Babu holds our rapt attention as he takes centre stage to talk to us about rationality and humanity. His attempt to bring about a change albeit slow but is gathering momentum! He tells us how superstitions are ruling the roost in our everyday life and the immense harm they bring with them, sometimes even death. Powerful and thought provoking, Babu tries to convince us to accept rationalism and humanism for any kind of progress we want to make for better futures of mankind.

One of the signatories to the Humanist Manifesto 2003, World Humanist Congress speaker, past director of IEHU; Babu Gogineni in two words is an ethical rationalist. From a television commentator to an international humanist and activist, he dedicates his progress to only rationalism, logic and love for humanity. Writing revolutionary articles in French, English and Telugu is one of the many things he does to inspire a million thoughts, while speaking on international forums about Science, Human Rights, Secularism and Democracy.
