Karan was invited to lecture the students at SDPS School of Architecture, Indore. He talked about Neurosynthesis, a blueprint for the first city on Mars along with his thesis on the smart city development in Indore which is named smart city vs happy city.
Karan was delighted to share his design philosophy to an enthusiastic audience. Karan remembers 'I had planned to speak for half an hour, but the lecture went on for about 90 minutes due to an overwhelming amount of questions the students had. It was a great experience for me at this stage of my career, and I enjoyed it a lot.'
