After months of dedicated effort and hard work, a team of students from Shaheed Bhagat Singh College has come together to organize the first edition of TEDx SBSC on 23rd February, 2019 at Vallabhbhai Patel Chest Auditorium.
The young minds at TEDx SBSC believe that the youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow. Keeping this in mind, they aim to build a platform that allows them to spread ideas that concern the technology-driven Generation Z.
Gen Z is the demographic cohort following the millennials, which in much simpler terms, means those born after the mid-90s.
This generation is the most evolved form of humans ever, and what makes them stand out from the previous generations is their early exposure to the internet. Since they are living in a world of constant upgrades, their attention spans are comparatively short, which makes them less focused, but at the same time, it makes them more efficient.
TEDx SBSC has a diverse speaker line up that contains hosts of eminent personalities, which includes the following:
1. Karan Singh Magic (India’s Leading Psychological Illusionist)
India’s leading psychological illusionist, Karan fuses behavioural psychology, sub-conscious suggestion, hypnosis and misdirection to create a unique brand of modern magic that involves mind reading.
Having performed for some of the greatest magicians such as ‘Derren Brown’, ‘Penn & Teller’ and ‘Dynamo’, he has done over 100 shows in the country. His performances have a theatrical element to them, as Karan uses his easy charm and sense of humour to completely disarm his audience.
2. Manish Tyagi (Stand-up Comedian)
With more than 89k subscribers on YouTube, Manish is one of the most recognized faces of the stand-up comedy industry. He used to be a Commander in the Indian Navy before he decided to become a stand-up comic in 2014.
