Here’s Great Tip: INDIA – Engineering the future of innovation | Siddharth Rajhans | TEDxSCEM


Here is Something You Should See…


In this captivating TEDx talk, Siddharth Rajhans, one of India’s prominent TEDx speakers, through his years of experience of giving keynotes to engineering students across the country tries to encapsulate the ideology of Indian innovation and how we have to engineer the future of our country with the same pace and determination with which India has become a pioneer engineering nation in the world.

Siddharth explains the classic gap of engineering education in India and how it is churning out more tech professionals and fewer innovators. He connects this concept with the idea of “Make in India” and why it is paramount for our generation to think “India first” rather than focusing purely on personal goals. Known for his trademark wit and spontaneity in keynotes, Siddharth emphasizes on the need to keep contributing towards India’s development – along the lines of the Sustainable development goals of the UN and trying to bridge the lack of patriotic influence in our engineering education.

This crisp TEDx video is packed with humor, taking digs at societal notions and pseudosciences along with the current culture of colleges, relationships, and so on – and weaves a lasting impression on the audience who might connect with college life in India. Siddharth is a well-known innovator and Harvard educated entrepreneur trying to make a difference to India’s education system through his keynotes, work, and research. His interaction with over a million college students over 6 years is a testimony of his love for India and his effectiveness as a keynote speaker. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
