Can India Become the Global Educational Hub?
| Education Jagat - 01 Jun 2018

All these points of personal quest must be answered in the affirmative and options made available in one form or the other if we want to make India a Global Educational Hub. Do we presently have any of our Universities, Institutions and Schools that can boost of such environment and thus can attract a foreign student to our shores. This also seeks answers to the first question as defined below:
  The relentless march of technology and the disruptive forces that it has unleashed in every area has also impacted the world of education, knowledge transfer and training. It is not for nothing that MOOC’s have been introduced  the best universities of the world like Harvard, Stanford, MIT and others. ICT and ITeS are in no way going to allow confining human knowledge, experiences and thoughts to the four walls of the Universities, Institutions and Research laboratories. The rapid transfer, sharing and exchange of ideas, experiments and even thoughts is a reality today and this is only going to accelerate and grow with coming era. Thus it is going to make the idea of education limited by geographical boundaries of any entity nonexistent, in-viable and unimaginable. So we have to think whether under these conditions can we create India or its geographical confines as an Educational Hub.
    Coming to the third question, the enormous, unbounded and highly enriching spiritual, intellectual, transformational and culturally vibrant and entrancing experience that India can offer is no doubt something very real, very different and very valuable when compared with any other idea of experience, any other culture or country can provide, to whole humanity not to speak of to only young global students. However, in order to share, engage or invoke any of such experience in others one has to learn, explore and master these ideas, techniques and life styles oneself and cultivate them in every citizens of India before we can ask others to do so. The mental attitude, the state of being and living, must be totally and fully evolved in all of us to those highest and esoteric standards of truth, nobility and purity. However, the reality is that most of us Indians have lost the knowledge, practice and passion for all these beautiful and enriching thoughts and ideas. The question therefore is to bring them back and to adopt, adapt and convert them into present day living style; are we as a Nation and people willing and ready to give up our materialistic, dishonest, corrupt and irreligious ways?
    It will take ages and eons if at all it can be done now, under the current Indian and world scenario. This I believe is the only and singular way for India to become the Global Knowledge Hub rather than the be merely an Educational Hub.
