Throughout the world, in both democracies and dictatorships alike, radicalism is on the rise.

From Mythology to Management

Mythology consisted of stories told to generations of children and adults alike- not only for entertainment, but because they contained insights into this very human nature. As much as we might like to think otherwise for all our progress, human nature doesn't change. Never have we needed to understand our fellow humans better than in the fast moving modern managerial circuits.

Delivering a talk on this topic will be Mr. Devdutt Pattanaik, a leadership consultant, mythologist and author whose works focus largely on the areas of myth, mythology, and also management. He has written a number of books including The Pregnant King and Jaya: An Illustrated Retelling of the Mahabharata (2010). He serves as the chief belief officer of Future Group, one of India's largest retailers and also writes a column for the newspaper MiD DAY.

Music Beyond Boundaries

Music has since time immemorial dissolved all artificially created boundaries. To throw light on how music breaks political, social and regional barriers, we have a unique talk-cum-demonstration to be delivered by Mr. Anil Srinivasan.

Mr. Anil Srinivasan is a classical pianist born in Madras, India and educated at the University of Southern California and at Columbia University, New York. He is best known for his collaborative work with Carnatic vocalist Sikkil Gurucharan, and is well-renowned for his knowledge of verious types of music from across the globe.
