Theme: Demystifying Ethos

This event occurred on
February 23, 2019
4:00pm - 9:00pm IST
(UTC +5.5hrs)
Bangalore, Karnataka

Demystifying Ethos fundamentally revolves around the discovery of the ‘defining character’ of a
community, culture, era, or person. It aims at reflecting the resounding spirit of everything around
us, and deconstructing the essence of it all.
Through this theme, we aspire to create a platform for eminent speakers, to discuss the prevalent
‘ethos’ which forms the core of their society, culture, domain, or profession. To discuss those constants
which continue to prevail in the changing times. To discuss those radical changes which are
becoming the essence of new avenues. And to discuss the emerging seeds of thought, creation,
and imagination.
TEDxNMIMSBangalore- Demystifying Ethos- will be about revelation of practices, phenomenon,
attitudes, and occurrences which reintroduce the the hidden gems of our lives, that have come to
define our past, our present and our future!
