TEDx Hyderabad is not mere an event, we will develop TEDx culture in the city: Viiveck Verma, Co-organiser

The theme of this year’s TEDxHyderabad is “Do”. You are what you do.

The theme DO was chosen as it a diverse and it has no one meaning. DO means different things to different people. You are what you do. Doing is more important than talking. Doers score over mere talkers. Doers change the world. This is a very meaningful theme - a small yet powerful word”, said Viiveck Verma, the co-organizer of TEDxHyderabad.

TEDxHyderabad is organsed by SAHE(Society for Advancement of Human Endeavour), a not for profit society.
