So mark your calendars and get ready to enjoy your favourite Old Hindi Songs rendered by some amazingly talented IIT Alumni on the saxophone, accordion, keyboard, guitar etc., accompanying our very own Kishor Kumars, Rafis, Latas and Ashas. The main performance will last for about two hours, and will be followed by a chance for anyone in the audience to sing with accompaniment from the orchestra – hopefully we will unearth hidden talent among alumni.

It was heartening to see the enthusiastic response by the IIT fraternity to Arvind Pendse’s lecture on 25th August 2013.
Unfortunately we ran out of time and he had to rush through the material in the second half. Subsequently, many participants expressed their desire for a follow up talk, to understand the concepts and get their knowledge to a level that they can actually use it to make their lives better. In this talk, he will explain in more detail, the issues and concepts that were introduced but not discussed last time. He will spend more time on techniques to reprogram mid brain. He will also talk about IQ and Happiness and Social Psychology applications.
