History has been evident of the fact that Nagpur is a geographical Centre of India with ideas worth spreading! Ambazari Lake represents Nagpur and also throws light on how the city's lakes have now been diminishing.Ambazari Lake is an important tourist attraction in Nagpur. It is famous for being the largest lake in the city of Nagpur and is surrounded by mango trees, hence named as Ambazari. The name TED Ambazari Lake has thus been chosen to celebrate Nagpur, both with its virtues and vices! TEDx Ambazari Lake will give us an opportunity to create a truly unique event that will unleash new ideas, inspire and inform and will enable us in celebrating Nagpur and all it's availabilities.

"Rhythm of Resilience and Innovation" perfectly captures the spirit of our TEDx event, in which each speaker showcases a different aspect of the human experience and area of expertise. They weave together a symphony of perseverance and invention via their varied experiences. Together, their tales demonstrate the strength of the human spirit, flexibility, and inventiveness in overcoming obstacles and advancing society. Come explore with us the patterns of inventiveness and resiliency found in the varied pursuits of humankind. People become more resilient as they mature, acquire new information, and improve their ability to think and control themselves. It takes innovation, frequently in the technology sector, to improve the results of sustainable development and provide long-term resilience.
