Q. What is the need for an event like Yukti?
Yukti is an workshop event organized by like minded individuals from the group Nirmukta, with the help of our Sponsors. The mission of this event is to provide a forum for discussion of science and freethought, with the overarching goal of increasing the scientific temper of local citizens. The schedule details the discussion topics.
Yukti is also a unique place to network. The event is targeted at working professionals from a wide array of industries. We have provided for a long sessions specifically to allow you to meet new interesting people.
Q. Who can attend the workshop?
Anyone who is exited by science, and is interested in the challenges facing the nation on this front. The workshop will involve multiple activities, including lectures by Narendra Nayak, known for his fiery take down of superstitions and wide repertoire of demonstrations which enthrall the participants.
Q. Can I bring friends along?
Please do! The event is more fun when you're with like-minded friends, and you'll leave with enough fodder for long discussions in the months to come.
Q. What do I have to bring along?
Nothing! The workshop is aimed at working professionals, and does not require anything beyond a critical, fun-loving mind. You'll have plenty of opportunities to interact and participate. We will provide the required notes and media that go along with the event. Just make it to the venue on time.
Q. Can I be an unruly, loud brat?
Tempers can get high when discussing and questioning core beliefs held by a majority of the population. Free and open discussions are welcome (and encouraged). Raised voices are not. We will evict you at the remotest hint of belligerence. We have keen observers who can spot a troublemaker miles away, and master pehelwaans who can lift a 100 kg weight to miles away.
Q. Ok, I'm sold! How do I register?
This bears repeating: before you head over to register, ensure you can make it to the event. We have limited seats, so when we reserve one for you, we expect you to attend. The fee is just a token fee - with the intention of covering the workshop costs. So it wont cost you a bomb (not this time, anyway).
When you're ready, head over to the registration page, and enter your details.
Q. What does the registration price cover?
Your registration fee covers your attendance to the workshop, and lunch, tea and snacks on both days. If you're travelling or flying into the city, you'll need to arrange your accommodation.
Q. Can I present on a topic?
Though the schedule is packed, we have set aside some time for Lightning Talks.
If you're passionate about something, and think the talk will benefit the wider mission of the workshop, get in touch, and let us know, and we'll see if we have a slot available for you.
Q. Did I hear something about many prizes? And fun events?
You did? ;)
