The temporary home of the Indian National Interest.

TED stands for Technology Entertainment & Design = a concept, a state of being, a way of thinking – an IDEA worth spreading.
It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope has become ever broader. TODAY the annual conference brings together the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes)!
ENTER the TED Fellows program – designed to bring together young and old world-changers and trailblazers who have shown unusual accomplishment and exceptional courage.
The program targets individuals from the Asia/Pacific region, Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America and the Middle East, though anyone from anywhere in the world, age 18 and over, is welcome to apply.
Who fits the bill? You? Your client? Your manager? Your industry leader? Your community mentor?
