Are you a dangerous optimist? | Anuradha Prabhudesai | TEDxCRCE
Published on Jul 6, 2015
Whilst all of us sit peacefully in the comfort of our homes, many bravehearts battle against all odds to keep us safe. Through sheer determination, grit, dedication and optimism they achieve the unimaginable. Hear Anuradha Prabhudesai's talk on what makes us a dangerous optimist.
Ms. Anuradha is the founder of Lakshya Foundation, an Indian foundation committed to the cause of creating an awareness of the valor of our soldiers among the civilians. An ex-banker, she is attempting to bridge the gap between armed forces and civilians. In the last ten years, Anuradha has visited Kargil 14 times, and her work has been cherished by the army. In her journey so far, she has travelled to Ladakh with 550 civilians giving them first-hand experience of army life, delivered more than 300 lectures across schools and has arranged get-togethers of army wives and war widows. She has published thousands of copies of Hindi poems authored by her and several booklets on the Kargil martyrs. Through Lakshya Foundation, she spreads the saga of sacrifice of these young soldiers and aims to instill the spirit of patriotism in the citizens of India by adopting various means such as visual presentations and narration of feats of soldiers of the victorious Kargil War.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
