In planning for TEDxBangaloreWomen 2016, they asked their community: What matters to you now? And in emails and comments and even drawings from TEDxWomen organizers and our network of longtime attendees, one powerful theme emerged: time.
Time is personal. They all have the same amount of time 24 hours a day and yet most of us feel we never have enough.
Even with today's latest inventions, technology, science, we can't make time or stop time or can we?
Come explore time zones, time travel, time outs and times together. They will explore the conventions and challenges of time.
They will ask the hard questions. Because isn't it about time:
To find long-term solutions to climate change, poverty, immigration, violence, race, gender and economic inequities?
To lead for different outcomes?
To challenge our 'time-saving' technologies?
To pay full attention and be fully present for ourselves as well as others?
In our evening together in Bangalore, we will hear talks that offer up ideas, stories, solutions.
The tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Ahalya Matthan is one of the best recognised perfumers in the country having worked with several brands to build recognizable fragrance profiles for them. A deep interest in fragrances led her to acquire a Masters Degree in Perfumery Science and Technology from the prestigious ISIPCA, after spending her childhood years among the perfume vats of her family’s incense stick business.
As someone who celebrates stories and the impact they have through fragrances, it came as a natural extension to use sarees to tell the stories that are relevant to India through the #100sareepact. Having run the course of the pact, it became evident that the stories that remained yet untold and were hard to hear were indeed the tales of those who brought sarees to life.
The true story of the saree and its journey into our wardrobes remains one that is mentioned in hushed voices. In an initiative to make all saree stories relevant, The Registry of Sarees was founded with textile expert Kausalya Sathyakumar and business strategist Apoorva Sadanand. The objective is to bridge the gap between weavers and saree enthusiasts extending the scope of narration of India’s stories. The Registry of Sarees believes in the importance of retaining the diversity of our country by keeping these.
