“Shall flutter like a sparrow............
and into oblivion I will fly”.
India is one of the few countries in the world that is blessed with rich cultural heritage, one of the oldest human civilizations, and highly hard working pool of young people seeking new knowledge and education to raise India's stature to the top three economies in the world. This requires the development and proliferation of quality higher educational systems in India.
In addition, educational institutions of higher learning are called upon to serve as economic engines of local and global economies and must provide highly trained and globally competitive workforce of the future.
