The country is going through an Education revolution of sorts. The plan layout for Education has been increased in an unprecedented proportion. In addition, the self financing model in Education has come to stay in a very distinct manner. In all this scenario of vast expansion, at the initiative of the Government and/or private trusts and societies, lot many challenges have emerged for the academic world to take the country to its rightful place in the next one decade. Fortunately, the entire world is shifting towards knowledge economy, which has always been our USP from India.
To my mind, the critical parameters for Education are going to be quality, flexibility and relevance. In addition, networking of Universities with the corporate world will be another very strong requirement in the coming days.
I believe that we are entering into a phase which can be called "Survival of the Fittest" in Academic World. The "Fittest" word, of course in this context means the Vidyapeeth which is very open, flexible, ready for new experimentation and which in addition inculcates the strong values in the youth keeping in view our National heritage and character. I am sure the major stake holders of the Education process will join Lingaya's Vidyapeeth, which will help them, in realizing their objectives and make them potential Nation Builders.
With Best Wishes
