Education In Emerging Indian Society
Education is not the amount of information that is put into your brain and runs riot there, undigested, all your life. Education should aim for physical, mental, moral and spiritual development of students. Education is the Foundation stone for nation-building. A modern education system based on India 's rich cultural heritage will be a perfect Synthesis of eastern maturity and western activity. Education in the Republic of India falls under the control of both the central government and the states, with some responsibilities lying with the centre and the state having autonomy for others. The various articles of the Indian constitution provide for education as a fundamental right. Though still by and large, the Higher education in India is controlled by the government and is highly subsidized, in the recent years, private sector is making successful forays in the realm of higher Indian education, particularly in Professional courses.
