There are many students with some special qualities in them but have a lack of confidence and hide from the teacher. And, you all know most they are backbenchers.
Not everyone is good in studies but is creative. Whenever one talks about what he is doing, the second question comes is what are you thinking about your life and future goals. In the last season, we’ve seen new innovators and all of the young Indians who are not just dreaming as part of the big imaginative process but believe that it can turn into reality. They came from a very underprivileged background, lack of entitlement but what they were doing was not very selfish to become rich and famous despite it was just about changes in the lives of people.
In its seven episodes, TED talks India is highlighting inspiring performers and speakers all over India including a young man whose age is 13-year-old inventor creator life-saving tool to wipe out hunger. We really got inspired by Shahrukh Khan of taking a step ahead to bring out new ideas and also help India to discover new things worldwide from TED participants.
In the last season, Shah Rukh Khan selected 8 stories and that are:
- Shelja Sen: How to talk (and listen) to your children
- Ajit Narayanan: A word game to communicate in any language

It’s a very good platform for all those who lack behind financially or not getting support from any of the people whether to talk about the family, partner or working area. In the last season, Shahrukh Khan said: “On the show, I witnessed so much passion — people with path-breaking ideas are disrupting the shackles of the impossible and finding solutions!”
