The Fringe: Live on the Edge
This is where you have no limits. This is the part of TGP 2016 where you can truly be what you want to be and express yourself about anything. This is where the rebels and nonconformists gather and talk about anything and everything.
Fringe/Geekery is the track which hosts the content that doesn’t fit anywhere else. If your talk is the square peg and the other tracks are round, come to Fringe and find your place - we’ll talk about anything that you’re passionate about and want to tell us about. The zanier and more offbeat the better - we don’t have guidelines for Fringe, because there aren’t any - there is no content limitation and no restriction - come and tell us about your passion (except for the overall restrictions placed on politics and religion).
In particular, the geekery aspect of this track is unique: While modern civilisation may exist purely due to technology and the inventions of the gifted geeks among us, there are few platforms where geeks get to communicate and discuss their vision of what can be, and what must be.
This year, we hope to touch upon forward-looking sessions, participate in sessions that bridge the gap between where we are today and the fantastic future that geekdom is envisioning and creating: Renewable energy and the end of the oil economy, Elon Musk, Artificial Intelligence and interplanetary diaspora, and perhaps the end of electronic privacy as a concept.
Proposals with a flavor of futurism, rather than a rehashing of the present, are especially welcome for this track. Promote geekdom, adopt a babygeek today!
Rewriting Mythology for present Day India
Mythology has a great impact in the cultural development of the society. The stagnation of the mythological endeavour brings about societal dysfunction. Indian mythology has been rewritten multiple times to suit the societal needs and reflects the time we live in.
In a dynamic society whose values are changing by the moment,mythology has been in constant flux. Today we want to set our Mythologics gods and heroes in stone and hence pave the way to destroy the every essence of the ancient fabric that has been woven through time. Epics such has Ramayana and Mahabharata have been rewritten to suit more contemporary values and ideas but today we want to ensure that our characters stay in that age and time while the world moves forward. let us view the mythological world through the lenses contemporary values.
An open mind and having an ability to differentiate between Mythology and Religion
