The world ,as we know it, has transformed entirely in recent years. With technological advances being made on a day-to-day basis,
we are now more connected than ever before; we can accomplish more than ever before and find new horizons every day. Yet some
fundamental questions remain – are we able to use all the tools and information at hand effectively? Is it enough to find new
horizons – or are their more significant meanings attached with every possible step we advance to?
It can be gauged that the most useful skill to equip oneself with is the ability to make sense of a world drowning in information and untangling the chaos. Having established the same, one can ask – how do we make sense of this chaos?
Perhaps making sense of this chaos might not solve all our problems; maybe it is in the mess that the essential fragments of our lives lie. Perhaps the disorder does have an order after all, with only fresh lenses needed to understand what lies at stake.
Keeping this in mind, TEDxIIMRanchi brings its ninth edition to life with the theme “The Era of Concerted Chaos.” The event shall feature prominent speakers from around the country who will enable us to see things differently, understand our world better and provide a more enhanced vision of what lies ahead.

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 TEDxIIMRanchi, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxIIMRanchi 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.
