What is TED?
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks.
It was conceived by Richard Saul Wurman in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged. Today topics from science to business to global issues are covered in more than 100 languages.
TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. This community believes passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world.
It is a media organization that posts talks online for free distribution under the slogan "ideas worth spreading."
What is TEDx
A TEDx event is a local gathering where live TED-like talks and performances are shared with the community. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis..
TEDx is global community of doers who believe in the power of sharing ideas. It aims to offer a globally networked platform--one that not only helps promote innovative thinking locally, but that spreads those ideas globally.
TEDx endeavors to become a local forum for ideas within community that inspires people to change their lives, their futures and ultimately their world. It aims to be open and adaptable, and seeks to reach and impact diverse audiences.
What is TEDx KCCollege?
Keeping this in mind, and sharing the TED belief, TEDx KCCollege aims to open dialogue and allow the convergence of the neglected and often unseen into focus with the fitting theme ‘Seeing the Unseen’.
Our objective is to create a TEDxKCCollege Community which encourages the discussion of the often sidelined. We hope to create a platform that allows students, artists, poets, writers, innovators, entrepreneurs, change-makers, thinkers and anybody willing to engage in a tedx event, to contribute and query the norm..

The Hyderabad (Sind) National Collegiate Board, (H(S)NC Board) was founded in the year 1921 in an undivided India. It was destined to play a pivotal role in the lives of millions of students. So, even when the partition of India sent the entire sub-continent into a state of chaos, the Late Vidyasagar Principal K. M. Kundnani and Late Barrister H.G. Advani, the founding fathers of the Board, fought against the onslaught of circumstances and established the debutant college - R. D. National College in Bandra in the then Bombay, in June, 1949. The founding fathers soon opened their second college of the H(S)NC Board, Kishinchand Chellaram College in 1954.

Since work is worship, it is but natural that KC College has been my altar of worship since the past many years. It is indeed a great honour to lead this college and I accept it with great humility. The foundation that was laid and nurtured by our Founder-Principal, Vidyasagar Late Prof.K.M Kundnani has been built into a great academic institution by those after him like Late Prof J.K Bhambhani, Mrs N.A.Bathija, Mrs N.H.Karamchandani and Dr Manjula Nichani. I am fortunate to have had the guiding light of such stalwarts and they inspire me to take this institution forward to touch greater heights.
