|Subodh Kant Sahay|
Minister of Tourism,
Government of IndiaThe Indian civilization has made many seminal contributions in education to the world. The Nalanda University, which existed almost 2000 years ago, is still regarded by the historians as one of the world’s first great universities. Modern India must work hard to recapture the greatness that was once there in our education system. We have to create many new world class universities for educating our youth.

In India, we are very shy of recognising excellence. We need to become bolder in identifying talent.
The good work being done in the education sector by people in the country needs to be recognised and awarded. The system of awarding talent has to be fair and transparent.

Indian institutions are not there in the top 200 position of any of the survey, despite the fact that the country is home to large number of universities and millions of students. Research publication and patent filing is not up to the mark. There is an urgent need for us to develop a new model for fostering creativity and research.
The system has to be revolutionised, a drastic change is required. Research activities can enhance the image of the college or university. It is right time to think about having innovations in our universities.

High Commissioner for Sri Lanka to India
It is important that we should start thinking about the reasons due to which our education system has started failing, despite the fact that India had very lofty standards of education during the ancient era.
Great advances in education had been made in the times of Ashoka and Buddha. In this modern day and age, it is important to find out the reasons that why our children receive better education
We need more innovation in the education sector. It is only through innovation that we can improve the state of our education.
