In keeping with the ethos of ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’, TEDxSRCC was an independently organized TED conference organized by the students of Shri Ram College of Commerce on the 28th of October, at Alliance Francaise. The conference did complete justice to its theme ‘Food for Thought’ by providing a wide platter of ideas to ponder upon, to its audience.

The conference kick started with an astounding performance by Ronnie Chibber, an internationally acclaimed sand artist. The most interesting part of his talk was the life lessons that he learnt from a street magician. Next up was Raj Desai, a budding tech entrepreneur, the mind behind the famous ‘WiFi Dustbins’. Raj spoke about his journey from being a student of Commerce to switching lanes to become the Co-Founder of a tech and innovation firm Think Scream. He also stressed upon the significant amount of information available on the Internet and the methodical way to use it efficiently.



The third speaker was Nita Mehta, chef par excellence, and author. Her talk revolved around sharing her recipe for being successful, at being a chef and a best selling writer of cookbooks. Next up was a performance by Varun Narain a puppeteer. His performance concentrated on the emotions of human beings. He poetically used his puppets to impart ideas and subtly conveyed his message, about the boundaries that exist in human society between what is acceptable and what is not.



The next talk was by Paresh Gupta, an alumnus of Shri Ram College of Commerce and the CEO of My Career Architects. This angel investor’s talk focused on his how he made the impossible possible from being a struggling small-town student to an investment banker and finally a successful entrepreneur. The first session ended on a high note with this talk. In the break, the attendees had an amazing opportunity to interact one to one with the speakers.


The second session started off with another great talk by Nikhil Taneja whose topic was ‘ ‘Don’t Be an Asshole’. Kindness would be the word to sum up his speech in one single term. The next speaker was Sanjeev Bikchandani, founder of who spoke along the lines of Business is finding deep consumer insights and providing solutions to it’. The final speaker of the day was Naveen Kasturia, who narrated his tale of chasing his dreams from an engineer to an actor.
