There is the face of the graphicdesigner creating Brand India. And the social entrepreneur puttinghis design skills to create lasting value in society and theenvironment.

DESIGNTECHNOLOGYMANAGEMENT(1951)(1961)(1961)Nehru had the initial Vision of taking Technology, Management and Designeducation as the pillars for progress of India. Institutions were set up aroundsame time too. IIT Kharagpur (1951), IIM Calcutta (1961), National Institute ofDesign (1961).And we all know that Design Education fell way behind the other two.
