    When the survival of Indian industries will be on inhouse innovation, then there will be a demand for quality education and quality students and education will improve. Till technology and ideas are available liberally from other countries,one needs only trained operators not original thinkers. Till such time present style of education will continue.

    The BPO and IT industry in India today is a perfect example of what you have stated. The IT engineers here are no less than trained operators who are only required to perform within the given framework with little or no innovation. BPO is nothing but as the name suggests, perform the back office chores for foreign companies! Very little or almost no stress is given for original and authentic ideas! A fact that fully reflects our education system which again reflects back the kind of work done here!

    We should not be pessimistic about our educational system, because it reflects what the market wants. Today in the ladder of development we are not a innovative society but we can operate complex technologies based on the education we have obtained. For example India makes $ 20 billion worth of generic drugs and exports $15 billion worth. Generic drugs are drugs whose patent protection has finished. So Indian companies take up the manufacture of these cheap drugs at cheap costs. Today this is appropriate with our level of funding and abilities. As we go along higher up in the development ladder we shall enter the innovation stage also and then the demand for education will accordingly be of a different type than today. In IT India is exporting its comparative advantage of relatively cheaper knowledge worker as against China which is exporting its comparative advantage of cheaper labor by being a manufacturer of goods at a cheap rate. Nothing wrong. Innovation requires huge capital which is the advantage of richer nations like USA,Germany etc.

    Your inputs have really given me something to hope for and from that perspective it does look good. Yet the general trend of following what the market demands, isn't it harmful in the long run??? And as far as funds for innovation are concerned, i think we do not lack money, only thing is it is channeled into all wrong places such as larger-than-life statues and memorial parks of people whose ideals we no longer follow. If somehow all that money can be brought into more important sectors such as research etc. the scenario can be changed in no time.

    We are a capital deficit country, in the sense that surplus funds are negligible. We are becoming a richer nation and that is why we are now called an emerging economy. Even China is a capital deficit country. The populations are so large that per capita capital gets reduced considerably. Countries like USA, Germany, Japan, France, UK are examples of capital abundant countries. Innovation requires huge capital investment with no guarantee of success. It is a risk which poor countries like ours can not afford at today's level of development. For example in a leading multi national company for every 50 products researched and developed by them, 49 are discarded and only one is commercialized. Indian economy has still to attain such critical volumes for investing billions of rupees in innovation. The challenge is to reduce the time to attain such productive volumes. That is why the money spent on schemes like statues etc even if diverted to innovation will not make a dent, but could be more productively used in social schemes. Thank you for appreciating the line of discussion.

    In this respect, Tirupati Devasthanam is doing a yeoman service to the education system. Because of its huge income, it's not only maintaining a university,but also aiding those institutions that strive for innovations in the education system. It also encourages those creative youngsters by giving them scholarships and allowing them to study in any foreign or Indian universities of their choice. But we need more such philanthropic institutions.

    It is a small but contributory step in the path leading to society becoming creative and innovation diven. Unless these are demanded from Indian education system by Indian industries Indian education will not deliver them.

    Education system in india need to be changed. It has evolved as a business. It is a serious issue. Because the development of a country depends on the growth of education. Money plays a major role here. Institutions are charging much fees starting from kindergarden to graduation. Parents are suffering much to pay fee for their children. So changes has to be done in terms of fees and the quality of education given to the children.

    Money power plays a big role in getting seats even if one has good marks. I read that in TN a medical seat is going for Rs 2 crores in private colleges.


    It's the same here. Buy any seat with money in any college. Education has become a lucrative business.


    No doubt increasing number of Indian students are taking admissions abroad where they get their course of choice and it many times is cheaper than costs in India. I know a father who sent his son to study for his 11th and12th equivalent school course abroad as he said he can get admission without hassle in a good college and cost will also be less. He succeeded and both are today doctors abroad.


    In India education still based on money. In foreign countries they are taking money as well as providing good education for their students and based on merit they are providing jobs for the right candidates. In India several colleges taking money from students and didn't give good education. Some colleges didn't get AICTE permission for conducting courses.

    Even I have seen so many schools are running just on a brand name without proper affiliation.."proposed CBSE affiliation" , and parents also don't think twice before admitting their kids to such schools.
