Indian education system has witnessed numerous transformations over the past few years. The country has embraced innovative teaching-learning practices, adapted to advanced technologies and the concept of international collaborations, with open arms. All this has resulted in India emerging as the biggest pool of talent and competitive global citizens, across the world.
The New Education Policy, which is likely to be introduced soon, will be a step forward towards making India a global education hub. All this would not have been possible without the efforts of country’s educationists and educators, who with their policies and path breaking initiatives have reshaped the way education is being perceived and imparted in the country.
