On April 21, 2018, GD Goenka University organized its 1st TEDx Talk on the theme “The Butterfly Effect”. The theme of “The Butterfly Effect” means that a tiny change in the state of the system can make a significant beautiful difference in the lives of people. The 1st edition opened to an overwhelming full house from people across domains. The program featured 13 speakers who have been a catalyst for change in the society, sharing their stories focusing on the theme. The enriching session was divided into three sessions and the groups were devised in the reflective and proactive way.

Nasir Khan, the youngest Sarpanch of a Muslim village in Haryana, shared his journey and dream of making a 100% literate village. He said: ”Education is the way to power, I have tried to be instrumental in facilitating education in my village with small things like installation of solar power panels and construction of toilets on schools which has increased the enrolment rate of students in schools.” Pooja Pradeep, founder of ‘Letters of Love’ the global youth-led initiative to make a difference to refuge crisis talked about making a difference in people’s lives. With projects like Seeds of Love, Empathy centric curriculum, Pen Pal Project, she wishes to create a typhoon on happiness in the world by connecting communities in the thread of love and empathy.

“This inaugural edition of TEDx was designed to explore the power of ideas, creation, and innovation to bring together a diversity of people, cultures and concepts to create real-world change. It was aimed at inspiring one and about how as individuals and as a community we all have the capacity to stimulate change if we dare. We can build a better world through purposeful dialogue and seize an opportunity to take action.” Prof. Dr. Shrihari, Vice Chancellor, GD Goenka University said while addressing the media.

TEDx events included a mix of live presenters and a screening of TED Talks videos intended to spark deep conversation. Dr. Vishal Rao, the Bangalore based Oncologist, displayed a low-cost voice box (AUM) which allows throat cancer patients to speak even after their surgery. He said: ”Innovate for an individual not for a market. One needs to develop a good yearning to solve a problem.” He believes that “Speech is a right and not a privilege”, thus he decided to make AUM an affordable, accessible and affable product which could convert the food pipe into the voice box. His butterfly moment came from the noise of silence which was affecting many in our country post throat cancer, thus he wanted to awaken the world with their voice. He has extended his wings to an initiative like Copyleft, which is a corollary opposite the popular concept of Copyright.

Nitesh Yadav, a 16-year-old android app developer, has worked on connecting villages with technology using AI. Gauri Angrish, Founder, and CEO at CAREDOSE, has worked on a medicine management venture that uses proprietary technology and packaging to ensure and track medicine adherence in patients while building big data for healthcare entities and public health programs. Other speakers included Prema Iyer, Lifestyle coach Magan Kalra, a renowned business growth coach, Shinjini Kulkarni, a Kathak dancer and actor, Ayush Agrawal, Social entrepreneur and founder of EkkPahel, Vaneet Chaudhary, Pranic healer and musician to name a few.
