Independent Thought Logo

The Logo was developed keeping in mind various fundamental ethos of on which the organization Independent Thought was conceived.

The Buddha’s, quest for ‘Nirvana’ focusing on personal spiritual development and the attainment of Enlightenment at Gaya, Bihar (Erstwhile Magadh), India; epitomizes the concept of Independent Thinking; tested in time and space, is the force behind in the shadow.

The Small Letter “i” from the word Independent here signifying an individual and complete Word “Thought” together represent the philosophy that the Thought is always greater than an Individual. The concept and design was developed by Creative team of Artist Rakesh Jha and Founder, Vikram Srivastava.
