In a bid to revive the culture of intellectual gathering and free thinking in Hyderabad, TEDx (Technology, Entertainment, and Design) organised Tedx Charminar with the support of Broadridge Financial Solutions, India, at the Taj Krishna on Sunday.
The theme was ‘Look Closely’, where ideas that capture a paradigm shift or propose a fresh framework were portrayed. The idea was to showcase the power of ideas that empower and inspire action.
Leading thinkers from diverse disciplines attended and presented their big ideas. These included renowned authors Gurucharan Das and Anita Nair, academician and CEO V Raghunathan, historian Narendra Luther, veteran journalist Hussain Zaidi, painter prodigy Vilas Nayak and many more.
Narendra Luther spoke about birth, evolution and death of cities and their reaction to globalisation and heritage loss.
