In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).

Ayushi Lahiry

Student
Ayushi Lahiry is a high school student with a passion for just about anything that is shrouded in controversy, inspires curiosity and dialectic regarding the validity of claims surrounding the topic. She enjoys reading books critically acclaimed and forming judgements accordingly. She also appreciates a wide variety of music and films.

Krithik Rock

Student
Krithik Medwin Rock is a seventeen-year-old student at NPSi who is probably just excessively pretentious and eloquent besides heavily-opinionated. Possessing an ardent affinity for public policy and philosophy, he could never shy away from a debate and regularly following sport; he has never had a week go by without football for as long as he can remember. When not travailing in the best interests of his scholastic deadlines, he can be sought solitary and deep in thought or in the forefront of a fiery debate.

Priyankar Kandarpa

Student
Priyankar Kandarpa is a student in his final year at NPS and an aspiring journalist and political scientist. He is deeply passionate about the humanities, particularly History, economics and Literature. He is an avid reader who also spends time on prognostication.

Rishi Agrawal

Student
Rishi Agrawal is currently studying IB at NPS international school. He intends to pursue either engineering or law in the future. Although he has a wide, ever-changing range of interests he has always loved the art of public speaking, science fiction, football, and squash- in no particular order.

Shruti Pathak

Student
I'm a 16 year old student who likes to draw, watch shows, and sleep in my free time (or when I'm supposed to be studying). I'm also someone who feels like an absolute narcissist when I write a paragraph about myself, but here's my shot at it anyway. I'm a personified oxymoron, a labeled pessimist who wants to desperately better the world; and I do it the only way I know how: by creation, by expression, and by trying to be the best version of myself (that last one's still a work in progress). I think I'm too young to know my place in the universe right now, but I hope my efforts have made a dent in its expanse.

Srinjana Sriram

Student
My name is Srinjana Sriram and I am an NPSi student. I'm your ordinary teenager who enjoys reading, television, and the occasional political debate. One of my primary aspirations is to leave behind a tangible, positive impact on the world in whatever way I can. I hope to be a source of inspiration for others as they embark on their journey of self-growth, as they come to understand that fulfillment comes not only from satiating one's own desires but from ameliorating the quality of the lives of those around them as well, even if it's only by a little.

Trisha Unnikrishnan

Student
I'm a 16 year old student at NPSi, just entering the IB programme. Other than attending MUNs, I enjoy reading, writing, traveling, swimming and watching TV shows that usually dictate my short-term career goals.
