  • "India is going to be a superpower" is what the world says. But are we really ready to be a superpower in the true sense? Any superpower needs to be powerful in every area and sector to stand out in the competition in this small world. But in reality, India lacks majorly in the field of education. Many intellectuals in India say that the education in our country has become defunct. Its because the education that we receive in our institutions is far from reality, it is far from what actually works out in outside world. 65 years have passed by since we become an independent nation but very less has been upgraded in the way education is imparted. Its not that nothing has changed but far more new techniques should have been implemented till date. In recent times, it has been seen that new and improved technology such as online learning, projector learning is being implemented in schools and colleges. But that is only a change in the medium of educating students. Talent recognition and training & learning on that parameters need to be implemented so as to improve the quality of students coming out of these elite institutes. More importance should be given to practical project works rather than traditional learning.
