KIT Thomas Oration 2012

The KIT Thomas Oration is an annual event held in April to commemorate the memory of the founder Mr. K. I. Thomas. An eminent speaker is invited to address the senior students, the faculty, parents and the public on different issues, mainly pertaining to education.

This year, the oration was held on the 5th of April. Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, founder of Isha Foundation was the Chief Guest at this annual event. Yogi, mystic and visionary, Sadhguru is a spiritual master with a difference and his name evoked a lot of excitement in Chennai. The hall was packed to capacity and the topic “Education – Expanding Horizons” was of great interest to all.
In his speech the Sadhguru spoke about how competition is the driving force behind education today, rather than being a means to enlarge the horizons of human perception. Knowledge is not a problem but being identified with something is hugely limiting. He added that an adult needs to be as flexible as a child is.
