"Evolution of Education in India: a historical perspective" takes a look at the status of education in India during the ancient times, investigates its evolution over the millennia and proposes its future course. The first chapter takes a brief look at the effects of foreign domination on India’s educational scene. The second chapter provides variegated education related perspectives of different thinkers as well as practices in different countries. The third chapter places the current Indian education scene in perspective and makes well thought out “non-glamorous” suggestions to improve the entire system. It harks back to India’s civilizational glory in the field of education in an attempt to revive the people’s traditional attitude towards education even as they assimilate the latest and the best in this field in order to resume their traditional leadership in the field of pedagogy. There was a time when students from as far as Greece and China – as well as other parts of the world – used to take pride in studying in India’s educational institutions. India needs to resurrect that glory. This volume emphatically advocates that this can be achieved if the country’s policy makers marry India’s traditional systems with the avant-garde.
