There is a thin line between History and Heritage. History becomes the most boring subject during school education, but Heritage continues to flow through our veins. What happens when we try to describe History through Heritage. This session by famous Heritage Activist and Educator, Vikramjit Singh Rooprai will unfold mysterious layers of our Heritage and show, how history unfolds when we change our perspective.

Vikramjit Singh Rooprai is a Teacher Trainer and Heritage Activist, who developed techniques to use History, to teach subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Astronomy, and Business Management. He started learning computer programming, while he was in class 6 and was a professional software developer before he entered class 12. He secured a lucrative job, without even attempting graduation. In his 14 years of IT career, he designed Digital Marketing campaigns for over 80 brands from the Fortune 500 list. He established ‘The Heritage Photography Club’ and ‘Youth for Heritage Foundation’, which works with government and non-government bodies to promote heritage across India. Members of these bodies keep an active eye on endangered monuments across the country and inform the authorities
if any threat is found. They also organize Photography Exhibitions, Lectures and awareness drive to
help culture.
Vikramjit turned into a Teacher Trainer and established ‘Heritageshaala’, where his team sets up Heritage Labs in schools. He is known for his sessions like ‘Where did we go wrong in teaching history’, which he delivered at IIM Ahmedabad a few years back, and ‘The Curse called Education’,
his most recent TEDx Talk. Vikramjit has also served as an Auditor for UNESCO, to ensure that key monuments under ASI are disabled friendly. He is also an active member of the International Council on Monuments and Sites, taking care of their activities with the Education Sector. He trains teachers
on Inclusiveness, Sustainability and Interdisciplinary Project Based Learning.
