About TEDx, x = independently organised event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxIITPatna, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxIITPatna event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

THEME

Heraclitus, the Greek philosopher, once said and rightly said, 'Change is the only constant'. The only inevitable. Permanence is an illusion and everything lives in a process of constant change. Change, want it or not, has encroached and will encroach into each one of life's aspects. Be it nature's transitions from one season to another or the transformation of a caterpillar to a beautiful butterfly or the evolution of the man from apes, everything in this universe is susceptible to change. This simple yet deep concept of change, if usurped into life, can create great differences. The same applies to the various pains in life that man is agonised with. The darkness today will have to change into the brightest light tomorrow. The gloom surrounding today is also in the process of changing into most joyous glee tomorrow. Presenting to you the theme of 2nd edition of TEDxIITPatna. "Metamorphosis". The idea is to hear from the experts themselves on how change has affected today's technology, entertainment and most importantly, the people and the society.
