Guest Lectures


History has proved time and again that genius inspires genius. While talent is what it takes to hit a target no one else can, it takes genius to hit a target that none can see. Here at Pragyan, we introduce you to some of the best thinkers of this era - men and women who have explored the edges of what is already known, and beyond.



Over the years, Pragyan has witnessed lectures by the likes of Dr. Noam Chomsky (MIT), Jimmy Wales (Wikipedia), Dr. Loren Acton (NASA), Dr. Philippe Lebrun (CERN), Dr. John Mather (Physics Nobel, 2006), Dr. Ramesh Jain (IEEE Multimedia), Richard Stallman (GNU Linux) and Dr. Subramaniam Swamy (Janata Party) among others. This spring, Pragyan 2012 promises yet another memorable congregation of ignited minds at NIT Trichy, with its refreshing and informative Guest Lecture series. Come, awaken the genius in you!
