Hyderabad, 17th March 2021: TEDxIITHyderabad is a group of highly motivated students from various disciplines who promise to provide the audience with a memorable experience at a global event featuring world-class speakers from a plethora of fields.

This year the event is based on the theme “Let’s Play (un)safe!” with TEDxIITHyderabad and is scheduled for 21st March 2021 from 10 am to 4:30 pm IST.
About the theme:
Risk-taking and playing unsafe is being redefined in the present world context. Breathing life through the Pandemic era, which is just as facing a war-like situation from all fronts, people are pushed to their extremes to come and rethink their comfort positions. Some time risks come crashing in the life uninvited, while other times you venture out towards it. Learning to play unsafe is the only safest paradigm.
List of speakers for TEDxIITHyderabad 2021:
Vimal Chandran – Visual Artist
Aruna M. Bahuguna – Indian Police Service – Director General of Police [Retired]

These personalities through their work have shown us the true meaning of stepping out of our comfort zone, personally and professionally and achieving new heights while playing it unsafe.
Highlighting the importance of this event at TEDxIIT Hyderabad, Mr. Varun Perumalla, Overall Head and Licensee of TEDxIITHyderabad, said “The idea is to inspire people to redefine the concept of “taking risks.” We’ve adapted ourselves to playing safe so much that it’s time we start playing “(Un)Safe” to explore what lies ahead of us. These speakers are living examples of what all we can achieve by choosing to risk.”
