Education is a multiverse in itself, encompassing several dimensions. At the 12th edition of The New Indian Express' ThinkEdu Conclave, we intend to serve as a convergence point for all the various aspects of this field. Hence, the theme of ThinkEdu Conclave 2024 is Maha Kumbh: The Convergence Edition.

As India's largest education conclave enters its 12th year, we are reaffirming our commitment to the cause of education. As every year, ThinkEdu wants to nudge the minds of people with debates and discussions to dissect ideas and to provoke thoughts on what education means to the country. Not merely a means to upward mobility but to life-altering perceptions.

Our previous speakers have included the late President Pranab Mukherjee, the late President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, former Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu, former Vice-President M Hamid Ansari, union ministers, chief ministers, policymakers, educationists and edupreneurs, along with social scientists and spiritual leaders.

Our mantra remains...

Think education. Think progress. ThinkEdu Conclave.
