Welcome to the home of Yukti 2011, an event to promote scientific temper. Yukti will take place on Febuary 19-20, 2011 at the premises of Karnataka Rajya Vijnana Parishat at Banashankari, Bangalore. Yukti would not be possible without our sponsors.

Yukti has concluded! Thank you for your participation. We've recorded the event, and will put it up on video sites soon. Await our email.

We've brought together the foremost experts in the war against pseudo science, providing the participants with a chance to indulge in discussions and talks on all things rational. Take a look at our speakers.

Yukti promises stimulating talks, and fun discussions. It is targeted at working professionals and students from Bangalore. The spirit of Yukti is captured in this poem by Arvind Iyer:

The Reign of Reason

We insist the past is not wisdom's sole source...
But among us you'll find no idol-smasher!
Wielding high thinking, and never brute force,
The reign of Reason let us now usher!

Birth as a measure of worth we reject!
In our world, an upstart's no gatecrasher!
Equal opportunity is our project.
The reign of Reason let us now usher!

Prayer does not count as contribution.
Of what use is a passive well-wisher?
Our charity will exceed Faith's ration!
The reign of Reason let us now usher!

To the crowd's convention we won't prostrate;
Or slump on desks as a paid pen-pusher!
We'll educate, organize, agitate!
The reign of Reason let us now usher!


The sessions have been designed to be interactive, with the intention of keeping high audience participation. What's more, you can present your topic of interest in the lightning talks.

All the events are hands-free. We'll provide any material, and notes that may be required. You'll also leave with goodies in the form of CDs, media, etc.
