Hacking into the Indian education system | Debarghya Das | TEDxBangalore

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Debarghya Das wanted to help a few friends get their examination results before anyone else but he ended up writing a script that exposed stark anomalies in the grading policies of the Indian education system. He shares his insights from the hack and outlines options to leverage technology for changing education in India.Debarghya Das is an aspiring computer scientist. Last year, he published a blog post about how he wrote a script that eventually exposed stark anomalies in the grading policies of the Indian education system. Having previously worked at Coursera and Google, he is graduating with a Bachelors and Masters degree in Computer Science from Cornell University. Debarghya is extremely passionate both about using technology for large scale societal benefit as well as solving difficult core Computer Science problems. He does research in Artificial Intelligence at Cornell's Robot Learning Lab, where he worked on helping robots like Baxter and PR2 efficiently navigate themselves in human environments. In addition, Debarghya's research at the Cornell Linguistics Lab led to the creation of the world's first accurate tongue controlled game.About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Our case is different but I've gone through the same pain like you. But I'm like "holy cow, I'm not going to let pain ruin my life". So, despite my illness, I'm doing things I'm NOT supposed to do, I go out traveling/exploring whenever I can, I take piles of painkillers etc. Well, I do, what doctors tell me not to because why not? Their advise has never worked. My guts have.

I once was a bully to an "ugly person" now I'm really not caring about his appearance I like his personality I realised being nice to someone with different disabilities is good.

i agree with camogamer. rofl. it looked like the same amount of strength you would use as if you would putt a golf ball. the "golf club" was like a piece of wood and thin as hell. no way it could of moved the ball that far. but i've watched the other videos and they looked smooth. keep up the good work.
