TED event at Hindustan University

Was pleasantly surprised to see this newspaper ad. announcing a TED event in my OMR neighbourhood.  In fact,it is being organised at Hindustan University, located next door to our apartments complex at Padur.  So close, and yet beyond my reach, tariff-wise -  as all TED events usually are. But then we would have access to the TED talks when they are uploaded on the Net eventually. If you are registered with TED website, you get e-mail notification whenever they upload a set of TED talks.
Speakers listed for Hindustan University TED event include corporate seniors, creative artistes, choreographer, cameraman, dancer, disaster management expert,  human resettlement specialist, and art director and set designer Thota Tharani who has worked in over 100 movies , including  Nayagan, Sivaji and Dasavathaaram.
They would address a select audience in an auditorium with limited seating. The day-long programme, Sat.Feb.16, starts at 9 a m, and seating is on the first-come, first-served basis. A TED speech  usually lasts  18 minutes, and though  there are shorter TED talks, of 6 to 8 min. duration.
Invitees are categorized as students, academics and corporates, presumably, with varying registration fee. E-mail , or call Venu Menon -8056047466; Ravi Kiran - 9994286098.
