. TED Talks are powerful and capable of influencing masses. We know that necessity is the mother of all inventions, but ideas are the father and TED talks create an environment of looking into our minds producing ideas that can benefit us, our life style and the lives of those around us.

Here, at TEDx MITSG, as engineering students who yearn to design and build a better and improved world, our theme "Maneuvering Ingenuity" is the best way to create a culture that fosters innovation and encourages us to take small steps which empowers our future world.
